  • Having trouble scanning your QR code? A few tips to help:
    • Hold your camera 6-10 inches away from your phone screen.
    • Slowly move the QR code on the screen away from the camera, then closer.
    • Tilt your phone screen slightly in case there's a glare.
    • Turn your phone upside down. 
    • If you're on iOS, turn off "Invert Colors".
    • Make sure the QR code isn't distorted.
      • If you have an older device, the screen may be too small. Try a different device.
      • If your screen is cracked or scratched, the code may be distorted. Try a different device.
      • If you're using a beta version of the Wyze app, make sure the cursor is not on the QR code.
