Anybody have any idea why my wyze cam shows up as “Nova Electronics (Shanghai)” on my network? I have another cam and a pan that both show up as Wyze Labs for Mac vendor, is this normal?
Error at startup overwriting the MAC address of the network card with a Wyze address. A reboot may or may not fix it, but if you MAC filter you should include both addresses. In the meantime, I believe they are looking into the issue:
As many members pointed out already, having a MAC device registered under a Chinese company is different than the device is reporting to China. A device’s MAC registration is agnostic to how it communicates to the world.
Wyze cameras are manufactured in China. Most of the camera parts are purchased from China too. Nova is one of the suppliers for out manufacturer. When our camera boots up, it has an original MAC like c8028f. Wyze purchased our own MAC range which register under our company nam…
I would also submit a support ticket to show more people are having this issue.
