Help Nighttime: Do Not Disturb, Except for One App

I have a schedule that enables Do Not Disturb during sleeping times. It works fine.

There's a section in the Do Not Disturb screen called Exceptions, but it only applies to Calls, Messages, and Conversations. There is no section for Apps.

My Use Case:

I have a WiFi Security Camera with motion detection, and I would like to receive notifications during my sleeping hours from the Camera's app (Zumimall).

Is there an easy way add the Zumimall app as an exception so that it's notifications make sounds during my scheduled Do Not Disturb time, but calls, emails, and texts do not?


I have a Samsung Galaxy S10 on Verizon running Android 11 and One UI 3.1.
