After struggling to get my Garage Door Controller setup, I noticed that the Micro-USB connector labelled “Connect to Controller” that I was… connecting to the Controller… was not feeling like it was making/maintaining a connection (the light would turn on, and go off as I believe it is supposed to), but when I went to the step to add the controller, it said it couldn’t find it.
So… I went out on a limb here… and swapped the two Micro-USB connectors… the “Connect to Camera” was moved to the controller (and I could feel it connected much better than the one that was Labeled “Connect to Controller”), and the one labelled “Connect to Controller” was moved to the pigtail connection for the included V3 camera.
BAM… it worked this time.
I initially wanted to pull the two plugs and take pictures to compare the two plugs, but I feared messing with it now that I had it working.
So, if you can’t get your system to setup, and after inserting the Micro-USB into the controller, if feels like a sloppy/lose connection, try swapping the two connectors to see if you get a tighter connection.
That said… WHY are is Wyze still using Micro-USB on anything? My nine Wyze Night Lights have USB-C, and my camera’s are still all using Micro-USB? Hopefully Wyze will ditch Micro-USB completely, and go with USB-C on all new products?
One question I have, (swore I saw this discussed, but my forum search skills must be challenged on this one…) Can I setup a rule to Auto Close my garage door after I drive my car out of the garage?
Bonus question… will I ever be able to have the garage door auto open as I arrive? (my Wyze Lock Auto Opens when I arrive home (great feature)… (The Wyze Lock is on the door between my garage and house)
I’ve read that for security purposes that Wyze opted not to have the Garage Door Controller auto open the garage door… Well… if I had the Wyze Lock on my front door… and it auto opens… where’s the concern for Security there? (I’d rather someone have access to my garage than my house, if security is the issue at hand here)
I see the Wyze Lock has Alarm settings for “Door Jam Alarm” and “Left Open Alarm” Can Wyze implement something like this for the Garage Door to alert that the door is open and/or closed and/or in a position other than open/closed? Perhaps have selected V3 Cams and/or Wyze Sense Hubs and/or the Doorbell speaker be used to audibly alert that the garage door is open when it should not be open? FLASHING Wyze Bulbs and/or Wyze Strip Lights would be a great feature here as well.
Currently, I have a entry sensor on my garage door to trigger my headboard light (Wyze Plug) to ON and two Strip Lights (behind main TV and under shelf in Office) turn on to red and stay on to alert me that I might want to check my garage door. (also my ceiling fan cluster of four Wyze Color lights turn on to red, then another rule turns those four lights off after 45 seconds)
