I would like a feature that allows you to choose the power on or off state of your Wyze plug upon power loss/restore. I think would be incredibly Handy to designate which she would prefer it to be. As it stands it defaults to whatever the last state was. For example. If your plug is on (Powering a device) and it suddenly loses power. When the power comes back on, your plug turns the device plugged into it back on. Or stays off if it was off before the power outage.
This is usually perfectly fine as the last state is prefered. However today I experienced an issue that I hadn’t considered with my computer. And having the option to designate the last power on state of the Wyze Plug would be very handy to prevent it in the future.
Today my power flickered in my apartment and then went down for several hours. Long enough for my back up battery to run out of power after 2 1/2 hours that my Wyze Plug and Computer are connected to.
I use my Wyze Plug to remotely power on my computers in my Apartment. (Its a BIOS setting to restore computer to last power state upon power restored.) Which means I can turn the plug off while the computer is powered down and then turn the plug back on. Which then causes my computer to power on.
This is very handy for turning your computer on remotely or when you’re away from home and need access to it.
Normally this is not a problem since my back up battery helps prevent sudden power loss and thus preventing my computer from turning on or off suddenly. But today the power company was having issues that caused the power to keep turning on and off every few minutes.
The reason this was a problem was because my Wyze Plug was On st the time of power failure. And wind power was restored it kept booting up my computer up too. Having the option to set the plug to last “power state off” would have prevented the computer from booting up and has prevented any potential issues upon sudden power loss again during the flickering.
I hope I’m explaining this clearly. I know it seems a little confusing. I would personally prefer that it didn’t default to off upon power restore. Because somethings I want to come back on when the power comes back on. But somethings I don’t want to power back on when power os restored. Which is where having the option to designate what it does would be handy. If this is not achievable then keeping it as it is now is fine.
To summarize a recommended feature:
Wyze Plug User Controlled Last Power State Option in Settings.
(Power State Upon Power Loss/Restore)
Power State Setting 1: Default - Maintain Last Power State.
(If the Wyze Plug is on and powering a device is that is plugged into it. Then it shall maintain doing so when the power is restored to the Wyze Plug and vice versa)
Power State Setting 2: Power Loss to Wyze Plug switches Wyze Plugs Connected Device Outlet to Power On.
(Thus powering on whatever is connected to the Wyze Plug).
Power State Setting 3:
Power Loss to Wyze Plug switches Wyze Plugs Connected Device Outlet to Power Off.
(Thus maintaining power off to whatever is connected to the Wyze Plug).
