We had the home system installed yesterday.  I created rules to arm the system at 11pm so I wouldn't forget when going to bed to manually arm it.

 

Went to bed at 10pm, and was woken up at 11pm when the touchpad (in my room) began beeping for 2 minutes counting down to the alarm arming.

 

I fully understand how to change the chime sounds, how to change the touchpad volume, etc.  But I can't seem to find out how to silence or lower the beep sound when the alarm is being armed.  The only sound I'd like to hear is when the doors open or close.

 

If this can't be silenced, then it's no use to have a rule that's going to wake me up every night.

Hi mishmatta!

 

If you're hearing the beep continuously for 2 minutes, it sounds like you're arming the system on Armed Away. Armed Stay is a 2 minute countdown, but it should only beep once at the initiation of the countdown, and a longer beep at the end of the countdown when the system arms.

 

Let me know if that helps.

Is there a way to turn off or lower the volume of the alarm arming beep, or arm away countdown beeping?! It's driving me insane

Did anyone ever answer this question? My husband wakes up at 2-3 am, and when he arms the alarm every morning it wakes me up. Makes for a looooong day!
