New Wyze Door contacts and Motion Sensors


#61

So...depending on how up to date Wyze is keeping their Alexa Skill... It might be possible to have the Wyze Contact and Motion sensors trigger an Alexa Routine, which in turn could modify a virtual device in Hubitat. Some just needs to see if Wyze has exposed these new Contact and Motion sensors to Alexa via the Wyze Skill.

I do this same exact thing for my Ring Doorbell. I use a Virtual Motion/Switch combination driver which allows the Alexa Routine to 'turn on' my virtual motion sensor. That same driver also automatically 'turns off' my virtual motion sensor after a few seconds, to make sure Alexa can turn it back on again later.

That at least sounds promising...

Thanks for the update!

I just got my Wyze Contact Sensor working in Hubitat with IFTT and it does a good job. I create a Vitual Switch and create a trigger in IFTT and got it to work. It does a good job.

Can I ask, what sort of latency are you experiencing??

@njanda I have not testing it and I would say three or four second? I started to count and got to three. I'm just testing it with a office light turning off/on.

Ok, thx. That’s not too bad
