My post was accurate. In my Wyze App, during the outage, the sensors and bulbs were shoowing as connected. Yes, initially the Rules History showed nothing going on.
My Rules History is full of notifications fom my Sensor and Switches though as the day went on,
some say successful and some say failed. At no time were the triggers actually working, The Bulbs never turned on during the “outage.”
I could already control my devices via Alexa. Typically I did this by voice, just ask Alexa to turn the Bulbs on, especially those not on triggers.
I set up my trigger routines, emulating my Wyze Rules, in Alexa and they all worked fine. I then deleted the Rules from Wyze. My triggers continued to work perfectly through Alexa.
We do not understand the way the Wyze App listens to devices, nor how those Events are tracked and responded to. Alexa and Wyze can both hear an event, and respond independently. Not seeing an Event logged does not mean the device did not report the event. We can not assume that an Event must be seen in a log for a listener to know it happened. Keep in mind, Rules History only shows entries related to trigger Rules. Our devices create events regardless of their being a Rule for a trigger.
