Add More Actions for Wyze Rules

The Wyze app already has this feature for vacation mode.
Vacation Mode

While there currently isn’t a shortcut action available, you can place all of your bulbs in a group, and then put the entire group in vacation mode.

Thanks Dread. I found that option and am currently using it as a workaround.

Cheers, John


You’re welcome! :slight_smile:

Nice. Thanks. I need to get some bulbs.

A post was merged into an existing topic: Allow time limits on Shortcut automation in addition to event trigger

Person Detection is working great for me, except once mistaking my cat.
I would like to request. A shortcut to quickly toggle person detection of and on. I like having it set to turn on automatically by event, even with motion detection and alerts off. However, I use the cam to monitor my patio, mostly when my cat is outside, and have to go into the cameras settings everytime I go out on my patio.
Being able to disable/re-enable person detection with a shortcut button would be very convenient.

One of our moderators extraordinaire (@DreadPirateRush) added this to the list at the top for you. Be sure the click the VOTE button at the top! :slight_smile:

When motion is detected, I want the following actions to occur: brighten a set of bulbs, upload a few video clips to the cloud, wait 10 seconds, dim bulbs back to normal. I think adding a wait action would allow a bit more choreography between the devices.

MOD NOTE: This feature has been added to the list at the top of this topic. Be sure to vote by clicking the VOTE button at the top.

  • Change Wyze Bulb setting for X minutes then return to previous state

(i.e. change brightness to 100% for 2 minutes then return to whatever level as before; change color temperature to daylight for 300 minutes)


I’ve added it to the list at the top.


I don’t know if someone already suggested it, but offline sensors would be a great trigger so I don’t have to wait until I notice to force a reboot.

Do you mean this? Loss of Communication/Network Connection Notification & Log


I tried to find if this was on the wishlist, but there is no specific request for this, (only included with other bigger lists)
I’d love the ability to turn on/off sound detection via Shortcuts and IFTTT actions exactly as it is done for motion detection. It will be really helpful to create schedules and custom actions.

Not sure why it’s not available yet, since it already exists for motion detection.

The request for a Shortcut action to turn sound detection on/off is included in this topic (first post). For the corresponding request for IFTTT, see this:

I absolutely love the shortcuts Wyze has now and see many of the “additional” ones as value added. However, I would like to see a separate page for my shortcuts. I have at least 9 shortcuts now and mostly interact with Wyze via my iPhone. If I fully name my shortcuts (something like “Turn All Motion Off”) then I can only see one or two shortcuts and have to swipe to see the rest. If I shorten the names, in order to see more, then I’m left with finding a way to make meaningful shortcuts (example above would become “TAMO”) which makes for lots of remembering. Can we have an additional “page” similar to how a product or group is listed that would allow us to have more screen real estate?

While activating my WYZE system via a shortcut bottom when leaving the house I immediately get motion alerts of just me exiting the door. Can there be a delay toggle added which would give me 30 seconds or so to get outside the camera zone and stop false positive notices? Thanks.

Please note that one of the requested actions on the first post of this topic is a Pause action. That would accomplish this request.

I too would like to be able to schedule recording events to local sd card.
