IFTTT has been added to Wyze Cameras! For V1 units 126.96.36.199 firmware is needed, and for V2 units 188.8.131.52 is needed. If the camera is not showing up on the list of available units please check the firmware version it is using.
List of THIS functions:
· Motion is Detected
· Sound is Detected
· Smoke Alarm is Detected
· CO Alarm is Detected
List of THAT functions:
· Enable motion detection
· Disable motion detection
· Record a short video clip (12 seconds, loaded to the AWS cloud)
· Turn on notifications
· Turn off notifications
THIS functions are best thought of as events that cause a reaction. THAT functions should be thought of as the reaction. Both THIS statements and THAT statements can interact with other services using IFTTT. A popular example of this is getting an Email that motion was detected rather than a notification.
How to setup:
Download IFTTT and setup an account if you have not already.
Tap ‘My Applets’ and the ‘+’ sign in the top right corner.
Tap ‘this’ and type Wyze into the search.
The first time selecting this you will be prompted to log into your Wyze Account, do so.
Selection ‘Motion is detected’ and then select which camera you want the motion from the drop down menu and finalize it by hitting ‘Create Trigger’.
Next, tap ‘that’ and search ‘Gmail’(for this example), you will need to link your Gmail account as well.
Select ‘Send yourself an email’, and make any changes to the contents you want sent in these emails, then select ‘Create action’.
Finally you can select if you want a notification sent to your phone when this Applet is run, and tap ‘Finish’.
Now, whenever my selected camera detects motion an email will be sent to me telling me what camera and what time the alert was made. This is subject to the same 5 minute cool down for notifications that Alert videos are set to, and does NOT share the video itself, only the details. You will still need to check the video itself through the app, under notifications. IFTTT is a fairly basic and easy to use program, but can be powerful with the right mixture of elements.
