Wyze Cam Outdoor Setup Guide

Now that your Wyze Base Station is set up, it's time to add your Wyze Cam Outdoor. It's an easy process, as it relies on Wyze Base Station for network communication. 

Fully charge your Wyze Cam Outdoor before setting it up the first time. This can take up to 4 hours. Once fully charged the light will switch from flashing red to solid red.

To set up your Wyze Cam Outdoor:

  1. In the Wyze app, tap Home, then tap the + plus sign on the top left.
  2. Tap Add Device.
  3. Tap Cameras Wyze Cam Outdoor > Begin setup.
    • If you don't have a Wyze Base Station on your account, or your Wyze Base Station already has 4 paired cameras, you'll be directed to set up a Wyze Base Station here.
  4. On the back of your camera, open the charging cover and flip the power switch to On.
    • The status light will be solid yellow.
  5. Lift the camera away from its base, or separate the magnetic base from the body.
  6. In the Wyze app, tap Begin Setup.
    • If you have more than one Wyze Base Station, or yours is already full, you'll be prompted to select the one you'd like to pair the camera with.
  7. Press the SYNC button on the bottom of the Wyze Cam Outdoor.
  8. The camera will say "Pairing is in progress. Please wait."
    • The status light will flash yellow and blue.
  9. The camera will automatically finish pairing with Wyze Base Station.
    • The status light will turn solid blue when complete.
  10. When prompted on the next screen, name your Wyze Cam Outdoor. You're all set!
  11. You may have a prompt for a free trial of Cam Plus. Tap Continue.
  12. On the Things to Try page, select Create or edit a device group to organize your Wyze devices into new or existing groups, or select Share this device to give family and friends access to your new Wyze device.
    • Tap Skip to do this later.
  13. You’re all set. Enjoy your new Wyze device!
