Why is My Wyze Camera Blinking Red and Blue?

When a Wyze camera is blinking red and blue, it usually means that the device is still in setup mode. Once the camera finishes this process, it will then be ready for use.

A security vulnerability affecting several models of Wyze cameras could have allowed hackers to access the contents of an SD card inserted into the camera. A patch that fixes the issue was released on January 29, 2022 by cybersecurity firm Bitdefender.

Why is my Wyze camera blinking red and blue?

The Wyze camera has a handy status light that helps you know what state the device is in. The light flashes different colors depending on the current status of your device.

Whenever the Wyze camera’s status light blinks, it means that the camera is connected to your home network and set up for use. The light should eventually become a solid blue color over time.

However, if the light never becomes a steady blue or is still blinking red after power cycling it, there may be a problem with your camera. You can reset the camera by unplugging it and then plugging it back in.

One of the most common reasons for this issue is that the Wyze camera is stuck on the ‘Ready to Connect’ message. This could be due to a network error or an error associated with scanning the QR code.

What does a solid blue light mean?

If your Wyze camera’s light turns solid blue after you power it on and connect to the internet, it means that everything is working properly. If the light doesn’t get to this point, then it means that something went wrong during setup.

If the LED indicator remains red, it could mean that there are some communication issues between your Wyze base station and your router. To fix this, you’ll need to ensure that all the port configurations on your router are set correctly.

Alternatively, you may want to try changing the ethernet cable that your Wyze base station is connected to. Sometimes, this is enough to resolve the issue.

If the light still doesn’t become solid, it may be time to upgrade the firmware on your camera. To do this, download the appropriate version of firmware here and follow the instructions.

What does a solid yellow light mean?

A solid yellow light at an intersection means you have the right-of-way but it’s still a signal that you should stop and be especially careful. This is because oncoming traffic may have a flashing yellow light or cross-traffic might have a flashing red light.

Drivers should treat this type of traffic light like a stop sign and come to a complete stop as you would at a stop sign, looking both ways and only continuing when the green light appears. It’s important to remember that cross-traffic might be entering or leaving the intersection when you make a turn, so always be extra alert!

If the light status remains solid yellow for a long period of time, power cycle your Wyze Cam by unplugging it and plugging it back in. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, you might need to update the firmware of your Wyze Cam. This is a step that should be done regularly to maintain the security of your devices and connections.

What does a solid red light mean?

If you’re seeing a solid red light on your Wyze Cam OG or Telephoto 3x, this means that the camera is powered on and in the process of initializing firmware or recording an event. It also means that someone is watching the live stream.

To help keep your Wyze Cam OG or Telephoto3x safe, only share the viewing access to your Wyze cameras with people you trust. That includes changing the passwords on your home WiFi and Wyze account as well as enabling two-factor authentication on both.

In the meantime, if you notice any thumbnail images in the recorded videos that don’t belong to your Wyze camera account, that is a sign of an external viewer and you should disable motion detection function on your Wyze camera.
