I want to power my camera from an outside light, but I don’t want to keep the light on 24/7. I’ve heard of people using smart bulbs so that they can keep the camera powered 24/7 but not the bulb itself. My problem is I only use “bug” (yellow) bulbs outside because regular bulbs attract an enormous amount of crawly critters.
I see that Wyze has smart bulbs, but not the bug-proof variety.
@young.clarkh Do you think something like this would work for you? Several users are going with this USB light socket to power the cams from Amazon. You can keep using your yellow bulb and power the cam at the same time.

I understand. I’m not aware of any smart bug bulbs available ATM, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some out there somewhere. It would be good #wishlist item for a future Wyze product. I searched but couldn’t find any.
