Wyze Cam No longer Sends Notifications

My wyze always sent notifications until the beginning of this year. I have a Pixel 3 with Android 9 and the latest 3/5/19 update.

Yes, I have push notifications enabled. Yes, I have power cycled the camera, searched for updates for the wyze app. Still no luck.

I am not using a SD card, but never have and was able to get the 12 sec clip notifications. Any ideas?

There are three places that push notifications could be disabled:

  1. Per camera in the cameras Settings > Event Recording > Send Push Notification. This can be controlled by the camera owner or shared user and will affect both. This does affect Smoke/CO Alarm push notifications.

  2. Globally on an account basis by tapping the bell icon on the top right of the home screen, or using the switch in Account > Notifications. This affects only the owners or shared users login account on all devices they have logged in to the Wyze app.

  3. In the phone’s OS settings, which can enable or disable all notifications from any particular app. This applies to only that particular phone/tablet. (Note: this is not possible in some versions of Android.)

You can think of the three notification control options as three concentric rings or gates. If the inner gate (level-1, per camera) is closed, no notifications get beyond that level. If the gate is open, then the notification can attempt to get past the next level (level-2, account), etc.

You can also try clearing the Wyze App data on your phone.
