Individual Camera Alert Notification Sound

Our garage door suddenly opened in the middle of the night. We have push notifications enabled but that alerts for each camera. It would be helpful to have a separate alarm-type sound available for individual cameras. An alarm that you can enable or disable for each camera.

Cars drive by all the time so push notifications go off constantly. But if it was a different alarm sound for our garage camera then we could have gotten up and investgated the situation.

Thank you!

This is related to the #roadmap topic below, but even more specific (asking for different sounds for each camera, not just for the Wyze app in general):

@MayciMama,

You may want to consider turning off notifications for those cameras in high traffic areas in the middle of the night. You can use the the Shortcuts feature to set this up either as a button at the top of the app or on a schedule.

I’d suggest getting a contact sensor for the garage door and have that integrated into an alert system whereby sensor AND camera detection would notify you but not just camera.
Maybe a Zigbee or Zwave hub like a Hubitat Elevation would be able to provide you with a more configurable and reliable alert system. Hubitat hub

I’m sad this hasn’t gotten much attention or traction. I was talking with another officer the other night at work about someone trying to break into my house this last fall. while I and my son were home no less. ( all went ok)

I had a thought that if you could set individual tones for each camera it could save to wasted time not checking notification you know might be a pet, or a family member or something like that, in my case I would have it say the name of the camera ( which is the room or area its observing) then without having to open your phone and check the individual notifications you would know right where there has been movement. something that could be quite handy in some sad circumstances such as mine.

if I was sitting watching tv and all of a sudden I heard, “alert, garage” I would know more of what to expect.

Right!!??!!??!!

I’m disappointed in the responses as this is a valid issue for using these cameras for security purposes in and around the house. Specific and identifiable alarm sounds to be set per camera would be one more “+” for these fabulous cameras!!

You Wyze Guys are so much fun to watch. We anticipate great things. HOWEVER, why is it hard to associate different notification sounds for each camera? I’m not a programmer so I’m showing ignorance. BUT, it seems like a crucial addition to me. I’m a caregiver. When a specific sound goes off, I know my charge has moved around. But is he in his room, down the hall at the top of the stairs, or about to exit the entry hall? You see the point. I have three of your beautiful products but all three must use the same sound. Any help here, other than “That’s a great suggestion.”

I have 2 cameras, 2 door sensors and a motion detector and as of now you can only have 1 notification sound which is very confusing and annoying. I would love to see you have the option to be able to use different notification sounds for different devices.

for people using android a workaround was found.

check this out. I did a nice little write up on it

Would like to set each camera to have different notification

Are you using Android?

Yes I’m using android. I have 2 pan cams 2 door/window sensors and a motion detector. I would love to have all 5 of these devices to have different notification sounds.

I posted the work around right above your first post :slight_smile:

click on that link and all you seek shall be found lol.

always make sure to use the search bar at the top right as well. more than likely you will find multiple answers/ solutions to most questions.

if you have any issues with the workaround, get at me.
