I have this same issue, I had to reregister a v3 cam, It had a routine under CPL, I reset cam, Added back to CPL license, Remade the yard cam routine and it Refuses to activate person detection with routine trigger even with person detection turned on.
Not related to the PD but more of an observation of issues I am seeing with Alexa. You used to be able to tether an echo dot to a Firestick and use voice commands to open the Wyze Cams via the Dot or control the Firestick via the dot without the remote.
I tried to do this with a new dot and Firestick and I keep getting “this device does not support that”
It works on the other devices I setup in the past, just not the new one. I even let it percolate.
Amazon def has some things going on, and of course the AI department has taken a hit with the layoffs.
more wyze changes than alexa I believe, Before V3 pro and plan changes, never an issue, they are tightening freedom and hate I wasted money on these devices. I’ve got RTSP backed up, Got two new V3 in the box, don’t even want the aggravation of the wyze/alexa issues now.
Thanks for posting it but I don’t expect much to come from it.
It’s not accurate for me, my newest activated camera and two cameras shared with me, all V3’s, have no issue with Person Detection triggers in Alexa.
My old V2 and Pan V1 cameras have PD triggers disabled but the triggers I set up two years ago work, sometimes.
TLDR; I still have three V2 cams that show “Person detection is currently unavailable. Please check your Wyze app to learn more.”.
I’ve never had an issue with PD in Alexa with V3 cameras. I have three. Person announcement has always shown as available.
I re-discovered Wyze to Alexa. In my case I had no choice. When I tried to view a Wyze cam Alexa went to discovering Wyze.
I had previously set up routines for a couple of V2 cams to announce “Someone is at the” [Back …
Thanks. I put a reminder bookmark to check up on this. I want to give Jason a little bit of time to look into it & report back to the appropriate team that there appear to be lingering related issues (he does read and relay the responses to the Fix it Friday reports).
Also, if anyone else can confirm V2 Alexa PD issues with CPLite, please say so. It is helpful to be able to show them when something isn’t an isolated incident.
I’m glad things are improved, but let’s get the related stuff cleared up too.
Technically none of this actually affects me since I have Cam Plus Unlimited, but I’m happy to help out anyone who is experiencing obvious bugs that need to be resolved.
