My home network consists of three Wyze cam v2, One Wyze cam v3, one Wyze cam Outdoor, 5 Wyze color light bulbs, and two Wyze power plugs.
I have a TP Link TL-R500VPN router/gateway, a TP-Link EAp115 AP for my non Wyze devices, and a Unifi UAP-AC-M AP on a separate subnet for all of the wyze devices to connect to.
For months, probably a year or more, I have fought problems with the Wyze devices randomly disconnecting from wifi. The cameras, and the power plugs especially.
I have narrowed it down to a problem with the App, it appears. If I have all the devices simply connected to the wifi, they work. If I attempt to control them from an integrated device, such as google home, they work.
But the moment I launch the app and connect to the camera’s, the wifi dies. It stops transmitting data, and disconnected all devices, not just the Wyze ones. If I kill the app, things go back to normal in a few moments. I can cause the problem to happen if I am on a Samsung Galaxy, Apple iPhone, or Apple ipad. If I am on the TP-Link wifi and connect to the cameras, both wifi’s die. If I connect my phone to the Unifi AP and pull up, only the unifi AP connected devices die.
If I run my phone only on cellular (LTE) and pull up the app, its hit or miss. Sometimes the wifi still dies, some times it limps along.
At this point, the devices are basically unusable. What can I do to help troubleshoot this. I know others have seem the same issue; I’ve found cases on other forums. But no solution.
