Wyze Lock: Trash Mode Button

I think it would be nice to have a physical button on the lock that would initiate Trash Mode.

I love the idea of the Trash Mode feature but haven’t been able to get it to work well. I essentially have to flip my lock 10+ times quickly until it beeps. I think it would be nice when carrying things out the door to be able to hit a quick button and know that when you come back for the second load of things that it hasn’t locked on you.

My apartment door doesn’t stay open, instead it swings itself shut which makes it hard to use the auto-lock feature when I’m trying to make two trips or take the garbage out.

In my opinion they should just make a widget which is another wish list that you can vote on and in the widget you could enable what devices you want to be able to turn on and off and which ones you don’t. And trash mode could be one of those things instead of having a whole separate thing for trash mode.

Which by the way I think it’s a completely ridiculous feature because I don’t know why people can’t just leave your door unlocked for 15 seconds while you run to the curb or leave your door popped open for 15 seconds while you’re out but that’s just me that’s my opinion. If it works for some people and they like it great!

I’d be happy with even a rule/shortcut to initiate trash mode

Did you read my whole post? I want the door to stay unlocked, just not open. I’m in an apartment, my door doesn’t stay open, it’s not 3 feet to my car, I have to walk down the stairs and depending on how good of a spot I could get I may have to walk a bit to my car, that would freeze my place out. Plus, when I take the trash out it is even farther as I have to walk about a block to the dumpster.

If they also made it something Alexa could do that would be awesome as well. I could tell Alexa I’m taking out the trash and that would trigger a routine that sets trash mode. Even easier than hitting a button. But I like the button for people who don’t know the system as well, say a friend who comes over, they may not remember what to say to Alexa but they would be able to remember to hit the button to get back in, haha.

It would require an entirely new design of the lock I don’t see that happening. Especially with the keypad coming out

I guess it’s not a big deal for me to throw a set of keys in my pocket when I walk out the door. Or my phone. I don’t need to go through a 30 second procedure to make my door work so that I can get back in. But like I said hey if some people want it it’s another feature great

yeah being able to initiate via Alexa would be cool too…I don’t see them changing the design for a button…so having a software option would be ideal.

I also have issues with putting the lock in “trash mode”. Usually have to turn the lock 5-6 times. An Alexa command would be so nice!
