Siren use on Squirrels

Can I use the siren feature on Birdfy cam without it having to be activated by motion? That way,if I see a squirrel live in the feeder, I can activate the siren and scare it off.

Yes, you can.

While watching Live in the app, you should see a button labeled Siren or Audible Alarm.
Press it.

I have tried pressing the siren button while watching live and it doesn’t go off like you would think it would. I have gone outside to feeder and pressed siren button without any success. I was led to believe that you need motion activated string on for siren to get the siren to sound.

I’ve always been remote when I’ve pressed it.

Sometimes, I don’t hear it over the App and push the button again.
