That also happened to me, it's not a big deal. Let's see how to fix this problem.

The reason Wyze Camera is not responding to Alexa

Usually, the problem arises when there's a change on the camera, such as a new name, a firmware update or perhaps some issue with the Alexa skills.

Most of the time the fast solution to fix the problem with a Wyze Camera that is not responding to Alexa is to start all over and do the setup again.

It's time to fix the problem...

How to fix the Alexa not responding problem

OK, usually you got some message from Alexa to let you know that is not working.

Something similar to this

"The skill linked to  front door is not enabled, please enable the skill to control this device"

Of course, Alexa will tell you the camera name you are using.

Let's see an example with my camera named "Kitchen".

When I checked the settings on my Alexa App the camera was enabled.

But still, I couldn't make it work and got the message...

"The skill linked to kitchen is not enabled, please enable the skill to control this device"

Fortunately, the solution was very simple and I could solve the problem quickly.

I deleted the kitchen camera from Alexa and started the setup again.

And voilá, I have my Wyze Cam back working with Alexa. Isn't cool?
