No Daylight Savings Time Adjustment - Thermostat

And here I was assuming it was off a server all this time.

A toggle would certainly be the easiest to implement but that wouldn’t be much easier than actually changing the time by 1 hour + or -. Just do it when you’re changing the rest of the clocks in your house.

Good suggestion, but both router and my phone show the correct time after the daylight saving time changed. I don’t see any place in the Wyze app to “sync time” for the thermostat. To accomodate daylight savings time with the thermostat schedule, the only way I can do it is by setting each time block off by an hour (i.e. if I want the temp to go up at 7:00a, I need to set it for 6:00a during daylight savings time).

Go to settings > advanced settings , sync time should be at the bottom, at least that is where it is with the bell and cam V3


Thanks but nope, it’s not there for the thermostat. I looked through all places and there is no time or daylight savings adjustment anywhere.

All my cameras automatically adjusted for DST

Guess Wyze overlooked this in the Thermostat

Maybe… I am trying to deep dive settings via google as I don’t have a thermostat. I have the feeling it’s there, that would be an awfully big oversight.

I don’t own the thermostat but how did the date/time get set initially?

Yes until very recently I thought that too but apparently Wyze products synch only with a single phone’s time, which is surprising and disappointing.

They have you specify your street address location. I assume they are using that or grabbed time from your phone or router (and don’t have any provision for updating it after set up.)

This assumes that the core Wyze development team is actually doing the thermostat development. :thinking:

I don’t think they are

My Doorbell, too. Watermark still displaying EST.

Makes no difference - Wyze branded it, Wyze is selling it, Wyze is responsible for what they’re selling.


No argument here, I agree. Just making an observation … if so, it’s added complexity which puts more emphasis on good product mgmt.

Update: This morning, my Wyze Doorbell is now displaying the correct time.

While there is no where in the software to see what time the thermostat “thinks” it is, I can report this morning it came on at the correct time vs. yesterday coming on an hour late. So sometime within the last 24 hours it did update to daylight savings time on its own. They must have it reaching out to sync the time at least once a day likely based on the address you have set up for it.

If that’s the case Wyze still missed the boat by not doing the time sync at 2:00AM which is when DST changes take effect. :unamused:

Agree that it should have happened at 2:00a, but at least we now know that we don’t have to change schedules in the thermostat to compensate for the time change if you wait. Ideally they should roll an update in a future release to align it correctly.

My Wyze pan cam changed for DST - but it didn’t change the alert notification times. I wanted them from 1115pm to 6am, and after getting pinged for movement at 630am Monday noticed that it shifted to 12:15am - 7am.

Be careful what you wish for - Wyze has a long history of breaking as many things as they fix with many/most of their S/W and F/W releases. Testing is not their strong suit.
