The battery included with your Motion Sensor or Contact Sensor should last 12 months with regular use. For heavy usage though, your mileage may vary. You'll see a note appear on the Device Screen when a sensor gets a low battery. You can check the status of your battery by tapping the icon and selecting Device Info.
Replacing the battery in your Wyze Sense can be done while it’s mounted or while it’s unmounted:
- When replacing the batteries, use the flat edge of the Reset Pin for pop off the battery cover
- Remove the battery
- Insert the replacement battery with the positive side (+) up and visible after the battery is inserted
- Replace the back cover
If your sensor is already mounted, you can do all of the above steps without taking the sensor down. Just use the Reset Pin to pop off the body of the sensor itself instead of the back panel, which will leave the back stuck in a place where you’ve mounted the sensor.
If the sensor doesn’t start working again after replacing the battery, check to make sure that the battery is placed in the correct orientation (the positive side(+) should be visible after the battery is inserted), and is fully seated.
There is a different battery for the Motion Sensor and the Contact Sensor.
