Base Station for Outdoor Camera

Does anyone know why you need the base station for the outdoor camera? The videos posted by Wizen doesn’t show them using the base station!!!

@kamranpeyman Welcome to the Wyze community!

A Base Station is required to use your Wyze Cam Outdoor, for both set up and connectivity purposes. You can’t setup or use the cameras without it.


Because that is exactly the way they were designed, mostly for power conservation purposes. The base station wakes up the camera from low power mode. If you don’t want to rely on the base station you should return them and select a different product.

In “travel mode” the WCO does not use the base station.

The outdoor camera also allows for you to take it on a trip with you and put it in Travel Mode. when you set this, you do not need the base station, but will need the SD Card. THe Video may be showing that feature.
