Is there a way to trigger alarms silently? In my use case, I believe I’m probably 10x as likely to accidentally trigger an alarm than I am to have a real, necessary alarm trigger. I’m worried my dog will be traumatized by the loud noise, plus I like the idea of not alerting a burglar that the alarm is in fact triggering (if they don’t hear the countdown and notice the panel in time). In my mind, it increases the chances that the police catch them in the act.
This happened accidentally once when the countdown was also silenced which we still haven’t identified how that happened. I don’t want the countdown to be silent though, because it greatly increases the odds that we open a door without realizing the panel is armed and then trigger the alarm. I just want the alarm itself to be silent when Armed Away (either by panel or using the Away scene from ADC app). When Armed Stay, I want the Alarm to not be silent.
