Color Bulb set precise color & temperature

Currently, the Wyze color bulbs use a friendly but imprecise cursor on a color wheel to select a color. Similarly, they use an imprecise cursor to select color temperature.

I would like the option to set a specific color through hex codes, HSV, or RGB values so that I can, for example, color match my favorite college football team (Clemson Orange, #F56600 and Purple, #522D80). This would be an easy, optional text input that could be placed right below the color wheel within the app. I suspect very little additional logic would need to be written.

On a more practical note, I have standard LED bulbs ranging from 2700K, 3000K, to 5000K throughout my house. I’d like to specify the precise color temperature within the Wyze app for my new bulbs, in order to match what currently exists within the room.

I could guess one reason Wyze may hesitate to do this is that they may not guarantee the bulb is well calibrated to precise inputs. I get that, really, but I’d bet a precise text input would still be more accurate than my fat finger on a color wheel.

Great idea @Jgsherw!

I would like to make sure the Color Bulbs are set to the same color when setting them up via Rules or by simply turning them on and setting the color. Being able to enter the Hex Code would help out as we can then match colors among multiple bulbs.

The other option is to display the Hex Value as you move around the color wheel so that when you set the color of another bulb you can find the same Hex Value.

Created an account just to say this. Hex codes or color temperatures would make it far easier to match bulbs.

I bought this bulb so I could set a specific white K value and you can’t. The app either needs to tell you what K value it is as you go around the white wheel or be able to enter a specific value like 5000K.

Just so you know, there are ways to do this. 1) if linked to Google home, ask google to set the light to 5000k. 2) lookup Wyze APIs on GitHub, such as: GitHub - shauntarves/wyze-sdk: A modern Python client for controlling Wyze devices. and use that to control lights.

So, the features “exist,” but Wyze developers have not made a front-end in the app to enable this sort of thing. It would take 1-2 days of development time, so I have no idea why they don’t add an option to do this through the app.

Could please add RGB or Hex value inputs for those of us that are colorblind.

I am between Wyze and Tp-Link Kasa KL135 now just because they have the temperature in their app, otherwise I’d go with Wyze all the way.
