Wyze shortcuts on iOS widget screen

Really would like siri shortcuts as well. This would be huge because I could use shortcuts with voice on iphone, apple watch, and homepods. I use this functionality with alarm.com to do all sorts of things. If you add this functionality, I could go all in on bulbs, plugs, and HMS. I’ve spent $1000s on z-wave devices but the annual savings on HMS would make me consider the expense to switch over

Bump because I would love a widget. Loading the app to turn on a light is the worst

Yeah, but can you use the wyze app in landscape mode? We’ve been waiting YEARS for that “feature”. Go ahead, make shortcuts, but don’t ask the app to work sideways. :neutral_face:

I appreciate the attempt for wyze to make widgets for the iOS, but it needs better functionality.
A widget is supposed to provide a limited level of control to the user for accessing quick shortcuts without opening full app (i.e. turning on/off a light or a group of lights, locking/unlocking a door, or activating color/intensity for a bulb or group of bulbs that are preset in the full app). All this without opening the full app.

For my widgets, the device widget just opens the app up. I can set it for any device I want, but it opens the full app. I appreciate the quick access to my device settings, but opening the full app takes away from the whole point of a widget.

For the device list widget, none of my device show up on the widget. I don’t know if its due to some of them being in groups or not, but even if they were all separated they would probably just open the full app.

Bump. This is a no-brainer, and it’s keeping me from making the move to Wyze for all my lighting and smart plugs. I continue using another smart-device brand due to the simple fact that their widget allows me to switch devices on/off right from the widget without opening the app. We’re running out of different ways to tell you the same thing. You’re losing potential sales here.

I don’t have an iOS version that supports Widgets, so I can’t check – but this is marked as launched, so they really can’t go further than that. If there is some extra functionality that Widgets don’t have, please submit a wishlist item to add that functionality. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Thank you for the kind response. What is the proper way to submit a wishlist item?

It’s basically just a “+ Add Topic” when in the Wishlist Forum (link below), but I think the Mods have to approve it, so there may be a delay (they approve it because so many people submit items already on the Wishlist).

Many thanks!

I added a 4-action Wyze widget to my iPad screen, but the widget selected the 4 hardware to perform the actions. One of the hardware is the camera hub, which, of corse is useless in a widget. Does anyone know how to edit the Wyze hardware listed in the widget? If I can get it right I’m going to love it!

You choose the four by arranging your device list in the main app. The four at the top of your device list are the ones which show I’m the quick access widget. Not a great method but it’s what they used.

Thanks so much. Not a great method I agree, but it’s something….

I am also interested in a quick way to use the app with less taps, I would like to see integration with Wyze on the Control Center to assess rules. Thank you!
