I have two porch ceiling light sockets controlled by a standard wall switch. Got out the ladder, screwed my new Wyze bulbs both in, put the ladder away. Followed the instructions to put the bulbs into setup/pairing mode by toggling the switch. Both begin pulsing. OK, good. I can set up the first one. Happy I am. But the PROBLEM: when I toggle the switch to put the bulbs in setup mode to set up the second bulb, I lose all settings in the first. This shouldn’t happen since the setup mode does appear to time out after about 40 seconds. So the simple feature should be: if a bulb is put into setup mode but does not get a wifi connection and times out, it should retain any previous settings it had. This would allow one to easily set up multiple bulbs on one switch.
The advice I got from the Wyze support chatline is literally “you have to get back on your ladder, unscrew one bulb, set up the other, then re-screw the second and unscrew the one that you set up, then set up the second, then re-screw the first.” I feel re-screwed.
Reading this forum I see other references to setting up multiple bulbs but apparently no one else was as put off as I am ? Maybe having to get a 16 foot ladder out multiple times will make you grumpy.
Wyze techno geniuses: Is this something you can fix?
By the way, not knocking the chat-based support. He was as helpful as he could be and very courteous. And, yes, I still love all the Wyze products we’re using in my home.
