In this comprehensive guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to view the Wyze Cam livestream on Google Home, ensuring you can keep an eye on your home anytime, anywhere.
Before delving into the process, it’s essential to understand the integration between Wyze Cam and Google Home. Wyze Cam is a cost-effective yet feature-rich security camera renowned for its high-quality video streaming and robust performance. Google Home, on the other hand, serves as a central hub for controlling various smart devices, managing schedules, and accessing information through voice commands.
The integration between Wyze Cam and Google Home allows users to access Wyze Cam livestream directly on Google Home devices such as Nest Hub, Nest Hub Max, or Chromecast-enabled devices. This means you can effortlessly view your camera feed on compatible screens or through voice commands, offering unparalleled convenience and peace of mind.
How to View the Wyze Cam Livestream on Google Home
Follow these step-by-step instructions to set up and view the Wyze Cam live stream on your Google Home device:
1. If you haven’t already, download and install the Google Home app from the App Store (for iOS devices) or Google Play Store (for Android devices). Now go ahead and launch the Google Home app on your smartphone or tablet.
2. Tap on the “+” icon at the top-left corner of the screen to add a new device.
3. Select “Set up device” and choose “Works with Google?”
4. Search for “Wyze” in the list of supported services and select it. Follow the on-screen instructions to link your Wyze account with Google Home. You’ll need to sign in to your Wyze account when prompted.
5. Once your Wyze account is linked, tap on “Discover Devices” to allow Google Home to detect your connected Wyze Cam. You can also add other cameras to the home screen. After the discovery process is complete, you’ll see your Wyze Cam listed among the available devices.
6. To view the livestream, simply say “Hey Google, show [Camera Name] on [Device Name].” Replace “[Camera Name]” with the name you’ve given to your Wyze Cam and “[Device Name]” with the name of your Google Home device (e.g., Nest Hub). Alternatively, you can open the Google Home app, navigate to the room where your Wyze Cam is located, and tap on the camera icon to view the live stream.
At preferred time, you choose to unlink your devices from the Google home app by tapping on the device and then “Unlink Wyze Home”.
