Hi there, my wyze sensors are integrated with IFTTT which send me different sound alerts based on which sensor is triggered (afaik this cannot be done with the wyze app alone, wouldnt this make a neat feature?) so i can tell just by the sound what is happening .
I am trying to find a way to turn off the notifications for a few hours when i am at home.I have tried these 3 methods to no avail, Wyze is not applying these rules before IFTTT obtains the notifications from Wyze.
menu ->Account-> Notifications->Send Notifications-> turn off for all
menu->add/edit rules->Add->Shortcut->Group Sensors->Turn Off Notifications
menu->add/edit rules->Add->Shortcut->Universal Actions->Mute Notifications
Could someone who has used IFTTT before do me a favor & please try this so we can conclude this is a bug in general or if it is only my android device which is affected? thanks
btw If these were cameras instead of sensors, I could have simply added a rule “Turn off camera” which exists in the list & would work, but Wyze has no equivilent “Turn off bridge”, another feature which i am sorely missing.
You can, turn off the camera which has the bridge in it and that will in effect, turn off the bridge because the bridge piggy backs off the camera and it’s wifi.
Edit/ I stated the above incorrectly. The camera power needs to be removed, not just be turned “off” via app. See post two below for follow-up
And turning off notifications does just that, turn off notifications. Those are different than the triggers or actions.
I stand corrected. Did some testing and when I turn the camera off in app, and then try and go to the “extended devices”, I always got a “camera not connected” and couldn’t see the settings of the bridge and believed it was disconnected as well.
But when I turned the camera off and opened a door with a contact, it updates in the app and sent me the notif. Also I turned my bridge light back on and cycled the apps “on” and “off” for the camera and the bridge light remained illuminated, whereas the camera light turned off and on. Thanks for the correction, I’ll edit the above post.
You are correct, your original comment was an IFTTT issue, I was just correcting the info he had given, as far as your original question I do not know of a way to currently do that using IFTTT. I think there is a way to silence all notification but not specific ones.
thanks. the problem (if it is not specific to just my phone/account) stems from Wyze backend, what alerts it allows to reach IFTTT when wyze camera/sense notifcations are switched off. afaik IFTTT has no fault in this.
btw the link btwn Wyze->IFTTT is working again.
Could someone who has IFTTT setup, please try turning off Wyze notifications like i described
to verify that the problem lies with Wyze, & its not something specific to my phone/account. thanks!
I believe “notifications” are different than “actions” or “triggers” sent to ifttt. I get notifications for a few of my cameras and sense sensors, but not all as I don’t have the notifs enabled for them. But everytime they all trigger I still get action from everything I have an ifttt applets for, turning on virtual.switches in ST or making a log in Google sheets.
The only other option, albeit drastic, would be to cut power to the cam with the bridge, but at that point everything is truly off meaning any other interaction do not work and when powered back up you have to be sure it all connects again.
that would work but If you have multiple cameras all around the house, then you would need a system to manage turning power on & off, e.g. getting yet another set of devices, like amazon smart plugs to make up for this.
a IFTTT trigger called “If notifications turned off” and an
an IFTTT action “Disable contact sensors” would neatly fix this.
