Outdoor camera trigger Alexa routine

I use the Wyze V2 camera to use person detection to trigger an Alexa routine to turn on lights. I recently installed an outdoor cam with AI person detection turned on. While the camera does detect a person it does not correctly trigger the routine. Again this feature does work with my V2 camera but not the outdoor camera. Thanks.

Welcome! I am trying to get a V2 to use PD to turn on lights as well. Does yours work on a consistent basis?

It does work somewhat consistently. When it doesn’t ( I’m speculating) I think it related to the 5 minute cooldown. Ie if it doesn’t see the person in the first 12 seconds of motion - it won’t detect the person. Hope that makes sense.

Good luck

Ahh ok, I didn’t think about that!
