In Settings for each camera, go to Event recording then Smart Detection. That is where you actually select which AI detections you want the AI to look for.
Your V3 will allow you to detect Person, Package, Vehicle, or Pet. Then in the notification settings you select whether you want it to notify of you of ALL of those AI detections or none of them. It won’t let you pick and choose. If you don’t want to be notified of pets, then don’t select for pets to be detected in the smart detection settings.
The V2 has a few more test detection options, including some sound detections showing in the smart detection settings. You can toggle on any you want and have them detected and then under notifications you can still be selective about which of those detections it notifies you about. You can have this cam detect EVERYTHING, but only notify you about some of them.
The V3 doesn’t have selective notifications yet…anything you select to detect it will notify you of. Wyze said the V3 needs a firmware update before it can use selective notifications (just pick some, but not all) instead of all or nothing (any detection you have turned on gets a notifcation, so just don’t turn on any that you don’t want notifications for).
We’ll have V3’s updated to match eventually, but we don’t know how far in the future that may be. For now, there is nothing you can do get the selective notifications to show up on a V3, because it doesn’t exist. Just go modify your Smart detection settings. If you want package detection on your V3, then turn it on to be detected. If you don’t want package detection notifications on your V3, then turn it off in the smart detection settings.
They both have the same detections, just a different method of notification, but you can still get the same notifications on each.
So for my V3, I turn on person and pet detection like so, while turning off Package and Vehicle:
And then I toggle on for notifying me when the camera “Detects Wyze AI Events”:
Now I will only get notifications for Person and Pet and not get notifications for Package or Vehicles. If I change those smart detection settings It will automatically make the notifications match.
For the V2, they aren’t required to match. I could have all 4 toggled on to be detected, but then just select to only be notified of people for example.
Again, the V3 would need a firmware update before it has the selective notification feature…but even without it, we can still get the same notifications.
