With the amount of products being released growing and the requests for more Wyze Rule Device Triggers, we have consolidated them here.
This list is for Wyze Rule Device Triggers (device events that can trigger a Wyze Rule Action). For more Wyze Rule Actions, see this related topic: Add More Actions for Wyze Rules.
Please click VOTE at the top to indicate your desire for more Wyze Rule Device Triggers. 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.
Detect by phone app by following
a. leaving wifi coverage area ,
b. geo fence feature of phones GPS ,
c. trigger from smart assistance ( ALEXA /Google/IFTTT),
( they have this feature to arm the security alarm and lights to off when you leave home by saying the trigger command ).
To complement the “motion detected” trigger for the Wyze Cam, how about a “no motion detected” or “motion cleared” trigger? Apparently it exists for the Wyze Sense, not for the Cam. This would allow to turn off/dim a light that was triggered on by the motion detection.
The camera seems to know when to enable de IR lights and turn nightvision, so how about using that same logic for a “it’s dark outside” trigger? That way, all exterior lights can turn on when it’s dark. My work around is to use IFTTT+WeatherUnderground to see my sunset/sunrise times.
I agree, for a hardware driven company, I would like the see more attention give the the software side. I think also driving the software end would make more useful and help drive sales. See apple, now software drive.
To improve personal privacy what about adding the option to turn the camera when the primary users’ phones are connected to the same WiFi network as the camera. This would allow cameras comfortably in all areas of the house without privacy concerns of recording yourself while at home.
We use our camera primarily to watch the dog when he’s alone. No need to see myself watching TV.
I think you mean “trigger” rather than “action”. Accordingly, I have moved your post over here to the Rule Triggers #wishlist topic and added device online/offline to the requested triggers list at the top.
Hello! I have had a number of times when a remote Wyze cam lost connection after the Wifi went out. I would love to be able to configure a Wyze plug that has a camera plugged into it, to automatically restart if the camera is offline. Kind of like a “Watchdog” feature.
Adding local Sunrise/Sunset to the list. I have heat lamps for my lizard that ideally should but turned on and off at sunrise and sunset. Would be nice to set up my plug to turn them on and off at sunrise and sunset and not have to tweak it every month or so.
After at least 2, but mostly 4-6 events pr day when using Auto Night Vision Mode i hope you can implement a function to automaticly turn off Motion detection when switching to/from Night Mode, and turn on again when the switch is done. Of course with a control on event recording is aready running (then delay the switch).
With the addition of sensors the Wyze system could easily be set up as a simple inexpensive security alarm. However the ability to do this is made more difficult by the inability to use more than one individual sensor to trigger an action. We really need to have the ability to add more than one trigger in the rule creation. Another possible way around this would be to have the ability to trigger based on groups. Also, it would be great to have the ability to send notifications based on the group of sensors as well as individual sensors. These abilities would make the system much more usable as a simple security system and should be relatively simple programming changes to the app.
I would suggest a way to set multiple sensors to trigger the same actions (any sensor opens/detects motion, then turn on a smart plug (with a siren plugged in).
Also, the ability to create a shortcut to quickly enable/disable trigger rules all at the same time from the home screen.
Finally, when you set a trigger rule and enable a schedule, as of now, if you make the trigger all day then go back to the schedule it does not remember the original time setting. It makes you re-enter the start and end time every time you re-enable the schedule. It should remember the previously set schedule.
