I have my camera connected to network “XYZ_1234”, phone is connected to the same network.
When I try to download time lapse, I got error “connect to the same network!”. I am…
Looking at what camera reports, it shows network name incorrectly, as “XYZ*1234”.
So, I suspected that camera firmware is not able to handle “_” symbol in the network name, so I changed network name to “XYZ1234”. Now camera shows it correctly, phone connected to the same network… but still no luck, app is refusing to download with the same error message.
Funny enough, that downloading was working about 6 months ago, but not now. Something got screwed either in firmware or in iOS app… but the question, how to fix that?
There are several characters that the Wyze firmware does not like. I discovered a long time when I tried to use my phone as a hotspot with the SSID of “Jim’s iPhone”. The Wyze cameras could not take the ’ . Changed my phone name to “Jims iPhone” and it worked fine.
With that said, the SSID that I normally use for all my IoT devices has both an underscore and a Hyphen in the name and it works fine. I am going to try a Time Lapse right now…
5ghz - currently it is connected to 2.4ghz only SSID “XYZ2”. 5Ghz is on separate SSID “XYZ5”. Phone connected to same “XYZ2”. Delete/reconfigure - that’s what I’ve done when I was switching between networks.
No, I’m not looking for direct download from SD card. I’m using in app Camera->Albums->Video.
It shows recorded timelapse, but trying to tap on it leads to “Connect to same wifi” pop-up message in the app. Previously that functionality worked (at least in May/June timeframe).
Yes, time lapse is recorded, stored properly on sd card (I checked content of SD card on computer), but app thinks that camera and phone on different wifi, even were it is not the case – they are on the same 2.4ghz access point.
Once again: single dumb access point, same /24 net and addresses on both devices are from the same net. Single L2 network: communication between camera and phone is over wifi on the same wifi.
Router is separate device which is not involved in communication between those devices, only to outside world.
I have same issue on my v2 and gave up. But I just got my v3 and still same issue. I never got time lapse to work or viewable from app or pc. Tried to record time lapse few different times, seem to be successful but when try to view, either says not on same network or file don’t exist.
No not really accurate thats it say not on same network. I had set my WiFi on my phone to the same guest network as cam. But guest network limits protocol access that the app must look for to be consider same network. Hope you get what I mean.
