Rather than having to use the default "Alert" tone, I would like to choose a custom tone that is ONLY for the Dropcam alerts!

Same. We sometimes ignore our standard text, email or badge alerts.

What's the best way for a deep sleeper to get woken up if the baby is crying?? Do we need to keep the App open all night at full volume?? A custom tone would be great. Would the app still need to be open to use a custom tone??

I liken this to the ESPN Score Center app.... For those that haven't used the app, the alert for it is the clearly identifiable ESPN tone that plays at a good volume.  Not only is the volume high enough to be heard in a pocket or purse, but with the uniqueness of the ESPN I know the subject of the alery without even looking that the phone. I'd love to see drop cam use a similar approach, it would sure prevent missing an important security alert.
