Configuring Audio Alarm Settings

The Audio Alarm action plays an audio file of your choice whenever an alert is triggered.  You can use this alarm to scare away potential intruders from the location you are monitoring.

For example, if you want to secure your room while you are not present, position your camera towards the door and configure it to turn on the audio alarm on motion detection.  Now, whenever someone tries to enter your room, the alert will be triggered and WebCam Monitor will play the alarm.

To configure Audio Alarm settings, click Add Webcam >> Actions >> Configure button of audio alarm action
