I have not done this in a while, thankfully @R.Good provided the steps:
Flash Firmware for Wyze Cam v2 & Wyze Cam Pan Wyze Cam v2 and Pan firmware files can be found on the Release Notes page.
Download a specific version of firmware,
For Windows 10: Right-click on the folder and select extract all.
For Mac: Just drag and drop the folder, put it on the root directory of your microSD card.
For both Mac and Windows, rename the file to demo.bin.
Power off your camera and insert your microSD card.
Hold the setup button, plug in your USB cable, keep holding the setup button for 3-6 seconds until the light is solid blue, then release the button.
Note: The “Solid Blue” in this case is not the same as the one normally seen on the camera. Instead, both the blue and yellow LEDs will be on at once, making it appear to be a lighter blue. Wait for 3-4 minutes. The camera will reboot and change light status during this time. Once this is done, your camera should be functioning with the original setup. No need to re-setup your camera!
The steps don’t work for V3. Specifically the last step: “Hold the setup button, plug in your USB cable, keep holding the setup button for 3-6 seconds until the light is solid blue, then release the button.”
holding the setup button than powering as instructed the cam says “Ready to connect” as if it is anew setup. light never goes blue but turns red like initial set-up. than goes through the initial step by step to set up as new camera. when finished the FW remain the same and doesn’t roll back to the previous version while its demo.bin is saved in the root directory of the microSD card.
Thanks… flashed the FW back to 2 earlier versions and none helped to resolved the issues either with the new App update in IOS. Specifically: Live cam works, Events are beings recorded…. However;Timelapse videos can’t be downloaded which I use them daily to scrub recorded scenes, time sync fails to connect, zone detection settings fail to connect. Lots of “failed to connect” errors in settings.
How can we roll back to older App version in IOS?
on iOS, you can simply delete the existing app as it is beta/RC. Then go directly to the App Store and install that version. You will get the latest Production Version of the App by doing this. If you ever want to go back to a Beta release, install the app from TestFlight
Both; the latest from TestFlight version 2.31.0 (3) and the App Store Version 188.8.131.52 were uninstalled and reinstalled and none resolved the connection issues. They were both updated by wyze around the same time and Carrie’s the same problem.
Any way to roll back to an older stable app from the App Store prior to Version 184.108.40.206
Late to the party… updated 13 v2 cams earlier today. Updated some via Account > Firmware Update and some via Settings > Device Info > Firmware Version. Some with Cam Plus, some with Cam Plus Lite, some with no subscription. 2 with Sense v1 Bridge installed. All updates went well and all are working fine.
Just noticed I am no longer receiving notifications from the v3 cameras. Not sure if related to this update or not. I ensured notifications are not snoozed from the app home screen, notifications are enabled per camera, notification are not blocked at the OS level, hard/soft device reboot didn’t help, and I can view the Events that should be triggering notification within the Events page of the app. Also cleared app cache and data to no resolve. I do receive notification from the vacuum and v2 cameras, only seem to be missing the v3 camera notifications.
Recently, it has become impossible to view Playback from each of my v2’s. At the top of the minute of the time, Playback freezes, after a few seconds go by, an error appears on the screen, saying something about (network instability, switch to 380p), reverts back 18 seconds or so and repeats this cycle indefinitely, making it impossible to view any of my footage for more than 59 seconds at a time.
What am I paying for, with my monthly fee?
Why cant I view uninterrupted playback from my own microSD?
Why do we continue to support such an unreliable service and company?
