I am noticing that when I turn on my lights via Alexa or the app, it takes about 7 to 10 seconds to actually turn on or even off. Sometimes one will go on and then the other a little bit afterwards.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is this an issue with the Wyze Servrer?
A test of one of mine thru the app & Alexa showed it is working normally ATM. About a second delay, maybe. Nothing approaching 7-10. I’ve seen slight delays between 2 ganged bulbs before. So long as it is slight, I’m thinking it is normal.
My color bulbs are fine. The white or original bulbs are delayed. I will check again. Maybe it was the time.
My test was on a original white Bulb.
I have noticed a slight delay using color bulbs (not using alexa) but when I noticed these delays it was correlated with high bandwidth demand times in my city so I shrugged it off to that. I run a program on my computer for days at a time which gives me measurements on bandwidth speed throughout the day and only on low times have I noted delays ( maybe estimated 2-12 seconds)
Seems a little better now. Not sure what was causing the delay. Thanks for checking.
Will monitor it.
I’ve seen a similar issue but it is intermittent. Assume it is probably an issue with my internet connection which can be fickle. I only have color bulbs.
Yup. Big delays sometimes. I have an array of lights in one room and it can take up to 5 minutes for them to come on. Sometimes in different orders. Now, I am controlling through Alexa so it may be on that end.
I noticed a big issue with this yesterday with my Alexa person detection announcements…they were delayed several minutes for at least part of the day.
Been monitoring all day. It seems to be more consistent over the last couple of days where one of the lights in a group takes longer to go on. I am also noticing that the bulb does talk longer than normal to come on. But it is sporadic.
If I turn the power off and let them reconnect, they will work faster for a bit. In addition, the primary issue seems to be only with my older white bulbs. Not sure why.
Will do more experimenting. Not a huge issue, but something to keep an eye on.
I have been noticing this delay with lights lately also and my three lights on my pole lamp don’t turn on at the same time like they used to , that has different kinds of wyze bulbs in it
I have seen some delays lately on my white bulbs. Also I don’t really like the new interface for the bulbs. I have my bulbs in 3 groups of 2 and with the new interface, it’s hard to control individual bulbs. Just seems to be more complicated. Maybe it’s just me.
It may have nothing to do with Wyze. I have Wyze bulbs and other lights controlled by a Hubitat hub and Z-wave switches. I have a single Alexa command that turns off all lights when I go to bed and have long noticed that it takes 5-10 seconds at times for all of the lights to go off. They also seem to turn off in a different order each night. I would put the blame on the Alexa app since it depends on Wi-Fi and a server somewhere in the cloud.
I’ve had the problem using the Wyze app…not Alexa. Seems to be random but would agree it is probably a cloud issue.
Yea, my issue is with both, Wyze and Alexa. Like you, I believe it is a cloud issue. Which is why I was wondering if thee was a server issue.
I did find that unplugging the lamp or removing the power to the bulb for a few seconds and then restoring it, seems to allow the to work faster. But not 100% of the time.
I also understand that Wyze is working on a FW update to the bulbs which will alleviate some of these issues.
