Activate sound notification if screen is turned off


Hi again,

I have now installed Alfred on two phones and it’s working fine. The notifications for motion detection are also working. However, I only get a sound notification if the screen is turned on. If the screen is off, the phone stays silent (only the LED flashes, which I might miss). Do you know which settings I need to activate to make sure motion detection make my phone bleep even if the screen is off? It’s a Samsung S7, Android 6.0.1, all notifications for the app are permitted.

Thanks in advance!


Hey @bogenreiten,

Thanks for reaching out!

Alfred’s Motion Detection doesn’t depend on whether your screen is on or off. All you have to do is make sure your notifications are enabled and that you allow Alfred’s notifications to beep on your Viewer device (the one you carry around).
