Voice Prompts through the Wireless Siren

Would also like to be able to hear the base station announcements better. Even set to the loudest settings you cannot hear the base station announcements. This has been an ongoing problem for many people for many years. It seems like SimpliSafe could easily do an update to allow the voice to come out of their optional extra sirens or offer additional remote speakers that would fix this problem. Even on the same floor in my home you cannot hear the voice in another room. Please SimpliSafe take this problem seriously and give us this much needed security fix.

Hi all,

An update about this specific request. The Wireless Siren is a very simple component. It's designed to be LOUD, and that's really it. Unfortunately, it's not capable of relaying audio like a wireless speaker - only the siren and chirps that it does now. So using it to relay voice prompts is not possible.

The question also asked if a new additional remote speaker could be offered to solve this serious problem. If you can't hear what entry sensor is opened in another room what good is the system? Seems to me like generic answers are given and never complete.

@rrjak​ sorry about that. I was focusing on the piece about updating the existing component, which as I've said, is not possible.

We'd have to create a totally new version of the Wireless Siren. Currently that is not in the works. But we'll make sure you hear if it does happen.

Hi @rrjak, 

Thank you for this suggestion - it has been submitted to our dev team for their consideration. Once we hear back from our devs, an update will be provided in this thread.

Now this I like as if you can control it through the app if you want this or not and I would have it so if you are outside and door opens you could hear it on the extra siren which I have outside.  No biggie but I like the idea.

some of us need ths. 

And maybe a few dozen more pins while you're at it.

Please, please, please create auxiliary speakers so we can hear voice prompts from the Base Station. Even with the Base Station set to the loudest level you cannot hear them in different rooms or levels in the house. Would think this is a number one priority for safety to the home owners.

Hi @sgw, 

Thank you for this suggestion! The Extra Siren currently does not sound the Base Station's voice prompts, but we will forward this suggestion to our dev team for their consideration.

In the meantime, you can already get notifications of alarms and other events wherever you are, through Push Notifications and Smart Alerts!

We have also submitted the request for more PINs to them. When we have any updates, we'll let everyone know in this thread
