Wyze Video Doorbell Pro and Chime Pro Access Point Creation

Can anyone that owns a Wyze Video Doorbell Pro and Chime Pro verify that the Chime Pro creates an Access Point that is visible on their cell phone with an SSID starting with “wzap”?
When I unplug the chime pro, that SSID goes away, so I am almost sure that is what is creating this SSID.
I assume the Chime Pro connects to your local wifi (either 2.4ghz or 5ghz) and then the doorbell pro connects to the chime pro?
If this is true, what is the password they use on the Chime Pro (hopefully it is not easily hacked)?

Yes, I confirmed this over a year ago. Here are a couple of examples:

Continuing the discussion from Fix-It-Friday 6/3/2022:


I don’t think anyone has to worry about that for many reasons…but suffice it to say that nobody can tell you the password because it is not known, but even if someone did bruteforce their way into it somehow, there wouldn’t be anything on that network for them to access. Access to the VDBPro would require separate authentication, and there is nothing else on that network, so in some ways it’s safer to to do it this way than connect directly to your Router because this gives it an extra layer of device isolation. It’d be more worth their time to hack your actual router, which is also unlikely. I truly wouldn’t worry about it too much. It’s just annoying seeing another SSID public, but it doesn’t actually make you any less safe by broadcasting it publicly instead of hiding it. Anyone who could do anything with a publicly broadcast SSID would not be slowed down a single second longer with a hidden SSID. It’s just nicer to have it hidden when it’s not intended to be intentionally selectable.


Thanks very much, I should have done a deeper search than I did earlier this morning :slight_smile:


No worries, that’s what us volunteers are here for. :+1: Ask whatever questions you have whenever you have them. Happy to help.
