  • If you have your Wyze Bulb in a socket that’s controlled by a dimmer switch, ensure that the switch is set to maximum brightness.
  • For iOS, make sure the Location Services permission is enabled for the Wyze app.
    • Open the Settings app, then Privacy > Location Services.
    • Scroll down to the Wyze app, tap to open it, then select Always.
  • For Android, when connecting to the Wyze Bulb network, be sure to stay connected to the WiFi network when prompted that the network doesn't have an internet connection, instead of switching to mobile data. If you switch to mobile data or close the prompt, the setup process will stop.
