How to Set up Pre-alarm sound
When motion is detected, you will hear the pre-alarm sound from the camera, indicating the camera is determining the motion. The pre-alarm may last 3 seconds.
Step 1. Launch Reolink App, then tap on the gear icon to go to the Device Settings page of the camera, and tap on Siren under Notification settings.
Step 2. Enable Siren and Pre-Alarm Sound. Then tap Sound Test to test whether you could hear a sound from the camera.
How to Customize Siren Sound
If you don't like the default siren sound, that's ok. Our cameras are welcome to siren customization. Here is how:
Step 1. Go to Device Settings > Siren, and tap Siren Sound. Then tap Custom sounds.
Step 2. Tap the microphone button. You may start recording your siren sound now.
Tap the microphone button any time to end the recording. The sound couldn't be longer than 5 seconds.
Step 3. Tap Apply if you are satisfied with the recording sound.
Done! Now you could use your personal siren sound.
How to Set up Siren Schedule
For battery-powered cameras with smart detection, you could choose to sound the siren when the camera alarm is triggered by any type(s) of motion events. For example, you could set the siren to sound when there is a car approaching your house.
