Sometimes you may want to give a friend or family member access to your Wyze videos. Or you may want individual control of Do Not Disturb settings. Rather than sharing your account, you need to share access to your Wyze devices.

We like Wyze products. Whether you are looking for a camera, a panoramic camera, or a sensor systemit is difficult to find another product as good for such a low price. However, unless you live alone, adding sensors and video cameras to your living space usually means sharing access to these devices.

You can give your username and password, but in general, giving your password is a bad idea. He can be sure of trust your password with a spousebut what about a teenager, a friend at home or a brother-in-law who is watching your kids? Even if you are used to giving your password, you will encounter a different problem with Wyze sensor systems.

If you have sensors on your doors, each device receives a notification every time you open and close these doors, depending on your settings. Everyone will get notifications all day and may not want to. Fortunately, the Wyze app includes a Do Not Disturb feature, but it spreads across all phones and tablets using the same account. Everyone is ready not to disturb, or no one does.

Instead of sharing your account, you need to set up individual Wyze accounts for anyone who needs to see your video feeds and notifications from your sensor. And then share access to your Wyze devices.
Just be aware that one of the disadvantages is that only the main account can see the videos stored on the SD card. For everyone, live streaming and video alerts are the only options.

You will also need to repeat these steps for each device to which you want to share access. Helpfully, any email you have previously viewed will be displayed as a "recent actions" option when you need to re-enter it.

From now on, each user can activate individually do not disturb according to his needs. And if you provide temporary access to someone outside your family, they will not have access to all the history of your videos and you can revoke access later. Just go back to the shared devices dialog box and tap on their account to delete it.
