I’m looking for some help with my WyzeCam v2. One of my v2 has been reporting that its offline for the last month and I haven’t had much time to play with it to figure it out.
Current scenario: I have since deleted the camera off my account to reconnect/join it again but it doesnt want to complete setup. I am able to press the setup button, then it asks for my wifi/password, then I scan the QR code and wait. After a few minutes the APP reports back that the “Connection Failed” to try and retype the password again or reset my modem/router. The cameras power was originally hooked up by doing a Daisy Chain (USB) cable from one WyzeCam v2 to another v2.
I own about 10 wyze cameras so I’m not new to the setup stage. I’ve done everything I can think of but cant get past the setup.
This is what I have done.
I’ve tried to power cycle the camera by removing power to it.
I tried another good known working Wyze v2 USB cable/power adapter,
I powered on the camera and pressed and held the setup button for about 10sec to reset the camera (it did power cycle)
I also manually (SD card) updated the firmware to the latest version since the camera has been offline for a while [18.104.22.168] (January 27th, 2020). I’ve done this before for another v2 camera that had connection issues that got resolved, so I’m not new to that either Following the guide here https://support.wyzecam.com/hc/en-us/articles/360031490871-How-to-flash-firmware-manually
Verified my Android Wyze APP version is the latest v2.8.24.
I tried power cycling my networking gear (modem & router)
I have verified my wifi password is correct
I verified I am on 2.4ghz
I have tried a new wifi SSID still doesnt work.
Short of taking it apart and reseating the Wifi cable/MHF connection I am out of ideas at this point
