How do I setup geofencing?

support

#1

Hello. I just purchased a Wyze Cam v2 (Firmware 4.9.2.42) and iOS App (1.5.52). Is there a way to setup Gefencing? I don’t want to be plagued by alerts unless I’m away from home. And even then, I would like to have the option to “pause” those alerts if I get too many false triggers (ie - family staying over)

I’ve added your request to add geofencing natively within the Wyze app to Wyze’s feature request tracker.

In the mean time, this can be accomplished with IFTTT. A little search of the forum will reveal instructions.

To pause and un-pause alerts, I’d suggest you create shortcut buttons at the top of the Devices page of the app. On to turn off alerts and one to turn on. Or alternatively, one to turn off notifications and one to turn on (leaving the alert clips being recorded). Search “shortcut” or “task” in the Support link at the top of this page for instructions.

It would be VERY nice if we could have multiple users geofencing within the app. In my research, it appears the only way to currently accomplish this is using a combination of IFTTT and Stringify. Stringify to handle the multiple users location variables and IFTTT to talk to Wyze notification settings. Unfortunately, Stringify’s location service appears to be VERY buggy and unreliable with Android 8. There appears to be no simple answer to solving the multiple users geofencing for Wyze notifications- I am hoping you can help. Here is my wish in short- please make wyze allow notifications when BOTH my wife and myself are gone, but disable notifications when EITHER of us are at home. Thank you! And I love your product!

Some people are using Life360 in combination with IFTTT to accomplish this.
