You can reply to this topic with thoughts on which of these are most important to you, We understand that having these requests consolidated in a single #wishlist topic means that you can’t vote on them individually.

Verbal Alexa announcement when a WYZE cam senses motion.


I would like to be able to do the following.

1st - If enabled I want show automatically a triggered camera on echo show when motion is detected.

2nd If my fire tv or firestick is on then show the camera on screen.

3rd echo dot - notify me of the event “like camera 1 alert” and say there is a camera with two way auto - let me respond. Like a camera at front gate. I might be in a location where I only have a echo dot.

Also, if I wanted to check on all camera’s like to see them all at once on my fire tv or fire stick with voice command. I can show them with the Tinycam app already.

Verbal notifications of motion or person would be nice for home security at night because the chances of hearing the notification on my phone while sleeping are slim to none.

Execute single shortcut fpr multiple actions like “night mode” “away mode” as configured on my wyze app. if this too complex, any way to make it single command on alexa to control multiple devices. (use case: before sleeping “alexa secure home”)

I would love to have the option that when wyze cameras detects motion/person and sound, that you can have alexa speak a phrase such as person detected at the (name of camera) etc

It would be great to be able to ask Alexa the status of items, e.g. “Alexa, is the porch light on?”
Right now you get “Porch light does not support that.”
