Individual Camera, Sense, Doorbell, etc. Alert Notification Sound and/or Color

hey @jhereg and @nelix1970

with both of you using android you actually can set up a work around for custom notifications.
it will work until Wyze puts something out in the app itself.

sadly this is only available to android currently.

better than nothing for now.

I looked at that. IMO it was too much of a PITA when dealing with multiple sensors. I’m testing the Alexa options to see if that’s any better. it’s pretty straightforward, but I have no clue if it’s going to be reliable. I’m more concerned w/ sensor notifications. I’ve got pets and camera motion detection is unreliable unless it’s using person detection. The motion sensors and door sensors are what seem to work for me. I use the cameras to check on alert instead of alerting me.

I’ve bought into the Wyze stuff pretty heavily. I’ve got a couple dozen of their bulbs, door sensors, motion sensors and about a dozen cameras. I like their stuff, but it seems they head off to something new w/o doing something basic like adding features to their app which would work with everything. If you get into the security arena w/ door and motion sensors you need to give people ways to know when they’ve been activated. Notification needs to be flexible.

The Alexa integration is worthless. I set it up to notify me on my phone if my front or back door opens or closes. It doesn’t work all the time and I know one time it took over 5 min to get the notification, and when I finally got it I got door closed before door open.

Please make it possible to separate the notifications. This would be incredibly helpful especially for the doorbell.

Can we please get the ability to change the wyze app sound notifications in order to distinguish the difference between an email or text and a break in!

Not just on iphones/pads but across all devices. I switched away from ring because their cameras barely detected a shape when my car got broke into. Wyze cameras are far superior in that field but the app is 20 years outdated. We’ve been customizing notification tones since the flip phone was the primary phone on the market. They are over 20 years behind and need to be setting the standard with their app the same way their cameras do!

This is almost a reason to return these. I have 4 v. 3’s & I need to be able to set it to not be effected by ‘Do Not Disturb’. Android makes that part simple. However, I also need it to have a unique ringtone which will wake me! The best I can do is assign ALL the tone I want and to reassign Signal a tone (which it is amazing how THEY thought of this) for messaging. However, if we want to get into what this app ‘should’ allow is an individual ringtone for each and every device giving an alert. To me this is a ‘no brainer’. I want an alarm at night and be able to defend the driveway and know to go right towards the driveway, not the back yard. This is my single complaint about these cameras. I was going to expand to Monitoring, now I may return all and switch to a different brand.

Welcome to the community @Meltedwire . I like you am a community member and have opted to be a beta tester for both App updates and Firmware.

I do agree that there should be settable tones for instances defined in this thread. However, until that happens you can try something like this, if you are home and wanted an alarm.

You can setup a rule which will trigger the alarms on many camer’s when either motion or a person is detected, if you have Cam Plus. This could essentially trigger all camera’s to sound the siren. I am not sure where your camera’s are, but an option.

Another option would be to purchase a Wyze Plug and plug something like this into it. THe item below is a power failure alarm, so you would turn the Power on the Plug on so the alarm will not go off. Then when motion or a person is detected, you turn the power off, which should trigger the alarm. Then you have a shortcut in the Wyze app to silence the alarm, which simply turns the plug back on. Just trying to provide alternatives. I would try the Camera Sirens if you can first.

I think it would be really cool to set up notifications for individual cameras I haven’t been able to figure out a way to do that so like if my parking lot camera goes off I have a different notification from my doorbell because I have three wyze cameras and the wyze video doorbell. And it would be nice to know which camera is actually going off instead of the same notification for all four cameras.

Would love to have the option to have a different sound notification (alert) based on the various locations of the cameras. As an example, home verses garage. Shop verse home, etc. It would allow me to know even before I opened up the app which location was having the alarm.

Can you please make the option for the phone to ring like a doorbell when someone pushes the doorbell button. The generic camera chime that you have right now is not good at all. I cannot distinguish it from the other wyze cameras that I Have. It really puts you behind the ring doorbell for not having this feature.
