Note: Turning off notifications doesn’t affect Event Recording. Any Events you've chosen to be recorded will still be recorded, but you won't receive a notification if you've turned them off. 


Device Notifications

For Wyze Cam and Wyze Sense devices, you can select specific Events to receive notifications for, like when your Wyze Cam Floodlight v2 detects a moving vehicle.

To change your Device Notifications:

  • In the Wyze app, tap on your Wyze device.
  • Tap on the Settings gear, then Notifications.
  • Tap the toggle to enable Notifications, then tap the boxes next to which Events you'd like to be notified about. 
⚡️ Snooze Notifications override all Device Notifications settings. If you have leak notifications enabled for Wyze Leak Sensor, but global notifications are disabled, you will not receive a notification from the leak sensor.

Not every Wyze Device has the same Notifications options. Wyze Cams notify you about Events like motion and sound detection, and a lot more with a subscription Cam Plus. Wyze sensors, like Wyze Climate Sensor, will notify you about temperature and humidity changes. See below:

    • In the Wyze app, make sure Global Notifications are turned on.
    • On your Wyze device, go to Settings > Notifications and make sure it's toggled on.
  • The Snooze Notifications bell controls all device notifications. If it's toggled off, you will not receive any device notifications from the Wyze app until the duration you've set has passed. Events will still be recorded and saved.
