Yeah, you don't need the Internet to have your Wyze camera connected to a TV.

I'm using my Wi-Fi router and the IP camera viewer App (free version).

Using Wi-Fi doesn't mean using the Internet; I'm talking about different stuff 😉

Don't worry, I will show you the step-by-step setup. Keep reading...

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.

The Wyze Cam comes ready to connect to a Fire Stick and use Alexa or Google.

I talk about this method in another article, but that's NOT the one I will show you.

Alexa and Google Assistant require an Internet connection to operate and display the camera on a TV or a display such as the Echo Show; that's not the case here.

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.

Wyze Cam sends video stream to TV via RTSP

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.

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.
