Alexa Wyze Skill for Outside North America

I’m sorry to disappoint you but Wyze believes Alexa control is only relevant in the USA.

Alexa skill not available on the México Amazon skill store

Welcome to the community, @ivanngv. I have moved your topic to this #wishlist thread. You can vote for it at the top-left. :slight_smile:

because the Canada skill topic did not move to the Support topic?

Alexa skill not available on the Canadian Alexa skill store

There isn’t a “support” topic. This is a user to user forum. The general area for discussions is #ask-the-community. This area, #wishlist, is where users make requests for new features, etc. Since the lack of Alexa skill outside the US would be a new feature, the post was moved here.

Here’s more info on using the #wishlist and #roadmap areas:

Yes please, skill in spanish.

Thanks for the reply Frederik,

I am a User in Germany who happens to be in the US a lot. So, I contacted Wyze before purchasing some Cams and they informed me in advance that a) their warranty does not extend beyond the US and b) that the Alexa Skill was currently only available in the US.

So, even knowing this, I went ahead and got my Cams. Did I expect the Skill to be available soon? Of course I did but, I was made aware ahead of time.

So, to defend Wyze beyond the explanation of Frederik, anyone could have gotten in contact with the company prior to their purchase too. All it takes is an email. Especially since the Alexa Skill is obviously not there to find.

Having said all that, I also believe that the added production volume and thus lowering of Unit costs should easily offset the cost of setting up a European Skill. For starters you could make it only available in English first to lower costs.

I’m from Brazil and I bought a Wyze Cam v2. I have a Echo Show 5 but I can’t find the Wyze Cam Skill in the Alexa Skill Store from Brazil. When we will have Alexa skill available here? Can you help me?

Owning 8 cameras and like 4 wyze sense kits in Europe (and probably more to come), I support this idea. Shouldn’t be hard to implement and will easy some of us.

It is what is called a high impact / very low cost action.

Voted already. (+2)

Anyone know how to get the WYZE Alexa skill in the UK store ?

Hi,

I’m using Alexa and having 4 Cameras (planing buy few more with the sensors). Lots of my friends also using Wyze Camera in Australia. Few brought in Australia with AU power plug, few imported from USA. Whoever has Google Home are happy guys, they can use the Wyze with their Google home, I’m the unlucky one. Wyze skill is not available outside of USA. Now, I don’t want to move from Amazon Alexa to Google Home. Is there any plan to release the Skill for Amazon Australia store?

Until the product is officially sold and supported in Australia, I doubt it. A Wyze employee explained some of the reasons earlier in this thread.

Currently 102 people supporting this in the Wishlist.

I am sure that there are many more of us outside the US who would like to have the Wyze Skill made available so why don’t we all talk to other users and get them to support this please.

Best regards from Germany.

As mentioned above, it’s more a matter of which regions they officially have product support in. (Currently, only the US.) See the explanation I linked to in the post above this one.

I’m sure Wyze wants to expand their offerings worldwide eventually, but that’s not something that happens overnight. Even large companies/manufacturers often take time before they offer their products overseas. There are several moving parts including support in local languages, local certifications, etc.

The Request/Wishlist is not about support but about making the Alexa Skill available outside the US similar to the Google Skill.
