Really hope they do this. I was expecting it so it’s a disappointing it doesn’t.

If they can do an annoying prolonged beep for disarm/arm then they can do a verbal “Back Door Opened” or what have you

This is the biggest omission ever. I’m returning mine

Add announcements through the sense base station, such as person detection, specific door/window open, etc. Alexa has this capability, but it’d be great to keep it all within the Wyze ecosystem.

Interesting. I was able to create a routine, but nothing happens. Alexa shows the device activity but does not trigger the routine. Thanks

I 100% agree with this idea! The reason I canceled my big name security system was to switch to Wyze. I love the Home Monitoring system so far and would love to see this addition! Keep up the amazing work Wyze!

Since you haven’t started selling additional chimes yet, please make a feature so we can use the new Wyze sense’s Speaker as an additional Chime, should be an easy and fast update PLEASE!

Can we please get sounds from the Home Monitoring Hub when a sensor is triggered?

For example, my previous alarm system would make a beep whenever a door or window opens/closes.

Currently, the Wyze Home Monitoring system only sends notifications to my devices when a sensor is triggered. It would be great if the hub could play a sound - even better if that sound could be customized per sensor (maybe it says the name of the sensor and then opened/closed).

Door chime is a must for me. I was disappointed when I didn’t hear one when I finished installing my system yesterday. I hope this could be updated in the next system release. My current workaround is to reinstall my previous home monitoring sensors as they still chime when the door is opened…they are just not connected to monitoring service.

I just learned that you can set an Alexa routine to chime whenever doors are opened and closed. I literally just set all of my doors to do this! Super easy!!

I setup the routines, but it’s not working. Any tricks you had to do?

Same here…set mine up and nothing happened

Well as weird as it sounds mine worked ONCE and now has also stopped. I’ve done some looking around on here and app and it’s a known issue that is from what I read being looked into.

Would love if the Home Monitoring Hub could be configured to play a chime when a sensor is opened.

I think an alert chime or ding or POW or something would be awesome to have such emitted from the home security hub when someone opens a door. Much like other home security company equipment that alerts/chimes when the contact sensor is opened. Shouldn’t be too difficult to add since the hub already has the ability to emit sounds.

But is it an immediate chime or a delay since it has to go through 3rd party?

Very simple request, that the “Wyze Entry Sensors” make a noise or chime when a door or window is opened so you know.

We have little kids and this is very helpful to keep track of them. Thanks!

Wyze just (this week) fixed something because the Alexa routines are now triggering when the contact is open.
