Hi, Bam. I’m talking about the light bulbs only in this case, and they’re in a fixture on the ceiling. I have not investigated the plugs yet.
I realize with any device like this if you de-energize the supply to it, not only with the light or device (in the case of the plug product) go out, but the remote control is now disabled.
I’m after the case of someone having the power on, not turned off by the physical switch up line, but the light is off, so energized, but off. I want to just walk to the physical switch and do something to make it come on. It has power, but the Wyze system has ordered it to be off.
That is the problem with this system that there is only the app to interact with the bulb, or such as the google home automation.
Older automation systems had wireless switches you could integrate in, and be able to turn on and off lights remotely as well as using computers (old pre cell phone app), to control them.
This system is nice but takes away the simple approach when the light is in the off state, but still has power.
