Bug? Scheduled floodlight always turns off in live view

Still searching the forum, but the closest issue I’ve come across is one where the opposite issue happens in live view, i.e., going to live view turns the lights on:

That issue was fixed, and I’m wondering if that code change accidentally resulted in the bug I’m seeing. It’s very easy for me to reproduce. Can a mod or someone from Wyze try and reproduce to confirm? Right now I’m experimenting with some rule workarounds, but I shouldn’t have to get into complex rules to avoid the lights turning off just by going into live view.


  1. Under Floodlight settings, go to Schedule > Rule.
  2. Create rule with a specific start time and end time (can be any time of day and only a need 2-3 minute period for the test).
  3. Add action to “turn on floodlight”
  4. At designated start time, visually confirm floodlights are activated.
  5. On mobile app, go to live view. You will note the lights are on at first.

Expected result:
Lights stay on until period of time specified in rule ends, regardless of whether user is checking on live view or not.

Observed result:
Lights turn off in about 1 second as soon as user checked the live view in the Wyze app.

I thought I’d open a ticket with support, but the support bot was a frustrating experience, especially as it doesn’t even list the floodlight cam as a product, so I didn’t get too far with that.
