Alarm sound doesnt play while using map link



After setting up item "status icon with audible alarm" the alarm doesnt go off, when using map link on computer without console or opened network monitor.

I have map opened with generated link on our company computer connected to TV for better overview. Sound is provided by HDMI cable to the TV, but even if Alarm is 1, the sound doesnt go off.

Is there a way to play the alarm sound if using this map alone?

Thank you

Hi there,

I just tested the Status and Audible alert (If Alarms > 0) map object and it plays the sound file. I tested it with a Chrome Browser Version 56.0.2924.87.

Which browser are you using?

Best regards, Felix
