Wyze Bulb Setup, Troubleshooting, and Sharing Guide

Wyze published decent information about setting up their Wyze Bulbs, unfortunately, they spread the steps across three help articles!

To get everything working quickly, start with the first step from the Troubleshooting guide:

  • “Turn off your cellular data prior to setting up a Wyze Bulb.”
    Wyze’ app needs to connect to the Bulb’s Wi-Fi network which does not have internet connectivity. Many (most?) phones will automatically switch back to the cellular network and interrupt the setup process.

Next, follow the steps in the Setup Guide; at step 8, keep in mind the Troubleshooting Guide’s advice that:

  • “For some Android versions, you must accept the alert saying the network doesn’t have access to the Internet.”

Finally, during Setup step 10, be sure to share the newly configured bulb(s) with yourself using your Wyze account’s email address. This pushes the updated information to the Wyze cloud. If this setup is the Bulb’s second or subsequent setup and it’s controlled from more than one device (multiple phones, Google Home, Alexa, IFTTT, etc…), this is the easiest way to have Wyze update the Bulb’s configs on the other devices/services.
