Wyze shortcuts on iOS widget screen

so much this. It’s been over a year since this feature was requested. Let’s do this Wyze!!

Please bless.

I just bought a 4-pack of Wyze bulbs, after using regular LEDs with smart switches (controlled with SmartLife), and the ONLY thing that’s missing with the Wyze bulbs/app is the ability to control them via Siri, and an iOS widget to conveniently control them…

I think it would be a WYZE (sorry, I had to🤣) decision for them to add this support to the iOS app, especially considering that most other smart home apps—like SmartLife—have implemented these things, making it just that much more convenient to control our smart devices.

It’d be really convenient if I was able to turn on/off notifications via home screen quick actions instead of having to open the app and wait on it to load to toggle the bell on the top of the screen.

I’d like to have a widget option that creates a widget for different device types ( outlets, bulbs, locks etc) so that I can quickly access without having to launch the app first.
Thank you kindly

Widget to immediately access created shortcuts is a crucial feature that ALL smart home companies have. Why are you still lacking this in 2020, Wyze? Had I known this was missing, I NEVER would have moved to Wyze. Instead we have to tap on the app, wait for the welcome screen to pass, then wait for the shortcuts to load up, and then finally tap on the shortcut. Why not skip all your Wyze-guy nonesense have an immediately accessible widget? Please do not ignore your faithful customers.

I have an IPhone and feel having the ability to add a Wyze widget to my widget screen would make life a lot easier. I could scroll to my widgets screen to see the current camera scan and be able to use/see my Wyze Lock (locking and unlocking from the widget screen would save A LOT of time!)

Widgets Please!!!

I would be over the moon with a widget for my Wyze products that would allow me some basic controls or views from the Home Screen. I would prefer quick access to certain items. This might already be a thing for Android I do no know. If it isn’t it should be.

  1. Turning switches or lights on or off.
  2. Quick controls for cameras.
  3. Last Scale weigh in and notifications for heart rate.
  4. Soon to be thermostat controls!

If you are all about making life easier this would do it partially on the software side. The app itself could have been thought out a bit better. Finding a way to bring my important controls up front would make the app less cumbersome.

Thanks for the product and support,

Andy

How has this been requested for almost 2 years and still not been implemented? I want this solely because I want a “unlock” widget button because the auto unlock takes FOREVER if it even ever happens. I really like the Wyze lock but it is SOOOO freaking frustrating. When I park I want my door unlocked by the time I get to my front door. I dont want to stand at my door for more than a minute and wait for the thing to unlock.

Give this man a gold star for a beautiful example :ok_hand::raised_hands: I’d love to see something like this!

Quick access widget would really make the experience of using Wyze complete. It would elevate to match the competition as well. Sure has our vote! Thank you!

Yes iOS Shortcut/Siri integration in general would save me a lot of time. I have a few devices I turn on/off several times a day but they don’t really fit to a particular schedule, it just depends on when I need it. Anything to save time to do this would be helpful.

I agree. This isn’t hard to implement. I got a V3 and would like a widget so I can tap on it when someone is at the front door. Finding the app, opening it, finding the camera, tapping on it, waiting for it to load, it takes an eternity. I want a button on my home screen which just launches the viewer for just that camera.

I agree with @Michi. It takes forever just to turn a light on and off. I’m sadly removing my Wyze bulb in my baby’s nursery to replace it with a traditional, boring bulb because it takes way too long just to turn her light on and off for nap times. A simple widget would fix this and make me want to get more bulbs and plugs in my house.

I just got a camera. I thought this was a thing already. Would be awesome to have! Thanks :slight_smile:

I would also love the ability to unlock my door at the push of a button when the Bluetooth feature has failed to activate. Opening the app, then the lock, then pressing the button is additional steps I would love to reduce. Starting my new vacuum from a widget would be appreciated as well.

Wants a widget for iOS devices. Where you can view the steam live in the widget without even opening the app.

I really wish the ios widget did more than just act as a quicker way to access specific devices in the app. Yes, it’s nice to be able to launch the app to a specific device, but It would be great to be able to turn a device/bulb on/off as well.

Agreed! Really appreciate that there is at least something there, but literally the ONLY thing holding me back from investing in devices like plugs and bulbs and not buying different brands that are slightly less quality IS the widget that comes with apps like Smart Life.

I’m telling you, as soon as a true widget that doesn’t require you to control devices by actually going into the app is made available from Wyze, I will be stocking up on WYZE bulbs and plugs that same day!
