Sometimes you may want to move your Wyze Cam from one area to another and give it a name to reflect its location. Or maybe you just like to mix it up a little on occasion! There are three ways to change your Wyze Cam’s name and I’m going to show you where they are.
The first one is at the end of your initial setup process. After you scan your QR code you can choose to name your camera before pressing “Start.” Don’t worry if you miss this one because you can change the name whenever you want to later!
The next method is when you are in the Devices tab. This is the tab that lists all of your Wyze Cams. The camera that you most recently set up will be added to the top of the list. Right now, the easiest way to rearrange them is to rename the cameras and physically move them. We know that isn’t the best method and we’re working on an in-app way to rearrange them (Note: This is now an option available from the Devices tab. This video was filmed before that update but you can rearrange your Wyze Cams by pressing the button that looks like ). To rename your Wyze Cams from the Devices tab, just press on the current name of your Wyze Cam to have a screen come up where you can rename it. I prefer this method if I want to rename multiple Wyze Cams.
The last method involves your Camera Settings. The last section in Camera Settings is Device Info. If you select this, you are taken to a page where there’s a picture of a Wyze Cam next to its current name in bold. Press the icon that looks like a pencil writing on paper to pull up the renaming screen. I generally use this way if I realize I want to rename my Wyze Cam while already interacting with it.
