I’ll share this with the team! Thanks!
Here today, schedules not working as they’re suposed to. I have cams set to turn on 9am weekdays only. They are turning on 9am every day now which schedule you ask? Would be easy to tell you if they had a title. But actually no where in my schedules are cameras set to turn on Saturday. Log file sent.
I can still access individual or groups of bulbs and control them without schedules.
Agreed, adding a field for description/name should be a priority. As should be the ability to arrange them within the Schedules section.
This would go a long way towards mitigating the single-tasking restriction until it can be expanded.
What turns the cameras off? Is it possible they are just staying on too long?
This turns them off (if I were to do it )
Wouldn’t it be nice having a title so you could tell? LOL. The 7am, everyday turns the cams off. Not sure how them being on too long, would be related to my issue, of the cams turning on everyday instead of weekdays only.
Gotcha! These issues can be either dirt simple, or mind boggling. I think you might be better served to report the issue through the app so you can include logs. That will get your issue in front of the Wyze team. We love to help but I think you may need more help than we as fellow users can supply.
Can you confirm something for me, sorry if it has been discussed in another spot, i cannot find it if so. When creating a schedule, I have a group of cameras, some with their settings for motion detection notifications on, some not. My question is, if I create a schedule to turn on a group of cameras, will they turn on with all their settings adjusted or will I have to create a rule to turn on cams, a rule to turn on motion detection for certain cams, a rule to turn on sound notifications, etc?
You would need I believe separate routines at the moment.
When you turn on and off cameras, they simply turn on and off with their last known settings.
I had the same issue today. I went through and embraced the new schedule system re configured everything. Set a schedule for my interior cams to record motion at 11:30pm and because you can’t wrap time to the next day now, I set another schedule to turn off the interior cams motion recording at 8am.
They started last night fine. But at 10am everything was still running… Also same thing with my wyze bulbs came on at 7:30 last night. Should have turned off at 6am. Still on.
I haven’t been able to test further but seems like schedules stopped running today.
That’s as I would expect a discrete task to behave, not modifying any properties other than what’s specified. Good knowledge off of which to build… Thx hound.
Good ask, @Sovndz.
The new “Schedules” rule is a very welcome update!
However, with the old way (making two separate shortcuts), they were labeled with the name of the device. Now there are no labels of the device associated with the “Schedule” - one only sees a box that shows start and end times BUT not what that schedule is for!
I call this a bug and not a feature and needs to be rectified ASAP please!
Well I’m late to this [expletive deleted]storm.
Monday we started a trip, had a mishap and now are just recovering. Among many other things my laptop died and that was my sole form of communication with this Community.
I “lost” several cam feeds BUT NOT ALL and I’m pretty sure I had NOT set auto-update to on, but now my app is showing 2.5.30.
I had just set my device to issue an alarm when it got a notification from Wyze Beta. And now there seems to be no Wyze Beta.
So now - how do I ensure auto update STAYS turned off?
And @WyzeGwendolyn @WyzeMike please don’t do things like this which wipe out cams over a long weekend.
When the need arises to stop the auto updates, I go to the settings in the Play Store and turn off automatic updates. I believe this can be done also for iOS users in the Apple app store. (I’m currently not using iOS devices.) Anyway, it works for a temporary fix. The downside of doing this is you have to manually update the apps. That’s why I say it is a good temporary fix.
In iOS under settings, iTunes&App Store - selectors for music, updates, etc - turn off updates. Now App Store icon should display a badge with number of updates available. As I learned the hard way, do not select Update All. Now manually select the updates desired individually. However, in this case the next Wyze update will hopefully fix the recent flaws. Also note that after a major iOS update, you should always revisit your settings. Plus iOS updates then to spur a flurry of app updates so don’t ignore manually updating if you have a lot of apps. I’ve seen over 50 waiting to update at times.
Device Trigger Scheduling would be a great idea.
Hey everyone, I’m Greg from the Design Team here at Wyze. We’re so sorry to hear about the issues with the new update. It’s really upsetting to us too, and we’re aggressively working on a solution as fast as possible.
