The security system can only have its volume decreased three times. After that, it will not get any softer.

Warning

If you hit a wrong button, don’t panic. Simply start over by pressing the “Function” button.

When your Honeywell home security alarm accidentally goes off, your first order of business is to shut it off. However, this resets the volume at the maximum level. Any announcements will be loud enough to disturb children or pets. Changing the volume is a matter of a few simple keystrokes.
