Wyze Cam v2 or Wyze Cam Pan
Recliner chair

STEP 1 — Login to your Wyze app. For information on how to get the Wyze app click here.

STEP 2 — Set up your Wyze Cam or Wyze Cam Pan, your Wyze Bulb, and your Wyze Sense Starter Kit. (Click the product to find setup instructions.)

STEP 3 — Position the Wyze Sense contact sensor on your recliner so that when you recline, the contact sensor will separate enough to trigger an Open status.

STEP 4 — Create a new rule in the Wyze app. Select Device Trigger and set it for when the contact sensor opens.

STEP 5 — Set the Action so that the Wyze Bulb turns off. Tap Save.

STEP — Test for success!

Optional — You can do the same action with a Wyze Plug and a light of your choice instead of using a Wyze Bulb.
