so, most of us here want to be able to get individual notifications from different cameras. for instance if you have someone at the front door, you want to know its the camera you have on your front door, and not the one inside your garage sending the notification. I have come up with a workaround that will work until Wyze rolls something more solid out.
DISCLAMER, I use android and the Wyze beta app, I don’t know if the app you need is available on IOS but if it is, it should functions similarly.
so the app you will need is called Lightflow.
step1. go into the app and hit the hamburger button at the top left.
go into notification settings.
hit the plus button + at the bottom right and it will open this screen. click on “for an installed application” option
I use the Wyze Beta app but the regular Wyze app should be listed too.
select that app.
it should show up like the option within the yellow box I have marked with some generic name.
heads up if you get a bunch of boxes, hit the back button, followed by the hamburger menu, to the notification settings…at that point, it should only have the single box setup. that is one notification option, and it is that you will set for the individual camera. more cameras, different notifications, you will need to add more boxes using the previous steps. i saw this after i set a couple up and then deleted them…not sure why it happend but figure I would throw in a warning…anywho…
click on the three dots on the far right side of that box in the previous picture with the yellow square and choose settings…you will get this
in the capture above, in the red squares, you can change the name of that individual notification, I have them named for the camera they are attached too.
in the yellow boxes are the important part…this is the “contains trigger” by turning that option on, you then enter the trigger…you have to use the wording of the stock notification of the Wyze app. for this one, I have it set only for person detection…so it reads, “person detected on ( camera name) front door” keep in mind this is the important part, you can change it for motion or person, if you are unsure of what to put for a trigger, trigger your camera with either motion, or person, and use the wording in the Wyze notification.
next… for the individual notification sounds (picture above) . along the top you will see a series of settings…slide it to the right until you get to sounds. enable sounds…then where it says notification sound, click it and find the notification you want to use from your device. these notification are only what you have on your device. I was able to find some “person detected at the front door” Etc. notifications using the zedge app and download them to my phone. if you use a voice recording app you can use your own voice too and make your own ominous warnings and alerts
this next part is optional, but I used it. some times you will notice a notification, even at its max volume is still too quiet…this app and can help.
click the volume control method…this will appear.
select it as I have done. and then go into the relativity standard and turn that all the way up ( or as much as you might need)
now to test all your wonderful hard work.
hit the test button here
when you hit the test button you will see this screen. turn your screen off and give it a second to count down. if you here the notification you set, you should be good, thats showing you what will play and the volume it will be at.
final step…close out of all your apps and go trigger your camera…it should be set up and ready to go with a custom notification for that camera… now…be happy for a few minutes then get to work on the rest of your cameras
