I really really hope a Wyze team member sees my following post.
I just purchased a newly built home and we have can lights everywhere, fans, fixtures, all different sorts of lights… if I were to purchase wyze bulbs for the whole house (which 50% of the bulbs aren’t compatible due to size) then it would likely be over a thousand dollars or more.
I really hope the switch that is in development isn’t to simply control the wyze bulbs as a remote but rather a replacement for a “dumb” or typical light switch.
Also, most high end switches have a screen that can be used to intercom, alexa built in which would allow her to be used in the whole house, weather, thermostat changes from any room etc. A good example of this is the Brilliant light switches (which are excessively priced). Honestly that’s a dream list version.
At this point anything affordable to be able to control and dim switches using Alexa and the wyze app would be wonderful if afford ably you priced.
I just invite wyze to consider adding other features to the switch like a screen interface for single, double, three, and four din switches like brilliant switches. You could always push software updates to them later. Heck maybe make a simple smart switch and then a different version that has all the bells and whistles.
I know that if I am so desperate for an affordable switch setup like this then hundred of thousands of people must be too. The business man in me realizes that the goal here is to sell more product and by creating a switch you’d essentially be decreasing the sale of bulbs… however, for numerous customers like myself, you’d be loosing sales from not creating a switch because it will drive consumers to another provider and we all know people like simplicity, affordability, and a one stop shop solution. I’d love to only have wyze smart products for my home and not have multiple manufacturers and all their apps that are required as well on my phone and switch back and forth between them.
