Add More Actions for Wyze Rules

Got it. :+1:

I use rules to set the monitoring and notification settings on my Wyze Cams for when I am home vs away and it works great.
I’ve noticed that while I can toggle “Record Motion Events”, I cannot toggle “Record Sound Events”.
It would be very useful to have this ability to set in rules as I do not want to record motion or sound when im home, rather only when im away. Without being able to create such a rule, I need to toggle sound detection on and off manually for each of 7 cameras… quite tedious.
Please help Wyze! :slight_smile:

[Mod Edit] Merged with an existing wishlist topic. Give it a vote to help it along!

Requested Rule Actions:
Turn on/off sound detection

I was hoping that these new color BR30 bulbs would have the same capabilities as the original color bulb. Just a heads up for everyone. As of this posting the following actions are missing:

Turn on for
Turn Sun Match On
Turn Sun Match Off

I use the “Turn on for” function to turn off the original color bulbs after X amount of time. I hit my shortcut button (while the original color bulbs are already on) within the app before going to bed. The original color bulbs then turn off X minutes later. Hopefully the missing actions are added soon to the BR30 color bulb.

I think it is complete hog wash that my post above was merged into this “wish list” thread. The fact is the new color bulbs DO NOT function the same as the original color bulbs. Is that not worthy of a thread of its own? It is as if the forum moderator is trying to burry the fact that the new R30 bulbs do not work the same as the original color bulbs. As far as I’m concerned @Omgitstony is overstepping.

agreed. anything that is not related gets merged into one extreme long one nonsense thread instead of its own thread apart from anything else, every different title gets merged into wishlist totally. mod need to do a better job! i believe this same mod does every post into one wishlist of all of them. instead of being in correct place, they all get thrown into one wishlist instead of in own group of proper placement.

To add a bit more, i would like the ability to select a scene for a rule.
I already saved several scenes with colors match and i like (having the same scene for a different bulb, is another #wishlist), but being able to select one of the scenes to turn on by a rule would be very simple if implemented.

this was probably a good idea when Wyze first started it. A 100 wishes combined kind of loses momentum and ability to track progress.

I can see grouping the requests by product category such as webcams and then lights, and then sensors … maybe…

I do realize that this has been discussed too many times before but hey it is a wish !!

I would like to be able to watch or track the items related to my wishlist, but it seems as it is, I think I have to now see all items related to any changes in the Wyze rules wish list which sends a lot of emails :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail: :e-mail:weekly…

Allow you to press the same button on the switch to turn off and on the plug

I thin adding the ability to turn on/off a wyze plug with the same button press rather than a double press for “on” and a triple press for “off” would make the switch perfect.

Toggle on/off state (all Wyze IOT devices)

A strip light pro is equivalent to several color light bulbs.

It would be helpful if multi-bulb scenes would work on light strip pro.

And we are still waiting for rules for scenes. wild bulb and color bulb have been out for how long. and we still cant schedule a scene? kind of pointless to have them if they cannot be scheduled based on a time or other option. any eta on this? i’d love to be able to schedule christmas colors then late evening go to warm white. when will this be avail???

I really hope to see this following rule added soon.

I want to have a schedule to enable continuous recording sdcard during daytime and save some write cycles on the cards for night time when there is no motions.

  • Change SD card record mode: Off, Event Only, Continuous

I may be misunderstanding the gist of your post, because I use what I believe are “first gen” Bulb Color. But aren’t the three actions you listed actually functions of the Wyze App, and not the bulbs themselves? With my bulbs, those actions are a functionality of the app. Do these “BR30 bulbs” use a totally different app, or version of the app? If so, sorry if I misunderstood.

Hello and thank you for your reply. Bottom line, the WYZE app functionality is not the same for the different color bulbs. I remember an email or some sort of marketing material stating something to the effect of: if you like the functionality of the original color bulb, WYZE is now offering a color bulb in BR30.

Well wouldn’t you know it, the marketing doesn’t match reality yet again. WYZE isn’t the only company guilty of this, but I’m not looking for excuses or justifications. Anyone and any company can justify anything in their own mind. That will not and does not change the reality of the situation. In any case, the app is the same for all WYZE products. However the functionality available within the app MAY vary for each and every product. SURPRISE!

Are scenes used in rules for any Wyze device?

Trying to find a workaround for my Wyze strip pro which has 16 separate light segments that I would like to access from rules / scheduling / triggers / shortcuts

getting at scenes ???
And possibly effects???

@WyzeJasonJ

I see your point and that would be a very unpleasant surprise, indeed… :disappointed:

Time lapse as rule option

Allow for scheduled time lapse or based on weather event, like snow.

Allow for modifying rate of time lapse.

Rule Action Duration in Seconds

Using a Wyze Cam with person detection and a Wyze Outdoor Plug or a Wyze Plug one can create a Doorbell for the Deaf: connect a strobe light to the plug and trigger it when a Wyze Cam monitoring the Front Porch detects a person. I would like to be able to have the Plug turn off after 15 seconds instead of the current minimum of 1 minute.

I agree. In a lot of the rules it would be nice to “toggle” the current state.

Create Wyze Sense Hub Sound Actions (doorbell chime, buzzer, etc) for Device Trigger Rules

Example:
Rule
Device Trigger
Name: Doorbell
When: Front Porch Detects a person
Action: Wyze Sense Hub play Doorbell Chime
