Call or SMS when a person detected

Has anyone tried or know of a way to make your phone ring when a person is detected? The notifications from the app are way too frequent and false 90% of the time. So, I’m trying to make my phone ring when a person is detected say after 8PM.

You cannot do this with Wyze native Rules, but I believe you can with Alexa and routines.

You will need to link you cell phone carrier to the Alexa App then when a person is detected you can have Alexa call your number.

There is currently no SMS notification or Phone Call\VOIP capability for Smart AI Event Notifications in the Wyze App.

There is currently a Wishlist item requesting this:

The Alexa option mentioned above is one alternative. Another is a third party app called MacroDroid. It can be programmed to send an SMS to your phone when a Push Notification is received from Wyze indicating a Smart AI Person Detection on a specified cam.

I believe Tasker is also an app that can do this although I do not use it.

Well… I was totally preparing to show you how to do this with Alexa but I am failing you and me at this moment, I’m going to keep looking into this and get back to you.

Not sure about SMS but I know that when I looked into Alexa e-mail integration I was sorely disappointed. Very limited support.

Yea… My above note is misleading, I honestly thought this could be done with the Communication Integration and that too is limited to AT&T, Verizon, and Skype.

So far I am unable to find a solution for this. I was able to send myself an Alexa Message. But no SMS or call, Aside from setting 2 Alexa devices next to each other having their own conversation One Saying Send Message to (Your Contact) then the other speaking the message to the first device.

I will keep playing though.

As others noted, you can very likely get this done all on a single phone via Tasker or its open source analog, Easer. I’ve had good luck with Easer but haven’t used it for this.

I couldn’t get the carrier service to load either. Mainly because my carrier isn’t listed.

I was able to get Alexa to call my phone by asking her “Where is my phone”.
