iOS 16.5.1. WYZE app 2.43.0 (9)
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve had to edit the list of actions for a rule so I was disappointed recently when I could not reposition actions within a rule to control timing. The 3 horizontal bars icon to the right of each action has been replaced by a pen edit icon; thus, the action can no longer be repositioned. Was that change intentional or a program error? The pen icon is redundant since you can only review rule actions when in the edit mode.
Confirmed on Android as well. Version 2.43.0 (312) on Moto edge+ 5G UW (2022) running Android version 12.
Repositioning Actions within a rule to control timing has never been an option.
Wyze Rule Actions have always been Shotgun Blast mode. Everything fires at once. There is no specific order of execution.

Sequential Logic for actions: right now Wyze rules blast all actions simultaneously, but they should execute in the order they are set in the rule. Related to this, Wyze could then add a “Wait X time Interval” action.
This would allow us to do rules like: “when Trigger A happens, execute Action B, then wait 10 seconds, then execute action C and D, then wait 10 minutes and Turn off the lights” or something like that.
Here is some light reading to support the above.
My first recommendation is to remove the actions “Turn on motion detection” and “turn on notifications” from this rule and only use “turn on camera”.
Now go into the camera device settings and enable motion detection and enable notifications. I recommend this because when the camera is off. It doesn’t detect motion or send notifications anyway so using only the one rule action to turn on the camera is all you should need. Are there any actions that are below the…
I just created a shortcut to visually test the rule order and commands received issues.
I first created a shortcut named “test on” with “turn on” and “turn off” one of my bulbs. See below:
With the bulb off, I waited a bit after I created the shortcut then pressed the shortcut. In all, I pressed the shortcut four times, and the bulb only turned on twice, and remained off the other two times. Each time the bulb turned on, I would click the butto…
