In the meantime, here is a write-up for a little craft project I whiped up.
Here is how I “diluted” down the status light because it’s sooo darn bright. Starting with the control. Wyze VDB.
I tested placing a vinyl patch over the button. Tried white colored cricut brand and some other brands, but went with some pro car "carbon fiber " patterned vinyl (for a little tactile touch pan) I had. It covers the button nicely, but there is still some bleed through from the status light. Ok, actually a lot of bleed through
Next up picked a piece of black vinyl and the button light did not bleed through at all (other than some minor “glow” around the outside edge of the vinyl patch. Buuut I actually wanted to see the status of the camera, I didn’t want to cover it up fully. I cut out a small hole in the middle so the status light would still show through.
Now assemble time. Black patch goes first, white patch goes next to make the doorbell look white on the outside, then added a Wyze colored circle (for now) to be a visual “button”. Mounted and joy! It hasn’t been night yet so I can’t see what the status light will look like for now, but when I cup the doorbell it looks pretty dim which is right I think where I want it. May play around with the circle color, black maybe to match the lens? But I’ll keep it Wyze blue for now. Proof of concept… success.
