6 of my cameras are running in Mississippi, (Central time, UTC/GMT −6) 7 are running in Virginia (UTC/GMT −5). When I got up (~0330 EST) early on the day switching from daylight to standard time all were still on daylight time for their respective time zone.
There was already a thread on it so I posted in it.
And then I proceeded to synch my Virginia cams with my phone while sitting in Virginia. I DO NOT WANT MY MISSISSIPPI CAMS RUNNING ON EDT.
But sometime later my Mississippi cams synched to EDT. I suspect after the time zone change in Seattle.
Is there any way I can reset them to CDT WITHOUT DRIVING THE 1700 MILE ROUNDTRIP?
Wild idea – perhaps tweak your smartphone (temporarily) to make it think it’s in Mississippi? Disable SET TIME AUTOMATICALLY on the phone, and manually set it to Central time. Then use the Wyze app to sync the time to those cameras. Once that’s done, revert the time adjustment made to the phone. I’m not sure if this will work, but it’s worth a try.
I had tried that at first, didn’t work.
Went back and tried it again, didn’t work. Tried it a third time. WORKED!
I searched on here and found others had had the problem before but did not see a solution.
Now if I could just change the “Don’t ask me again for 7 days” prompt. Took 2 tries on 2 regular V2’s, 3 times on my RTSP, other 3 V2’s it worked on the first try.
Even so, if Wyze is using TCP/IP for the connection to the camera, any packets that get dropped or corrupted (due to slow internet connection, or any other reason) should get detected and retransmitted by the TCP/IP protocol. The data exchange between the app and the camera to sync the time would be minimal. A few packets back and forth - wham bam, thank you cam!
