Is there anyway that we can set a different tone to alert us for each category, for example, package tone, vehicle tone, person tone etc.
No, not yet. I think it is on the “wish list” . Search there:
Welcome to the Wishlist! This is where you can request features and products. Please explain how you envision using that feature and we will do our best to evaluate all submissions. Before posting, do a quick search in both
Roadmap and in Wishlist to see if your request is already being discussed. The “Top Votes” show the most requested and our Roadmap has the list of projects we’re working on and completed requests. Before posting, please read: Here is how the Wishlist works.
Welcome to the Wyze User Community Forum @tommynlindaruane! Glad to have you aboard!
@Antonius mentioned, this request is currently not available and is on the # in several forms. I have listed links at the bottom of this post that may fit what you are looking for. Additionally, there is one wishlist # request that is currently in development for a different Wyze notification sound. roadmap
But… Since you use Android, there are third party apps that can fully customize notification sounds for every type of AI being recorded and every device you have. I use MacroDroid. I posted about it here:
There was recently some discussion of starting a new topic for Android workarounds in this
#roadmap topic with a similar title:
So, I have created this topic for Android users dedicated to discussion and help to implement workarounds on Android phones since the Wyze app can’t do this yet.
Here is what I have done:
I have been experimenting with a couple 3rd party apps as a workaround. I am using both these apps currently in testing on my Android Moto G with great results.
I originally use…
Customizable notification messages so sensors can be used for more non traditional uses and still give good context. I would like to change the notification in this example
Wyze sensor doorbell hack - YouTube
Our garage door suddenly opened in the middle of the night. We have push notifications enabled but that alerts for each camera. It would be helpful to have a separate alarm-type sound available for individual cameras. An alarm that you can enable or disable for each camera.
Cars drive by all the time so push notifications go off constantly. But if it was a different alarm sound for our garage camera then we could have gotten up and investgated the situation.
Right now the Wyze notification tones blend in with other phone notification tones (such as from games or messaging services). Some people would like for the notifications to stand out more and this is especially true for people using these for security or to watch their kids. Changing the notification sound will let people know that it isn’t a regular notification and that they should check the Wyze app.
