Main alarm is far too quiet... ???
I just rec'd my SimpliSafe which I am hoping to replace my current (non-professionally-monitored) system with.
But there's one concern... the alarm (I didn't buy the extra siren) is *FAR* too quiet... not even sure I'd hear it upstairs while sleeping if there was a break-in... and I don't live in a huge home, 1500sq ft.
My current alarm is so loud that we're running around in a panic to disable it whenever it goes off.
This one is so mild we can literally sit and have a conversation only 10-15 ft. from it.
I have logged into the system and configured the alarm volume to be 'high'.
But it's just too weak.
What gives... defect or weak design???
Is the extra siren going to be *SUBSTANTIALLY* and *INCREDIBLY* more loud??? Or is it going to cost me $60 and still be lacking???
All in all, the system is great -- but this speaker is lame. May as well not even have it.
