FYI: to get the individual Wyze AI Event Notifications, all I had to do was go into the AI detection settings (on a V2, V3, Pan V1, or Pan V2 cam) and change ANYTHING at all (I tested multiple combinations). Remove a single detection or add a single detection…ANY change at all, or multiple changes (though not necessary) and it will then update to allow the individual notification options in that cam. No other steps necessary.
- Assuming you already have Cam Plus on the cam, Go to Settings for that cam
- Select Event recording
- Select Smart Detection
- Make ANY change at all on any one of the toggles, even toggling it off then back on…any toggle change at all or multiple changes if you wish
- Now go back twice to the Settings main screen
- select Notifications
- Select which detections you want notifications for
Now we can detect everything we want without being forced to have notifications for all of those things. We just have to make any detection change at all for it to show up first.
On a separate note, it will allow you to select to get notifications for something even if you don’t have it set to “DETECT” that category of event. Some people should test what happens if you select to get person notifications but don’t have person selected in the detection settings (or pet or vehicle or whatever else…it just seems like “person” will be the easiest one to intentionally test).
Secondly, there are no longer options to detect or be notified about Crying, Meowing, or Barking detection through the AI. I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere yet, but these options have now disappeared completely from the app.
CORRECTION: V2’s still have Meowing, Barking, and Crying DETECTION Options, but NOT NOTIFICATION options…so it seems like it will no longer alert me if my baby is crying on my V2 Baby monitor. This should be updated, because the previous app would alert me when my baby was crying, but it seems that it will no longer offer this as AI notification (though I can tell it to alert me to sounds in general, it won’t only send me crying sound alerts now). (At least I THINK it used to send me crying alerts before…maybe it was just sound alerts? But it should probably be something added as an option to V2’s regardless since people like to use these as baby cams and want to be notified when the baby is crying, and not just sounds like a loud car driving past)
I was thinking the “Pet events” notification toggle might be used to also include Meowing or barking detection notifications, but even if that were so, that still leaves out “Crying” notifications.
Video Doorbell Pro does not offer Individual Notifications separate from detections yet. You can detect all motion and all AI events or just certain AI events but no other motion and notifications stay with only allowing you to get notifications for ALL AI events or none of them. Definitely needs an update here.
WCO also does not offer individual Notification options yet. It is also ALL or NOTHING still.
Tested my office cam with all notifications set to OFF except for the Face events, and it appears to be sending me notifications about ALL movement, and saying “Complete Motion detected on Office Cam” all the time, despite everything turned off except for face events. We might need to test for similar false notification errors.
