Good afternoon, have a Cam Pan V3 set up, as does my neighbor down the road. It was working fine yesterday evening, it went down to -26 celcius last night and now it won’t connect. My neighbor has the exact same issue at exactly same time - living in mid province of BC and cameras (both) are under an overhang with no snow on them. I unplugged mine for the 30 seconds as recommended, but it will not connect.
What is the operating temperature of WYZE Cam Pan V3?
-5°F to 113°F
Exceeding the high temperature by placing the camera in direct sunlight could cause permanent failure. The operating temperature spec for the V3 is -5°F to 113°F (-20°C to 45°C). So it will work at your -20C. Likelihood is it will exceed that range by a bit.Apr 20, 2021
Looks like making cameras cold proof might be expensive. Are you able to mount any cameras inside? I have had acceptable results with regular v3 cameras aimed through double pane windows. See the sample pictures on this link.
Thanks for the responses, yes I think finding a camera to operate at those temps will be expensive, interesting enough my old Cam V2 (photo) is running along like a champ, -36 currently.
I bought the Cam Pan V3 to try and improve the night time video quality, which is 200% better but if it won’t work in all temperatures, then it’s a non win.
Appreciate the link regarding shooting through a window and the resolve in the thread, I’m going to try that today. I’ve tried in the main house previously with double pane wood windows and took it down due to glare.
I’ve got an outdoor Cam V3. It’s been mighty cold here with one day low of -33.4C (-28F) with a few days lows in mid -20’sC. Cam works perfectly.
I do have the outdoor adapter which is in garage. The garage averages 12C warmer than outside temp.
Hope u solve problem.
