Still hoping Wyze will address this issue and make it possible to have multiple HMSs on one account. I need to install as second security system at my vacation home, and if Wyze doesn’t provide a better way to do this I’m going to have to bail. Too bad, I’ve been a Wyze user from day 1 and have a lot invested in it, but this - and other significant gaps, like the inability to automate HMS actions and responses - are fast becoming a showstopper for me.
I suspect there are a lot of Wyze customers who need to add one or more additional HMSs, and you’d think Wyze would want to capitalize on this instant revenue stream…
@WyzeGwendolyn, any inside guidance here??
In the absence of any response I went ahead and bought a second HMS to install on my boat. I already had 2 cams, but added in 2 sensors, 2 motion detectors and a keypad, 3 leak detectors and 3 temp sensors. (It’s a big boat.) Everything connects to the HMS and I can see the second hub and its devices and get alerts from all the devices - yay! But there’s no way to arm the system, even in test mode: the only hub connected to HMS is the original one in my house. I can’t see any way to add in my second hub, and that would be useless anyway, since it’s not in the same location as my house.
So if any of you are interested, this is only a partial solution but is better than nothing!
Thanks for sharing! This is very interesting. I was really curious what would happen in this kind of situation. It’s especially interesting how it works having the second hub in an entirely separate location with a different WiFi.
Honestly I’m just glad that the second hub works on the same account and allows adding devices even if they aren’t tied to the HMS system. So basically it just ends up functioning the same way everything did on the V1 sensors when we had multiple bridges, it’s just that their monitoring tab can only take into account a single hub tied to the subscription.
Thanks again for letting us know.
I have an office and a home, both with cameras and I just added the Home Monitoring to my office to get familiar with it and was just assuming I could add it to my home as well! That’s a really shocker that I can’t!!
That will be two yearly subscriptions from myself if they can speed this up and make it work.
Otherwise I’ll have to look into a HomeKit solution as I have some Homekit devices at home as well.
Has anyone tried this for a second location…
Set up a additional account
using a different email, user ID
Would the app, in this arrangement, require a second
phone to work?
I wish to have multiple homes under one account. We have three homes and I would like to arm / disarm and monitor all three homes within one app and one login. Home 1, home 2 and home 3 should all be visible and controllable.

Multiple home monitoring homes in one account!
Please make this possible!!!
Please add the ability to access both my home monitoring systems to my Android phone.
Yes I’ve done this. But it’s not ideal. Ideally we can control both systems from one account.
Yes, please make this happen. Multiple homes within one account.
How are you doing this?
I like the Wyze system but am frustrated that I can only use their system for one home. I’m about ready to go away from Wyze and use another system for our other homes.
I don’t believe it would be that complicated for them to provide this function but they evidently don’t feel it’s a high enough need.
It’s unlikely that the majority of Wyze users have multiple residences. I am glad that you are fortunate
Speak for yourself. There are many many instances where multiple location could exist. Girl friend boyfriend, vacation home, 2nd home, separated parents, etc.
Someone running an airbnb business
The only available option for now is to create a separate account for your different HMS.
But it’s so frustrating. I have an Airbnb and will have more. I want to monitor all on one account. Not possible. Please Wyze make this possible.
So glad to find this before I ordered 2nd wyze for home, come on guys get this done!
Yup actually need multiple home setup asap!
Ability to configure multiple sense hubs to a single single Wyze account while allowing specific sensors defined to specific hubs
Use case: multiple physical locations and want to manage all v2 sensors, alerts, monitoring, and payments from a single Wyze account.
How it would work:
- In the Wyze app, the user defines one or more groups or locations such as Seattle and Bozeman or Home and Workshop
- whenever a new v2 sensor or hub is added, it must be added to an existing (or new) group
- each group or sensors in a group can have different alert, notification, and other settings
- when an event is triggered, the notifications include the name of the group that sensor is a member of allowing the recipient to clearly know which group or location name the alert is associated with
- for any shared alerts or notifications, those are applied at either the group level or per sensor
Allows a single Wyze account to manage multiple installations and configs of Wyze sense hubs and v2 sensors. No need to setup and manage multiple Wyze accounts and logins.
Simplified billing - one credit card, one charge, same time every month (or year)
Bundling - could allow for discounts on multiple, monitored locations/sites or insurance
Organizes the configuration and control of devices into pre-defined groups instead of a flat-file type list
Is this a current feature or something planned for the future?
