If many active alarms on your system are causing sound bites to be repeatedly played, you can silence the alarm sounds by muting them from the notification tray.

What you should know

To avoid unintentionally ignoring alarms, you can configure your Security Desk to play a sound bite repeatedly as long as there are active alarms in the system. The sound will stop when all alarms are acknowledged, or when you decide to mute them temporarily.


To mute all sounding alarms:

In the notification tray, right-click the Alarms icon (), and click Mute all alarms.


All sounding alarms are muted. The sounding will restart the moment a new alarm is received, and will continue as long as there are active alarms in the system.
