second alarm sound

Any plans to add a second device that sounds the alarm? and when doors open/close?  With a 2 story house and a basement, we often don't hear the door open noise. I know a second screen doesn't make sense because the screen is the alarm system brain, but an audible clue that doors are open would be nice elsewhere in the house.

Re: second alarm sound

Hello cableuser1984. At the moment we do not offer a secondary device that is able to announce when the doors or windows open/close. We do offer an accessory remote siren that can repeat the alarm triggered sound. 


Here's an idea on how you can be notified when a door or window is opened/closed:


Set an automated rule: You can create a rule that sends you an SMS text or an email whenever certain doors/windows are opened/closed. Doing this would alert a mobile device of yours, which in turn can create an audible sound, thus alerting you of the action. 


If you want to try this and need help creating the rule, please see:
