Please allow users to set the minimum Safety Temp to 55 degrees (F). Currently, the highest minimum safety temp allowed is 50 degrees (F), but plumbers in colder climates like the Northeast US recommend a minimum temperature of 55 degrees (F) to prevent pipes from freezing. This is a SAFETY ISSUE
[Mod Edit]: Title modified to be more inclusive and to enhance search clarity.
[Mod Note]: Please note that this wishlist request is related to the Safety Temperatures settings, not the normal temperature settings in “Wyze Thermostat: Lower the minimum temperature setting limit (currently 50F)”. An example of the Safety Temperatures settings:

If you live in a northern climate the current safety temp limits are too limiting to be useful.
Here is the value point for
- People with remote properties?
- Property managers.
If you set your thermostat to 68f for example, if the room temp falls to 65f that likely means something is wrong with the heating system. The thermostat is showing that by reading room temp being 65f when you are calling for 68f.
The current app/ control only has the ability to send notifications once the temp falls to 50f or below. TOO LATE.
By this time the heat could have been OFF for hours or possibly days. If the room temps are at 50f and a notification goes to you it is quite possible that pipes in basement spaces or outside wall regions could already be near of at freezing temps.
Now the homeowner or property manager has very little time to response to heating system repairs.
PLEASE CHANGE THIS TOOL TO ALLOW THE USER TO SET WHATEVER VALUE FOR SAFTY TEMP RANGE THEY CHOOSE.
thank you for reading.
I would like to see the ability to set a lower temperature. I live in a state where temperatures drop below 32 degrees. I would like to maintain a temperature just above freezing so that my water lines do not freeze. This is warehouse space. My only option is to set my thermostat to 50 degrees. This temperature is much higher than I need, thus making my energy bills much higher than they could be.
