STEP 3 — In the Wyze app, create a new Rule at the top. You will want to select the Schedule rule. Select the Bulb or Bulb group you want to create the rule for.

STEP 4 — Set the action to change the Bulb or Bulb group’s brightness. For example, 50% brightness.

STEP 5 — Set the time for this rule to run. For example, at 8pm.

STEP 6 — Tap Save and repeat for each level of light dimming you want to accomplish. If you want to dim progressively, set the rules to be in 1-minute increments dimming by 10% each time. Example:

a. 8:00pm — 90%
b. 8:01pm — 80%
c. 8:02pm — 70%
d. 8:03pm — 60%
e. 8:04pm — 50%

STEP 7 (OPTIONAL) — You can use this to create a wake-up routine too, just set the times to match when your alarm is set and reverse the dimming to get brighter over time!

STEP 8 — Test for success!
