ST,Lannouncer, Big Talk and VLC thing --need setup help with SHM

Please excuse my long thread…newbie just getting started.
So my house is light config is setup with Hue and Caseta which are controlled by Homekit/Siri and Amazon/Alexa. Works perfect.

Smarthing Hub I have doors and motion sensors config and working. This past week after lots of reading I installed Lannouncer on an Samsung S6 connected to a bluetooth speaker. I installed Bigtalker smartapp also. Works good.
Installed VLC thing also on a computer and connected another bluetooth speaker, this also works great.
I am using VLC/Bigtalk to announce open and closed door events.That all I need it for.
In SHM I have 2 problems.

  1. I am using Lannouncer as a Siren when my house is armed but the volume is very low. I set Lannouncer volume to loud but still. I even coonect my Lannouncer device wired to speaker and still low volume. Connected it to my bluetooth stereo receiver and still low volume… How can I increase the siren to be loud enough?
  2. Why am I only seeing lannouncer in my SHM config as only a siren? In the lannouncer thing I can test all the different effects( strobe, siren, speak, tone etc) and it works. I would like to atleast use tone and speak in SHM also.
    Thank you.
