I too had an issue with renewals this morning. I was set to auto-renew, Which, it didn’t (as it turned out, the original invoice showed an April 5 2022-April 5 2023 monitoring period, while the Wyze app showed April 04 2022 - April 04 2023 …which became a non-problem since Wyze support extended the date to May 04 2023 when I called in).
But the real problem [now] is that while the Wyze app is still telling me to subscribe/renew …the online logon is showing I’m good through the May 5 date (when the delayed-by-Wyze-Support auto-renew should occur).
So: no monitoring for me? Dunno. No monitoring on the app for sure.
Note: I logged out of my account on the app and restarted the phone. But after the restart …the problem remains. I let Support know on the same trouble-ticket, but haven’t heard back yet. I’ll give it 24 hours, and check back.
So …to the OP: you weren’t the only person with auto-renew issues this morning. Me too lol.
Can some of you guys submit logs and post the log number in here just in case we can pass some of them on to someone with Wyze?
*Note of clarification: submitting a “log” does not open a “support ticket” and doesn’t get a response…it simply sends applicable info to the devs/engineers behind the scenes which can be useful for them to see what’s going on. Support tickets are totally separate things. But maybe the logs will be useful for someone to figure out why multiple of you have experienced the same thing.
I contacted support earlier today and they said they would look into it and get back to me … they haven’t yet BUT the app started to get further in the setup. Basically the last thing was adding a PIN and there was a little red banner error message near the top that said something about unable to contact the server, try again later.
In any event this evening roughly 8 hours after contacting support the PIN suddenly went through and now … EVERYTHING is Working again … and there was much rejoicing
In the end I had to redo the configuration/setup from scratch … though I did this like 20 times until it finally took. I also cleared the app cache, logged in and out and turned the phone on and off a bazillion times. I cannot say what “fixed” the problem but I’m fairly certain it’s not a problem with the app and was likely some kind of server glitch. Whatever backside tweaking was done seems to have fixed my issue so I’m good YMMV.
If I get an email explaining what happened I’ll post any info here. But atleast as of this evening HMS is working for me the way it did before the renewal.
My issue appears to have been Resolved but I just got my ticket number so …
Wyze Ticket 2929039
This is part of the email response I received …
I would like you to know that HMS is set to auto-renew service. This has been determined as a bug on our system and our engineers are seeing improvements on a fix. We’ve reached out to the team and thanks to reports from users like you, our developers are aware of and actively investigating this issue.
Please DO NOT renew your service wherein you need to repurchase your HMS plan new rate. Your HMS plan should renew at the same rate.
So apparently it is a system bug AND I’m pretty sure I did the thang I wasn’t supposed to at the end. I’ll see if I can get a system log off tonight when I get back but my guess is I basically got a second HMS plan at the new rate. Though even that didn’t work until yesterday so I might still be in this thing BUT the service appears to be working now.
The problem is NOW known as a bug in the system … the only thing left to do is be patient and let them figure out how to fix the bug. After which I’m sure Wyze will take care of everyone adversely effected.
This is the part where people need to be patient. It’s not an app or phone incompatibility problem, the bug will be fixed after it’s understood and the programmers can come up with a good solution.
IF you have this problem it’s still worth reporting it but please don’t try to rush or pressure the people working on the problem, there’s no way to say when the problem will be resolved until they have a handle on what the problem is.
