My Wyze Cam with Cam Plus only records 12-second videos.


Cam Plus is tied and bound to a Wyze Cam, but that camera only records 12-second videos. Instead of recording full length videos showing the entire event, you only have 12-second videos.

Troubleshooting Steps

  1. Make sure your Cam Plus subscription is active and current.
  2. Make sure the camera's firmware is up to date. 
  3. Remove the Cam Plus subscription from that camera, then resubscribe. 
    1. Go to Account > Services> Cam Plus > Edit.
    2. Uncheck the Wyze Cam, tap Activate.
    3. Then re-check the Wyze Cam, and tap Activate.
  4. Reboot the device by unplugging it, and plugging it into power again.

Additional Steps for your Wyze Cam Outdoor

  1. Go to the Wyze Cam Outdoor in the Wyze app.
