Mounting your Wyze Cam v3 with the magnetic base:

Wyze Cam v3 includes a magnet in its base that allows it to be mounted to steel or iron surfaces, so you can use the included metal plate for mounting.

To use the included magnetic metal plate:

  1. Remove the backing from one side of the included adhesive pad and stick it to the back of the metal plate.
  2. Go to where you'd like to mount the camera, checking the viewing angle in the Wyze app.
  3. Remove the remaining backing from the adhesive pad, and stick it to your mounting location.
  4. Stick the base of the cam to the metal plate and adjust its viewing angle as needed.

Mounting your Wyze Cam v3 with the screw kit:

For a more secure mount, use the included screw kit to mount your Wyze Cam v3.

To use the included screw kit:

  1. Go to where you'd like to mount the camera, checking the viewing angle in the Wyze app.
  2. Use a pencil to mark the wall through the hole in the camera's base.
  3. Drill a pilot hole, inserting the included drywall anchor if needed.
  4. Screw in the included screw, leaving a small (3 mm) gap between the head of the screw and the wall. 
  5. Mount Wyze Cam v3 by passing the screw-head through the larger section of the hole in the base, then sliding the cam down to secure it to the screw.
  6. If desired, you can snug the screw to create a more snug connection. Not too tight, or you risk damaging the camera's base.

Using 1/4"-20 Mounting with your Wyze Cam v3:

Wyze Cam v3 has a `1/4"-20 threaded connection that you can use to mount the cam to any standard 1/4"-20 mount.

Out of the box, the 1/4"-20 threads are actually used to hold on the base of the cam, but the screw used to attach the base can be removed with a standard Philipps or flat head screwdriver.
