Free App to view the Wyze Cam on TV
The previous picture shows the IP camera viewer App running on my TV.
I mean, the App it's not running directly on the TV, but on a Fire Stick.
As you can see, there's a Wyze logo on the bottom left and an Advertisement on the screen's top. Yes, the free version comes with those small ads.
The picture below shows the App installed on my Fire Stick TV.
Ok, let's learn how to set up the App to connect to the Wyze Cam.
How to connect the Wyze Cam to a TV
Alright, there are different methods to connect your camera to a TV.
I talk about this method in another article, but that's NOT the one I will show you.
You can stream video from your Wyze Cam directly to a device on a local network using the RTSP protocol, and that's why you don't need an Internet connection.
As you can see in the diagram, the device sends a command to the camera in the local network, and the camera sends the video stream. No Internet is necessary.
So, you just need to enable the RTSP on the Wyze Cam to stream to the Fire Stick.
Now, let's talk about the IP Camera Viewer configuration...
Set up the IP Camera Viewer
OK, I assume you installed the IP Camera Viewer on your Fire Stick TV and enabled the RTSP protocol on the Wyze Cam. Let's see how to configure the App.
Here's the step-by-step process.
- Open the IP App;
- Click on "Manage Cameras";
- Click on the "+" (Add) button;
- Select camera type (IP Camera, DVR,NVR);
- Enter the Camera information;
- Test and Save the configuration.
See the pictures below for more details.
Make sure to enter all the camera's information.
For the camera model select the "Wyzecam V2 (RTSP)"
Enter the camera IP and the port 554.
Type the username (admin) and the camera's password.
The credentials (User/Passw) are the ones created during the RTSP installation.
Click the "Test" button and check if you get a confirmation.
And it's done.
Enjoy the Wyze Camera on your TV.
That was easy, right?
As long as you have your Wyze camera with the RTSP protocol enable, it takes less than 5 minutes to get it added to your TV. Now it's your turn 😉
Multiple cameras on your TV
You can have more than one camera connected to the IP Camera Viewer.
Let's say you have more than one Wyze Cam or even other brands.
The App support dozes of different models.
As you can see, I have different camera brands.
Wyze cam is sharing the same screen with high-level security cameras.
Last words and conclusion
Now you know how to view Wyze Cam on TV without using the Internet.
You can still have the regular setup with your camera running through the Internet to your Wyze App. But now you have an extra video stream to your TV.
When the Internet goes down, you can still view your camera. Pretty cool, huh? 😉
