Alexa skill not available on the México Amazon skill store
because the Canada skill topic did not move to the Support topic?
Alexa skill not available on the Canadian Alexa skill store
There isn’t a “support” topic. This is a user to user forum. The general area for discussions is #ask-the-community. This area, #wishlist, is where users make requests for new features, etc. Since the lack of Alexa skill outside the US would be a new feature, the post was moved here.
Wyze Cam not avaiable on the Brazilian Alexa skill store
Its really important to have this skill avaiable! Please help the Brazilian users to easy their lives with this skill!
Thanks in advance!
Yes please, skill in spanish.
Thanks for the reply Frederik,
I am a User in Germany who happens to be in the US a lot. So, I contacted Wyze before purchasing some Cams and they informed me in advance that a) their warranty does not extend beyond the US and b) that the Alexa Skill was currently only available in the US.
So, even knowing this, I went ahead and got my Cams. Did I expect the Skill to be available soon? Of course I did but, I was made aware ahead of time.
So, to defend Wyze beyond the explanation of Frederik, anyone could have gotten in contact with the company prior to their purchase too. All it takes is an email. Especially since the Alexa Skill is obviously not there to find.
Having said all that, I also believe that the added production volume and thus lowering of Unit costs should easily offset the cost of setting up a European Skill. For starters you could make it only available in English first to lower costs.
I’m from Brazil and I bought a Wyze Cam v2. I have a Echo Show 5 but I can’t find the Wyze Cam Skill in the Alexa Skill Store from Brazil. When we will have Alexa skill available here? Can you help me?
Owning 8 cameras and like 4 wyze sense kits in Europe (and probably more to come), I support this idea. Shouldn’t be hard to implement and will easy some of us.
It is what is called a high impact / very low cost action.

Anyone know how to get the WYZE Alexa skill in the UK store ?
@flavio, please remember to vote for this at the top-left of the topic.
I’m using Alexa and having 4 Cameras (planing buy few more with the sensors). Lots of my friends also using Wyze Camera in Australia. Few brought in Australia with AU power plug, few imported from USA. Whoever has Google Home are happy guys, they can use the Wyze with their Google home, I’m the unlucky one. Wyze skill is not available outside of USA. Now, I don’t want to move from Amazon Alexa to Google Home. Is there any plan to release the Skill for Amazon Australia store?
Until the product is officially sold and supported in Australia, I doubt it. A Wyze employee explained some of the reasons earlier in this thread.
Currently 102 people supporting this in the Wishlist.
I am sure that there are many more of us outside the US who would like to have the Wyze Skill made available so why don’t we all talk to other users and get them to support this please.
Best regards from Germany.
As mentioned above, it’s more a matter of which regions they officially have product support in. (Currently, only the US.) See the explanation I linked to in the post above this one.
I’m sure Wyze wants to expand their offerings worldwide eventually, but that’s not something that happens overnight. Even large companies/manufacturers often take time before they offer their products overseas. There are several moving parts including support in local languages, local certifications, etc.
The Request/Wishlist is not about support but about making the Alexa Skill available outside the US similar to the Google Skill.
I understand you completely. I’m just telling you that the two will go hand-in-hand. They won’t release the Alexa skill until they can get the proper “Works With Alexa” certification, which they won’t get overseas yet, due to their server stacks being in North America, which introduces latency, etc. Read this, if you didn’t already.
Since they don’t directly market, support, or sell the camera through non-US channels, the number of people using the cameras in other territories is currently very small, and it doesn’t make sense for them to implement everything they’d need to do to get this certification until they DO support and market the cameras to other territories,
