Vacation Mode for the bulbs. It would be nice if the user could choose the time(s) that the bulbs on vacation mode go on. Not just 6-9am and 6-11pm. Additionally, it seems that all the bulbs go and off at the same time which doesn’t make one believe that someone is home since they are in different rooms all over the house.
[Mod Edit]:Title modified to be more inclusive and to enhance search clarity.
Will only work between 6am-9am and from 6pm-11pm local time
Except, I’m up at 4am, not 6am on work days. And if the idea is to to make it looks like you’re home, then that’s really not doing that.
And turning the lights on at 6am when it is already daylight outside - as it has been - how does that make any sense? Maybe after we’re not in Daylight Saving Time - in about three months.
So the “vacation mode timeframe” is not within the hours many people need.
Thankfully, while I am sitting here in a cabin with a beautiful (albeit rainy at the moment) view of Mt. Le Conte in the Smokey Mountains, I still have 3 Hue bulbs at home set for routines that actually match my normal schedule when I’m home,
100 % Correct - The vacation mode needs to be corrected.
Vacation mode - **NOT YET ADJUSTABLE **(that’s a hint) allows too much on time - UP TO 8 hours !!!
6-11 pm plus 6-9 am equals 8 hours - many of those hours are during full daylight
Please reduce max time ----- ? 4 hours or better yet allow on time to be user adjustable
+1 … should by like other automated bulbs like LIFX where you can set clock for ON and OFF.
Also, rather than getting into the bulb business and the various bulb derivatives (60W / 80W / 100W / etc), perhaps better to build bulb socket stub that controls whatever bulb gets plugged in and really focus on the WIFI connectivity. Let’s user customize as they need.
Is Product Management at Wyze listening? There is no good explanation not to have the option for Either/Or 6-9AM and 6-11PM. In it’s current form, the vacation mode option is wasteful (energy) and not useable for the vast majority of users. Why hasn’t Wyze implemented this?
Instead of the app’s vacation mode being active from 6-11 p.m., any chance you can expand the end time until 6 a.m.? Or maybe even use sunset and sunrise? There have been car thefts in my neighborhood, and my camera’s motion detection was triggered after 11 p.m.
