This functionality does exist. There are currently some issues going on with the interoperability of the Alexa App and the Wyze skill, so I am not sure if it affects this function. It may only be affecting routines. However, Wyze and Amazon are working on fixing it.
When it does work, you can enable the function by:
Enabling the Wyze Skill in the Alexa App
Adding the Doorbell Cam from Wyze as a device in Alexa
Opening the Doorbell Cam device in Alexa
Enabling the “Doorbell Press Notifications” toggle.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
EDIT… In that page you can also set the Alexa devices that will announce the press and the sound you hear as well as person notifications if you want them.
I did the same thing as R.Good with my Video Doorbell. As he showed, you just do a custom command with Alexa and it acts as if you told Alexa that command verbally.
For a while I even set mine up so that it would automatically stream the video doorbell as soon as it detected a person, even if they didn’t press the doobell button (I had cam plus on it, but a person could even just have it automatically load the video even with just motion).
Well, for whatever reason my Wyze Doorbell (non-pro) is showing that I have the latest firmware version 4.25.1.042 but I know that the latest version is 4.25.1.060. How can I get this Updated? Any suggestions? I have tried to reboot the doorbell also no go.
I have no answers for you. There aren’t any indications that the .060 was halted. I’m not going to update for the reasons stated by @DHCR and @adel_bouchiba although .042 was reported to have introduced the 3\3 problem and .060 was supposed to have fixed it.
I am on .042 but have never been affected by the 3\3 problem.
It is my suspicion that .042 and .060 are incompatible with the newer app versions and cause the 3\3 issue, which is why I haven’t experienced it. I am on an older App version Android 184.108.40.206
For those affected with 3\3, it might be worth a try to roll the app back to see if it helps since there is no way to revert the FW.
Thank You all for responding, I like Wyze products but it seams that they are stretching tin with all those new product launches and forgetting to fix other older products by providing quality firmware fixes.
Note on the 060 FW, someone here posted that if you set the doorbell to use nightvision all the time that the 3/3 issue wouldn’t happen.
I can confirm that also works for me. So, the doorbell is at least usable, but only if it’s set to black and white.
