I would like to buy and use a Wyze cam V2 as a baby monitor. I don’t want my kid to see any lights on the cam (even the smallest one) in a pitch black room. Can you shut down every LED on the cam and still get a clear night vision picture?
I’ve look a lot online but I cannot find a clear answer, I still not sure if the visible IR LED on the cam are an indicator or trully usefull to get a clear NV picture.
@Newshound thanks for the fast answer. I don’t know a lot about IR light but on my Infant Summer baby monitor (which I need to replace) there is no visible led or light at all and the night vision is great. You can’t find the camera in a dark room. It’s the same on a lot of baby monitor since we don’t want the kids to be anoy or distract by some led.
I’m looking to get the same from the Wyze cam…if there is a way!?
Yes, there is a way. You can turn ON night vision in the settings, turn OFF the night vision lights, then go to Amazon or equiv and buy a separate 940nm light set. Those are much less visible (if not invisible).
You can also vote for this wishlist item to get them to change the LEDs on the cam in future production:
And a 940nm IR illuminator is needed if you have switched off the internal 850 nm IR lights in a totally dark room, which is what was outlined above.
But the internal lights really are dim, give them a look. Just be sure there is nothing reflective in front of the camera when you look, because the lights are auto-dimming. Point the camera up to check out the lights.
