Can you ring the doorbell chime and record a small video when the V1 motion sensor is activated?

It is real easy to create a short video when a v1 motion sensor is activated (or v1 door/window sensor).
I tried to create a rule to set off the doorbell chime (I have both the original and pro) when motion is detected in my mailbox with a V1 motion detector. I could see several options on the doorbell like record short video, restart doorbell, send notification, but no ring chime?

The chime is inaccessible via rule automations. The only way to ring the chime is to press the button.


Thanks SlabSlayer, it would be a cool thing to be able to do though. I guess I could set off the alarm on the V3 Pro camera when the mail box is open :slight_smile:

Indeed it would. Even cooler if we can use it in rules to activate a specific ring from those available on the chime. You can vote for it since it is already on the #wishlist: Allow Wyze Chime to be accessible/triggered for alerts from ANY Wyze device.

But, I think there may be a bit of a limitation to being able to do this. The VDBv1 chime is installed as an accessory to the doorbell, not as a Wyze Device. I don’t have the VDBPro, and I believe its chime acts as a hub for the doorbell, but it may also be just an accessory to the doorbell :man_shrugging:. Accessories don’t play well with other devices.


Thanks SlabSlayer!!
I voted on adding that feature, but there are only 12 votes so far unfortunately!
I like the original poster’s idea of adding the chimes into a group too. I would love for the chimes to be shared amongst the doorbells so you could hear them better throughout the house. I know you can assign multiple chimes to a doorbell, but I would like to assign doorbells to multiple chimes so they could all ring (with the correct chime I assigned that location).

There was discussion on this very topic and some chatter last year that Wyze was working on R\D for a Universal Chime, but I haven’t seen any recent posts:
