Connecting Wyze Cam in an out building

I can not get my camera to connect to the WiFi. I’m guessing it’s because I’m in a barn and the router is in the house. Would a signal extender work with Wyze Cam? If so any one that works better with an out building?

What ever way that is feasible for you to get wifi signal into the barn or atleast to the location where you want to mount the camera. Run a cat5/6 to the barn and put up an access point? Mount your home router near a window or wall that has less instructions between it and the barn?

You need to provide more details and description to your physical space because everyone reading this will have a different idea what they think your home and barn setup is. And each of those folks will have a different idea on how to fix their idea of what your situation is. More info is key. Thanks!

How can I fix my car? Without knowing what kind of car and what the problem is, it’s not worth even trying to answer, to many possibilities. Turns out though, all I needed was blinker fluid. :slight_smile:

This type of extender works well. They are made to mount outdoors.
I have one that is about 50’ from my router. I can pick up the Wifi about 200’ from the extender.

The main house is about 25m from the metal barn. My stall is facing the house, that is stucco. I have no idea where in the house the router is, it is the farm owners home. I only have permission to use the WiFi to use my camera.

All you need is power and a place to mount the extender.
You’ll also need the home owners login and password for the router. You would need that for the camers anyway.
