|Important: The steps in this article have been updated to reflect app version 7.3.0, please update your app today for the best Canary experience.
If you have Professional Monitoring linked to a Canary device on your account, you can now activate Audio Alerts. This means when a person is detected, and the event is escalated, your device can emit a noise to deter the person. The alert can mean sounding the siren or emitting an audible "chirp".
Please note: You need to be running the Canary app on version 7.3.0 or above.
How does it work?
You will need to change the Service Settings of your Professional Monitoring. Please follow these steps to create the event:
- Open the Canary app.
- From the Home Screen tap the gear icon in the top right corner.
- Tap on My services.
- Tap on Audio Alerts.
- Tap on the device you wish to add an Audio Alert to.
- Select Siren (including chirp), Chirp, or Mute.
- Tap on Done.
- You can now exit this screen with the back arrow and the settings will save.
