08/09/19 9:53PM – Found workaround that if users manually turned off and on the bulb it would fix the issue. Updated users on social media.
08/09/19 7:18 PM – Identified a few spikes of AWS IoT connection events for Wyze devices (especially Wyze Bulb). Devices would appear online but not respond to any commands. We suspected this was related to updates on the AWS side and high priority ticket was filed and monitored.
