Outdoor plug energy monitoring improvements

The usage reporting is a primary reason I purchased the Outdoor Plug however I’m finding the implementation very lacking.

  1. Needs the ability to scroll back and forth for the measurement periods.
  2. Needs to be able to download/share a usage report or raw data.

Absolutely a need, For example, today as I type this, it is the 2nd of April. I can’t go back to March. would REALLY be nice!
Downloading the data would be really cool!

Don’t forget to up vote if you think it’s a good idea.

Not sure if the hardware is there but would like to see down to the 2W tracking range the Wemo Insight can do.

I’m finding some somewhat flakey Wifi on these outdoor plugs. Hopefully just something with firmware. 2 out of 3 of mine drop off and require reboots about once a week. No other Wyze gear in same vicinity have this issue.

It seems latest firmware update might have been pulled. I am running 1.2.0.83

Just got my plug recently to monitor usage of my pond heater.
I would love to be able to look back on history day by day. Even if the data needs to be saved directly on the phone/app I wouldn’t mind it.

Unless I’m missing something, swiping left and right to navigate previous daily/weekly usage would be nice.

Can someone tell me if they are having this problem? I use my device to operate my landscaping lights around my home. I have “shortcuts” set up to turn them on/off. The problem I’m having is that they turn back ON after a few hours by them selves after I turn them off at bedtime. I’ve tried setting up “scheduling”, but get same result…they just come on by themselves. Do I have a faulty Outdoor Plug?

We need live usage tracking and triggers based on that usage.

Realtime usage monitoring of Wyze plug outdoor

It would be helpful to have “realtime” usage monitoring of the outdoor plug.

Tuya has this on their app and it tells you exactly how many KWh, Voltage, Wattage in real time. And since their app is not compatible with the Wyze plug I can’t use it.

I second that… I get realtime with my Wemo Insights but also even my flashed ESP8266 boards I used with “Automation Manager for IOT”

I’m using the Wyze Outdoor Plug. It only shows the kWh over time.
I would like to see the instantaneous watts / amps for each plug ideally, or at least combined, in order to know if the device plugged in to the smartplug has died.
Is there a way watts/amps monitoring could be added to the firmware ?
