Water leak sensors installed - now what?

Ok, so I have setup up 3 water leak sensors.
They are all activated and working. So how does Wyze want us to use them? When the sensor detects a leak, then what? Do I have to be connected to the Wyze app watching for the leak to happen?
What are the various ways that I can be informed? other than flash a light somewhere in the house?
Thanks.

It can send a push notification to your phone, even without the app open (assuming you have default standard settings where apps are allowed to do this and aren’t blocking notifications, etc).

Some people create rules to have it set off a siren on one of their cameras when a leak is detected. You can do lights like you said, you can have it turn on a Wyze plug which causes any number of things to happen (some people have a plug control their sump pump or something), you can get creative.

I do a notification and for some of them a siren on one of the cams.

Some people have an old spare phone laying around and have Tasker watch notifications for one that says there is a leak, and then have Tasker push audio through their Google speakers to have Google announce anything they want like “Leak Detected”…Do you have an idea of what you would like it to do?

Example here on setting up Sirens with the Cameras that have sirens for when a leak is detected.
It works great for me. I also have it so it turns on a spotlight.
