I called and called wyze and I have trouble with the schedule recording I set it for like 12 hours and I get like a couple seconds clip and its annoying what can I do and do I set sensitivity low if I wanna have my camera alert me when a car drives by? I'd say my street is no more then 15 feet away from the camera

Wyze products are exceptional, incredible tech bargains, offer features that Simplysafe does not offer though they charge much more, like no added fee for cloud recording, Simplysafe doesn't not allow SD cards so to get any playback you have to pay them $5 a month per camera, the Wyze also has superior wifi connection range, I have had a Wyze cam over 300' away from my router and still received full operation, the Simplysafe seemed to need to be very close to the router to work, huge disadvantage. I bought the Wyze outdoor camera love how Wyze e-mails you and lets you know when it arrives, superior service from them. The base station needs to be connected to your router, was concerned on the range of the camera but was surprised when it covered all distances on the property with no signal drop, A+. Awesome that you can take it anywhere, even away from the base station and still record to the SD card. it is extremely well built, Wyze really takes pride in what they build. The technolgy built into for the price they sell them for is astounding. Buy with confidence, I now have 4 of their cams.

Don't waste your money!!! Bad product. Horrible customer service... I mean NO customer service. I just received the Outdoor version a couple weeks ago and it already stopped working. There is no way to return on their website either. They do NOT back up their defective products. BUYER BEWARE!!!! I lost $65 dollars and they lost a loyal customer. Just for the record, I had no problems with the cheaper Pan cam & V2 cams I bought last year. It just sadly appears that if something doesn't work or is defective you are S.O.L.

Brett...gyrations video ! I just purchased the outdoor cam and the battery went from 99% down to 52% overnight. It seems to be in constant live stream mode all the time, then recording when the sensor detects movement. Is it supposed to be like this or is there a way to stop live stream to preserve battery life? Thanks.

I'm confused with this 12 seconds recording. Check all comments and didnt see (maybe didnt check well enough) the answer. So even with card inside you get only 12 second on the card? if you check on your phone and start recording (to the phone) you get also only up to 12 seconds? So if there is thief and you are notified you basicly can see a bit and when finally you see him tilting head up so you would see the face ... vision is gone? That would be ridiculous and I would flip! I hope card or this phone recording is recording more than 12 seconds?

Great review. I purchased 3 starter kits but I am very disappointed with the shortcomings. I was planning on installing WCO for two relatives but the features are severly lacking. Wyze has not delivered a good battery based camera. Wyze should have delivered a Ethernet, POe, Local Storage, SECURITY camera, with open standards, and optional cloud storage!

Ashley Parish

The big thing I'm looking for in this camera is its PIR function and whether wyze have a Person detect option/setting. As this has been up in the air for a long time now, I was really hoping this outdoor motion detect would be pet immune, have person detection option and capable of less false detections. I've found the sensitivity settings on the V2 camera's aren't useful in that regard (lots of triggers from light/shadows). I also would prefer to have these plug powered/not battery but I saw a comment saying that permanent powering is not recommended. Is that true? Have ordered one but delivery is couple months out.

I highly doubt the battery will last 3-6 months. Most likely the battery will only last one month. Yeah having a magnet to the base is great for a thief to easily steal the camera. And when you need to charge the camera you have to take it down, then you can’t use it for like 5 hours. So what’s the point of the base station?

The base station appears to be a Wifi 2.4GHz access point, with an internal subnet between it and the camera on 192.168.200.x. It's a little disappointing to have to have this compete for Wifi channels with my normal access point now.
James Harmon
James Harmon 8 months ago
Brett, can you explain the benefit of using an SD card in the base vs. the cam, or even in both? Also, any recommendation on best setting for Detection Range and Sensitivity? Also, are you able to get these to display on the Google Home Hub? I used to be able to get the Hub to show the Wyze Pan, but it won't now. Thanks!
James Harmon
James Harmon 8 months ago
@Tech With Brett Thanks, Brett
Tech With Brett

So the Base Station SD card only backs up the footage from the SD card on the cam. So if your cam is stolen and you have a time lampse or scheduled recording on the cam it hopefully is still on the base station. Still testing out range but having it lower pointing straight seems best. For Google Home I haven't gotten it to work. Some have said after it failed once, ask again and it will show up.

nyogrson1 actually Wyze has specifically said they are not security cameras. Maybe that’s because there is some legal definition for cameras to be marked as such, I’m not sure. Or maybe it’s a liability thing.

The only way I can think of is to mirror your phone or a tablet to a Chromecast on the TV. If you select the + on the Wyze app home page you can group the cameras to all be viewed live on the same page. The Cam Outdoor does require you to turn on the feed each time you want to view it.

The battery life is probably going to be a deal breaker for me. Once a month is probably the best I'm going to be able to do as far as charging goes. I'm going to just go with a V2 with the aftermarket housing and hard wire it.
badchips10
badchips10 8 months ago
I just got mine yesterday. I am very disappointed that it doesn't have playback. What is the point of having the sd card? If you want to view it it seems that you have to remove the card and view files on a PC. Wyze should add the playback button and have a caution above it that it will drain your battery. Thos way the user can decide if they want to use it. So if you are in travel mode without the base, there is no way to review anything via your phone.

CURIOUS, ON TRAVEL MODE, IF ONE CAN LEAVE WITH THEIR PHONE AND STILL SEE IT RECORDING OR DOES THE PHONE HAVE TO BE NEAR IT? For instance, If I were camping, could I set it up in my camper and leave to go for a hike. Would I be able to check in on my camper in Travel Mode? Also, is it correct that it is 'not' using my phones wifi while in Travel Mode? Thanks for reviewing this.. Wyze has great products.

One of the biggest thing us Wyze camera fans have been waiting for is a wireless version. Not to mention, the outdoor version since conception has been known to be wireless.

It does need to be near your phone. It creates a WiFi connection between the camera and the phone. So if there is no strong connection it won't work.

TBSS DETROIT everyone wanted 30 seconds since Wyze first released their wired cameras. A 12 second record with a 5 minute cool down sucks, it misses a lot. But if you want to pay for their subscription plan, then you get longer recordings with no cool down period.

Another nice job, Brett. It looks functionally similar to the Blink XT, but with rechargeable batteries and the potentially useful "travel mode." I know Wyze doesn't want you messing with the water resistance of the camera, but I see no reason why you can't attach a solar panel like I'm using for Ring cameras outdoors. Even in less than ideal positions the panels keep my Ring cameras fully charged all the time. I'll try it when I get mine...fairly soon, I hope. Also, from what I understand about PIR sensors, they're more responsive to crossing motion than they are to approaching motion. That might be a consideration when choosing a mounting spot. Thanks again for another nice review.

Hugh Dinwiddie that might be because Ring has circuitry specifically designed to work with a solar panel, so the batteries aren’t kept at 100% all the time.

@Dan Dan, this is routinely done with Ring solar-powered cameras and the convenience FAR outweighs the shortened life (far from drastic) and it really doesn't matter. I've been running Ring cameras for well over a year without any problems. I'd suggest try it and you'll find it works well.

Hugh Dinwiddie keeping Lithium Ion batteries fully charged all the time will drastically shorten their useful life.

Thanks for the detailed review! I was wondering how far the cam can be installed and what is the signal coverage of the base station?

I was able to go about 50 meters with the camera still working but it was pretty spotty. It all depends on how many walls are in the way as well.

For security purpose is not even close to the V2. No continuous recording limits how effective in detecting and identifying the bad guys. So its not good.

Very good point. So far it has been pretty good at catching the neighbors cat coming in the yard.

So if we want to see the footage from the camera we have to take it down?? If that's the case I'm not sure anymore

No it's sent to your phone. You have 14 day cloud with it. You also can store the views on the SD card as well via the camera and I believe there is a SD slot in the base in case someone was to steal your camera you still have it on the base
