@luke.yeh okay have updated my Alfred to 1622 had to force the update on my viewer device as auto update didn’t go to the latest version ?? Anyway the siren feature works… but who choose the sound ? Sounds like you couldn’t decide which siren effect to use so used all three of them. If you cannot give us the choice of our own sound/clip/MP4)midi then please just choose one. Thanks for the hard work of your team Luke.

@luke.yeh Hi Luke, not sure we need to hear the siren at the viewer end, just a soft beep to confirm that the siren is operating, Unless I’m hearing the feedback from the camera device.
Edit… It’s feed back from the camera device. Just hit the mute speaker button for peace and serenity at the viewer end whilst all hell breaks loose at the camera end. Sweet.

Hi @pinky-free-user,

Thanks for reaching out!

Appreciate the feedback! The sound was picked through an internal vote. We do consider to offer the option to play pre-recorded audio files from users in the future. Please stay tuned!

Upgrade version or free?
I’m on 1622 on camera/viewer. Nothing.

The Update comes when it comes I see. I’ve never had autoupdate working however.

I thought the siren should have Bluetooth ability to be produced via HiFi system or the home theatre system if this occurred the siren would then be amplified 5 times then that of the basically ringtone volume set for the phone siren… Also too if the siren isn’t a particular volume & decibel its simply just a dead giveaway that there is a surveillance in operation! to me that’s a big huge no fair even in sun tzu’s book the art of war he outlined the key to winning in battle relies on those who produce surprise tactics! thus given the nature of surprise, or element of surprise… If a criminal is surprised by a sheer magnitude of sound it will 99% of the time interfere, disrupt, put a criminal into panic or haste, with confusion! whilst not giving up the either well thought of phone position of monitoring, critical events! hence preserving, surveillance operations or evidence that maybe used by police… Or investigations


Can’t use it becuase the rest of old alfr has to work first


I would the possibility to auto energize the Siren when a motion is detected.

It’s Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! The siren idea was and AWESOME addition to Alfred.


I agree. I intend to make my next build using speakers connected to the phone.
This way I can tell the firework throwing don’t go to school (ever) kids they are caught for the PO-lice


For the first time burglary suspect, with the volume on max or phone will send them running. Now, attached to Bluetooth speaker(s) at a high or a higher level will send even the Professional theft heading for the hills
