Solutions To Fix Wyze Error Code 90 Error

1. Check the Internet Connection

Having a bad Internet connection is one of the biggest reasons for Error code 90.

Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

  1. Make sure that your WiFi router isn’t too far away from the Wyze cam gadget.
  2. If the distance is an issue because of how you put it up, you can then get a WiFi Extender to enhance the wireless connection over a larger distance.
  3. If the distance is not the case, move it closer, then turn off your router and wait 2-3 minutes before turning it back on.
  4. Then, sync your Wyze camera with the Wyze app after that.
  5. Now, if the camera’s LED light is solid blue, the connection is working properly.

The meaning of the lights is based on their color, as described below:

Light Color Meaning
Solid Yellow The camera is on and ready to use
Flashing Yellow The device is available to connect when it flashes yellow
Flashing Yellow/Blue The connection is being established
Blue Flashing The device is connected, and the setup is complete
Solid Blue Indicating that it is in great working order

2. Check the Settings of the Firewall

The router firewall sometimes blocks the connectivity between your Wyze Cam and the router; if this is the case, then follow these steps:

  • Sign in to the Wi-Fi utility site
  • Check the firewall settings to see if any rules will enable it.
  • This usually solves the error.
