Timing Schedules Do No Work
December 14, 2019
I purchased five of these bulbs, one as a single and a four pack. Installation was straightforward and the app did control on/off sequences for the bulbs. HOWEVER, settings schedules was a total fail. I wanted to get rid of timers on different lamps and just control the lamp schedules through the app. I have Wyze cameras so this seemed like a logical move to just use one app for everything. Schedules did not work after multiple attempts, bulb removals and resets.
Lots of other users have reported the same problem. Very frustrating. It's just a light bulb so how long do you try to get it to work??
Here is the web site description:
Set any mood with Wyze Bulb’s tunable white color temperature. Use warm white (2700k) to relax in the evening and daylight (6500k) to wake up with morning coffee.
9.5-watt LED bulb (60-watt equivalent) produces up to 800 lumens and can be dimmed using voice control or the Wyze App (do not use with dimmer switches)
No Hub Required. Wyze Bulb connects directly to your 2.4GHz WiFi network (does not support 5GHz Wi-Fi) and the free Wyze app for a quick and easy setup
Automate your lights with Wyze Sense (sold separately): Wyze Sense’s contact and motion sensors allow you to control your lights based on motion or opening/closing of a door so they’re on when you need them and off when you don’t. You can also integrate with IFTTT to link Wyze Bulbs to the rest of your smart home devices.
Make it look like someone’s home: Vacation mode turns lights on/off on a variable schedule while you’re away.
Set Schedules: Set your Wyze Bulbs to turn on and off on a custom schedule so you never come home to a dark house.
Group Control: Add multiple bulbs to a group and control them all simultaneously or use Shortcuts to control all your Wyze devices at the same time.
The set schedules doesn't work, nor does group schedules. They turned on at the right time but never turned off. I have returned these bulbs because the web site description is not accurate.
