About Audible Alerts
The Silent Time
feature may be used to schedule when specific alert priorities should be sent silently for the respective state (i.e. just silence the medium & low priority alerts).
- If your device settings supports "Ringer and Alerts" under the devices general settings "sounds", then the app uses this volume for alerts (iPhone); otherwise it uses the main volume for alerts (iPad).
- If your volume is turned down to low then you may not be able to hear the audio alerts.
- The app plays three distinct alert sounds depending on the type of alert(s) (Warnings: Loud, Watches: Medium, and Advisories: Low).
- Always adjust your volume before pressing the [Test Notifications] button (in Land Brief, [Setup], [Alerts]).
- If your ringer is "muted" (iPhone) then the device will vibrate (when set to in general settings) as long as the alert is not sent within the silent alerts schedule.
- You can globally enable/disable the alert audio in your device Settings (the icon contains silver gears with a black background). Press [Notifications], [Wx Alert USA].
