Add More IFTTT Triggers and Actions

Here’s a Wishlist topic that I think you’ll probably want to vote for:

We need a trigger to disable/enable motion sensors (not the camera but the actual wyze motion sensor).

Instead of light bulb on/off actions it would be better to have a change state action. I have three bulbs in one of my rooms and it takes 6 IFTTT triggers (3 on/3 off) to control the lights with my SmartThings button. If we had a change state option I could reduce this down to three applets and then when group actions are available it would go down to one which would be awesome!.. until Wyze builds a smart button of course!

PLEASE add more actions! Given that the Wyzecams have a problem with hysterisis when the light levels are low (night vision filter keeps turning on and off constantly until the levels drop/increase sufficiently), the people who are bothered by it can just manually establish which times of day they want night vision and which times they want regular. please

I hope Wyze adds more actions and triggers soon!

Please expose person detection for IFTTT so actions can be done upon detecting a person not just a motion.

That’s a must have!

Please make this happen.

“Please expose person detection for IFTTT so actions can be done upon detecting a person not just a motion.”

I have the wyze cams connected to my security system, and would be very useful to have a IFTTT trigger when person detected to ring the siren.

That would be really cool! I’ll mention it to the team but I don’t know how/if this would work.

@WyzeGwendolyn well, we already have “motion detection” trigger on IFTTT, and everytime motion is detected, we can trigger some action.

But it is for general motion, that means it get triggered even for some leafs blowing or shadows, if will be more useful if we had person detection as well so we can trigger events only if person was detected instead of actual “motion detected” trigger.

Thank you.

As others have mentioned, I have a need for actions to work on groups.

For example, I have a set of Wyze cameras in GroupA and another set in GroupB. When TriggerA occurs, I want the cameras in GroupA to turn on. When TriggerB occurs, I want the cameras in GroupB to turn on. Currently, to effect this behavior, I need an applet for each camera. In my case, that amounts to seven applets.

I would love it if Wyze had an action to turn on all devices in a group. That would reduce the applets in my above scenario from seven to two. I also need the “Enable motion detection” and “Turn off device” actions to work on groups.

See the mockup below for suggestions for enhancing the “Turn on device” action.

We need Triggers for Wyze bulbs

I would love to be able to schedule device triggers on and off. For instance, schedule my motion sensor to trigger some light on in my kitchen when it detects motions, but only between the hours of 11pm and 6am. Basically any way to schedule device triggers would be very useful.

Guys, please add an IFTTT toggle for the IR lights! It’s already in the app, it would be so simple to do.

I’d love the ifttt actions for leaving the door sensor open option. For example when the back door is open longer than 5 minutes set my thermostat to off.

This is an important addition for IFTTT.

If we have control over toggle of Pan Scan, I can turn my camera toward the house when my weather station conditions are unfavorable for my exposed camera, by simply adding a waypoint that turns the Pan Cam at the wall, and one that points it at the normal position. Turning Pan Scan ON for longer than 10 seconds, then of OFF to lock in the alternate position is how we could toggle its orientation.

Simple. Just need the IFTTT feature please.

@WyzeGwendolyn is this anywhere NEAR being implemented??
This is an important addition for IFTTT.

I like your idea, but in addition would be the addition of being able to use multiple triggers “or’d” or “and’ed” together so that any one of them would trigger the action. If that already exists, I haven’t figured out how to do it, and I really don’t want to have to create a half dozen rules to have more than one sensor trigger the action.

I would also actually prefer that it was done in the Wyze app directly rather than IFTTT, because I believe that it would be faster that having to go thru both systems.
