I’m not able to turn the bulbs on and off by schedule using the shortcuts method.
I received my bulbs the other day and set three of them up and can control them with the Wyze App. I also linked them to Alexa (only after disabling and then enabling the Wyze skill in Alexa). However when I created a shortcut (scheduled) to turn all three of them on and another to turn all three of them off it did execute. Each shortcut had 3 actions either turning on or off each of the bulbs. (I also put the bulbs in a group but did not use this for the shortcut.) When I turn off automation and just select the shortcut they work–only the scheduling feature does not seem to work.
I have since created two new shortcuts referencing the bulb group so that each shortcut contains a single action turning on or off the group. We’ll see later if this works.
Anyone try this: no sensors, multiple actions on a bulb in a scheduled shortcut? Thanks.
Edit: Putting all the bulbs into a group and scheduling the group for a time (1 action) seemed to work for turning them on. Only gliche, they came on exactly 2 minutes late (timestamp of video versus scheduled time). We’ll see if they go off as scheduled (or two minutes past).
Edit: They turned off as a group but this time 1’:45" after the scheduled time again based on the camera time verus scheduled time. The camera time seems to be accurate to 1 second. Could all of this be caused by back end delays in sending out the commands?
Edit: Bulbs turned off after only a minute this time. Suggests a backend backlog. I changed my times to be off hour marks. Will see if this makes a difference.
Edit: Moved the scheduling times to 7 minutes after the hour. Only a 12 second delay was experienced.
