Alarm Siren Timeout?

I have a hardwired alarm system in the house. I did not renew my monitoring service, however, the system still functions as it did, just without monitoring. My question is, if I set the alarm to away and it is tripped (siren blaring), will the siren time out/turn itself off after a while? If yes, is this a programmable feature where the unit can be programmed to timeout after a set amount of time? I have a Concord 4 system.

From the programming manual........
Siren timeout (0313 to 0363) [4 minutes]

The factory default is 4 minutes.
You will need the 4 digit installer code to make programming changes.
Has your alarm company disabled the monitoring section ?
If not it will be in trouble when the central station no longer is connected.

PJ, what do you mean by disabled the monitoring section? The only change I've noticed is I am no longer able to use their app to manage and monitor the system. Other than that, the door beeps still work and I am able to set the "away" and "stay" modes where the siren is triggered if tripped. The contract ended April 30th.

Ahhhhh....ok. You had a wireless/IP type communicator that can be shut off remotely.

Yes, its a wireless system. I take this to mean the system will continue to function as it is now?
