System Configuration options

Considering SimpliSafe but would like to see configuration options for devices specifically door/window sensors.  Is there option for these to chime upon entry/exit.  I've downloaded the manual but it does not include this information nor have I been able to find on the website.  Also is there a search option on the forum?

The base station makes a chime when an entry sensor is triggered. You can turn than on/off globally but not per sensor.

If you hide the base or perhaps put it on the 2nd floor as some do, it can be difficult to hear the chime if there is other ambient noise.

You can use siren to chime too. Siren tends to be near front door, so can extend downstairs hearing range!

I'd like to be able to set this per sensor as well.  I really only want it for two doors, but it's on for all 15 of my entry sensors.
