I’ve been trying to figure out how to get my Home-Monitor (built in stock) within SmartThings to sound an alarm !!!ON OUR PHONES!!! when the security system is triggered. It only makes a sends a text message and visible notification when the system is triggered.
For instance, when we’re away and somebody breaks into the house all we get is an easily missed text message and the app has a indication in my notifications bar and that’s all. I’m like 90% sure that when we first set up the system our phones would go nuts with a very audible distinct alarm sound and that was perfect.
I want the phone to light up like a Christmas tree and make as much noise as possible, what am I doing wrong here? This problem has caused us a lot of grief and I’m really close to just paying for a security monitoring system in which case I will probably ditch SmartThings out of spite.
STATED ANOTHER WAY: I’m having trouble getting our phones to sound an audible/obvious alarm when our Smartthings security system is triggered. What can I do to get the phone to light up and go crazy if there’s an intrusion/break in? I need it to sound a siren on the phone such that it can’t be discarded as just a regular notification/text
