The Ooma Siren works with Ooma Home Security to sound an alarm when an Ooma Home Security sensor is triggered. Designed to be installed in the entryway to your home, the Siren can be armed as you leave and disarmed when you return. It can be mounted anywhere that you have an available wall plug, and is an excellent deterrent against intruders.

The first time you set up the Ooma Siren, you will need to pair it with your Ooma Telo Base Station. You can pair the sensor by following these instructions:
- Plug the sensor into a power outlet that is within 200 feet of the Telo Base Station.
- Open the Ooma Home Security app and press the “Add a new sensor” button.
- Select Ooma Siren as the type of sensor you would like to pair. If your account is not already subscribed to the Secure Plan, you will be prompted to upgrade.
- Press and hold the pairing button on the Siren for five seconds. The Siren’s status light will blink red.
- The Telo Base Station and the Siren will sync with one another.
Can I install the Siren outdoors?
The Siren is not weatherproof, so it should be installed indoors in a dry location.
What do the lights on the Siren mean?
The Siren uses an LED light to indicate its status:
- When the red light flashes continuously, the Siren is in pairing mode. You should follow the instructions in the Ooma Home Security app.
- When the red light flashes twice, pauses, and repeats the sequence, the Siren is updating its firmware. You should wait for the update to complete.
What do the sounds my Siren is making mean?
The Ooma Siren uses audible cues to communicate its status:
- One beep every two seconds indicates one of the following statuses:
- The device is in its arming grace period. You should make sure your doors and windows are secure and exit your home.
- The device is in its alert grace period. You should use the app to prevent a false alarm or to take an action like calling 911.
- One beep every second indicates one of the following statuses:
- The device’s arming grace period is about to end. You should make sure your doors and windows are secure and exit your home.
- The device’s alert grace period is about to end. You should use the app to prevent a false alarm or to take an action like calling 911.
- A loud, continuous alarm indicates that the alert has been triggered. You should use the app to stop the false alarm or to take action like calling 911.
How can I sound the Siren’s alarm?
You can sound the Siren’s alarm by visiting the Action Center in the Ooma Home Security app and pressing the Sound Siren button.
How can I silence the Siren’s alarm?
There are two ways to silence the Ooma Siren’s alarm once it has been triggered:
- Open the Ooma Home Security app and disable the alarm by pressing the Silence Siren button.
- Use the Ooma skill on your Amazon Alexa by saying, “Alexa, ask Ooma to turn off the Siren.” If you use this option, the default PIN is 0000. You can use the app to update your PIN at any time.
What options can I enable for the Siren?
You can use the Ooma Home Security mobile app to determine when the Siren is enabled as an alert option and when it is not. You can learn more about the mobile app by visiting our FAQ.
My Ooma Siren is disconnected. What should I do?
If your Siren is not connected, try the following troubleshooting steps:
- Check if the placement of your sensor is good. Your sensor must be within 200 feet of your Telo Base Station to maintain a good connection. Avoid installing your sensor near metal objects, which can obstruct the signal between the sensor and your Telo Base Station.
- If the above steps did not resolve the problem, try re-pairing your sensor by pressing “+ Add Sensor” on the Ooma Home Security mobile app dashboard and choosing the type of sensor you want to re-pair. Follow the on-screen instructions.
- If the above steps did not solve your issue, contact our Customer Care team.
