2 cameras one usb with splitter at end for power?

I want to run one usb cable, 25ft with a splitter at the end to power 2 cameras close to each other. Will this setup work?

Welcome @JBRADY76!
What cameras will you be using? Are they inside or outside? Will daisy-chaining work for you?

wyze v3, outside under cover, daisy chain?

I have two cam pan cameras connected with a micro usb y cable which is connected to a 42 foot long micro USB to USB cable. The cam pan cameras draw more amps than the v3 so the short answer to your question is yes.

So you have a 42’ usb extension cable going into a splitter to power 2 cameras? Thank you for your response.

Yes. No issues but the standard USB wall adapter that comes with the camera doesn’t have enough amps to power two cameras so I bought some Anker 4 port USB wall chargers.

Good additional bit of info, thanks

No issues on mine…


Do you remember where you got your splitter? Link? I see a couple in Amazon, but would prefer something already tested with V3s.

$6 dollars

these are the cables I used


Pls verify the link? I’m getting Amazon Garage Delivery service.

Which micro usb y cable do you use?

This one


This looks like the same one that @JBRADY76 has but a different brand.

bought a generic one from Amazon

I have this splitter connected to the light socket and connected to two V3’s

Welcome to the Wyze User Community Forum @randblue73! :raising_hand_man:

That is interesting. Can you share why you chose a splitter that can’t plug into the USB A port on the Light Socket and only one of the microUSB plugs on the cam pigtails. How do you get that thing to work? There has to be a minimum of two more adapters or cords to use it.
