9. Congratulations! You have successfully connected your Wyze Camera to Google Home. Tap “Done” to finish the setup process.

With your Wyze Camera now linked to Google Home, you can ask Google Assistant to show the camera’s feed by saying phrases like, “Hey Google, show [camera name] on [device name]” or “OK Google, show me [camera name]”.

Remember, if you ever decide to move your Wyze Camera to a different room, you can easily adjust its location within the Google Home app. Just go to the “Devices” tab, find your camera, tap on it, and select “Room settings”.

That’s all there is to it! Now you can enjoy the convenience of controlling your Wyze Camera using your Google Home. Happy monitoring!

How to Add Wyze Camera to Google Home

The Wyze camera is a fantastic and affordable security tool for your home. With just your phone, you can easily access the live camera feed and even communicate with whoever is in front of it. All the Wyze cameras you’ve purchased can be set up and managed through the Wyze app on your smartphone or tablet. But here’s the question: can you use Wyze devices and other Nest devices together?

Can Wyze Cameras be Added to Google Home?

The simple answer is yes, you can add all your Wyze cameras to your Google Home system. However, you might be wondering why you’re learning about this here instead of in the Wyze Cam user manual or from their commercials. The truth is, there’s a bit of mystery surrounding this. While it’s clear that every Wyze camera can be connected to Google Home, there are some limitations to its functionality.

It’s possible that the team at Wyze didn’t think this feature was quite ready for mainstream use with Google Home. It’s also possible that they wanted to beta-test it and gather feedback before releasing a fully compatible camera model. Whatever the case may be, you can definitely add your Wyze camera to your Google Home system.

How to Add the Wyze Cam to Google Home

Adding Wyze to Google Home is actually easier than you might think. It’s a simple process that only takes a few minutes, aside from setting up the Wyze Cam itself.

Here’s what you need to do:

Setting up the Wyze Cam

When you open the Wyze Cam packaging, you’ll find everything you need to get started. There’s a USB cable with a wall plug, an instruction manual, and a metallic round plate with an adhesive strip (the Wyze Cam is attached to it using a magnet). Start by looking at the back of the device. You’ll notice a small yellow light that’s solid.

Connect the Wyze Cam to a power source using the supplied power cord and plug. Once connected, the yellow light will start flashing, indicating that the Wyze Cam is in setup mode. Next, download the Wyze app from your phone’s app store and install it. Open the app, register, check your email inbox, and confirm the registration. If you’ve followed the steps correctly, you’ll see a large plus icon. Tap it to add your Wyze camera to the app.

Now, adjust the plastic stand extension on the bottom of the Wyze Cam and locate a button in one of the corners. Press the button, and a female voice will inform you that the device is “Ready to connect.” Connect to your Wi-Fi network using your phone, and a QR code will appear on the screen. Scan the QR code with the Wyze Cam, and the voice will confirm the successful QR code scan. Tap the green button at the bottom of the screen and wait for the process to complete automatically.

Adding Wyze to Google Home

Now, open the Google Home app on your device. Make sure you’re on the “House” tab, usually found in the bottom left corner of the screen. Locate and tap the “Add” button. Then, tap “Set up device.” On this screen, you’ll see two options: “New devices” and “Works with Google.”

Choose “Works with Google” since the Wyze Cam is compatible. This will display a list of all the smart home devices that work with Google. Since Wyze starts with a “W,” you’ll find the app toward the bottom of the list.

Just scroll down the list until you find the Wyze Home entry. Tap on it. This will take you to your Wyze app. If prompted, sign in to your account. Then, confirm that you want your Wyze Cam to be used by Google by tapping Accept.

Now, your Wyze Home account will be linked to your Google Home account. It may take a few seconds, so please be patient.

Linking Cameras to Different Rooms

If you want your Wyze camera(s) to be linked to the room they’re in, you can do this in the Google Home app. This is really useful, especially if your smart devices are already linked to specific rooms. Open the app and scroll all the way down. Select, for example, a Wyze Cam located in the “Kitchen” room. Tap Kitchen, then tap Home (Add to a home), then select Home, and tap Next.

Now, tap Move device. Select Kitchen from the list and hit Next again. If you have more Wyze cameras, repeat the process until you’ve set them all up. Now, ask your Google Assistant to show you the view from your kitchen Wyze Cam. The live footage from the kitchen should start streaming, but remember that it might take longer than you’re used to with other devices.

Wyze Cam and Google Home

It’s clear that Wyze Cam devices work with Google Home, but the whole process isn’t completely smooth. The footage may take up to fifteen seconds to load, which can be a bit frustrating. However, this should improve with Wyze’s next release.
