IFTTT actions on device groups

It would be most excellent to execute IFTTT actions on device groups, rather than setting up one action for each camera. I have your cams in mulitple locations, and have quite a few of them, too. This makes creating IFTTT automations such as “when enter area, turn off notifications” and/or “when exit area, turn on notifications” a marathon of drudgery … and then it is intensely irritating to push any change to all those automations.

Agreed, just made groups and was surprised to see it wasn’t possible to create IFTTT triggers for motion and clear in a group of motion sensors.

I have a few cameras I’d like turned on and off when I’m home/ away and some I wouldn’t. It would be great to have an ifttt applet for controlling groups instead of an applet for each camera.

I suppose if you wanted to physically turn them off, you could plug each one into a smart socket and make a Scene to turn them all on and another to turn them all off.

I created a new IFTTT applet that will turn on a Wyze Bulb when your Wyze Cam detects motion. There is no way to have the action turn on a group of Wyze Bulbs. The only options are one bulb or all bulbs.

I assume you should also be able to have the motion detection work for camera groups as well.

Why should we have to buy $50 in smart plugs when Wyze could just allow groups to be controlled instead of individual cameras.

By allowing groups I could have my indoor cams turn off when I’m home and still leave my outdoor cams on more easily.
