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.

Hello! First off, I love wyze camera! I have had an original camera which is v2 but then I saw new v3 came out so I ordered v3. Back to point, the problem here with both v2 and v3 is hearing the connect or scanned like when you ready to connect the camera but you have to go thru the process like “i heard ready to connect” then wifi then qr code to scan (i heard qr code scanned)… I can’t hear because I’m deaf and that is huge struggle for me trying to connect the camera. I have to ask someone to hear it for me. So… It is not for me but it is also for everyone who may have difficult or cannot hear so id like wyze team to do “deaf friendly or even disability friendly” on wyze app for to connecting the camera without hear it. It’d be great!

Make the phone vibrate. It might be even possible to use different vibrate patterns to indicate success or failure.

all cellphones comes with vibrations. We Deaf already know how to use it. We have no problem using it for various reasons. texting and emails and many apps etc that is on cellphones are wonderful for us. we all also use facetime or video app for communication is excellent way of communicating with each others. .

Hard of Hearing do the the same.

that includes with smart watches. they do have these.

advanced techology is what we look forward to this.

We do have light flashes for phone calls and doorbells and even baby crys too. there are many more options!

Without techology we would have
been kept on dark!

the wyze app also has the signal for alerts that works with
vibrations already. i have those all time it alerts me alot. it works really well!!

yup thats hardest part!! i figured how to do this. i can hear high pitches… i had to put these up against my ears to hear those sound and it “sends high pitch sound which i can hear” i am profoundly Deaf doesnt mean i am stone Deaf, no i only have 60-70 DB hearing loss… i can hear certain sounds.

I wish Wyze would send signals to the phones so it can vibrates so alot of us in Deaf Community can deserve this very much. its huge frustating to depend on my cats or dogs or my husband to hear the signals. I dont want that. its very annoying.

I wish Wyze would send signals to the phone so we know it is connected and working than being kept in dark totally.

WYZE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!! ADA requires that equipment be ADA friendly adapted. DONT EXPECT these are made specifically for Hearing… YOU FORGOT THERE ARE DEAF WHO USE CAMERAS FOR DOORS AND WINDOWS BECAUSE WE MISS OUT ANYONE WHO COME TO THE DOOR AND USE KNOCK AND DOORBELL WE MISS THEM BECAUSE THEY THINK WE NO ANSWER AND THEY WALK AWAY!

Everybody knows that.

I didn’t know that Wyze has implemented vibration, I haven’t seen any reference to it.

My phone has vibration active. I have set up many a Wyze cam and at no time did I ever feel any vibration from my phone.
