Motion sensor + Bulb in bedroom - try a lower sensor placement

Just wanting to pass along this idea that’s working for me. I installed a bulb on a bedside lamp with a motion sensor to turn it on. I had the sensor sitting on a dresser, and it would sense almost all motion in the room. However, the light was turning on and off all night because I’m not a still sleeper.

Moving the sensor closer to the ground, on a table leg about 12 inches from the floor solved it! It still turns on the light when anyone enters the room, but ignores my nocturnal acrobatics.


Nice solution. My wife said she would have just duct taped me to the bed but I like your solution better!


I am trying to find a solution like that but at 12" the dog sets it off with every movement lol


that’s something completely different :sweat_smile::rofl::joy::sunglasses:…Wyze has not entered that market yet.


How did you get your wyze motion sensor to connect to your light bulb?

I’m trying to find a way to turn off all sensors at night. This way we don’t have to worry about triggering a light in the middle of the night. I’m adding sensors to my kids rooms with bulbs as well. Last thing I want is for all the bulbs to come on at midnight when they make a midnight bathroom run.

Maybe this solution may help solve your problem. :slight_smile:

Seems like a no-brainer for Wyze to add a feature like this into the software. “Follow rules betwee x and x times” etc. I assume it’ll come along eventually.

Any idea for 15 square meter bedroom?
How many sensors should be needed or better location in order to turn fan/lights on when movements are detected and turn them off if not? While sleeping? (No wyze bulbs lights installed, another kind of vsync switch) I have one in my kitchen AND by trial and error found the best place to cover all movements area.
I’m timid to get three, one for every hall.
I was thinking one for the door, then sensors inside would detect movements and keep fan/lights on. I dont know if one of three clear status for a period would turn fan/lights off. If I take a nap at afternoon with no movements would turn fan off.
I would like to turn lights only after 6 pm.
I’m using Alexa integration for kitchen.
