Camera Motion Detection Alerts on the Base Station

I would very much like to get an audible notification from the base station that a camera has detected motion. I've added a couple of cameras to our security system, and I'm frankly a little disappointed. I can only get notified of motion alerts at night if (a) my phone is in my bedroom--which it isn't--and (b) if I disable silencing notifications. For a lot of good reasons, I don't like to keep my phone in my bedroom at night. My requests:

  1. Allow camera alert notifications on the base station
  2. Set monitoring hours (I don't want to get notified about every UPS or mail delivery)

Do you pay for monitoring? If so, are you not concerned about missing a phone call from them while you're asleep since your phone isn't near you?

(This has nothing to do with your question, I'm just curious.)

@worthing​ the base station is in the bedroom, so we can hear that if anything is triggered. The phone calls are useful if I'm not home.

Outdoor camera motion detection should trigger a base station chime, preferably with an option to make the sounds different depending on the camera triggered. Entry sensors already have that option.

Outdoor camera motion chimes are a feature I sorely miss from Ring.

This is a necessary feature. It would allow the system to function like a driveway alarm, increasing utility and market share. Please implement!

I would also like an audible notification from my base station when a camera detects motion. This would be helpful for everyone in the house especially if they are not near their cell phone.

Hi @pittsfield​, 

At this time I do not have an update about this feature request. Once I hear from our devs that it has been brought into development, I'll let everyone in this thread know.

If this does come about then I hope there is a way to turn that feature off as my driveway camera gets over 50+ notifications a day and if I had to hear my base station ding all day for that I would toss the base station so far out in the driveway then run over it. 🤣🤣
