Same thoughts as OP. As an example the Dyson HP04 I have has night mode which dims/turn of the screen and limits auto to 40% for noise, BUT you can still adjust it up to 100% with the screen still off. Really wish night mode was just light off, and limited to level 3 fan mode or something on the Wyze. No complaints otherwise.
What do the display numbers indicate?
Will look up the index, but it represents your Air Quality Index.
As it measures you Air Quality Index, it adds it to the graph in the app, the white dots indicate what the quality is at that time.
I also use the purifier to create white noise in the bedroom to help with sleep. So, I generally keep the fan on “high” but have to turn the purifier so that the display light is less visible.
I would love to be able to toggle the display on or off, or dimmable as part of the manual options.
@zachlee47 - confirmed after installing mine and skimming through the Quick-Start guide (page 2), the laser sensor is on the back of the unit under the handle - so you would be fine covering the display. I assume this is why they ask for 20 inches of clearance around the unit so the laser has enough area to scan.
I liked your cardboard suggestion but found 3M Temflex friction tape laying around, which doesn’t look terrible and easy to remove with no residue. Better than no dimmer or having to use night mode!
@macnicol - see here:
At the very least you’d think Wyze would have the AQI numbers below 10 not light up the zero’s. So when my AQI is say 5, I don’t need the extra brightness of the two zero’s showing 005.
Air Purifier Display
I’d like to put in a feature request to be able to run the fan on turbo with the display off or dimmed. The noise from the fan is perfect to sleep by, but the display is too bright.
I’d also like to be able to set a rule for the turbo setting to come on and off.
If they added a usb charging port and a small speaker that only played white noise, I could almost justify an air cleaner in every room
@Loki how does this voting process work in terms of how many votes are needed to make a necessary feature part of the dev teams production timeline?
Thanks in advance.
There is not a specific number of votes that triggers inclusion in Wyze’s roadmap for development. The relative voting rank of wishlist topics is only one of a very many factors that affects the decision to research, develop and implement a subject. Among these factors are potential development cost (there are many, many wishes competing for limited development resources), interaction with other products/features, ease of implementation, etc. I’m sorry I don’t have any more insight I can provide.
The best way to get more information on Wyze’s plans is to participate in Wyze staff events such as the AMA happening tomorrow: AMA with Wyze VP of Product, Steve McIrvin - 6/15/2022 1:00 PM Pacific
I have a roll of automotive window tint film for applications like this. Goes on with a little spray and a squeegee, comes off if needed. I have a few things that I’ve treated this way.
Seems like such a simple fix, we want dim or display off but more fan options. Manual fan selection is fine both by using touch buttons on the unit/display or via app.
On the unit, using the buttons, you should be able to hit fan speed then tap sleep symbol and it turns off display. If someone wants a lower fan speed , tap buttons to desired fan and then tap sleep again.
App is just as easy. Pick fan speed, then Hit sleep mode.
Wyze Air Purifier LED lights toggle on/off on Auto Mode
I would like the option to turn off/on the led lights on Auto mode instead of just on Sleep mode.
This is currently in beta testing and will be available in the next production Air Purifier firmware release.
Thank you for the information!
Thanks for the update @Seapup. Glad to see this so close to production.
We appreciate Wyze taking the constructive feedback.
For whatever reason my air purifier appears to have had the option for awhile
now. The only problem is it does nothing.
I am not on the beta program either FWIW.
I received and activated my Wyze Air Purifier yesterday (woo!) and have not found any information on the LED Display setting toggle. I noticed it did not affect functionality on the device and started looking around on the forums. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
For everyone looking to dim the display… buy a sheet of LED Light Blocking Stickers on Amazon - https://a.co/d/exPsmQU - cheap, non-damaging solution while we wait for the official software fix.
Black tape is cheap, and works fine.
