@ManAbove - You can have Alexa just say your message from any individual device with the Alexa Says option-but to have multiple devices speak you do have to use the Messaging/announce feature.
You can write a wyze rule to check for sensor delay but I don’t see a way to get that to Alexa. Good info here from @rbruceporter;

Nice to be able to have sensor motion turn on a light in the dark. No more stumbling around for visitors looking for the light switch.

I set up routine to announce on all devices if front door is open, but no announcement. I must be missing something. I am going to retire a little early tonight and tinker with it again tomorrow was stoked to get it operational but early wake up.

Disable then re-enable the Wyze skill in Alexa. This forces a refresh of the skill.

Love it. I just convert everything I had on IFTTT (except Hue) over to Alexa. Nearly instant responses. Only had one “miss” so far. A miss is when a contact sensor closes but the indicator LED is still lit. I think that is caused by someone opening and closing the door very fast. Not sure.

Ok I will tinker with them again over the weekend.

The closest thing to what you need would be to program Alexa to play a playlist of songs or sounds on a nearby Echo Dot when the door is open and stop when the door closes. Hopefully someone will hear that the door is not closed and fix the problem.

I set a routine for , front door opens, ,suppress for 30 minutes, say" shut the damn door" play on Living room dot

Just tried setting up a routine and it says my sensor device is not supported.

You’ll need to disable the skill and re-enable it. See directions here.

Very nice, I did not know you could do this with the contact sensors in Alexa. I set up a routine in Alexa to announce that someone has opened my garage door and also a routine to announce that someone is at the front door when they ring the doorbell.

Any update on this. I too would love this feature as that is the main reason I bought it

Wyze sense is fully supported by Alexa. Is that what you were wondering?

I am wondering if there is away for alexa to announce that the door was not closed after x minutes of being opened

Not via Alexa yet. Alexa can announce or take action on a door open or close event, but currently open duration events are not supported as far as I know.

While Alexa does not currently support that the rules engine in the Wyze app does.

I have been trying and trying to do this, but keep getting the same “Error. This device is not currently supported.” as @korth87 above.

My iOS software, wyze app, alexa app, and camera firmwares are all updated. I’ve tried disabling and reenabling the wyze skill. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the skill. I’ve tried deleting and re-adding the Sense devices in both Alexa and Wyze.

I CAN see the status of the Sense device (open, close, motion) in Alexa. But when I create a Routine, I select “when this happens”, then Smart Home, then the Sense device, and immediately that error pops up.

Any help or suggestions?

What type of device is it you are adding? A contact sensor or a motion sensor?

You said you can see the devices in Alexa’s device list, if you select one there it should show you it’s status?

If all of that is working fine you may need to open a support ticket with Wyze. I just tried your steps with a Wyze Contact sensor and it worked with no error so that’s why I think you need tech support.

Although before that make sure the firmware on your Sense Bridge is also up to date.
