Possibly… interesting. I figured questions would be the same.
My guess is that the questions were dynamic based on earlier answers.
As suggested, I filled out the survey. There was nothing on there about a button, so I put that in the fill-in fields. If they make one, I will buy it!
Nope - nothing about a button on my survey.
No mention of a button for me either.
And I’m one of the tens (hundreds?) of millions of people who can’t install Smart Switches because my house wiring is too old.
I do not have a lot of information I can share about this yet but you will be glad to know I can announce this is now in-development.
Awesome! Looking forward to this one
That’s great news, thank you for the update!!
Awesome! My first product suggestion that’s actually being developed!
This is exciting. I know some people have made their own Wyze buttons in the past with 3D printing (and modifying a Wyze Contact sensor with a spring to work like a button).
Hopefully the button will be able to tell the state of a device to know what to do. For example, with lights, if we push the button it should turn the light on if it is off, and turn the light off if it is on…I mean, we could get 2 buttons and have one for on and one for off, but it would be so much cooler if it would just do the opposite of the current state.
I’ll get some either way even if it is just a 1 rule button, but just thinking of how convenient it would be to have state recognition like that.
Oh, we could probably also have it be on schedules, like if I press the button in the daytime then turn the lights on 100% brightness, and if I press it at night, do like 1% on sunmatch. Or any number of other things…press a button on the way out of the house and have it turn off ALL the lights, set the thermostat to away, maybe arm the HMS (if it ever gets rules), turn on cameras and notifications, lock all the doors (if they have the original Wyze lock), run the Robot Vacuum while we’re gone, etc. These things could be really cool. I look forward to it!
Yea! And stuff like double press, hold, etc
Oh yeah! Good thinking. I guess that’s a good solution instead of doing opposite state…it could just have one press for on, and double press for off, maybe hold to go to 1% brightness or something. I forgot about all that. I was thinking about all the ways people used the makeshift contact sensors as buttons, but a real button would potentially have many more potential options if Wyze programmed it that way.
Agreed on the need for a toggle (opposite state), but some low-hanging fruit for Wyze would be to implement it in the Wyze Switch. I can toggle the Wyze Bulbs via the Wyze Switch, but not a Wyze Plug via the Wyze Switch.
So for my lamp plugged into a Wyze Plug, I have to assign two separate Wyze Switch actions to On and Off (such as single press for on and double-press for off). While having the option to turn on and turn off exclusively is good, it really should also include the ability to toggle (change state from on to off or vice-versa).
I am very happy to hear. I wanted this because I don’t keep my phone next to my bed, and I need an easy way to turn my bedroom lamp off, and not “Completely turn off” so I can turn it on remotely without having to go to my bedroom to turn the lamps main switch back on.
An easy approach for many people would be Alexa or Google integration for voice control…
As Customer said, Alexa/Google is what I use most of the time for that purpose.
In my previous house, I also kept a Contact sensor on the bed headboard and if I opened that contact sensor, it would dim the light, and if I closed it, it turned off the light.
I would definitely love to have buttons though! So I look forward to this.
Thanks for making a Wyze Smart Button. It will save us a lot of time making things happen with the phone app.
Is there a way the roadmap can begin to include target timeframes?
Knowing a smart button is “in-development” is good but normal folks have no way to know does this mean in a couple months or years?
This year, next year, Q3, order of priority etc
