I did this with one of these right after they came out. It's under an eave on our back door. We're in Colorado so COLD and wet winters, HOT summers... no problems. It's been running non-stop for well over a year with no issues.

Did you check to see if there were wires behind the board where you drilled? If so were the wires hot? Or did you turn off the circuit breaker?

Dave, I guess in your formal electrical/video training that no one one ever said: NEVER, EVER, EVER PENETRATE THE EXTERIOR MEMBRANE OF YOUR WALLS!!!???? When you sell your house in the future and the new owner discovers mold near your penetration, I guess the executor of your will will say, oops or Dave wasn't a contractor. You should be sued just for putting this DIY up (btw, I am not a contractor).

The last reviewer really got it wrong . The drilling next to the box was correct it was a surface mounted box and looking into it you can see were the 110 v entered it . It was very obvious the wiring entered from the right side and he drilled on the left side of the peg board which most likely he installed . The USB connector on it is used for 5 volt DC power only, NO data. I have done a number of outdoor installs the wire is 2 pair ( red, yellow, black, and white ) I cut the wire and splice it after it's all mounted this way you can drill a very small hole . Dave very good video maybe Thomas should have his pic on the poster at Home Depot . RB 34 yrs Retired Electrical Worker ( local 134 IBEW)

For folks with 3D printers, there are some cool designs for the Wyze cams like this one I found: Wyze cam outdoor cover mount www.thingiverse.com/thing:2932013 Heck I might print this before I order my camera... then I will have it before it arrives. There are even designs for corner brackets.

Picked one of these up recently and was curious how it was holding up for you. Looks like it's been about a year since you posted this one. I've been debating the housing thing as I was going to mount it about in the same spot as you have yours set up. Just curious.

I got a USB power adapter that has a 90 degree bend in it, for installing my WYZE camera power feeds behind pieces of furniture close to the outlet. For the last 10 years I've use my old, "indoor only" SMC IP camera outside, with no special case or any problems, just covered by the eves of the house. Only weird thing was the bird that attacked it a few days after I'd originally installed it, obviously noticing its white and black pattern and getting concerned about it. Biggest problem I have with the WYZE cameras is the unreliable, beta firmware they provide for RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) streaming to PC based surveillance software like iSpy. This firmware requires a manual reset every few days or hours because it just stops working after a random amount of time. Sad when my simple, 10 year old IP camera (that no one makes anymore) works better than newer, higher resolution WYZE cameras with open protocols like RTSP. I hope someday WYZE will fix this, but as they're primarily focused on just their proprietary protocols that support their smart phone app - it hasn't been any priority for them to fix. Nice video, keep up the good work!

My Wyze camera has been a lot more realizable then the amazon blink camera. USB powered is a bit of a pain but worth it if camera works better.

There's no way that this is still working long term. Water infiltration from the top where the microSD slot is was inevitable.

Everyone watching this video, *DO NOT* do this at home. What he should've done is ran an AC extension cable from the outlet to the Wyze cam. Then, plug the USB in from there. DC degrades over cable length much faster than AC and why your power company doesn't send power to your house using AC current, ask Nikola Tesla about that.
iKingRPG Year ago
The big USB type-A port is for accessories like of you buy their wyze sensors, or you can plug another wire into there to power a 2nd wyze cam
JOHNNY Year ago
Do you know what's the max micro SD card capacity? I know on the official Wyze cam website, it says up to 32gb, but I want to know what's the max. Also, for continuous video recording [with micro SD card inserted], is it true that old videos taken on the camera gets replaced with new videos after the camera runs out of space? And when this happens, does it replace everything or just a few? Lastly, does the camera allow you to access the files via WiFi or mobile in any way without having to pay a fee [if so, how much would it cost and can you access those files via WiFi from the micro SD card itself, rather than using cloud storage] or subscription?

There is nothing wrong with drilling above or around a jbox if you know where the power enters the box, which you can see by looking into the jbox. Speaking before thinking is much worse.

Now Doug, I love your videos but it looks like a rat nibbled on your pegboard after you got done with the hole drilling. Carpet knife would have worked better. And you have a cord on that 1/2" drill. OMG. Hey, use your critter trap for that rat. BTW, I have the same Dewalt screwdriver.

If you mount the bracket on the wall and it could have been right side up instead of upside down keeping the water out.
Smufter16 Year ago
If are worried about water getting in thru the top just get a large clear plastic cup. Cut just enough of the side of the cup so it slips completely over the camera base. Leave enough of the bottom of the cup to adhere to the surface via 2 sided sticky pads. Also cut enough of the height of the cup so it hangs over the top of the camera without obscuring view of camera. Use the 2 sided sticky pads to attach bottom of cup (upside down) to surface. Use a big enough diameter cup so you can still rotate camera once your "plastic shield" is installed. Cheap and easy. Infinite variations of using clear plastic to act as a rain guard.....
