I just installed my new Wyze motion sensor. Seems to work great, but…
I want to do something I thought would be straightforward - turn on a light when someone enters a darkened room. I set up the sensor to control a lamp in my living room - turn on the lamp when the sensor detects motion, and turn it off when the sensor clears. The lamp is plugged into a TP-Link Kasa Wi-Fi smart plug.
That part was easy, using IFTTT to link the Wyze motion sensor to the Kasa smart plug.
What I can’t figure out is how to have the sensor turn on the lamp only at night, when the room is dark (no need to turn it on during the day). Since the sensor itself has no light sensor built into it, that means I need to use a time-of-day schedule (ideally “dusk-to-dawn” but I can live with fixed staart-stop times) to control when the sensor should turn on the lamp.
But I can’t figure out how to apply two triggers (the sensor and a schedule) in IFTTT to trigger an action (turn on my lamp).
If I were to replace my light bulb with a Wyze bulb, would I then be able to do what I want via a rule directly in the Wyze app (and eliminate IFTTT)?
If anyone has done this before, or can offer advice on how I can do this, I’d appreciate it,
