Pre-order Shipping Update 1/13/21


Preorder Shipment Update #6

Week of 1/13/2021!

Hey, friends!

Jimmy here - I’m a Community Manager here at Wyze, and when I’m not sending you blue heart emojis on our social media, writing these emails is what keeps my days interesting!

Here’s another weekly look into our preorder manufacturing and shipping so you can stay up-to-date on the status of your preordered items. :person_tipping_hand:

First, some weekly reminders.

  • Have you entered the Witness Protection Program since you placed your preorder? Has your name or address changed for some other reason? If so, please contact our support team ASAP! We’ll need the right info so we know where to ship to.

  • Just wanna be clear, the dates that you see in these emails are estimates for when your devices will ship . Once we ship your devices out, they’re in the hands of our shipping carrier and are on their way to you. From there, it’ll just be a little longer before you get your shiny new product. Please give your package 4-14 business days to complete its journey!

  • Not in the Contiguous US? If you’re in Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico, it could take up to 2-4 weeks to get your package to you. We’ve tried teaching our shipping partners how to teleport but it doesn’t seem to have worked. :worried:

Ready for this week’s updates? Alright, let’s go! :point_down:

NEW! - Quick summary.

Notes for Wyze Robot Vacuum

We have temporarily paused additional shipments for Wyze Robot Vacuum.

We’re currently working on a firmware issue that can prevent setting up Wyze Robot Vacuum after a certain date in the near future. If you have your Wyze Robot Vacuum in a box somewhere at home, please set it up as soon as possible to avoid being impacted!

We’ll pick up where we left off with shipping orders once a firmware update is ready to address this issue. We’re optimistic that this will be ready in the next few days.

We did some research and found a small number of orders placed on November 10th that didn’t complete their journey to their first stop after a tracking number was sent to you. We’re gonna need to be reship new devices for these orders, so we’ve stuck them at the top of our list.

We plan to automatically process the replacements for these orders as soon as the firmware issue above is fixed, and no action will be required on your part . We’re really sorry about the lost packages, and we’ll keep you posted here when we start resending these orders!

When can we put in new orders for the doorbell and watch?

Wyze website still show the v3 as “available January 2021”, when will we be able to order more? Will it be January or will it be pushed back ?

Is the setup date issue for the vacuum something that can be overcome by back dating the date on my phone when I set up the vacuum? It seems that FedEx has decided to take my vacuum out for a test drive instead of delivering it. Was initially scheduled for delivery on Wednesday, then it changed to Thursday delivery. Now it just says Pending on the FedEx site and has been stuck in Kansas since Wednesday evening. I’m guessing it’s held up do to some bad weather and roads in that area. I’m just getting a little concerned as the 1/20 date approaches and there hasn’t been a package status update for the past few days.

I am becoming more frustrated seeing others have received their V3’s when I haven’t. I ordered 2 of them to see the upgrade from my V2’s the day they released the pre-order emails to all of us owners. I also only live 30 minutes away from Wyze’s distribution warehouse. Come on Wyze, send out my [mod edit] order…

@JustTheWayItGoes I have moved your post here to the latest shipping update. If based on the timeframes listed here your order is late or lost, please contact Customer Support (206) 339-9646 Monday - Friday 5 am - 6 pm PT and Saturday 8 am - 4 pm PT.

It’s moving again. There’s hope!

So I’m confused. Does Wyze not email pre-order customers directly to let them know of shipping delays?

I never got an email saying it’s delayed, so I’m just sitting here expecting my Home Monitoring Kit in February. I go to the Wyze shop and it is still saying it ships in February. But then I just happened to check here to see it’s delayed until March?

Any reason you guys can’t email the list of people that pre-ordered and also update your website? Or am I reading something wrong? image|230x500

The shipping update in this post was also sent via email to those with outstanding preorders. Theyve been going out weekly.

It came from “Jimmy from Wyze” at if that helps.

I haven’t gotten anything. I have several emails from Wyze. Nothing about my pre-order though. It wasn’t in my spam either. Can you see why that may be?

I dont work for wyze. Just a customer like you trying to help out.

I also literally just got another update email from them dated 1/20 (its after midnight where I am so thats yesterday)

My order of x2 Wyze V3 cameras shipped!!! Hip-Hip, Hooray!!! Lol
Looking forward to buttoning up my security and being able to sleep better

Can someone explain the Wyze watch delay? I keep getting emails saying no updates on Wyze watch but got delayed till April?! Also, This post says March. Correct me if I’m wrong, but you can’t delay a launch by 2 months and not contact your people and explain why.

Well aren’t you just awesome! Thanks for your reply!
