How to Setup Wyze Camera? Step by Step a Complete Guide

I was putting up a Wyze camera and found it difficult to obtain specific information for all Wyze cameras, despite the fact that Wyze itself provides this information but not on a single page, such as a complete setup guide, installation for outdoor cameras, installation for wall mounted cameras and so on.

As a result, I consolidated all information relating to setup and installation on one page for consumers to access, which I first found challenging.

After setting it up I faced a lot of issues such as Wyze not connecting, firmware issues, and error 90, therefore I put all my experience into this topic with other details to troubleshoot this by power cycling Wyze camera in different ways.

How to connect Wyze camera to Wi-Fi without a password?

If you’re using Android, you may download an earlier version of the APK (I’d recommend doing this on a different device) and set it up that way. The device may then be managed with the updated version from then on. (Source: Forum Wyze cam)
