Am I the only one who thinks the WYZE app (for Android) could use substantial improvement? I find it unfriendly, unhelpful, and confusing. Some background: I bought four bulbs and installed the first one (front porch light). Everything worked just fine. I even figured out how to set a schedule (although I can’t seem to do it anymore (that’s the first area that needs to be improved in my opinion).
Then I installed a second bulb (over the garage doors) and everything went to sh*t. Bottom line is this: I can’t get both bulbs to function correctly. One is invariably offline. And yes, I have tried rebooting and re-installing both of them countless times.
So on the main screen of the app it says WYZE at the top, Then a circle with three dots, and then the list of my bulbs, listed correctly by name. Next to the first bulb (“Garage”) it says “On” in a circle. But next to the second bulb (“Front Porch”) there’s just a little cloud with a line through. You cannot click on the cloud for more information.
If I touch the main area for Front Porch it brings me to the screen that really needs the most improvement in my opinion. I see the sliders for color and intensity, with “Add scene” below them. But there’s no mention of the problem nor any advice to remedy the situation. It just says “Device offline.” Thanks - I already figured that out. The only thing to click on is the Settings icon. I see the tab for Schedules and Automations and there are two separate schedules listed there but with NO INDICATION OF WHICH IF ANY ARE IN USE FOR THAT BULB. Sorry for shouting; that was for emphasis only.
There needs to be some kind of indication as to which schedule (if any) is currently in effect.
The only advice I ever get from WYZE support is to reboot the bulb and try again. I’ve done that but it never seems to work. Thanks in advance for any advice.
