I got 4 Wyze plugs so I could turn lights on and off on a schedule in our home. After getting things connected I created a schedule…
I went to add a rule and then the ‘Turns On’ option and and set my time on for 4:30pm. There was the handy ‘Add End Time’ option in the rule so I set it for 1:15am. Clicked save and thought I was good.
I wandered down the next morning and the lights were all on!!! What the heck?? I read the getting started section and forums. The forums showed there were occasionally problems with servers and such and the suggestion was to just redo the schedule. So… I did the same thing again and set up the schedule the way I did the last time.
The next morning the lights were all on! Frustration set in… After doing some more digging, with no luck, I had my ahh ha! moment. I realized that you needed to set a rule scheduling the plug/lights to turn on… and then set a second rule scheduling it to turn off. Still not sure why there is the ‘add end time’ option (which is where the confusion began) but clearly it’s not there to turn the plug off. Now I know… and hopefully this helps someone else.
