Change Doorbell push button blue LED color

When it is dark outside, the blue LED from the push button on the front of the doorbell cam is very bright. Anyone walking by can can clearly see the blue shine and I don’t care to draw attention to my doorbell camera.

Personally, I would like to see the option of having the LED either turn off or change it to a different color like white. Please vote for this idea if you agree.

Great idea @scsi050!

Just got my preordered doorbell camera installed and working, Install was fairly easy, overall happy with the camera especially given its price tag. My main issue with it is the bright blue status light - the light is visible from probably 100 yards away and easily visibly from the road as people drive by. It’s one thing to see a doorbell camera as you approach the steps or the front door, but signaling to everyone driving by that you have a doorbell camera just invites problems in my opinion.

I’m hoping the brightness can be adjusted or the light just turned off completely, and I will wait for that update or for Wyze to acknowledge and review. In the end I cannot keep this camera installed long term as it is. besides the security threat it poses, the aesthetics are also an issue. You cant look at the front of my house without your eyes being drawn to the blue beacon next to my door!

I disagree. I like that the button is illuminated so bright. It first brings b attention to the porch pirates that you have a VDB and the other people know where to press

I agree. In the dark this really lights up and clashes with other lighting on the outside of our house. A way to significantly lower the button light brightness, turn it off at night, or turn it off altogether would be nice.

Could be programmed so it comes on only when the white light comes on

Please make it dimmable, please. My HOA might ban wyze doorbell because of this way too bright blue LED light!

I think having the choice of color sachems would be handy, I want people to know they are on camera, but that bright blue beacon can be seen from way to far away for my taste. The biggest issue with changing the blue is likely troubleshooting, as it’s the bell color that is a big part of what indicates the type of issue one may be having.

I wish it operated just like the v2 or pan cams status light. I want it to blink and show it’s status if there is an issue. But if all is good, turn off.

Another reason to hate HOA’s , I would recommend until this is worked out to make a sticky difuser out of some semi transparent plastic tape, it should soften the light and not interfere with the button and not make it ‘uggly’ from the street.

The other day my internet service went out while I was away from home, and I returned to an ultrabright light flashing between blue and orange repeatedly, visible from probably 200 yards away… Please correct this!

Just installed … really hate the blue light. No idea why they didn’t have a setting to turn it off just like the Wyze logo. Please fix it!

I would be happy with just being able to turn the blue light off. I like that it lights up when motion in detected but would like it off in stand by.

This feature is a no brainer for the next firmware update! Please Wyze Team! This is my only « cons » on the doorbell so far!!
