How do I turn the Arlo Pro base station siren on or off?

Warning: The loudest siren setting, which is the default loudness option for the siren, is more than 100 decibels. Do not test the siren while people or pets are close to the base station. Prolonged exposure to the siren might cause hearing damage.
