Wyze Camera not responding to Alexa

Don't worry, if your Wyze Cam isn't responding to Alexa when you try to use devices such as Echo dot, Echo Show or Firestick I have a quick solution...

Why the Wyze Camera is not responding to Alexa?

There are different scenarios for this problem...

Maybe you just upgraded your Wyze Cam with new firmware.

Or perhaps you deleted the camera from Alexa Skills. 

Changing the camera name also could cause the problem.

Anyway, I got a similar problem when trying to show my camera on TV.

And the fast fix to this problem was to delete and add the camera on Alexa.

Let's see how to do that...

How to solve the problem

I have an Amazon Firestick 4K connected to my TV.

When trying to show my Wyze Cam (Kitchen) on TV I got a message...

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

I checked the Alexa App and my kitchen camera was there....

Wyze Cam Enabled on Alexa

Everything was good, the camera was enabled...

I restarted my Firestick and tried again but got the same message:

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

I was like... "what's wrong with this ?

"Why my Wyze camera is not responding to Alexa?

And then I just deleted the camera from Alexa and started all over again...

And it worked. Now I have my Wyze Cam working with the Firestick.
