Wyze Bridges not working

I very much believe in the Wyze products and own most of them. I have 11 cameras and multiple contact sensors and motion sensors. Over a year ago I bought a Wyze bridge and then shortly after that a second bridge because some of my contact sensors were too far away from the original bridge. Both bridges worked well, but the second bridge stopped working after about 11 months. Wyze was kind enough to send me a new bridge. That new bridge installed fine and could be seen, but when I tried to add a contact or motion sensor, it never saw them. I tried with the bridge in different cameras with the same results. As a result I set up all my contact sensors and motion sensors on my one remaining bridge. The contact sensors a little farther away from the bridge would frequently stop functioning. Recently the one remaining bridge also stopped working altogether. Again, I tried it in multiple cameras to no avail. Has anyone else had this kind of issues with the Wyze bridges? For the first 10-11 months everything worked well but now I am down to no bridges that work. I have 6 contact sensors and 4 motion sensors that cannot function without a bridge.

My bridge has been going out intermittently, but comes back online with a soft reboot of the host cam via the app. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come as I add more Wyze Sense devices to my smart home architecture. Its bad enough that I have to depend upon IFTTT to interface Wyze with ST.

I am not sure your problem is the same as mine, but that is what I experienced with my two bridges. Eventually the soft reboot would not work and I had to do a hard reboot by unplugging power to the camera. In time this failed to fix the problem. I hope this is not what happens to you. I am not sure what to do since I cannot purchase a bridge by itself and I do not need any more sensors. I have not had any problems with the other Wyze products- cameras, scale, etc. I assume my contact sensors and motion sensors are still working as well, but the bridge is not working so I cannot see them.

My Son is having this issue with his, but it is only with the Wyze Sense motion sensors not the the CONTACT sensor is fine, seems to have happen after the most recent Firmware update to the cameras, Have had NO issues until after the Update.
Have rebooted the camera numerous times but the MOTION SENSORS have never came back, last time they worked was on July 28th.

I have not tries to delete an re add but was hoping it was something with the update and that it would be corrected.

I am having the same issue. If I replace a bridge, does the MAC change and do I have to reconnect all my sensors? That is a major pain as I have apps that depend on their index position in the app - TinyCam Pro for instance.

I had a connection issue with my bridge that was connected to my pan cam. Every so often it wouldn’t register and I’d have to reboot. I eventually came to the conclusion that it had to be the USB port. I moved my bridge to the regular cam about 6 months ago and haven’t had a problem since.

My bridge is also connected to a Pan Cam. I will try to move it to another camera.

Well I guess I’m part of the club after this latest software upgrade I started to see issues my sensors were reacting slowly I was getting issues trying to pull up my videos on my iPhone I’m having issues viewing my videos off of my Alexa echo show now none of my sensors are working. I have tried resetting my bridge I’ve tried resetting my sensors I accidentally bought a second sensor starter kit so I tried those sensors I tried the bridge nothing seems to work after this new software update

My Bridge stopped seeing all of my sensors motion/door earlier tonight. It’s got a blue light. It was going out to a yellow light earlier this week. It’s been often on for the last few days since the last major set of updates.

I’m wondering if tonight‘s motion sensor is not even showing off (cloud with slash) has anything to do with a recent update.

I’m noticing strange camera behavior tonight and sensors are not communicating with the bridge. Something is going on.

I am guessing that why is having an issue talking to the Amazon Alexa servers. Because my motion sensors keep activating and deactivating my lights seemingly at random but it’s probably extremely delayed from the last time I left the room.

Um, I don’t think so, as the op is dated 8 days ago.
I’ve been having issues all week long, two bridges. Does not matter which cameras I have them in!

My bridge hasn’t worked since last night. I’m guessing the server issues still haven’t been resolved.

The delay is shorter than it was last night. My sensors work but the delay makes it seem like they don’t. At first. Then the notification comes late.

Exact same issue here, now cam is not recognize my bridge!! Sensor of course not picking up any events

I am so frustrated because RTSP firmware makes all my sensors offline.

Wow just looked at my Pan camera and it to is having issues tracking and ghost scans. I can’t wait until they fix these issues with new fully tested software update.
