All Wyze actions have an Action Field to specify the camera, except the Notifications actions. Those, unfortunately, work only on the global notification setting and not the per-camera notifications. For example, here’s the action block for enabling motion detection, which does have a camera selection:
But here’s the one for Notifications, which does not have the camera selection field:
The per-camera option for notification control needs to be added.
Another very important Action that could be added would be “Execute Shortcut”. This would run any shortcut that the user has set up in their Wyze profile. Adding this would eliminate the need for many of the other requested Actions, since they could be accomplished via the Shortcut Action. Even better, this would allow multiple actions to occur via a single IFTTT recipe.
@Brad_Taylor… I moved your other two posts to this different topic since those requests are way outside the scope of what is possible with IFTTT (not possible for Wyze to implement within the IFTTT universe).
Thanks for the suggestions! I think you would be able to do something like that with the suggested additions, but AFAIK IFTTT is only able to have a single response to a trigger, making this complicated.
IFTTT Applet #1 Trigger: At a specific time (IFTTT-provided) Action: Snap a photo (WyzeCam-provided)
IFTTT Applet #2 Trigger: A photo is snapped (WyzeCam-provided) Action: Send an email (IFTTT-provided) with… Ingredient: Photo attached / URL to the photo / something else to grab the image (WyzeCam-provided)
I second this ASAP!!! Enable/disable sound detection via IFTTT is critical to take full advantage of the cam. I and many others have many use cases for sound detection, such as “bark monitors” to keep an eye on our furry kids.
Just signed up for the IFTTT developer platform with allows for multiple “That” instances in the same applet but I still can’t add the same action on multiple devices even though the platform allows you to add as many “thats” as you want. Anyone try out the IFTTT developer platform? Is this a limitation on the Wyze side of things. Just looking to Do an:
“If” _____ connects to wifi
“Then” turn off motion on 1 camera,
“Then” turn off motion on 2 camera,
“Then” turn off motion on 3 camera,
“Then” turn off motion on 4 camera.
For anyone else wanting to take a look, you can sign up for free at Plans - IFTTT.
It looks to me that IFTTT does not allow the same precise trigger to be used more than once. For example, if I create an applet with an trigger, I can select the Wyze “disable motion detection” action. But when I try to add a second action, that particular action isn’t on the list.
Excellent suggestions! This would also allow stuff on IFTTT like, if the camera transitions from regular to night vision mode (if camera is located outside, switching to night vision can indicate that it’s night time), I can trigger stuff like turn on inside lights controlled by Hue or SmartThings.
Right on, @njaimes. I think the “Media (video/photo related to the trigger)” ingredient covers that. “Ingredients” in IFTTT are individual elements you can use in actions.
So to use your example:
Trigger: Motion is detected
Action: Android, Google Drive, or some other IFTTT action that allows viewing media, being passed ingredients for Device Info (camera name), Media (video related to the trigger), and any other relevant metadata.
Note neither of those ingredients are currently available, but both are on the list for ones I’d like to see added.
Please set up a Wyze function on IFTTT to allow the execution of our own created Wyze Shortcuts created within the Wyze app. This would allow for a tremendous flexibility and range of actions not currently available. We could customize actions for individual cameras and not be limited to one action on a one-or-all basis. Could be tremendously useful with geo-fencing in particular.
I think this would be a very powerful ability to offer for an already good system!
