Are floodlights controllable through the indoor light switch

Can you make the flood lights come on by turning the indoor light switch off and then back on, or can you only make them come on through the Wyze app on your phone (or through sensed motion)?

Welcome back @BTinNC.

If I understand your question correctly, the answer is yes to all 3.

Assuming you are referring to the Wyze switch.

You can turn the flood light on and off with “additional controls. As seen here

You can turn the floodlight on and off via the Wyze App through the camera controls or by way of a shortcut as shown below

And lastly you can set the floodlight to turn on with motion


Great answer, thank you! I was actually referring to the standard on/off switch, as I wasn’t familiar with the wyze switch. I’m looking into it now and I think that is what I’m going to get.

You could use the normal switch I’d guess, but then you’d loose all smart features and camera usage while the unit is powered off.


Happy to have assisted.

And yes, as @Omgitstony mentioned the v3 camera with the floodlight accessory requires constant power for the capabilities to work. So if you had a normal on off switch, then you would lose all capabilities by removing power to the camera and floodlight.
