Are you one of those people who turns the light off then runs down the hallway to jump in bed? Luckily, smart technology makes it easy to turn our lights off from the comfort of our bed, but having a night light around still helps us feel safe in the dark. This formula will walk you through how to set up your Wyze Bulb with a Wyze Plug to turn on your night light anytime your lights go off for the evening.
