Setting System for Siren Alarm Sounds

As a homeowner, you want to make sure that your home is safe. The best way to do this is by investing in security equipment. One of the most critical pieces of equipment to invest in is a siren alarm system. A siren alarm system will let you know when someone enters your property illegally or if there is an intruder at all. These alarms are very simple devices that will alert you when something goes wrong with them using different methods depending on how they were made; however, there is one thing that all of these alarms have in common: they make noise!

Set the siren sound for your home security system

You can set the siren alarm sound for your home security system from the control panel or through the mobile app. If you have an eXplorist X5 control panel, follow these steps:

  • Press [Main Menu] until [Settings] appears on-screen, then press [Enter]. 
  • Scroll down until “Siren Sound” appears in the list of options on your left and press [Enter]. You will see three choices: Off (which means no sound), Selectable Tone 1 or Selectable Tone 2 the default setting is Selectable Tone 1 which plays an alternating pattern of high and low tones every 30 seconds or so for about 5 minutes before stopping completely; this would be appropriate if someone tries to break into your house but doesn’t get far enough inside to set off any other alerts like glass breaking sensors being activated by broken windows or doors being forced open by criminals trying to get into your home while making noise because they don’t know how else they’ll be able to do so quietly enough not wake up everyone sleeping upstairs where all those cameras are located so there’s no need for extra noise alerts such as what happens when someone opens a window while trying escape detection systems set up around townhouses/townhomes like yours which could have been installed years ago before most people even knew anything about technology let alone personal safety measures available today such as motion detection devices designed specifically.

for use indoors/outdoors depending on whether one needs more protection against intruders coming through windows rather than doors since most burglars tend to go after easy targets first before moving onto harder ones later once nothing else seems worth stealing anymore.

Determine what you want your siren to sound like

Once you’ve decided on the siren sound, it’s time to set up your system. Once you’ve determined what type of alarm system you want and installed it in your home or business, the next step is deciding how loud and long the alarm should go off. The volume can be adjusted based on where it will be used and when someone might hear it (for example: if there are lots of windows in an office building).

The length of time that an alarm sounds depends on how long a person needs to react before taking action for example, if someone hears their smoke detector go off while sleeping at night, they may have time to put out any flames before firefighters arrive at their door, but if someone hears their smoke detector go off during breakfast with friends across town later that day, he or she will probably need more time than just five minutes before calling 911 (or maybe even 5 hours).

Next, go to the Z-Wave setup page on the app

Now that you have your siren set up, it’s time to choose a sound for it. On the Z-Wave setup page in the app, tap Siren Sound and select which sound you want for your siren. This could be anything from a police car siren to an air raid signal it all depends on what kind of mood you’re in! Once you’ve chosen a sound, save it by tapping Save at the top right corner of your screen.

Tap Siren Sound

You can also change the siren alarm sound from the control panel.

  • Press and hold Siren Sound for 2 seconds. The current siren sound will be played for 5 seconds and then you will hear a beep to confirm that you have successfully changed your alarm’s default siren sound.
  • If you want to cancel without making any changes, press Skip instead of pressing OK or Done after hearing the confirmation tone (beep).

Select the sound and then tap Save

Once you’ve chosen your siren sound, tap the Save button at the bottom of your screen. This will bring up a confirmation window that asks if you want to save your new alarm sound. Tap Confirm and then repeat this process for each additional siren sound that you want on your system.

Control panel or the mobile app

You can change the siren sound from either the control panel or the mobile app. If you’re using a mobile device, you’ll need to access it through the web browser on your phone or tablet.

Then click on “Sounds” at the top of any page to get started with changing settings for each alarm sound that comes with our system!
