If you’re looking for a way to disable the door chime on your Gemini alarm system, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to do it quickly and easily.


The Gemini home security system includes an option to turn off the door chime whenever someone is entering or exiting your property. This can be particularly useful when you’re away from home, as it ensures that any activity will go unnoticed. By following the steps below, you can easily disable your Gemini alarm system’s door chime and make sure your property remains secure.

What You Need

The process of turning off the door chime on a Gemini alarm system is relatively simple, and requires only a small Phillips screwdriver and the bottom control panel. Before attempting to turn off the door chime on the alarm system, it’s important to make sure you have disabled or bypassed any motion detectors that are near the door or they may interfere with your efforts.

The bottom control panel will be located next to the front door. To begin, you should carefully remove it using your Phillips screwdriver. Once opened, you will see two toggle switches labeled “chime” and “alarm.” Make sure that both switches are set in the “off” position.

Once you have flipped both switches to their respective “off” position, replace the bottom panel and secure firmly back into place with your Phillips screwdriver. This should successfully turn off your Gemini alarm system’s door chime, allowing you to open your front door without an audible sound being generated when motion is detected near the door.

This guide will provide you with a detailed description of the steps you need to follow in order to successfully turn off the door chime on your Gemini alarm system.

Power off the alarm system

In order to turn off the door chime of a Gemini alarm system, the steps that must be completed are as follows. It is important to remember to always make sure that the power of the alarm system is actually turned off before attempting any modifications or repairs.

1. Locate the circuit breaker or fuse on your electrical panel board that is solely dedicated to powering your alarms system.
2. Turn off this circuit breaker or remove this fuse completely from the electrical panel board and power off the alarm system completely.
3. Now that the power has been turned off, you can safely go ahead and make any desired adjustments or repairs to your alarm system, including turning off its door chime feature if desired.
4. Once all adjustments and repairs have been made, turn on the circuit breaker again or place back into it place in the electrical panel board and restore power to your alarm system once more.
5. Test out all of your newly updated settings and confirm they are working properly and ready for use!

Locate the chime setting

It is possible to turn off the door chime on a Gemini alarm system, however, it is important to know the differences between the control panel’s volume and chime settings. Depending on your particular system, various modifications can be made as long as you are familiar with the installation and programming software in which your Gemini alarm comes equipped with. This guide will provide instructions for locating the primary volume setting and turning off the door chime for a Gemini alarm system.

Before proceeding with disabling the door chime on your Gemini alarm, unplug any hardwired connections from your wall mounted control panel or contact any local electricians in case of a professionally installed system. Once this has been done, open up your control panel by unlocking its compartment and locate one of these three buttons: Volume/Chime (German engineering models), System Setting (Siemens/Gemini LCD Flex models) or Menu (Siemens/Gemini LYNX Plus voice models). Press and hold down one of them till a “volume” or “chime” menu option becomes available on its LCD display. This should provide you access to adjusting either sound level or completely switching off the integrated door chime in your Gemini alarm.

Change the setting

To change the door chime setting on your Gemini alarm system, you need to access the control panel. The first step is to enter your code into the system’s keypad. Once this is done, the keypad will light up and you can move onto the next step.

Next, look for a button labeled “Chime Off/On” and press it. This will bring up a menu that contains three options: “Single Chime,” “Double Chime”, or “Chime Disabled.” Select “Chime Disabled” if you want to turn off the door chime completely. If you want to reduce the volume of your door chimes without disabling them entirely, select either “Single Chime” or “Double Chime” instead.

Once you have set your desired setting, press the back button at the bottom of the screen or exit out of that menu by using one of the side navigation buttons on your system keypad. Your Gemini alarm should now be set with no door chime or with a reduced volume door chime based on whichever setting you chose!

Test the chime

Before turning off the chime, it is important to first perform a Battery Check and ensure that it has been set up properly. To do this, access the panel and push each of the buttons marked “/” or “*”. If you hear a distinct chime when you push either of these buttons, then your system is in good working order and ready for programming. If you do not get a chime when these buttons are pressed, then adjustments may need to be made before continuing with the steps below.


So, that’s how you turn off the door chime on your Gemini Alarm System. It’s not a complicated process, but it can make life a lot easier. You can test the door chime to make sure it’s been disabled and then forget about it until you need to adjust your settings again. Keep in mind that this will also disable any associated features like the notification chirp or sound alerts.
