This has been boggling my mind for months no and I would appreciate some help from anyone
I have a wyze bulb installed on my front porch , I have a v3 covering the same porch area .
I want to set up a rule to turn on the porch light at 6:30 pm, and from 6:30 pm - 7 am , if my front porch cam detects a person set the brightness to 100% , wait 30 minutes and then set back to 15% . Turn off the bulb at 7 am .
I can do this on the wyze app and set it up as a rule but on the wyze app it doesn’t allow you to add a WAIT action . Which is what I want , and not turn off the light at all . Keep it completely on the entire time . I can’t seem to add this all together in the routine on the Alexa app.
It works but the issue is that since the routine to turn on the bulb and set to 15% is enabled , when my front camera detects a person and sets the bulb to 100% , the second routine comes into play and kicks in and returns my bulb to 15% after like a minute .
Any Alexa routine geniuses here who can help me please
I just want all of this simultaneously all together in one routine ,
@ 6:30 pm , set bulb to 15%
From 6:30 pm - 7 am when front camera detects a person , set to 100% , WAIT 30 minutes , set to 15%
Routine 1: Turn Bulb on at 6:30 15%
Routine 2: Turn Bulb off at 7am
Routine 3: Person Detected on Camera, set Bulbs to 100% Wait 30 minutes and set Brightness to 15% but only during the hours of 6:30pm - 7:00am
I have been doing some weird things with Alexa, like setting it up to show the camera on my Echo SHow for a period of time and then turn the display off. works nicely cause then I can see what is going on automatically
Idk why I didn’t think of setting up the two rules like that . It makes so much sense now . After months of trying to get this to work , @spamoni4 you came in and solved it swiftly after months of literally twisting my mind over this .
This is why I appreciate the help on this forum . Thanks so much again @spamoni4 !!
The help above was greatly appreciated but now I have been running into a weird occurrence.
When the camera detects a person , the bulb sets to 100% BUT now I’ve noticed that the bulb will not stay at 100% for 30 minutes. Less than a minute after it’s been set to 100% after the cam detects a person , the bulb will go back to 15% less than a minute after.
I have no other routines in the Alexa app or any rules in the Wyze app.
