Add More Actions for Wyze Rules

I imagine it’s a pretty simple task to save a still image for a scheduled action, since we can already upload a short video.

Just need to take a daily picture.

Timelapse doesn’t fit the bill, as you have to wait for video to complete. It’s also broken for daily snaps, it won’t let you use daily function since limited to 30 days, you receive a minimum frame error.

[Mod Edit] Merged with an existing wishlist topic.

Change detection sensitivity at time of day

I have a wyze cam v3 looking at my driveway. At night when there’s even a slight breeze, with motion detection sensitivity set to ~50, it records all night long from the shadows of the trees. Twice a minute theres motion detection. But when I turn the detection sensitivity down to 40 it will not detect a black dog walking across that snow covered driveway on a sunny day. So at 40 it records almost nothing and at 50 records everything which is nothing.

The only solution seems to be to set the sensitivity to 40 at sundown then 50 or more during the day. It’d be wonderful to have that on an automatic timer

I get “complete motion” alerts at night for shadow change (subtle lighting change outside of detection zone) or a light opening/closing. During the day, I get no alerts for a person walking in. I actually never had a person detected.

I change detection sensitivity. From the lowest to higher. It feels like it doesn’t do what’s advertised

Add rule action to disable floodlight

There’s currently an option to turn on and off the floodlight on a schedule but it would be nice to have an option to completely disable it entirely. Motion detection has this feature and it should be added to the floodlight as well. Thanks!

I came here to add my request to the list.

I currently have a rule for:
When door = open, increase entryway light to 100% brightness
THEN
When door = closed for 7 seconds, decrease entryway light to 1% brightness

I would love to be able to add a rule for:
When door = closed for 180 seconds, re-arm alarm in "Home" mode

Unfortunately manipulating the alarm system with rules is not an available variable at this time.

Would be helpful to set different sensitivity for night vs day

My sensitivity setting is good for daytime but during the night it’s

More that that even. I have shadows that disappear at 2PM. That’s 2PM depending in the time of year. Let us do 12 hours at least! 12 Hours before or after sunrise or sunset shoul cover everthing.

Schedule scenes thru App for bulbs

Allow app to schedule scenes.

[Mod Note]: This is a merged #wishlist submission. The “Activate a Bulb Scene” action listed in the 1st post would allow this to be accomplished.

Just received my first color bulb. A bit disappointed.

Please allow scheduling of scenes, Maybe add some special affects like chasing colors, fade from one color to another.

Lots of new products but still way under preforming color bulbs. No updates for months.

Color bulb - add support for turning on scenes in rules

I love saving scenes for my color bulbs, but they’re not as useful if you can’t set them in rules. It would be great to be able to change scenes automatically based on time of day, sunrise/sunset for example.
Thanks!

Please add a pause (delay function) to rules / scripts

Please add a pause to rules. I found a work around in IFTTT (that is a workaround for them as well). Here is the link How to delay an action in an IFTTT Applet - YouTube
With a pause we can add a delay to turn things on and off such as bulbs and cams.

Add a “Wait” option to rules

I frequently find myself making routines with Amazon. And I just recently started to make rules with Wyze. However, I feel like they are missing a major feature, a “wait” option. For example; at sunset I like all of our lights to turn on but, not all at once. I’d like 1 or 2 lights to turn on and then wait 30 seconds and then have another 1 or 2 lights go on etc… I feel like this would add a ton of more possibilities with rules and would make more usability for using wyze rules over amazon routines.

Thanks!

Continuous Recording On/Off as a Scheduling Option

It would be really nice to be able to turn the Continuous Recording to the microSD card off during times when your 99% sure you won’t need it. We can currently turn the whole camera off and on, but it would be nice to keep the camera on during these periods so that it would still capture events or we just want to check the view in real-time from the app.

Additional Rules Functionality

It would be nice to have additional functionality added for rules that encompasses for settings and features. For example it would be nice to be able to have a vacation rule that allows for me to trigger certain features of devices or device groups to be enabled/disabled such as vacation mode for lights and light groups, turn on all cameras, and turn the schedule off for my vacuum, etc when I leave.

Location based triggers that can be tied to multiple devices would also be nice.
