RECOMMENDATION — Try to angle the sensor so that it is most likely to only notice your cat and not others roaming the home.

STEP 5 — Set the Action so that the Wyze Plug turns on. Tap Save.

STEP 6 — To get the fan to turn off after the motion detection you will want to create another rule. Select Device Trigger and set it for when the motion Has Been Clear For a specific amount of time. Our recommendation is for 3 minutes.
