Amazon Alexa Integration with WYZE sense?

WYZE cameras can be added as devices to Amazon Alexa. Can WYZE Sense devices also be seen by Alexa – I can’t seem to get my Alexa app to find them.

Side note: what is the replacement battery for the WYZE Sense devices?

Thanks.

I can use ifttt to turn on and off the camera talking to Alexa. I am also awaiting for wyze that can communicate with Alexa when it detects motion.

Using SmartThings virtual button and ifttt I am able to get wyze sense sensors to trigger with Alexa.
Configure a virtual button on SmartThings, Use IFTTT to set the virtual button state on a Wyze Sense trigger, the virtual button will trip an Alexa routine to do as you wish; announce etc.

I couldn’t figure out it. Can u give me little bit hint?

Used the code linked off this article to define the virtual switch/button.


Once you define this type of virtual button, you can then declare as many instances as are necessary for all the associated sensors.
I use IFTTT to monitor the state of the wyze sensors, setting the virtual button using a smartthings hook. When the button is triggered, this launches an echo routine which has my custom announcements. The key to making this work is that Alexa recognizes the virtual button as a triggering sensor. Of course direct Alexa support would eliminate the inherent IFTTT delay, so this is merely a stop gap measure.
