Wyze Cam Outdoor WiFi Issue WPA3

The other day, my Wyze Outdoor base station disconnected from wifi and no matter what I did it wouldn’t connect except through ethernet.

I finally figured it out! My router got an update (eero mesh) and enabled WPA3. Turns out, if that setting is on wyze base station won’t connect (but all my other cameras were fine: V2, V3, pan as well as my light bulbs and contact/motion sensors).

So if you’re having trouble connecting the base station to wifi, make sure you have WPA3 disabled.

Great catch on this. Should help others with connection issues. I will definitely add this to my list of options for others to trry.

BTW: Long time no hear, hope all is well with you.

Yeah, got busy (family vacation in August, got married and road tripped route 66 to Santa Monica from IL - St. Louis area - for the honeymoon in September, swamped at work, Yada Yada Yada). Lol

How’ve you been?

Thanks! Voted! I must not have searched well enough while troubleshooting, not sure how I missed that!

I don’t know why Wyze retrofitted WPA3 support via firmware for all cams except original v1 and the WCO base station. Maybe they’ll get it to WCO someday soon. Kudos to you for correctly diagnosing your issue. :+1:

It was fantastic! We stood on a corner in Winslow Arizona. And if you ever travel there I HIGHLY recommend the La Posada Hotel.

I have tried so many times to get the hub on WiFi and can’t get it to work anymore. I have TP-link deco x60 mesh with WAP3 off any help would be great.
