What are Preset Rules?

Preset Rules are some of our most-popular Rules, already set up in the Wyze app for you to use with just a few taps. Instead of manually creating a rule, select a Preset Rule and customize it before tapping Save

Some Preset Rules are:

Turn alerts off at night Schedule App notifications turn off from sunset to sunrise. Any Wyze device
