When you are logged in to Metasys UI with the audible alarm feature enabled, the Alarm Notification Bar provides an alarm sounds icon that you can click to toggle between unsilenced and silenced alarms as shown in Table 1. When alarm sounds are playing, you can temporarily silence the sounds by clicking the unsilenced icon. This changes the icon to silenced and stops any current alarm sounds.

When alarm sounds are silenced, the sounds resume if any new alarm is detected or if you click the silenced icon again to toggle it back to unsilenced.
Note: If the alarm sounds icon does not appear in the Alarm Notification Bar, you do not have the audible alarm feature enabled. Refer to How do I enable or disable the audible alarm feature? for more information.
