I currently have an Arlo Pro, but I’m not impressed with the siren as it’s not loud enough to be heard outside or by neighbors. What I would like to do, is if I trigger the base station siren, I would like it to also trigger an external siren at the same time. I looked into IFTTT, but don’t think that’s an option because the triggering of the base station alarm is not one of the triggers available within the app.
So then I started looking into SmartThings and I found a thread recently that lead me to believe this event can be used as a routine in ST. I don’t currently have a ST hub, but I have a general understanding of how it works. My thought is to get an external siren and plug it into a Wemo switch, then create a routine that upon triggering the base station alarm, would then turn the Wemo switch on, and have another routine for turning it off. Before purchasing a hub, could someone please confirm whether or not this would work? Or please let me know if there’s a better way to do this?
