In the marketing for Wyze Bulb Color, they made statements like, “Smart Features you’d Expect.”
The smart integrations for Wyze Bulb Color are so poor that they should have just made them regular, remote-controlled RGB bulbs.
I also have plain RBG bulbs from Home Depot with a very ugly, disorganized app interface, but even these crappy smart bulbs are better than Wyze as far as what I can do,… and I want to do very little. Honest.
What is the point of advertising a smart RGB bulb if I can’t make RGB rules/automations? Why is the sunset/sunrise feature so poor, boring, and uncustomizable? Is it so crazy that I expected to be able to be able to wake up to a bright purple light?
Also, why aren’t scenes voice-enabled for Alexa? I have made a variety of fun and colorful scenes, but if these are smart bulbs, why do I have to open the app, select the light, and then select the scene to activate my scenes? Wyze LITERALLY has a shortcut feature, but I guess they just didn’t think to make Scenes and Shortcuts compatible.
For a smart home brand, Wyze seems to be sleeping on a lot of very SIMPLE features and updates. Seems they’re more interested in pushing out lamps and robot cars on April Fools than like, sticking to the script.
