Just guessing here, but I would think your phone has to be connected to the house wifi and not the cellular data.
I don't have cellular data, so mine was by default connected to house wifi.

Also, I connected my phone to the guest wifi in the house, and not my main one. That way the camera's are on the guest network. After being set up the app from anywhere (like friends wifi) can pull up and see the camera's so being on guest network does not harm usability, but makes the network more secure.

Just a little update. After a week I finally got my wyze cam going. My first problem was I wasn't pushing hard enough on the set up button thinking I would break through the coating. Then I couldnt connect to wifi network. After trying different things over a week period I decided to just reset or reboot the router. Thought my modem wasnt going to kick back on. Just kept giving me a red light then a few minutes later all green. Then router kicked on.
Next time trying to connect cam to app it worked just like the video. Felt pretty good but sure was a lot of time spent on this but cam is working pretty good.
