Can the Wyze lamp socket be used to remotely power cycle the v3 cam?
No. The Lamp Socket(s) are installed as an accessory to the V3 and get their commands from the V3. So, the Lamp Socket can’t be accessed or the state changed unless the V3 is online and running.
Additionally, the USB port on the side of the Lamp Socket providing the V3 with power is powered 100% of the time so long as there is power to the receptacle. It isn’t controlled by the Lamp Socket.
The only way to power cycle the cam that is plugged into the Lamp Socket is to power cycle the recepticle providing the power… switch or breaker. With a Smart Switch or Smart Breaker, this could be bone remotely.
Thank you for the detailed explanation, I appreciate it.
