My Wyze Cam Pan v2 is not connecting to the network.

Problem

Your Wyze Cam Pan is having trouble connecting to your Wi-Fi network. It's timing out during setup.

Basic Troubleshooting

  1. Check that your phone or tablet is on a 2.4 GHz network.
    • On iOS: In the Settings app, tap Wi-Fi to check your network name.
    • On Android: In the Settings app, tap  Wireless & networks or Connections to check your network name.
  2. Depending on your device, these options may be different. 
  3. If you only have one network that belongs to you, it should be a 2.4 GHz network.
  4. If you have two or more networks that belong to you, select the one that does not include the following: 5, 5G, 5GHz, 5g. If it has "5" in the name, do not connect to it.
  5. Forget all Wi-Fi networks, restart your phone/tablet, then reconnect to your 2.4 GHz network.
    • On Android: In the Settings app, tap General management or System, tap Reset or Reset Options > Reset Network Settings. Confirm the reset.
    • On iOS: In the Settings app, tap General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
  6. Power cycle your Wyze Cam Pan v2.
    • Unplug your camera from the power outlet, wait 5-10 seconds, then plug it back into power.
  7. Force close the Wyze app, then open it again.

Advanced Troubleshooting

You've tried the steps above, but you're still unable to connect the Wyze Cam Pan to your 2.4 GHz network. The next steps involve logging into your router, and checking your settings more closely.

Don't know how to log into your router? Check out: How to Log In to Your Router.

  1. Make sure your Wi-Fi password is not the same as your Wyze app password.
    • Also, check that your password is correct. Your password is case sensitive.
  2. Check for a space at the beginning or end of your Wi-Fi password.
    • Example: " mypassword" or "mypassword "
  3. Make sure your network name doesn't include special characters.
    • Example: " \ { } $ * ) #
  4. Check that you're using a WPA/WPA2 encryption type for the router.
    • Find this on the ISP label on the back of your router.
