I use Google’s Home/Away routines to automatically turn on/off my Wyze lights and turn on/off my Wyze plugs based on my location. The routines cannot turn on/off the cam 3. As I understand it, if the power goes out while my cam 3 is on, the cam would turn back on when power is restored. Would there be a downside to plugging in my Cam 3 into a Wyze plug? Then I can set the routines, when I leave the house, to turn on the plug which would then turn on the cam 3. The Home routine would then auto turn off the plug/cam.
Yes, you can use a plug to control the on/off of the cam.
I use plugs on all my cams, actually. If I am away and something goes wrong with a camera, then that allows me to power-cycle it.
