Can Wyze security feed home automation too?

Is there any way to have the same sensors that the security system is using also feed into home automation systems like HomeKit and IfThisThenThat and Smart things and whatever Amazon is doing? (And Matter, eventually?)

For obvious reasons I’d rather not buy and maintain duplicate devices.

I know Wyze has some ability to run routines within it’s own ecosystem, but I haven’t found a clear statement of if/how we could use the event/notification feeds to trigger other folks’ hardware.

I can see that there might be security concerns, but I think they’re manageable.

Most devices have IFTTT and Alexa support, so they can be used with other devices that way. Note that not all devices have full support on these other platforms

Sounds good; is there doc somewhere about how to tie them in?

In the app settings you can link Alexa, and in ifttt search the Wyze applet

When building your IFTTT applet, it will link to your Wyze account after you add the IF trigger. Here are the Wyze IF triggers in IFTTT (note the contact sensors and motion sensors are in there):

In Alexa, you add\install the Wyze Skill and link it before building the routine. The sensors are also there as triggers.

I have found Google Home to be woefully inadequate for routines as Wyze starters don’t exist.
