Rather than having to use the default "Alert" tone, I would like to choose a custom tone that is ONLY for the Dropcam alerts!
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.
I just logged into this forum to create a feature request for this. Glad to see I'm not the only one who is actively interested in it.
This could be an easy feature to implement, but SO USEFUL. I keep getting many push notifications on my iDevices, and being able to immediately sense a possible thief would be REALLY IMPORTANT.
Like happened this august... I was SAVED by my dropcam, seeing the thieves in real time at 1:20am at 600km distance... Luckily I was still not sleeping and could notice the push notifications on my two iPhones/iPads... but during the day it would have been somewhat impossible.
I would like to change the alert sound on my iphone, because the i can not hear the standard. i think it's a simple way to sell many dropcam to me and my neighbors. thanks
