I need away to use one Cam P2P to an android phone for off site work. Is it possible and if so how is it done.
What is P2P in this context?
The Wyze Cam Outdoor was designed for this trailcam kind of thing. But for the other models the answer is no, unless you use a hotspot and configure the camera on that hotspot.
And many phones can be configured as a hotspot.
Samsung Galaxy A20 - Turn Mobile / Wi-Fi Hotspot On / Off
- From a Home screen, swipe up from the center of the display to access the apps screen. These instructions only apply to Standard mode and the default Home screen layout.
- Navigate: Settings. …
- Tap Mobile Hotspot.
- Tap the Mobile Hotspot switch to turn on or off .
What are you trying to accomplish? “P2P” is meaningless without explanation. Several people have guessed what you mean - may or may not be correctly.
P2P peer to peer without router. I think that I have to use a router to set it up than use a static ip address. I will only be use on one android device for when we do on-site work where the displays we want to view are mounted high and don’t want to keep climbing a latter all day.
The Wyze cameras ALWAYS operate DHCP, so you will need something that can operate as a DHCP server at a minimum (usually a router). They also require the ability to initially check in with the Wyze server after powerup in order to do much of anything (including local recording). The closest you may get is to flash a V2 or Pan cameras with Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) firmware, and then use a client program that can connect via RTSP. You will still need something to function as a DHCP server. RTSP firmware is not yet available for the V3 cameras, but Wyze has said that it’s coming one of these days.
With all that said, the Outdoor cam is a bit different, and it also may be a little closer, but I would not consider it for a location that you are trying to avoid climbing a ladder - it is battery operated so you would need to climb the ladder to charge it rather regularly.
Thanks. I will be using the pan tilt for this soon as it comes in.
Don’t do it. These are a really bad choice for what you are trying to accomplish. (Unless perhaps you install the Dafang firmware that doesn’t require DHCP.)
This is true but check with your carrier how much they charge for this service; some do, some don’t and some have limits beyond which they start charging.
If this is going to be outside in possible rain be careful, the P/T is NOT weather proof like the V3.
