Besides the vanilla app usage, is anyone doing anything cool with Wyze cams or hardware?
TL; DR Since the image quality on two of my V2 cams has started to seriously degrade, I purchased a V3 to see how it compares. My V3 arrived this weekend, and it has taken the place of one of my V2. That old V2 is now sitting on my desk running the RTSP firmware, and I’ve got a very crude motion/object detection pipeline running against the clip captures. The picture quality isn’t as good, but I’ve been able to detect people, phones, computers, etc. So what is anyone else out their using using their cam for something besides the vanilla video verification?
It’s actually a very simple surgery… Caveat !!! Make sure you do it to an installed camera not a new one unless you install it in the app first… The issue is scanning the bar code with telephoto lens installed
All the videos that I have scene and the articles I’ve read about changing your lens in an IP camera say that you should always set the camera up first using the stock lens, get it online and then you can unplug it and do the lens swap. If you take out the original lens before you set the camera up it’s extremely difficult to focus it back on the QR code
Vic, did you know that it’s very simple to push a small hook or screwdriver between the rubber lens seal and the black plastic surround?? Then just pop the black ring out and the lens is totally accessible… That’s how I’ve done mine and it is really slick how simple that makes a lens swap
