Christi Carew asks...

So what does an alarm do, generically speaking?

Alarms don't always sound, they can light up (otherwise how would a deaf
person know that something changed).

The point is that alarms "alert you" to a condition.

Try "alert" as an alternative to "sound" or "go off".

Like: "You can configure an alarm to alert you when a metric fails."
