I have a Doorbell camera and a separate camera in a different location.  I want each device to provide a different notification

I love this idea.  I do not think there is currently a way to do this.  But I would also add that in addition to a sound for each cam that it also has the ability to say the camera name.

Given you can have up to 10 cameras in a home, how useless is an audible alert when you don't know which camera triggered it.  Seems like a pretty simple process to allow users to assign different sounds to different cameras.  At minimum Google should have alert zones so you can have critical zones and more passive zones.
