WyzeCam becoming more & more unusable?

Never ported numbers to Google. Just got two free numbers for different email accounts and used those.

I strongly believe Wyze should hire some of you folks with your deep knowledge. Wyze needs a lot of IT…AI…HELP.

We have told them the same thing

What did they say?….

SEATTLE, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ – Wyze Labs, Inc. has closed 15 million in financing led by Norwest Venture Partners, with participation from American Family Ventures, Marcy Venture Partners and Amino Capital.

The $15M fund will be used to continue building the smart home for mass adoption by further improving the IoT infrastructure and AI in current product offerings, and by expanding into new product categories.

For those having the camera connection 1/3 failure, just try restarting your phone. It worked for me.

$15 million was the old news. $110 million is the new hotness.

Did the degradation begin after a firmware update? My V2 cameras lost color. Now they are B&W only. Wyze has no fix. I’ve spent hours asking for help and all I get is polite circumlocution from agents that can only follow their computer screen provide low level support and high level of frustrating customers

Wow, had to look up ‘circumlocution’, lol. If you call up a live view of the camera, do you see a half moon with the word ‘ON’ above and to the right of the live view? If so, change it to ‘Auto’ or ‘off’.

Some people are word-smart, some are Wyze, lol. :slight_smile:

I have an iphone 6, with IOS version 12.4.4. I have been accessing my Wyze cams using that iphone 6 for over 2 years, until this morning. I click on the Wyze appl, and it just blanks out and does not open. I tried rebooting the iphone 6, and that did not work. I then tried deleting the Wyze appl and reinstalling it from Itunes, and that did not work either. HELP!!!

After reading your review, I have checked my iPhone 6 Plus iOS 12.5.5 and updated the app (2.27.32). The application no longer opening. Everything works on my iPhone 13 ProMax. I will install a beta version for it for the moment.


How do you install a beta version of the Wyze appl? Will that work for me if I am able to figure out how to do that?

Just installed 2.26.21 without this issue.

That works? But how do I download that from Itunes store on my Iphone? All I see on Itunes store is the non-beta version of Wyze. Sorry for my ignorance.
