How does the Smoke Alarm and CO alarm setting work?

Wyze Cam Pan's Sound Detection algorithm is programmed to detect the pattern of standard smoke and carbon monoxide alarm signals.

For smoke alarms, Wyze Cam Pan listens for the Temporal-Three (T3) alarm signal, which produces 3 long beeps followed by a pause.

For carbon monoxide alarms, Wyze Cam Pan listens for the T4 alarm signal, which produces 4 long beeps followed by a pause.

Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms manufactured starting in 1996 have followed this standard set by the American National Standards Institute and National Fire Protection Association. The majority of alarms installed prior to 1996 produced a steady continuous sound.

The Smart Sound Recognition setting on Wyze Cam Pan is used to generate notifications and event videos. Learn more about Event recording and Smart Sound Recognition here.
