I have one V1 camera and three V2 cameras.
Each one has given me tons of trouble trying to scan the QR code.
I have three cameras configured but am now stuck on the fourth.
First, here is my assumption: if the yellow light in the back of the camera is blinking, and it is repeating “Ready to connect”, it means the camera has not actually been able to scan the QR code. This has been the where each of my three enrollments have been stuck. Each camera has taken at least half an hour to scan the QR code, literally 30 minutes of moving around, tilting, resetting, retrying.
I’ve tried using my wife’s phone, my phone, my iPad. None of them offer any improvement.
I don’t think there is anything wrong with my network - at this stage of setup, the network isn’t even coming into play, is it?
But if this process is so crappy, I would expect to see a lot more people having problems with it.
The FAQ is really not helpful, because it is concentrating on all the obvious things - reset your router, close all your other apps, blah blah blah. None of that is going to help the camera actually read the QR code, is it?
Also, note that once I get them configured, all three cameras work flawlessly.
Any ideas on fixing this horribly bad process? I know that Wyze is going to say “go ahead and return the camera”, but I’m pretty sure that is not going to help. There’s nothing wrong with the camera, the other three behaved just like this and they are all working fine.
How do I convince my fourth camera to get connected?
