I have a brand new Wyze v3 camera just mounted on garage watching back alley. Today, I noticed horrific motion blur. I have read previous comments on the subject. The bur occured both with fast moving objects (cars) and slow moving objects (people walking slowly). I have 5 other cameras and have not noticed this type of behavior. I turned off “motion tagging”. So, I am wondering are there any other settings I can look at, or is this just a bad camera
No way to move it closer without bringing it inside the garage. A 2nd wyze is already inside, and while I have noticed a little blur every now and then with it as car comes in and out , nothing like the first camera. I’ve seen something similar in a couple of the other outdoor cameras, as people move in and out of frame, but nothing like the continual jerkiness and blurring of this first camera.
I’ve already ordered a slightly faster router. Anything else I can look at?
OK, thank you very much for suggestions. I edited a clip from inside the garage, and I do notice some blurring when door is closed and car begins moving. And this camera is only about 3 or 4 feet from router. But again, nothing like the one outside! Will try your suggestions. Again, thanks!
Still looks like weak signal or interference, but that is BAD for 3-4 feet! Is there a lot of metal between the router and the cam, or are you in a dense WiFi signal area?
Could be choosing a new channel on your WiFi might help too. Mine is set to “Auto”, where it is supposed to listen and choose the quietest channel on startup. That’s not foolproof, but may be better than if your router has WiFi set to a specific channel.
Sometimes “Auto” is the reason routers work better after cycling power – a channel suddenly gets congested by a neighbor installing something, and the router chooses a quieter channel on restart.
Another question: I heard someone say running an Outdoor Cam base station on wifi within 15 feet or so of a V3 will give the V3 connection issues. Is that a possibility in your case? I haven’t verified the original claim yet.
Also, what @Antonius said – from the clock in the upper-left corner it is obvious the cams are going thru some other hardware or software. What is it?
WyzeCam V3 – wifi —> router ----- hard wire ----> docker-wyze-bridge ---- hard wire (rtsp) —> ContaCam NVR
I haven’t measured it exactly, but I’m sure the camera is more than 15 feet from the router.
I’ve had a variety of other ip cameras, (including a Wyze V2) in that same spot with the same router using rtsp, with their own issues, but never the sort of motion blurring I’ve seen here.
Based upon a similar post I made, I’m thinking it could very well be the interference (metal door, concrete wall with wood backing) between the router and camera. Going to try replacing the router (300mbs) with a faster one (450mbs) and see if that makes a difference.
It’s a new Raspberry Pi 4. These devices are low power, but powerful enough to bridge rtmp streams to rtsp, which is all this one does. I also tested it in my house for a couple days before deploying it to the garage and did not see this particular blurring / jerky behavior.
New router gets here tomorrow and we’ll see if it fixes the problem.
