Stand alone Wyze Sense Bridge

I don’t know if anyone else has had issues with the Bridge, but every few days, mine loses connection to two of the sensors I have been set up. Granted, my steel frame house is a factor, but one of the two sensors is through a wall less than ten feet away. Other systems have had no problem like this.

I’m not complaining by any means. You can only expect so much at this price point. However, I can’t help but think a standalone bridge might help alleviate the problem. I’d gladly pay an extra $20 or $30 for the added stability.

I’ve added your post to the #wishlist. But you may want to file a Support Request on this. There might be something support can do to improve your situation.

In this case, it might helpful to submit an App Log and/or a Firmware Log.

I wonder if a USB extension cable would work, at least that way you could move it 5 or 6 feet closer…

Will do. Thanks!

I’ll keep that in mind if I ever move the camera. Unfortunately where it is now, it wouldn’t really work for, since the two sensors that drop are in another room, and the camera they’re connected to is in the corner, as close to that room as possible. I may just end up needing to by a new Wyze Cam for that room. I suppose there’s worse problems than that.

Welcome to your new addiction. I started just getting two cameras, I now have seven, two sense kits (getting more), and 4 bulbs coming (eventually).

Yes some people are using short USB extension cable, Even some people 3 feet long to extend The signal Range

I just want to buy the existing bridge on its own. I don’t get why it’s so hard to offer that.

I don’t know why they are not selling it separately , They sell the motion sensor separately

I actually pinged support about the option to purchase individual bridges like we do with the motion sesnors. I wanted to put a bridge with each camera I bought so my sensors were always near a camera. No luck so far but hopefully someone will run this up the flagpole as it is additional revenue!

This seems like such an obvious need – my guess is that they don’t have the resources to modify the website. Wyze guys, if you’re listening, let Amazon take care of fulfillment for you, but please please please let us buy components a la carte!

Thanks!

It would be pretty cool if you could use the Wyze hub through a standard USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, and have the contact and motion sensors still be able to connect to it and function properly. Maybe by giving the hub its own ability to connect to wi-fi.

On a simaler note i found a way that a modified cable did in my case atleast completly fix the issue, a few days so far with No errors Wyzesense needs a daily reboot?

Currently you have to have a wyze camera if you want to use the wyze sensors . it would be great if you come up with a new product line that does not require wyze cam . this device will connect to sensors and also connect to wifi and reports sensors status directly to the app .

I’d like to use Wyze sensors without relying on a Wyze Cam.

A standalone Sense Bridge (with its own wifi radio) seems like a no-brainer here. I appreciate the design of the Wyze Cam-pluggable Wyze Sense, but I’d like to leverage Wyze as a home automation solution without an enabled Wyze Cam.

Thank you for your consideration and I apologize if this request is a duplicate - I couldn’t find an existing Wishlist request for this specified product.

Thanks.

I need this. Added my vote.
I use my cams outside the house but have a ton of sensors inside to manage lights. Since my bridges are out in the yard they don’t reach some upstairs rooms.

Can you build a bridge into the lights? I’ll add that as a suggestion.

Please make, for lack of a better word, a Wyze Sense Hub that would act as a Sense Bridge but not require a camera.

This would be for installation in scenarios that don’t lend themselves to Cameras such as rental properties and shared properties.
