I have three Wyze Cams (two V3 and one Pan). All are running the latest firmware (184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.110). I have a single V3 trying to contact Chinese and Romanian IP addresses (18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124) using port 10001. I thought this ‘bug’ was fixed in one of the firmware updates years ago - any ideas how I fix this?
Welcome to the community @Joe1576 . If this is the case, and I have no reason to doubt it, it would be best to reach out to Wyze in case there is an issue. You can contact email@example.com and/or contact Wyze by phone: (206) 339-9646 Available Monday - Friday 4 am - 8 pm PT and Saturday 8 am - 4 pm PT, or online: Wyze.com/support
Thanks - I’ve sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. From what I can tell these appear to be pretty standard Chinese/foreign cloud and IOT addresses. It’s just really odd to me that only one camera is doing it. The other two cameras will try and contact a couple Canadian addresses in addition to the expected AWS addresses.
Security@wyze never responded and support was less than helpful suggesting I just add it to the wishlist part of the forum about not contacting particular IPs and waved it off because all the data is encrypted. Since I last looked, it appears the Romanian IP has changed ownership to a company based in New York, but the other is part of Huawei’s cloud network.
The one camera continues to persistently try to contact these addresses. Wyze keeps trying to get me to sign up to a subscription, but there’s no way that will ever happen so long as I encounter incidents like this.
I’m seeing the same thing. I recently installed a Firewalla Purple and am about to block these addresses.
Does anyone know if the US IP address 126.96.36.199 (port 10001) should also be blocked or is this a real Wyze address?
The IP address is linked to a hosting company in Seattle. Wyze is based in Seattle, so it probably is a Wyze IP. On the other hand, maybe block it and see if your Wyze functionality decreases. You can always go back and unblock it.
