Add More Actions for Wyze Rules

Here’s voting for “Pan Cam: move to a specific camera memorized position or waypoint”

Please move the preset waypoint buttons closer to the top of the interface, and without the 10 second cycling. It seems this feature was requested well over a year ago. Hope folks at Wyze can make it a reality. Thanks.

I would like to request an enhancement on how shortcuts work. I use the Rules feature to create a group of actions to happen. However, I would like to be able to “arm” and “disarm” these rules. Right now Shortcuts do not support enabling/disabling Rules, only specific settings on devices. So the process to enable/disable rules is very tedious.

To clarify, I would want one of the options for Shortcuts to be “Enable Event” or “Disable Event” with the option to choose which events are affected.

Thank you for reviewing, Wyze. I have only been a user of your products for a short time, but you definitely get a thumbs up on value to quality scale!


In rules I need the ability to unlock a lock when something happens. I have two wyze locks. I want the second one to also unlock when I unlock the first lock. Right now I have to unlock the lock to enter into the garage. Then I have to unlock another lock to enter into the house. If I could set a rule that when one unlocks the other unlocks that would be very useful for me!

How about a Sunrise and a Sunset option instead of fixed time. This way one can set the lights to go on/off based upon this and not necessarily having to adjust the times in the app periodically. The actual times could be determined based upon your timezone information.


I do that through IFTTT integration :upside_down_face:

That one is covered under this separate #wishlist topic:

I was working with John in support, and given the scenario I had he recommended putting it on the wish list. But then after joining and entering the request I stumbled upon it and added my vote.

Same with the other one I submitted on a stand-alone bridge so as to support sensors where a camera is inappropriate. Even if turned off, just having one in a restroom can be a legal problem…

Allow a shortcut to enable or disable triggers that are created by the user.
Eg. I have 3 shortcuts created. Similar to home security. Home (disarm), Home Armed, and Away armed. I would like my front door light to be trigger by motion Or a sensor while on “away” or “home armed” mode. But while home, have those features turned off. So by clicking on Home shortcut, those triggers would be disabled.

Please add a rule that when Cam, Pan Cam and motion sensor senses a motion take a 1 or 2 or 3 pictures of the motion detected since this option can be very helpful for legal proof in courts for blaming a thief.

Rules in order that a wish is:

  1. When Cam senses a motion do take 1 picture.
    2.When Cam senses a motion do take 2 pictures
  2. When cam senses a motion do take 3 pictures

Why 3 pictures? Because maybe the first or the second one did not catch what the third picture catched!

Please add this! I’m pretty sure that this will come very handy to the Wyze Community.

Not really sure if this is already an option or not.

I would like to be able to turn on/off Motion Tracking on a schedule. The camera moving in the day time is very noticeable in my kitchen so I keep it off but I would like to have it turn on at night and track any movement on a wider angle and then reset to the default position and turn itself off in the morning. I see there are scheduled actions but that says it is for motion detection. Is that tagging or tracking, which are two different things? The terminology is confusing. If there isn’t a way to schedule it, I would like to suggest it.


Currently, I can make my camera trigger my Wyze bulb to turn on. Can we add the ability to turn on, and then turn off after X minutes if triggered by the cam?

The only way I’ve been able to do this now is to have 2 separate rules - 1 for turning the bulb on, and another 1 to turn the bulb off after it’s been on for X minutes. However, this means if I manually turned on the bulb, it would also be turned off after X minutes, which is not what I want.

I use Wyze motion sensors along with another 3rd party 3-way switches and programmed them in Alexa that when either sensor (one at top of stairs and one at the bottom) detects motion the stair tread lights are turned-on. Then there’s a timer rule (1 minute) followed by a command to turn-off the lights again. Pretty easy to do when you link Wyze to Alexa.

@fred2028 Your wishlist submission was merged here into the “master” rules action request list. Note that one of the requests is for a “Pause” action. This, when implemented, and combined with a bulb on and bulb off action would satisfy your request.

Where do you put the motion sensor so that it doesn’t get kicked, tripped over or dog doesn’t bite it or whatever? Because I really like this idea

I have them near the ceiling. I think you want it as high as possible for the most coverage.

I have Wyze sensors/plugs and Kasa/TP-Link switches in the home. You have to add both of these ‘skills’ into Alexa so you can see/control them via Alexa.

For the stairs, there is a Wyze motion sensor at both the bottom and top of the stairs, mounted to the wall/banister pointing across the stairway. The stair tread lights are controlled by Kasa 3-way switches which replaced the previous 3-way switches ($31 for the pair).

In Alexa there are 2 routines created: one for “Stair Traffic Up” the other, “Stair Traffic Down”. Each routine consists of 3 steps: The first is when motion is detected, turn-on the light; the next is basically a ‘wait time’ step set for 1 minute; and the last step turns-off the switch.

I’m sure others could figure-out other ways to integrate different components to accomplish the same.

Problem I have with the request to integrate motion detection in a wall switch is it presumes that the motion it picks-up is intended to turn-on the switch, which, depending upon location of the switch, could actually be cross traffic, like someone simply walking down a hall or to a different area and all of a sudden the light for a different area turns-on, which is why I really like Wyze’s motion sensors and being able to better control the direction of the motion detection. Just wish sensitivity could be tuned based upon location/intention.

Yeah I could do that I have a Lutron three-way switches on my stairs. So I could do that. Great idea thanks

A way to Activate/Wake up and display Wyze cam video Live Feed on an IOS or Android Tablet upon motion detection. Then sleep after a set duration. Not just a notification, but a display of the video seen by the camera (or a tile display of selected cameras) We had this basic functionality with an old Unided Guardian system of cameras and a receiver/monitor that died. We had its 7" monitor/receiver beside our TV so while hanging out watching TV if motion was detected, like a bear walking by, the receiver/monitor came on upon motion detection then turned off after a minute. So it was not a glaring always-on display.

We had hoped when we purchased that Wyze had this functionality and we planned to use an old iOS or android tablet to dedicate as a monitor. So now, if enough of you like this idea, with the help of this wish list item, we hope to have this functionality with Wyze one day soon.

Would be nice if I could schedule turning on/off Motion Tracking and Pan Scan on a Wyze Pan Cam.

Nice to have feature to keep the camera quiet in certain rooms at certain hours/days.

Also nice to control the feature during certain hours of the day when activity may or may not benefit from the features.

Thanks, my $.02
