Sometimes you may want to give a friend or family member access to your Wyze videos. Or you may wish for individual control over the settings. Instead of sharing your account, you should share access to your Wyze devices.
Do not share your password; Share your devices
We love Wyze products. Whether you’re looking for a camera, a panning camera, or a sensor system, it’s hard to find another product so good at such a low price. But if you live alone, adding sensors and cameras to your living space usually means sharing those devices.
You can give away your username and password, but generally speaking, giving away your password is a bad idea. It may be safe to trust your spouse with your password, but what about a teen, house friend, or relative who looks after your kids? Even if you are comfortable giving out your password, you will have other problems with Wyze touch systems.
If you have sensors on your doors, depending on your settings, each device will receive a notification each time those doors open and close. Everyone will receive notifications throughout the day and they may not want it. Luckily, the Wyze app includes a Do Not Disturb feature, but extends to all phones and tablets using the same account. Everyone is set not to be disturbed, or no one does.
Instead of sharing your account, you should set up separate Wyze accounts for anyone who needs to view your video feeds and touch notifications. And then share access to your Wyze devices.
Just be aware of one drawback: only the main account can view videos stored on the SD card. For everyone else, the only options are live streaming and video alerts.
How to share access to your Wyze devices
Before you begin, create a Wyze account for each person you wish to grant access to.
Then open the Wyze app with the main login. Click «Accounts» in the lower right corner.
