Stand alone Wyze Sense Bridge

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.

Just setup my first cam and Sense package, the motion sensor and contacts will not connect from one end of the house to the other. I dont reallllly have a need for a camera on the other end of the house, but that would be the only way to get a bridge signal down that way. Would love the option for a stand alone bridge to just plug in without a camera.

Hi OhioTim,

There is a #wishlist item you can vote for to encourage Wyze to look at that. It’s here: Stand alone Wyze Sense Bridge

Yes, my comment is in that thread… which you replied to, and which your link takes you right back to my comment… Not sure what your getting at.

That’s odd, I thought I was replying to a comment in another thread on the same topic. Sorry for the confusion I got my wires crossed somewhere.

Make a bridge that simply plugged into a wall outlet and not into the back of a cam. One of my bridges I have is plugged into a cam the is just looking at a blank wall - I have no use for a cam at that location but have to have one there just for the bridge.
Would make for less clutter.

Wyze makes more money selling the basic kit with the bridge and two switches with bridge. But, that’s fairly cheap - but would certainly be better for those of us who already own plenty of their gadgets!

Just wanted to let you all know that we are working on a stand alone bridge. Not quite ready to give out too many details (cause they’re still changing), but the high-level goal is to build a Sense Bridge that can plug directly into an outlet.

Thanks for the update Mike. Any need for a beta tester? :0)

I’ll grab one of these as soon as it’s available. Been having too many problems with a camera that’s right on the edge of the range for stuff across the house.

Thanks for the update, looking forward to it.

A common issue I have is that many Wyze contact and motion sensors are slightly away from the Wyze cam that’s connected to the bridge. It’ll be good for Wyze to make a hub that can directly talk to WiFi instead of using the camera.
