I recently discovered that some of my WyzeCam V2 cameras were not accessible from the Echo Show. I have 4 Wyzecams throughout my house and only 1 of them were accessible when I tell Echo Show to “Show [camera-name]…” When I tried to access the other three cameras, the Echo show would reply “Sorry, [camera-name] is not responding”.
I went through all the troubleshooting tips that I can find on the internet, including:
Rebooting the problem Wyzecams, Echo Shows, and my routers/extenders.
Deleting the cameras and Wyze skill from Alexa and re-enabling the skill and adding the camera back.
Check the camera feed from the Wyze app and signal strength on each. They were all fine and accessible from the Wyze app.
In digging more into the problem, I noticed that in the Alexa app, the 1 good camera that can be accessed from Echo Show would have a different settings page than the rest. When I go into the camera settings within the Alexa app I can see the sub-heading for “Announcements” that gives me the ability to turn on Person Detection Announcements. However, the other three cameras did not have this sub-heading. All 4 Wyzecams are configured exactly the same thing with the same settings (only person detection enabled in notification).
I just want to know why 1 of the camera seems to have a different settings page and that seems to be the only camera accessible from the Echo Show. How do I get that settings page on the other three cameras?
Any help would be appreciated.
