Wyze Sense FAQs are up!

Kind of depends on what you mean by on/off. In terms of power, the answer is no. They are full-time powered by internal battery.

In terms of functionality, you can disable notifications in the app and/or you can disable linked camera sensor videos. If you disable both, then the sensor is essentially OFF for all practical purposes. However, in this case, history is still recorded. If you don’t want this, you would need to unplug the bridge from the camera or unplug the camera. (The bridge stays operational even if the camera is in OFF mode.)

It would be nice to be able to automate the latter via Shortcuts. You can vote for that at the link below. Be sure to click the VOTE button at the top:

EDIT: According to the Sense support pages, sensor actions are supposed to be available now in Shortcuts, but that doesn’t appear to the case. I’ll report that to Wyze.
