Allow Wyze Chime to be accessible/triggered for alerts from ANY Wyze device

People don’t always walk up to the front door - would be nice if ANY Wyze cam (not just the doorbell) could trigger a (selectable) tone on the chime when motion/sound/smart detection event is detected. Would also be helpful if one could buy additional chimes and treat them as one device group so they could be placed in key areas (e.g. garage, basement, pool deck, etc…).

The chime would be instantaneous if within the same WiFi network and thus much faster than the text message notices which are often delayed 30-60 seconds or more and require that I have my phone in hand at all times to read the text messages. (unrealistic).

I came here to make this same suggestion but thought I’d search before submitting. So I’ll piggy back on this :slight_smile:

In addition from instantaneously informing the whole household (via one or more chime modules) if an (unexpected) person enters the property, I would also love if one of the chime sound options was a dog bark sound. I’d basically set it when I’m away so people within my yard, approaching my garage or home would hear a dog bark.

A snooze feature would also be required so when we’re playing in the yard or doing yardwork, we can snooze it for X number of hours and not have to remember to re-enable it later. Would also help with an on/off schedule for those who might only want this feature at certain times of the day.

Wyze Chime Accessories > Add CamV3 functionality for Siren Tones triggered by Rules

Home Security > Wyze Chime Accessories > Add CamV3 functionality for Siren Tones triggered by Rules.

Sirens sounds are generated by one or more V3 Cameras which are usually placed strategically outdoors to thwart off intruders or uninvited persons. The Wyze Chime (Accessory) is typically located indoors and pairs with the Wyze Doorbell to give occupants notification that someone rang their doorbell.

This wishlist item would be to give the Wyze Chime the ability to pair with CamV3 Rules as well and supply a variety of Siren sounds and independent volume control that would be triggered by the Rules defined for the V3’s.

This would give the indoor occupants notification that a Siren has been triggered since the outdoor CamV3’s sirens would typically not be loud enough indoors to be heard or wake the occupants in the middle of the night.

The separate volume control would allow the Doorbell Chime function to be set at one volume and allow for the Siren to be set at a different volume.

Currently, the only Home Security solution Wyze can offer is to place another CamV3 inside the home for the sole purpose of sounding the Siren tones, and there is no volume control for it.

Does anyone have any idea what the status of adding a siren to the Home Security System is??? I cannot for the life of me understand why Wyze can’t take a commerically available Siren from Amazon and adapt it to their system. Why offer a system without all the accessories required. What influence do a select group of people have on what Wyze works on?? John D.
