Wyze shortcuts on iOS widget screen

Since I use the iOS widget screen to turn most of my home automation and security system on/off, I’d love to be able to do this with Wyze as well. Would be great if the Wyze shortcuts could be displayed on the widget screen.

[Moderator Note] Although similar to Siri Shortcuts, this request does not involve the Siri Shortcuts app and likely easier to implement. Therefore it is listed as a separate topic here in #roadmap.

Can you please make shortcuts be iOS widgets (IFTTT has that…)? Also, connect WyzeCam actions with the new iOS Shortcuts app?

It would be a great feature, it can save a few seconds for an action that is likely to happen very frequently.
If you could add a thumbnail preview, it would be even better.
If you could add live stream (not sure if it is even possible in a widget) it would be totally awesome.

I would like the ability to see my cameras when you scroll all the way to the left on a iPhone you have widgets. I think users would enjoy not having to go to the app to view their cameras. I’m also for limitations that we can set on Wyze cam pan to stop it from looking at light against a wall at night.

I would like to see both shortcuts and events in iOS widgets.

WOULD LOVE THIS - controlling lights via widget is so much more convenient

Wholeheartedly agree! I use this same feature with Smart Life Plugs and it’s so nice. Honestly it’s the only thing keeping me from investing in Wyze plugs.

YES! Would love a widget similar to my Smart Life widget that lets me toggle my smart plugs and scenes on/off.

Would love this feature! If HomeKit could be integrated that would be awesome but shortcuts on iOS would be a nice second.

Would love a Wyze Camera Widget on iOS … Similar to how Kasa has theirs set up. Please! :slight_smile:

iPhone widget to turn on/off camera, lights and switches without opening the app

I am using the Wyze camera and app with an iPad to view my front poach. I found that it’s a little time consuming to be reading in the kindle app when someone knocks on the door and then clicking the Wyze icon, selecting the right camera (I have several) to see who is knocking. It would be great if I could find a way to view a specific camera with a single click. Sort of like when I save a shortcut to a specific word processing file on the desktop that takes me directly to that document.

Just wanted to say that I love your products. Especially like the Wyze bulb and how you can use contact sensors and motion sensors to turn them on and off.

With that said I did have a question. Are there any plans to add widgets from the app so we can turn on or off the bulbs or plugs without actually opening the app?

The widget screen for the bulbs I have from another manufacture is the single most used widget I have. I have over 45 bulbs and 3 pages of scenes and shortcuts in the lock screen widget. I would consider changing the bulbs to wyze bulbs f I could get quick and easy access to scenes without opening apps or talking to Alexa.

Couldn’t agree with this more. My Smart Life widget is my most used one. Wish they would add this.

Yes, I want that too, I won’t have to share my location with other like Life360 to activate motion detection when I leave. it would be easy to setup in shortcuts, and we could make it do all sort of things. All kind of app have add action in iOS Shortcut. I currently have 17 app on my phone that shows up in shortcuts App action list. Go for 18 :slight_smile:

It would be very helpful if one could access the action shortcuts (or at least turn the camera on/off) using the iPhone’s force touch feature, without having to open the app
