Add Special Features For Deaf / Hearing Impaired

  1. Siren Sound works great but need wide variety of high or low pitch

“ wide variety options need added in order to hear for Hard of Hearing and the Tone Deaf.”

The bonus feature would be linked to cameras when they set off siren is to set off flasher/strobe , which is very helpful for the Deaf!! Of course siren is to stay !! it is perfect for Hard of Hearing! Only thing it needs is louder, higher/ loud, lower pitch volume to assist Hard of Hearing and some tone Deaf.

  1. Doorbell: Needs transmitter bridge for Light flasher/strobe linked to Camera DoorBell type in order to be connected together.

We need the DoorBell feature!! Yes!! We need it!!! I hope it can come with “wireless” hardwired flasher/strobe ( yes light source must have power to light up ) This will help alert us to specific source ,

  1. All types of Cameras works so well for everything! We use Wyze APP to watch motions of all kinds and it really caught our attention very much! Any Pros and Cons? please comment with reply! This sure do meet our ADA access rights!

PRO: Price is very affordable and easily bought to meet within our income budget and is budget friendly too!! We thank Wyze for this pricings!!

Packages are being protected big time for us!! soon as we get alert when package is being delivered we watch all cameras closely until they are being dropped at the door. We catch all kind of visitors including animals passing by! Vehicles drive-by is also excellent due to prevent break ins! Break ins is preventable very much and is helping us so much.

CON: Doorbell chimer … no light strobe/flasher linked yet, Hope there will be one in near future!! No Access to doorbell except camera feature. We catch visitors trying to use sound doorbell, We quickly answer when everything else fails. Camera helps alot.
Speak button on everything is not working for Deaf Community. Over 50% cannot speak very well … NO we are NOT mute. In past and present everything is very very pricey for Deaf Community, Yes we do have all kind of devices such as Phone flasher, Doorbell flasher, baby cry flasher etc and they do cost at least minimum of $300 and up for a complete package.

I do not know if there are any other Deaf out there who are using Wyze products? I let everyone know we have 5 cameras running and we caught so many stuff and we love those cameras!

I hate to state it this bluntly, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for features that will help the deaf and hearing impaired. I speak from experience. I was one of the very first Wyze customers (3 x v1 cams in 4th quarter 2018). Shortly thereafter I raised the issue of app-wide landscape support for tablets, an iPad in my case. It became a Wishlist item, voted upon by hundreds of customers, yet there it remains collecting dust to this day. Meanwhile, I struggle physically to hold and rotate my iPad each time I use the app. Clearly there’s been little regard for my disability here. I don’t mean to sound like a whiner, but WOULD like to see Wyze become more attentive to the needs of the physically disabled, esp. when the request for change (landscape) is something most other apps have anyway. OP … best of luck to you.

I have a red strobe programmed any time my alarm senses motion or the mailman has came. I have to by Wyze Electrical Outlets and program the triggers… but it works well.

Massive fan of all things Wyze: I just purchased the color bulbs and they are kick butt; far better than my GENIE smart bulbs throughout my home. However, my mother is very hard of hearing and lives at my home. I’d like to see a connection between the lights and a cell phone RING, i.e. her phone rings and the bulb (or other device) hears the ring and causes her smart color bulbs to flash in her room.
