I just installed the beta firmware 188.8.131.523 on my Wyze bulbs and they are now no longer connecting to the app while on my segmented network that has intranet access blocked. This was not an issue prior to the 184.108.40.2063 firmware update. If I turn on intranet access for the network they are connected to, the bulbs begin communicating with the app again.
Yeah, the bulbs DO have an internet connection to the outside world. They are just blocked from accessing my local network (intranet) with all of my other devices (computers etc.). I basically have all of my “internet of things” devices on one network that is unable to communicate with the rest of my devices.
Prior to this update, the bulbs had no problem connecting, but now with this newer firmware they will not communicate with the Wyze servers for some reason.
I also have a separate IoT network and am having the same issue. Bulbs will not connect to app. The app even when setting up the bulbs on the same network appears to crash and then restart (the screen goes blank then the Wyze logo appears). They are working again however I would like to get them back on a isolated network without poking holes in the firewall. An option to revert to the old firmware would also be nice.
I believe my issue was related to the bulbs wanting to have access to a DNS server. The old bulb firmware did not need this but this version does. I finally tracked down the issue and tested it and now the bulbs will update just fine. The root of the issue was I did not allow my IoT network to access my ph-hole DNS server. Once I set up the rules to allow all worked again.
