Base Station

Does Base Station have a builtin siren or must I buy an optional siren? Also will placing stuffed animals around Base Station obstruct signals from other simplisafe devices? Thankis

@onlyuii, yes the base has a

@onlyuii, yes the base has a built in siren. I recommend you only buy the SS3 system. The speaker is in the top of the unit, so your stuffed animal idea, while a good one by the way, should not cover the top or it will be muffled. The aux siren is much louder but is optional. As long as their is no metal in the stuffed animal, if should not affect the base signal in a major way. Try it. You may also want to consider a plastic picture frame with a photo, which is what I did. Hides it quite nicely.
