Wyze Cam as a Web Cam

Use a Wyze Cam Security Camera as a Web Cam for school or meetings for work. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s free. Thanks to the people at Wyze, and Lon.tv for the video instructions.

Instructions

  1. Insert the microSD card into your computer.
  2. Download the webcam’s special firmware here.
    • Windows 10: Right-click on the file “V2Webcam.zip” or “PanWebcam.zip” and select Extract all to your desktop. Drag and drop the “demo.bin” file on the root directory of your microSD card.
    • Mac OS: Click on the file “V2Webcam.zip” or “PanWebcam.zip”. Drag and drop the “demo.bin” file on the root directory of your microSD card.
  3. Eject and remove the microSD card from your computer.
  4. Unplug the Wyze Cam from the power source (ex. the end attached to the wall socket).
  5. Insert your microSD card into the bottom of the camera.
  6. Press and hold the Setup button, then plug your Wyze Cam back into the power source.
  7. Continue holding the setup button for 3-6 seconds until the light is solid blue, then release the button.
    • Note: The “Solid Blue” in this case is not the same as the one normally seen on the camera. Instead, both the blue and yellow LEDs will be on at once, appearing as a lighter blue.
  8. Wait 3-4 minutes.
    • The camera will reboot, and the light status will change during this time.
  9. Once complete, the status light will flash yellow and blue at the same time (not alternating). 

Wyze Cam will continue to flash yellow and blue at the same time if the webcam firmware is installed properly and the camera is turned on.

To use your new webcam:

  1. Connect the USB A to A cable to the Wyze Cam USB port and the computer USB port. 
  2. In your video conference tool (ex. Zoom), change the camera source to “HD USB Camera.” 
    • We recommend you use a different source for the speaker and microphone functions.
