Add More Actions for Wyze Rules

It would be great to have a Rule setting that would allow you to change the camera Motion Detection Sensitivity for day and night:

Example -
7am to 7pm camera Motion Detection Sensitivity set to 20%
7:01pm to 6:59am Motion Detection Sensitivity set to 100%


Maybe this is the right place for this? I couldn’t find this anywhere else on the forums…
I would love to have the ability to create a shortcut to enable/disable one (or multiple) schedules or triggers!

For instance, it would be great to be able to enable/disable a few triggers that change porch/garage light colors if someone is at the front door or in the driveway. I don’t want these to always be enabled and find myself constantly going in and editing the triggers to enable/disable them manually. A shortcut would let me easily do this from my Watch…

Yes! And this is similar/related to my standing request for “Groups” of Rules just like we have “Groups” of Devices, so we could enable/disable several rules at a go, instead of the current laborious individual on/off toggle process.

Add a timer for Rules

I would love to be able to add a timer to my rules where if the back door opens between dusk and dawn, I can turn on the light for 5 minutes and go ahead and have it automatically turn back off after that time is done.

Add audible HMS hub warning for climate and leak sensors

Is it possible we can get a trigger to set off an audible alert at the home monitoring sense hub to say leak detected or temperature warning etc…

If leak detected play alert on sense hub
If temperature falls below 40 play alert on sense hub

[Mod Note]: Post merged to request for more actions as triggers already exist.

The triggers “If leak detected” and “If temperature falls below 40” already exist. Need actions “alert on sense hub” for your scenarios.

We also need a rule for:

Device off, not working or plugged out. Like this we will be notified and appropriate action can take place.

I would love love love the ability to turn off the bulbs after a set time.
For example if I set a rule to where when Wyze Cam 3-4th camera detects pet I can turn on color bulb 4 and even select a color. Sadly I know no way of having it turn off once motions stops or after a set time. So I have to either go in app and turn it back off or ask Alexa too.

What I am asking is can you please please make a after so many minutes do X feature? In this case I would know when stray kitty is on patio by the light color or when he has likely left so I can go get his bowl/replace the water but it would have other uses as well. As of right now the triggers are GREAT for turning plugs and bulbs on, but very poor for turning them back off again in automation.

[Mod Note]: Post moved from Wyze Bulb Color Firmware Beta Test thread.

I would like to request an option for a temporary action following a trigger. This can be like a light goes on when motion is detected and then it goes off after a few minutes. Or during Halloween, when someone shows up at your doorstep color lights change a set color for a minute and then it goes back to a default color. Or if you enter a code wrong on the keypad or if the door is left ajar the color of a light can change and then later it returns to default color

Feature request: Add scene selection to smart bulb rule actions

Currently, the Android app has no way to assign an action for selecting a scene when creating a smart light rule. As scenes are the only reasonable way to pre-set a blend of brightness and color on a per-bulb basis for a room, this requires setting separate rules for each of these things in a room if you want a scene to be scheduled. In addition to being onerous, it is very difficult to have the resulting bulbs in a room end up with the same color, since the color has to be selected manually per bulb when scheduling actions. The simple addition of selecting a scene as a rule action would greatly simplify this. Please consider adding this feature to the app.

[Mod Note]: This is a merged #wishlist submission. The “Activate a Bulb Scene” action listed in the 1st post would allow this to be accomplished. Remember to scroll up to the top and click the VOTE button.

In Alexa skill I can assign a wait timer then turn off. Sadly Alexa only applies to person detected, not the other various levels Wyze has such as pet, package and vehicle. If that skill was updated to include other forms of triggers I could do what I want and so much more of what others want problem solved.

Would like to have the option to turn Sound on or off in Rules. That way when I am home my “at home rule” I can turn sound off but leave motion detection on as the camera points out the window towards the stairs to the front door.

For my "not at home’ rule I would like sound and motion detection on so if someone breaks in, it picks it up.

[Mod Note]: This is a merged #wishlist submission. The “Turn on/off sound detection” action listed in the 1st post would allow this to be accomplished. Remember to scroll up to the top and click the VOTE button.

Would like the ability to make rule to make a wyze camera or other device to sound the door camera chime.

[Mod Note]: This is a merged #wishlist submission. The “Activate Doorbell Chime” action listed at the top in the 1st post would allow this to be accomplished. Remember to scroll up to the top and click the VOTE button.

I would like to be able to set a duration for my front porch WYZE BULB COLOR to stay on after being triggered by the motion of the WYZE Cam V3

Currently I can set a rule to have the cam trigger the bulbs when motion is detected but they then remain on indefinitely. I would like to have them on with a color I have set them come on bright white when triggered by cam motion then after say, 2 minutes revert back to the setting they were on before triggered by the cam.

[Mod Note]: This is a merged #wishlist submission. The “Change Bulb brightness/color temp/color/on/off for X minutes then return to previous state” action listed in the 1st post would allow this to be accomplished. Remember to scroll up to the top and click the VOTE button.

Need a way to pause a specific camera for a chosen amount of time then it will go back to the previous setting automatically.

[Mod Note]: This is a merged #wishlist submission. The “Pause (wait) X seconds/minutes” action listed in the 1st post would allow this to be accomplished. E.g., create shortcut: turn off cam, pause X time, turn on cam. Remember to scroll up to the top and click the VOTE button.
