Add More Device Triggers for Wyze Rules

I ended up going this route. I didn’t think about the motion sensor having different motion parameters than the camera. Thanks for the suggestion, works perfectly!

A delay action in Wyze would be great as well. Thanks for your information about Alexa.

My current work around was to create two rules, device triggers, for the camera. One - when detected motion turn the switch on. Second - when switch was on for 1 minute to turn the switch off. This will work for now.

Would really like to be able to set sensor Videos triggered off either Open event or Close event.
Have some sensors setup to stay open till something happens and would like to capture video based on the Close event just like I can today with the Open event.

I’d like to be able to set a device group as a trigger (a few motion sensors all having been clear for a set amount of time) to turn off some Wyze Bulbs and a Wyze Plug.

At this point, it only appears to be possible to have an individual motion having been clear to be a trigger.

Good idea. I think you could achieve this with ITTT in the mean time.

Is there any way to have a a group of devices trigger another device/group of devices?

In my case, there is a specific area of my house where all lights are under 1 group . I want them to turn on when EITHER of the two sensors that I have pickup motion, but I want the lights to automatically go off only when BOTH sensors have been clear.

Can you make it possible for a Device Group to be used as a trigger. For example: I use multiple motion sensors across 2 rooms. I would like the lights to go on when any of the sensors are active and go off when all of the sensors are inactive. The device group displays when 1, multiple and none are active. So, I believe, this would be an easy addition. Treat the group as a device.

Really would like the ability to trigger the alarm built into the V3 Cam’s. I would love to be able to set a schedule and sound the alarm if a person is triggered for X amount of time, etc.

Had a situation where some local thugs are rifling through vehicles and would have loved to set the alarm off the other evening (automatically) to scare them off. Our vehicles are locked so he just kept on moving to the neighbors.

There doesn’t appear to be any way to setup a trigger or action for the sprinkler device.
Why would you need this ? Well I suffer from stray cats using my back yard as their toilet, and it struck me that a solution for this would be to turn a certain sprinkler on for maybe 30 seconds when I detect movement or pet recognition from my V3 cam. This could also work for people walking their dogs and allowing them on my front yard.
There are of course existing devices you can buy that do this…pressurized spray cans with sensors and pest deterrent sprinklers found at your local hardware store and pet store , but if you could do this with and existing cam and sprinkler device I think it would be a very cool addition.
It could be used for any kind of unwanted entry onto property that is covered by sprinkler.

Please allow motion detection to adjust brightness of Wyze bulb. Example when motion is detected change Wyze bulb x from warm medium illumination to bright white for 10 minutes.

this one was brought up during testing ( I asked) and was quite requested. so I don’t doubt it’s something being looked into.

The alarm trigger is supported now, but it doesn’t work. See:

Edit: This explains how to add a trigger for the alarm:

I second creating rules on loss of connectivity. I have one basement bulb on a switch at the top of the stairs, the rest are all manual pull strings. I want all the lights to remain in sync with the switched bulb but a bulb being offline is not recognized as Off in terms of Turn off or Off for x seconds.

I’m sure this has been asked on here, but I really need my Cam Pan to track motion ONLY when I have it set to detect motion (which is after-hours at my business). Thanks

The Wyze doorbell has a siren function, which is great! However, from what I can tell, that siren cannot be triggered using Wyze Rules. The only possible triggers are doorbell-specific, like turning the camera or notifications on/off.

What I’d like to do is be able to click a Rule saying I am on vacation and have it so that if Wyze Sense tells me any door or window is opened the siren would go off. This needs to be relatively independent of the doorbell, as I still want the doorbell sound to be a regular chime during that period.

Thanks!

It would be useful if you could (A) create mutually exclusive modes – like “Home,” “Away,” “On Vacation,” – where selecting one automatically deselects the other and (B) program Wyze Rule triggers based on the mode.

E.g., if a door opens, I want lights to turn on, but only if I have selected the “away” mode, and not if I have selected the “home” mode.

I’d imagine for each trigger there’d be a place at the end where you’d then choose if it applies for all modes or just certain modes.

Currently the spotlight can be set to always on or on when triggered if its dark. I would like to be able to set it to always turn on at night so it can act as a deterrent but the area it is covering is never dark enough for this to happen. It would be great to have it turn on with trigger no matter what the light level during certain hours. Since these cams are not on a battery, even having it always turn on with trigger can’t hurt.
I want an intruder to see my cam and leave rather than have a really nice video if him doing whatever he is there to do.
