SmartThings Integration

maybe-later

Yes Smartthings native support and google home integration would make wyzecam best cam in the market…


#62

Really hoping this becomes a reality. I have a few Pan cams and would love to integrate.


#63

Just got my first cam v2 and it’s cheap and works perfectly. Great little piece of kit for the price. If you start to integrate your products to ST then I’ll make WYZE my first port of call when looking for new devices.

The sad part is the wyze folks here don’t see what we see because they don’t use Smartthings so they have no idea the usefulness of the intergration they want to make their own so we buy theirs not ST stuff. I refuse to abandon smartthings. I have had every system out there and wasted alot of money. I’m not going to just jump to a new company that won’t open integration. Look at Iris by Lowe’s, they refused to integrate and now they are gone… poof wyze can’t even fix the forum app so you can see what you are typing. It’s covered by the keyboard and they are aware of it. Sad really.
Don’t get me wrong the cameras are cheap and they work at a decent rate but the quality of the picture is not true 720 and has alot of opportunity. Integration is the best option. The.new sensors and all are cool but it’s not gonna last. . My question is what about people who daisychain their cameras? With the sensor on the back is that still possible? Don’t look like it. Wyze people. Get your shit together. Smartthings is the best way. .

I couldn’t agree more. If Wyze tries to develop their own ecosystem they will eventually fail. I would throw out all my wyze cameras before ST which already has hundreds of sensors you can use and program for your smarthome. If Wyze wants good organic growth, a priced right outdoor camera with a ST integration and the option of personal cloud recording would be a winner.

I’m sorry could you share with us, how did you make the Wyze camera image appear on the FireTV with Alexa routines?


#67

I’ll make a separate video and thread.

I have successfully integrated Wyze with SmartThings and Alexa and my TV.

I have a motion sensor near every camera.
I use the Wyze motion zone to trigger recordings and then if ST motion sensor sees activity during the Wyze cooldown period it will record a video clip.

Enable the Wyze skill in the Amazon Alexa app.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us. While SmartThings is under the “maybe later” category, this feature is still under consideration for being added. We take the time to read all of the feedback that is posted so we can make improvements to your experience and the Wyze Cam. You are correct, if someone uses the bridge with the camera it would take up the port in the back of the camera then they would be unable to daisy-chain the cameras.

We’re sorry to hear that you are having problems posting in the forum and we’ve been working on a fix for this issue. If you are interested in helping us troubleshoot this, could you please send us a screenshot demonstrating this, the type of device you were using when it happened, and the browser you were on? We’ll get this sorted out for you as soon as we can.

SmartThings is hosting an IoT Meetup in Seattle next week. Maybe someone from the Wyze team can attend and discuss integration :grin:


#72

YES please! Smartthings integration would be amazing!


#73

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Thank you

I just created an account so that I could post into this thread specifically to say: in good faith, I am buying two cameras. I hope that you will continue to work to fulfill our requests to support SmartThings. You will only add value to your product, and the support of a very good community of customers. Thank you for your consideration.
