SERVICE STATUS UPDATE
10/8/21 5:00 PM PT - We're seeing a drop in the success rate of Cam Plus Event playback. While the strong majority of videos are playing as expected, we take this seriously and are working with our partners to investigate why this drop has occurred and repair it. Thank you for your patience.
10/5/21 7:07 PM PT - This issue is now resolved! Please try to power cycle your Wyze Cam and then connect again. If you continue to have any difficulty, please reach out to Wyze Customer Support so we can help out. Thank you!
5:49 PM PT - We are working with our live stream provider on this fix. Our current expectation is that a cloud change will be enough to resolve this issue but we'll keep you posted. Thanks for your patience!
4:20 PM PT - We have isolated the problem to cameras that haven't been connected previously or have been reset. We are continuing to work on this and apologize for any inconvenience you may have had.
12:10 PM PT - We are looking into reports of Wyze Cams disconnecting today. If you have experienced this, please contact Wyze Customer Support.
9/8/21 3:00 PM PT - We have released an iOS app update to help with this. Please download 2.24.36 from the Apple App Store if you've been having trouble setting up your Wyze Cam Outdoor Base Station. If you still have trouble after the update, please contact Wyze Customer Support. Thanks for your patience!
9/7/21 11:00 AM PT - We are working on an app update that will fix a setup issue for Wyze Cam Outdoor Base Stations when using iOS devices. We apologize for the difficulty and will have that available as soon as we can.
8/31/21 4:22 PM PT - AWS says their systems are operating normally! If you are still having trouble with your Wyze devices, please contact Wyze Customer Support.
3:36 PM PT - AWS has updated to say that they're seeing signs of recovery on their end. Thanks again for your patience!
2:31 PM PT - AWS has identified the root cause of the issue and are working to resolve it now. We are receiving reports from our customers that services such as integrations and push notifications are behaving as expected and hope to see the rest of our services restored to normal operation soon.
12:00 PM PT - We use a service called Amazon Web Services (AWS) for tasks such as sending notifications. Currently, this service is experiencing difficulty and this is impacting some of our products. Amazon is working on it now but you may experience difficulty with making in-app purchases, IFTTT, Alexa, or Google integrations, notification delays, trouble with Cam Plus Events not playing smoothly or experiencing errors, or a delay when using Wyze Home Monitoring alarms or disarming your system. We apologize and appreciate your patience.

9/8/21 3:00 PM PT - Wyze Cam Outdoor firmware 184.108.40.206 and Base Station 220.127.116.11 should fix this problem. Please update to these versions and try again. You can flash the firmware using the instructions below but selecting the most recent firmware release. If you continue to have the flashing blue light, please contact Wyze Customer Support.
8/30/21 12:30 PM PT - There is an issue with Wyze Cam Outdoor Base Station that causes it to flash blue without progressing if the firmware is updated when using the wireless connection, followed by plugging the Base Station into ethernet, and then unplugging the ethernet cable to run wirelessly again. We are working on a firmware fix for this. In the meantime, here's a temporary fix method that flashes firmware:
- Download the 18.104.22.168 firmware version using this link.
- Put the firmware onto a microSD card:
- Windows 10: Right-click in the folder and select Extract All.
- Mac: Drag and drop the folder to the root directory of your microSD card. The folder name should be sd_update.
- Insert your microSD card into the Base Station and power cycle the Base Station to begin the firmware flash process. The status light will either stay solid yellow or immediately start flashing blue.
- Once the flash is complete, the Base Station will reboot itself. Wait until the status light becomes solid blue again. If your Base Station was already set up, it should reconnect automatically. Otherwise, you can set it up again like a new device.
- Take out the microSD card and remove the sd_update folder. If you leave that folder, the Base Station will flash its firmware every time it reboots.
8/10/21 11:00 AM PT - There was a problem with pairing Wyze Buds Pro when using Android devices. We have found the issue and repaired it. Sorry for the trouble! Please try again if you were having trouble and update your firmware once your buds have been set up. If you continue to have trouble, please contact Wyze Customer Support.
8/4/21 1:45 PM PT - This issue has been resolved in the 2.23 app release. If you have been having trouble setting up your Wyze devices, please update your app and try again. If that doesn't do the trick, please reach out to Wyze Customer Support for assistance.
8/3/21 11:00 AM PT - We have identified the issue and are working on a fix. We expect the update to be released in the next couple of days and appreciate your patience.
8/2/21 4:30 PM PT - We are looking into an issue preventing some iOS users from pairing their Wyze Cam Outdoor Base Stations, Wyze Bulbs, and Wyze Plugs at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause while we investigate.
MESSAGE FOR PEOPLE USING OLDER OPERATING SYSTEMS THAN ANDROID 7.0 and iOS 12.0:
We always aim to provide a better app experience. Some of our upcoming features have a minimum operating system (OS) requirement to function effectively. Because of this and the existing challenges with older OS compatibility, the 2.22 app release scheduled for July 7th will stop supporting device OS versions lower than Android 7.0 and iOS 12.0. Devices with lower OS versions will no longer be able to update the Wyze app from Google Play and the Apple App Store.
If you haven't done so already, please take some time and update your device OS today. If you have any secondary devices that you've used with the Wyze app, you may want to check their OS versions to make sure they're updated. If you've already updated, please disregard this email.
Thank you for your time!
The Wyze Team
NOTE FOR GOOGLE ASSISTANT USERS: Currently some Google Assistant-enabled devices such as Google Nest Hub and Nest Max are unable to show Wyze Cam live streams. We have found the problem and are working on a solution. However, due to the complexity of the solution, we are not able to provide an estimate for when this service will work on all devices again. We will provide a progress update and an ETA to resolution when more information becomes available. We apologize for the inconvenience.
6/16/21 5:30 PM PT- We completed the work ahead of estimate and everything looks good on our end. Thank you to everyone that sent in logs and helped us resolve this problem!
5:05 PM PT - Our current estimate for resolution is 6:30 PM PT. We are still working to resolve the chime settings issue. Thank you for checking in!
4:23 PM PT - The fix is still in progress. We apologize for the delay and are continuing to work on this and watch the metrics.
3:25 PM PT - We have identified the issue and fixed it. It will take about 30 minutes for the service to resume normal operation. Thanks for your patience!
2:34 PM PT - Some people with Wyze Video Doorbell are not currently able to change their Wyze Chime settings but chimes are continuing to work using the previous settings. We apologize and are looking into the cause of this issue now.
MESSAGE FOR PEOPLE USING APP VERSION 2.9 OR LOWER:
We’re dedicated to safeguarding the security of our customers and many of these efforts come in the form of app updates. Beginning June 3rd, 2021, we will stop supporting Wyze app versions 2.9 or lower. We’ve noticed that you haven’t updated your app in a while. Without updating, you will no longer be able to log into your Wyze account when this change is completed.
To update your app, please search for “Wyze app” in the Apple App Store or in Google Play. You could also click on the links below and follow their instructions:
We encourage you to update your app at your earliest convenience. Along with the improved security this will provide, you will also gain access to many new features and product options that we’ve launched since the 2.9 app version.
Thank you for your time!

7/13/21 12:00 PM PT - Our forum service has been restored. Thank you!

4/10/21 5:37 PM PT - We have worked our way through the backlog and notifications and tags should be working properly now. If you are still having trouble with your Wyze devices, please reach out to Wyze Customer Support.
2:20 PM PT - We have identified the root cause of the AI tag issue and are working through the queue of notifications that were not sent earlier. You will be able to use filters and view which videos were tagged with person detection during the impacted time. You may receive multiple notifications that were delayed in a short period of time. Thank you for your patience.
1:30 PM PT - We are investigating reports of person detection tags not working properly. For impacted people, this results in Cam Plus videos being incorrectly tagged as motion detection instead of person detection though Rules and integrations with products like Alexa may still function. We will provide further updates as our investigation continues.
3/15/21 11:38 PM PT - We are now seeing service restored to the levels from before the outage. Thank you to the team at AWS that helped us resolve this! Videos that were impacted by this did not upload properly and will not be able to be viewed and we apologize for the inconvenience. If you continue having trouble viewing new Events from after 10:30 PM PT, please reach out to Wyze Customer Support.
10:23 PM PT - AWS is reporting that their metrics are back to normal and we're starting to see improvement. We're not calling our issue fully resolved yet and we're continuing to keep an eye on things. Thank you again for your patience.

9:07 PM PT - We are still working together to solve this problem and don't have an update at this time. Thank you for your patience.
7:16 PM PT- We are working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to resolve an issue preventing some Cam Plus videos from playing. This results in an Error Code 06 response and a 0-second video. We will resolve this as soon as we can and are sorry for the trouble.

1/28/21 10:50 AM PT - We have identified a timing issue that could cause devices to fail the setup starting when the issue was first reported. We deployed a fix that will prevent it from happening again and are waiting for verification that this fully addressed the problem.
However, devices that failed setup between 1/21 and 1/27 will not be able to be recovered by customers. If you have been impacted by this issue, please reach out to Wyze Customer Support for a replacement.
1/26/21 2:15 PM PT - We are continuing to isolate the cause behind some folks not being able to complete Wyze Robot Vacuum setup. While this is related to a separate issue, all customers using Wyze Robot Vacuum should make sure they are using at least the 2.16.55 Android app or the 2.16.48 iOS app due to the recent certificate update.
Further, we've found some success for some people with restarting their vacuums. If you cannot see the Wyze Robot Vacuum WiFi broadcast during setup, please remove the Wyze Robot Vacuum from the charging station and then press and hold the power button on the vacuum for 5 seconds. This should restart the vacuum and the WiFi broadcast should appear again during the setup process.
Thank you for your patience.
1/25/21 10:00 AM PT - We are looking into an issue that is preventing Wyze Robot Vacuum setup for some customers. We apologize for the difficulty and will post updates here when we have them.

1/20/21 4:13 PM PT - AWS reports that we should be back online now. If you are still having trouble connecting your Wyze Robot Vacuum to WiFi, please contact Wyze Customer Support.
3:40 PM PT - Some Wyze Robot Vacuums are having difficulty connecting to the internet. We are working with AWS to resolve this issue and apologize for the inconvenience.
1/18/21 6:40 PM PT - Earlier today, we deployed a change to our beta environment that did not factor in existing logged-in devices. Because of this, many people using the beta app received an email in error stating that a new device had logged into their account. We have found the issue and have resolved it so further emails will not be sent due to this issue. However, we recommend that you change your password if you received this email just in case someone was trying to access your account at that time. Sorry for the trouble!
12/21/20 5:00 PM PT - Some people have reported offline issues with Wyze Cam Outdoor after the recent service outage. If this is happening to you, please try rebooting your Wyze Cam Outdoor Base Station. If that does not resolve the problem, please contact Wyze Customer Support.

11:00 AM PT - We do not have an update at this time but are continuing to work to resolve this issue. Thank you for your patience.
10:00 AM PT - We have identified an issue with our system not processing device online/offline status correctly and are looking into it. Schedule and Trigger Rules and notifications may be impacted at this time although the devices may otherwise function as expected through the Wyze app. We apologize for the inconvenience and will resolve this as soon as we can.
11/25/20 5:42 PM PT - This has been caused by the AWS outage that occurred today. AWS informs us that they are seeing improvement and expect this to be fully resolved in a few hours. Thank you for your patience.
1:25 PM PT - We are looking into an issue that is causing difficulty with the Wyze Lock Gateway setup and connectivity. If the Gateway is offline, it will affect remote unlock/lock control. However, local control through Bluetooth would still be functional.

8:24 PM PT - Working through the backlog of device events from during the outage has taken some more time than initially expected. We now estimate that this will be concluded in about half an hour. In the meantime, new triggers or events may have a delayed response.
6:27 PM PT - Our system is working as expected and we are working through the backlog of requests that occurred during the outage. We currently expect that to be fully resolved in around an hour. Thank you again for your patience.
5:58 PM PT - We are seeing improvement and reports of people able to log into the app. We are continuing the work and keeping an eye on the metrics. Thank you.
5:25 PM PT - We are working on a temporary fix for this issue while continuing to explore options for longer-term solutions. We do not have further updates at this time. We apologize for the delay.
4:19 PM PT - We are continuing to work on the login and integration issue and do not have an update at this time. Thank you for your patience.
