Wyze Smart Button

would this work for example to turn on the sirens on all the v3’s if you pushed the button once and turned them all off if you push it again? (or something like that). I have home monitoring.

If so, I believe i have some V1 sensors that I never used and could convert into a button. Or would they need to be V2 since that what home monitoring uses?

To use the v1 sensor you need the v2 camera with v1 bridge.
I think it won’t work the way you want. But you can test it before committing to the modification, just use magnet to open and close as if it’s a button.

Actually I think it might work …

A modified Wyze switch would work. Have a cord and plug connected Wyze switch mounted in a plastic box. The box could set on a night table, and be able to control other Wyze devices. For example, a long press would turn on all lights. Often the light switch in on the other side of the room, and might not have a neutral wire in the box. A cord and plug connected would have the neutral.

So true. I have used a modified contact switch, but that was a single press. I have also made a Garage Door Opener by leveraging a Wyze Plug and a Relay. I decided no to use the wall switch since my wife wanted something small and not stand out.

But I could see how this would work as well. Would be interested in any pictures you may have as others may be interested as well.

you can always open it up and solder it but I have gotten pretty good feedback on this.

Yea, those are what I modeled mine after. But instead of a magnet, I was using a Mini momentary switch wired to the board and casing. Unfortunately, I need, single and double press and hold. I have them in my main bedroom for my wife to use and turn off the lamp and dim my lamp. then I use mine to turn both off. Double press turns both lights off and the hold action turns them on.

The Wyze Switch would be perfect. but bigger than I wanted

I’d love a Wyze smart button to have by mine and my husbands side of the bed to turn our lights on and off without going to the app or stumbling in the dark to find the light switch.

I’d also love a Wyze panic button that would work with our home security system!

This seems like low-hanging fruit to me since the Wyze Switch exists and the Wyze Floor Lamp has a wireless button. I’d love a portable, wifi-connected button that could toggle other Wyze products!

I agree, that lamp button is awesome. It would be cool if it could be extended beyond the phone.

Would you please create a small wireless remote to control a Wyze Plug? Sometimes I need to activate it without waking people, so I can’t use my phone. A remote would let other people control the outlet too, to whom i don’t give access to the app.

For now, you can always use the button on the side of the Plug.

A Wyze Anything Button would be a very good idea.

I have something similar, that I want to share. It cost more than a Wyze Button does, because it some what needs some infrastructure to work. Hubs.

I use the Flic.io Buttons. They are not cheap, but they work great. A lot of flexibility with a lot of products. I route my Flic executions through Alexa.

I also have some Sonoff RF WiFi power switches and wall switches. These work great. They too need the RF Bridge between their 8 button keypad and the switches. Look on Amazon, “Basic RFR2” and T2US series wall switches.

I have done the same. I have one button on each night stand which controls Wyze bulbs via Alexa.

Great product, but would love a Wyze Button as well

i wish they would create a generic remote with programable buttons labeled 0-9 that you can setup in the app. it would use wifi or bluetooth and be set up much like the contact sensor using ifttt to: turn on lights, lock the door, start camera recording, etc…

i am imagining a device that looks almost identical to the wyze keypad except you can assign either individual buttons or codes to functions that you can set-up in the app.

i hope i am making any sense, not good at writing, please reply if clarification is needed or if you have any better ideas.

there are some posts that were somewhat similar but too device specific, their-for i created this post, hopefully other people will be more for this variation of a remote idea. Thanks

This is a really nice idea! I personally would love the simple “single button” concept that is mostly discussed in this thread but your idea is also great and shows the power of what the Wyze ecosystem could be expanded to accomplish if the company considered it.

so, is this not happening? I really thought the Wyze Switch would solve this problem, but then decided not to offer 3-way/4-way support. I would really hate to jump ship, but it’s 2022 and I still cannot physically and manually turn on the bulbs. This has become a problem because the sensors are becoming waaaay slow to respond.

I mean, isn’t it like 99% of houses have 3-way switches? At least it is here in WA. And Wyze is in Kirkland. Am I to guess that the Wyze team are actually not using Wyze at home, because this is a very common issue that I’d be surprised they never encounter enough to address.

Wyze remote

Ok. This needs to be used with a bunch of other stuff with Wyze too. Most of us have Wyze bulbs/lights/others… so we should have a remote to go with it. Press a curtain button and it does something like turn on light bulb, or turn camera siren on. And you can label it. And it should have a wall mount.
