Ring doorbell and Wyze bulbs for front porch light

I added an Alexa routine for the Ring doorbell that turns the Wyze bulb. but, again, the challenge is turning it off after 10 or 15 minutes. I don’t see how to add that second Alexa Routine action?

I can’t find the way to make the IFTTT recipe public.
I made the Wyze app have the rule that says when bulb is turned on, wait 15 minutes, then turn it off.

Great!! Thanks for the quick reply.

Thanks. I just set it as you recommended within the Wyze app. Doesn’t seem to need a separate IFTTT filter — I hope!

Since Alexa didn’t allow for a 10 min shutoff after Ring motion or bell push, I used a Wyze app Rule that turns the front porch Wyze bulb off after 10 mins. Yipee!!!

All,

I have been forced to use Alexa for a lot of my rules. There is an option you can use, it is called wait. You add a wait (of whatever time you desire,) and then complete whatever actions you want.

I use this a lot. When motion is detected turn on lights. Wait 10 minutes, then turn off lights.

It is a shame that I cannot add waits in the WYZE app. By far on of the biggest disappointments in their app. Why should I have to use third party programs and devices to control these products?

Actually it does, Use the “wait” function. I’ll PM you a photo of my Ring motion routine setup…

Can you send it to me as well? I cant get the lights to turn off after a period of time I tried the wwayze trigger option of turning off after a period Of time but it’s not working

I’ll try. I can’t seem to upload photos on my phone right now. Not sure why…

I did it adding a wyze motion sensor pointing to my door and adding a rule that between 5pm and 6 am (not enough sunlight) when the sensor detects motion it turns on the 2 wyze bulbs in my porch and turns off when the motion “Clears” (no motion for 1 minute I guess) and it works perfectly.

"* I have all off my outside lights (all Wemo smart switches) turn on for 5 minutes between 11:30-5am when my Ring detects motion.
How is this helpful on a Wyze bulb thread?

You don’t think its helpful? Let me help you. It’s called an, example. See because that particular routine doesn’t use a Wyze product, I used what I had in that instance. See I figured if I said. “I have all my outside lights (all Yellow Banana peels) turn on for 5 minutes…
…” then it wouldn’t have made much sense.
