With the amount of products being released growing and the requests for more Wyze Rule Actions, we have consolidated them here.
This list is for Wyze Rule Actions (things that can be caused by a Wyze Rule Schedule, Shortcut or Device Trigger). For more Wyze Rule Device Triggers, see this related topic: Add More Device Triggers for Wyze Rules.
Please click VOTE at the top to indicate your desire for more Wyze Rule Actions. You can reply to this topic with thoughts on which of these are most important to you, We understand that having these requests consolidated in a single #wishlist topic means that you can’t vote on them individually. That is why commenting about your favorites, use cases, and personal significance is important. Wyze will consider those comments in prioritizing implementation.
Existing Rule Actions:
Turn on/off device (Privacy Mode for Cam Pan v3)
Upload a short video to the cloud
Restart the camera
Turn on/off motion detection
Turn on/off notifications (per camera/sensor and globally)
Reset position (Pan Cam and Pan Cam v2 only)
Set brightness/color temperature (Bulbs & Light Strips)

The Shortcuts feature allows setting variable schedules for a variety of actions. However, turning sound detection on and off are not currently available as possible actions. If these are added to actions, then it will be possible to schedule this using shortcuts.

Need to be able to turn On/Off/Auto the night vision mode.
The night vision threshold is too finicky for when my outdoor sensor light goes on and the cam keeps flipping back and forth between day and night mode, like a blinking kid staring at the sun. Also the pan cam tracks the mode changes as motion and keeps spazzing out moving back and forth randomly, generating random alerts.
… A night vision sensitivity slider might also help with this
Another action that would be great, setting different motion detection areas.
I have a busy street during the day and don’t need to get alerts for every car that drives by. But at night there can be suspicious activity of people loitering, where id like to expand the detection area. It would be great if i can shift the detection areas on a schedule for night and day
I worry about the longevity of the pan motor due to constant panning when I am away. Being able to turn pan on upon motion or sound detection (or both) would save wear and tear on the motor. Actually, this would apply not only to shortcuts, but use in general. I thought of it when setting up an “Away” shortcut (I will use it as a security device - Camera will off when home).
This, for me, is the number one improvement I’d like to see right now. It would cut down dramatically the amount of time and hassle I spend activating and deactivating certain features on my cams every time I leave or return home. Mostly it’s being able to turn on\off the pan scan, motion tracking and sound detection features. Being able to set them to activate on my automated schedule while I’m at work at night would help me keep an eye on my elderly mother. I have to disable the sound alerts until after she’s in bed or else I get tons of false alerts. I’m often either too busy at work or just forget to manually go into app to reactivate sound alerts so I can be alerted to smoke\CO alarms going off. I know that there are separate alarm settings for smoke\CO alarms, but I have tested this multiple times by manually activating my smoke alarms and I get no notifications from my V2 cam.
Update all thumbnails. I know there is a roadmap for that, but it seems that might be more of an action.
Just visualizing a path Wyze could follow IF they had loadable profiles of settings, anything that simply changes the state of the setting would be updated via loading the users preferred profiles and anything requiring an action would be, well an action. Three of the existing actions (Turn on/off camera, Turn on/off camera and Turn on/off notifications (per camera and globally)), are changing settings. Two (Upload a short video to the cloud and Restart the camera) are what I would consider actions.
The addition “actions” in this roadmap can easily be recognized as profile settings vs. actions.
Turn on/off sound detection (**profile**)
Change motion/sound detection sensitivity 0-100 (**profile**)
Delete all alert clips for camera (**action**)
Turn Pan Scan on/off (**profile**)
Turn Motion Tracking on/off (**profile**)
Night vision on/off/auto (**profile**)
Detection zone on/off (**profile**)
Save a still image (**action**)
Sync camera time (any or all) (**action**)
It would be great if an active short-cut would be highlighted in the app. Currently, touching a short-cut to activate it causes it to blink a few times, but then it looks just like any other short-cut.
Why hasn’t Sound Detection On/Off added to scheduled events? Like what you can do with motion?
I would like the sound to detect when I’m gone and not when I’m at home. I have to physically go into turn off sound detection but I can schedule motion? Weird.
