Two Wyze smart bulbs in 2 separate groups

I have one group with four Wyze smart bulbs in it.

My challenge is that I’d like to add a second group containing 2 of the bulbs from Group 1, but with schedules set that do don’t overlap Group 1. How can I accomplish this ?

Group 1- on sunset, off 9:50pm- bulbs 1,2,3,4
Group 2- on 9:51pm off sunrise- bulbs 1 and 2 only.

Wyze devices can’t be in two separate groups at the same time. They can only be in one group and they can’t be subgrouped.

EDIT: I just thought of a simpler way without modifying the 4 bulb group: just create a second schedule rule for on at 9:51pm off at sunrise and select the individual bulbs 1 & 2 as the devices, not the entire group. Otherwise :point_down:

You will need to remove bulbs 3 and 4 from the 4 Bulb Group and create a Bulb Group B, renaming the original group Bulb Group A (bulbs 1 & 2). Then add Bulb 3 and 4 to Bulb Group B.

Go to the original schedule rule for the 4 bulb Group “On at Sunset”, and modify the Devices so that it reflects the same command (I assume you use Turn On) but you will select two device groups: Group A (bulbs 1 & 2) and Group B (bulbs 3 & 4).

Create another rule schedule rule for on at 9:51pm off at sunrise but only select Group A (bulbs 1 & 2) as the device.


Thanks Slabslayer
I’ll try it tonight

In addition to what @SlabSlayer indicated above, you can actually setup a rule and then set the action on the individual bulbs.

so basically, you can leave Group 1 alone and the instead of using Group 2, your Rule would Reference Bulb 1 and 2 for the actions independently. Especially on the Off option.


I just realized that you are turning bulbs 1 & 2 on at sunset, off at 9:50pm, and back on 1 minute later and running them to sunrise.

No need to have the Group 1 rule turn them off at all.

Rule #1: On at Sunset, Off at 9:50pm, Bulbs 3 & 4
Rule #2: On at Sunset, Off at Sunrise, Bulbs 1 & 2


Good catch. I missed that myself.

Thanks for taking the time to think this through for me. I’ll attach the two rules. I’ve set up based on your input. Thanks again. :grinning:

Looks good. Except for Thursday on G3 and G4. Is there something special about Thursdays that you don’t want these lights to come on?

Lol. Just checking on how close you are looking.

I noticed that Thursday got turned off accidentally and I fixed it right after my last post. You do look close. :+1:




Update- working as hoped. Thanks
