Lamp Socket - "in the dark"

I would like to see the addition to 2 of the 3 “turn on” detection settings. Specifically, the option to Turn On When 1) Motion is detected in the dark, and 2) Sound is detected in the dark. I would like to have some control over what constitutes “in the dark”, or simply, to have the OPTION to NOT select “in the dark”. For example, I have two cameras and lamp sockets in my basement. One points towards a wall with a small window, and one points the opposite direction. Even though the basement is more or less “dark”, the camera pointed at the wall with the window will not activate the lamp socket for motion or sound until there is no light coming in from the window. I would like the ability to adjust how much “darkness” is required to activate the lamp socket, or at least, make “in the dark”, a separate selectable option.

Thank you!

Welcome to the Wyze User Community Forum @davidt512! :raising_hand_man:

If you would like to request that Wyze add this feature, that is handled thru a new topic post in the Wishlist. Go to the Wishlist, search the topics for one that matches your request. If you find one, vote for it at the top, like :heart: some posts, and add your reply post to support the request. If you do not find a match, submit a new topic for approval.

That’s what I thought I did by posting this! Then it required me to select tags, categories, etc… so I did… and now apparently, that process, led me away from the wishlist? And the search mechanism is not helpful, I see no way to do a keyword search…

Furthermore, I get a message saying that I’m NOT ALLOWED to post to the wishlist… so, damned if I do, damned if I don’t. I wish that the wishlist allowed people to post wishes

Because you are a new user, you will need to increase your Trust Level by browsing some topics, posting some more, and visiting regularly. As soon as your Trust Level increases, which doesn’t take much, you should be able to post a Wishlist request.

Keyword searches of the wishlist can be accomplished two ways.

  1. Perform a standard search with your keyword(s) but preface your keywords with the # symbol immediately followed by “wishlist” (no spaces).

  2. Go to the Wishlist, click the search icon, enter your keyword(s), and click the checkbox to search only the Wishlist category.
