Speaker does not re-mute after alarm event.

To reproduce:

Set speaker to off.
Cause Alarm to go off.
Wait for alarm to stop.
Note the speaker is now ON.

Also happens in my GMC-300+ v4.52 although I guess is something intended (for alarm purposes idk)

I also have this with both GMC 320+ V5 and GMC 500+ devices. Both devices have the latest firmware. I think it's not a bug, it's a feature. Because if the device sounds an alarm and you are not at home, you can hear later on the speaker that an alarm has previously occurred.

This is unintended and seems to be a bug it looks like it does turn on the speaker. Will implement a fix on the next update.

If it's a bug and it's fixed, how do we get to the corrected version?

That's nice, but I think the bug will affect several models because both of my devices are new and have this bug. That's why I thought before, it was deliberately programmed that way.

Would you guys rather keep this as a feature instead?

Hahaha, then you have no work with it.
No, I think it's better if the bug is fixed and the speaker is muted again after an alarm.
That would be normal. Strange is just that nobody else noticed.

It is pretty weird. We found a fix on 500/+ but not yet on 300/320+. But maybe this one will be kept anyway. It's kinda helpful and easier to figure out that the alarm went off as you said.

Attention, if you want to fix the bug with the GMC500 with a new firmware, then please make sure that even when changing the alarm volume, the speaker will be also activated, although this is off !!!

The fix we found so far produces another problem when adjusting the alarm...It doesn't turn on the ticks but sometimes it won't beep when adjusting the alarm.

I vote for fixing it. However, it could become a feature if it was optioned as such. Ie. A toggle such as: 'Speaker returns to last state after alarm? yes/no'

I mount mine in the attic where it receives fresh outdoor air. I can hear the alarm within the house still. However it is massively inconvenient to me to have to climb into the attic and re-mute the speaker any time there is a spike.
