Beta Testing for Wyze Cam v3 RTSP Firmware Now Available!

Thanks! I will give that a shot!

I noticed when using bl and I change the setting on Wyze from SD to HD it doesnt seem to affect it…but when using TinyCam it does change the bitrate accordingly.

Loving the v3 RTSP firmware so far, been rock solid for me for 2 straight days. Any news on Pan Cam v2 RTSP firmware?

With cam V3 RSTP, I have a lot of signal loss in Blue Iris but none with VLC. Even the audio is not so bad in VLC. I wonder what BI can’t handle that VLC can?

Are you using Blue Iris? And if so, have you tired to make audio work? I ask because if that’s working for you, I believe you are the first!

Anyone got Wyze Cam v3 working on Hikvision NVR? I followed the steps from the link below but still not able to get any video. It is working over VLC so RTSP is working correctly.

Likely noone will get this working, unless there is a way to set up your NVR to disable Audio. The current RTSP implementation seems to be buggy in this respect. It crashes Blue Iris if you have the Audio stream on.

Tinycam can view the Wyze camera

  1. Over Wyze protocol (cloud)
  2. Through RTSP

If using option #1 then I would expect the change in SD/HD to affect it on TinyCam, seems logical.

Several people posting here the WC3 working well with RTSP. Great!

Please post your setup (what software/NVR you’re using) and if both Audio and Video are working for you at the same time.

That would be helpful!
Thank you

I’ve been noticing one of the Wyze v3 cameras keeps switching to 30 fps in blue iris. How is that possible when the camera’s max is 20 fps? I notice when the camera screen switching off/on, I go to the video settings and I see it’s set to 30 fps… so I put it back to 20 fps even though it should do that automatically like my other Wyze cameras… I can’t tell why that particular camera keeps doing that.

As best as I can tell no Audio support for RTSP streams in Home Assistant either. Old thread, no answer.

… in the meantime, being able to include the video stream from my v3’s is a good start.

I’m very close to selecting the Reolink Duo POE for my next 2 or 3 cameras… (and a Reolink NVR), but they don’t use the Starlight sensor. Arrghh… it’s always something!! [and a higher price point too]

Good question. However, if you setup CamPlus BEFORE you flash for RTSP, the camera will continue to have CamPlus after flashing for RTSP. That works for Pan, V3, and V2.

Look at post 58 in this thread. I posted screen captures of my BlueIris setup. Not making any effort to record or monitor audio on BI.

My screen shots from Blue Iris v4 are on post 50. Since this thread is so long already, I’m hoping someone might collect or create an index telling where the working screenshots can be found. I think this would be a useful resource for people getting started with the beta.
No audio for me.

I think that’s a great idea @tahoejeff, but the trouble is that Wyze has yet to give us any advice or feedback on Blue Iris configuration, so as a result, nobody has a fully-functional configuration. And even people like me who have it working to some extent are experiencing difficulties. And does anyone have audio working? I don’t think so.

I’m new to Wyze, so I have to ask, is the way they typically roll?

If I understand where you’re seeing that in Blue Iris, I’m of the opinion that the number is more like an indication of peak framerate than a setting. I know that looks and behaves like a setting, but I also know that I’ve never seen my setting stick. Assuming that’s true, then maybe the camera and/or the network connection falters at times, such that frames get piled up, then come through in a rush, which pushes the framerate up in Blue Iris. That’s complete speculation on my part.

I’ve had 3 v3 cams running RTSP to Synology Surveillance Station (both video and audio) stable since initial set-up, for 8 days now. Saw a couple others here running Synology without issues too, but don’t think they specified audio.

Has Wyze’s position on the RTSP firmware changed, or is it still “this is beta, you get what you get”? After dealing with that on the v2 I haven’t exactly been eager to adopt more cameras.

Alright so im having some issues with my POS cam v3. After placing the demo_wcv3.bin onto the root of the sd card and struggling for 15m with the retarded sd card slot i powered on my pos cam v3 while holding the setup button. I hear the camera click as if its restarting then the voice says “ready to connect”. i go through the setup process but it never actually flashes the firmware onto the camera. Also just trying to unplug the camera at the small white extension at the camera the damn metal male part actually pulled out of the cable.

UPDATE: Just got off the phone with wyze amazing foreign support team and not understanding a damn thing they said to me. They said they would email i think i couldn’t really tell. Very easy process. Just sat on the phone pretending to understand what was being said for 45 minutes for the call to end with we will email you instead. So i guess in about 3 months i should be receiving an email. Ill update then.
