Just for my edification, which IoT devices allow you to do that? I know Kasa doesn’t but I haven’t any other products to compare.
Sorry, I didn’t mean to imply that there was another product that implements the ability to specify a replacement SSID+password via existing connectivity. I was trying to convey that this would seem like a viable solution. (And it seems like one that could be implemented without a huge amount of effort.) This would be especially valuable for the wyze thermostat which has such a more involved setup than the wyze camera.
I don’t have the thermostat but have seen the complaints regarding having to go through the ENTIRE process, which is completely insane. Adding back a camera or plug is fairly simple by comparison.
I agree that having the ability to reassign\reset\change the network SSID and password for all devices, device groups, or just individual devices from within the app, perhaps a “Network Management” UI in the Account tab, would be a great improvement. Not just for the Thermostat, but all Wyze IoT on my account. There are Wyze users with tripple digit device lists.
Here is the #wishlist topic for the request to implement this. Please go there, vote for it, and share your experience and suggestions.
Thanks for the link, I went, I voted. Everyone else who happens to come across this in the future, please also do so.
To CHANGE WIFI on WYZE Thermostat it is necessary to remove the thermostat from the app.

Select your answer “Most say NO” Again already installed so just select “Skip” Jumpers are from original installation so select “Next” If you have a HEAT PUMP then you probably have a two Label system Also, if you pull off your thermostat and see only wires labeled like the top line of the illustration in the app then you don’t have a two Label system and select “NO”… Look at the wires that have been exposed by removing your Wyze thermostat From the wall plate select the letters that correspond to the way your base plate is wired. Select “Next” Select “System Off” Select “Next” Select "Next on Removing Thermostat Select “next” on wire pulling (already done) Select “Next” on plate install.
