You are saying a notification sound for the Wyze App different from all other App Notification sounds. That is already a function that Android provides. What is needed is a separate notification sound setup within the Wyze App so that different events can produce different notification sounds. I have a number of Wyze products. Doorbells, Cameras, Smart Lock, and outlets. The problem is that I have several Wyze doorbell/cameras. There are multiple events that a single doorbell can produce. With a subscription, The events could be Person detected, animal detected, package detected, motion detected, doorbell button pushed. Each device and each event on that device should be set to a unique notification sound from my ringtone folder, or set to No Notification Sound. This is ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED because I have a front door doorbell/camera and a back door doorbell/camera on my beach house in South Carolina AND I will have a Wyze doorbell/camera on the front door and the back door of my residence in North Carolina. That is 4 doorbells. Just like every dedicated doorbell system for the last 70 years that you can install in a house (no camera) has at chime for the front door bell button being pushed (Ding- Dong) and a different chime for the back door bell button being pushed (Ding). That way you know which door to go to. As it is now, Wyze produces the same notification sound for any notification from any Wyze device. I don’t know if it is a doorbell button push, a person detected by the doorbell camera, or a person detected on a V2 Wyze camera under the beach house. Futhermore, the doorbell camera only detects motion in the firmware of the camera. It then sends the picture of the detection to your servers for server side software to analyze for a person, animal, package detection. If it detects a person, it sends this detection back to the doorbell. At my beach house, when I walk out the door, the camera detects a person, BUT it is 30 seconds after I was in front of the camera. I have gotten in my car add leaving before I ever get the notification sound. Now if someone pushes the doorbell button at the beach, I can get a faster notification, but when I’m in my home in NC it gets to me too last for me to connect into the doorbell at the beach and talk to the person at that pushed the doorbell. They have already given up and left the porch. The is now when I only have 1 doorbell installed. Once I have 4 doorbells installed (2 in SC and 2 in NC), I should be notified with a unique doorbell ringtone depending on which doorbell was pushed. The Android phone APP has the capability for the user to assign unique ringtones to every individual in their contact list. So android APP programming obviously has the functionality for the Wyze App to be able to reference different sound for each event that happens on each device in my Wyze Device network, Otherwise, notifications are useless and that makes having more than ONE Wyze device an unusable system.
I am getting ready to rip out all the WYZE devices I have and change over to Ring or Nest or someone else that understands how a system of devices needs to work to be useful for the customer.
Also, OTA software updates are horrible. None of my cameras at the beach house now work because something didn’t go right with an update. The solution from Wyze is to power cycle the device like the network interface unit for the V2 Cameras, power cycle the V2 camera via the switch on the camera. I can’t do that because I am in NC and my arms are not long enough to reach over 300 miles to flip a switch on a camera. My Wyze security system cameras for my beach house are dead because of a fault in a firmware update. That is unacceptable.
I was originally very excited about the Wyze products until I have seen that to put them together as a system is not doable. There is a big difference between developing and test a product on the workbench and having those devices out in the real world with issues that the developers are not faced with.
I am now very disappointed with WYZE even if I could buy the devices for one dollar each. I’m willing to pay more for devices that are bulletproof and I can count on for the security of my very expensive beach house.
Wyze should stick to making toys or other things that are not security related. Nobody at WYZE is wise enough to understand real-world issues and understand why certain functionality is a must with security systems.
