I just installed 6 Wyze Color Bulbs in my kitchen which is controlled by your standard light switch. After setting them all up and updating their firmware, I shut the lights off and left the room. It’s been about an hour and I came back into the kitchen, hit the lights and… Nothing. Then, a few moments later, green pulsating lights from them all. I check the Wyze and Google Home app and all of the lights have lost connection. I went back and double checked the FAQ and description of the lights on the product page and don’t see any mention of these lights requiring power 24x7.
Eventually the lights returned to their programmed color, however, they are 100% unresponsive in the Wyze and Google Home apps (I can turn them off, turn them on, change their color in the apps and nothing happens, physically).
I attempted to re-create the scenario and was successful. It appears that my Wyze Color Bulbs are losing all programming after an extended loss of power.
Is this something that plans on being fixed very, very soon or do I need to start an RMA, because I can’t have this.
Update: I reserved IP addresses for them thinking this might help solve the issue. After confirming in the app that they had the correctly assigned IP addresses I tested again with the same fading green result.
