Wyze app and firmware updates bring new features to the Wyze Cam Outdoor and Wyze Lock

Smart home device manufacturer Wyze has started rolling out a significant update (via Reddit user u/WyzeCam) for the Wyze app and a new firmware update that brings several new features for the Wyze Cam Outdoor and the Wyze Lock. The Wyze app update (v. 2.21.25) is already available on the Google Play Store, and it brings Siren support and battery usage summer for the Wyze Cam Outdoor, Google Home integration for the Wyze Lock, and much more.

If you have a Wyze Cam Outdoor, you can download the Wyze app update from the Play Store link below and try out the new features. However, you’ll need to update the camera to firmware version 4.17.1.123 and the base station to firmware version 4.16.2.7. Along with the new features, the Wyze app update also brings a low battery indicator for the Wyze Sense v2 and a Vacation Mode indicator for the Wyze Bulb Color, along with several bug fixes and improvements.
