I just recently bought the Deco XE75 Pro mesh units, and have spent 3 days trying to get them to cooperate with the Wyze cameras. My house is only 1900 square feet + basement, but is split across 3 levels and is a compartmentalized house. I have 5 Deco XE75 Pro units. I’m using Shaw Fibre+Gig with a Gateway 2 modem.
Despite having very strong wifi throughout the house, the Wyze app would struggle to connect to the cameras, and when I hit the back button, the app would typically crash.
I believe I’ve now solved the connection issue with the following steps:
- Enable Fast Roaming in the Deco app (under More, Advanced in my app).
- Enable Beamforming in the Deco app (right below Fast Roaming).
- Things seemed to degrade when I enabled IPv6, so it is disabled (under More, Internet Connection).
- Position your mesh routers then let your network stabilize overnight before the next step.
- In the Deco app, go to the More, Network optimization function, and optimize the network.
- Using the Deco app, look at the list of connected devices for each Deco router. Click into any Wyze device, activate High Priority, and deactivate Mesh Technology. This should lock that Wyze cam to that router. Do this for all your Deco mesh routers and all your Wyze cams. When you first activate High Priority, it may ask you for your upload and download speeds. You can get this from your internet plan.
- It may also help to look at the list of devices for each router, and turn off Mesh Technology for all your other stationary devices, like smart switches, bulbs, etc.
The Wyze app can still be a bit slow to show my camera feeds (I have 9 cameras grouped so they all appear on one page), but they do connect reliably now. I was extremely close to sending these Deco units back, but I now think this is workable. Judging from other threads, people seem to have more luck with Asus, Google, and Eero mesh networks, so if you haven’t bought mesh routers yet you may want to consider one of these alternatives.
