Just a question about Wyze Cam


Just finished setting up my Wyze Cam and I think it’s going to be great! I love all the features! I have a question though. I’m planning on setting up one over my front door. Do I have to plug the video cam into an electrical outlet or does the Wyze Cam have an internal battery? If not, is there a way around it? Thank you for any help.

No batteries in the cam, must be plugged into a power source all the time

You could use an external USB battery pack, but you’d probably have to recharge it at least every other day.

Myself ,I think it’s best have the cams plugged in, I have to many thing already with batteries I have to mess with.

Thank you all for the input and feedback to my question. I see the points you’ve made. The only problem with running the cord that came with it from the inside to the outside, is that I be concerned about it being disconnected, if someone wanted to steal it. But thank you, again!

There’s not an electrical danger because , It’s just low power

That's really of no concern to me or my problem. I just don't want it stolen. If someone should get shocked while trying to steal it, I figure they deserve it. -Ella B.

That’s always going to be a problem with one mounted outside, but to me it’s worth the risk. I have two outside, one on my front porch and one on my back deck. I LOVE them, and if someone steals it I’ll have the clip on the cloud of them doing so.
