Here’s the instruction on how to flash your WCO with an SD card.

How to flash WCO firmware with a micro SD card

  1. Unzip the firmware file to root directory. The folder name is “sd_update”

  2. Insert the SD card into the WCO. Switch the camera OFF and ON in the back of the camera.

  3. Now the camera will enter firmware flashing progress. During this time, the status light will be solid yellow and blue light (purple-ish color).

  4. Wait until the status light becomes solid blue again. It means the firmware flashing is complete.

  5. Take out the SD card and remove the folder “sd_update”. Otherwise, the camera will enter firmware flashing mode every time it reboots.

  6. Switch the camera OFF and ON again and WCO firmware is updated successfully.


I am unable to download the linked file. Chrome says “Failed - Forbidden” when trying to save as, and when opening in a new tab I get this:

<Message>Access Denied</Message>

Sorry there was an error on my side but I just tested it and it’s working now.

Thanks! Followed the instructions and flashed Had no issues with that process and it booted up fine afterwards. Attempting to use the firmware upgrade option within the app to get it to (the latest version currently shown by the app) failed, essentially the same as previously.

I have submitted logs again, ticket ID 55249.

Just following up on this again. It has been 23 days since I manually updated the firmware to as stated above. In that time, I have not been able to further update the Wyze Cam Outdoor firmware via the app.

Thanks @WyzeLi, this worked!

Same for flashing Wyze Cam Outdoor Base Station Firmware with a micro SD card:

Maybe we could add this to ?
