Wyze Tip: Color Light Notifier (a.k.a Red Light, Green Light)

Learn how to automate your Wyze Bulb Color to create powerful visual notifications when motion is detected outside your home. Or shine a light on important reminders (or friendly warnings) like when Mom comes home from work or guests arrive at the door. 

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Skill Level: Beginner


-Wyze Bulb Color(s)

  3. Create your device trigger within the Wyze app. 
    1. Tap Home > + plus sign on the top left >Add Rule > Device Trigger > + plus sign > Set Name (ex. Red Light, or Back Door Motion)

  5. Tap Save for each color of Wyze Bulb Color you want to accomplish.

*But wait!* Make sure you synchronize your routines.

Don't forget to bookend automations with the opposite action. In other words, what gets told to turn on, must also know when to turn off. What goes up, must come down. You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out. You put your right foot in...and you shake it all about.


*Chef’s Note* Add Cam Plus to your Wyze Cam to get AI smart alerts for packages, pets, people, or vehicles to level up your detection game. If you’re feeling it, Cam Plus Pro even lets you recognize the specific faces of your friends with Friendly Faces & trigger specific colors for your lights based on who is detected.
