I have two Outdoor Cams that were both above 50% yesterday and this morning I got a low battery warning. One was down to 7% and the other down to 4%. I replaced one of these cameras because it would completely die once it reached 70-80% battery life. There are no excess event recordings. One camera had only 10 events between yesterday and today the other Cam had zero events.
Yes, Seeing something similar. Also have two outdoor cams. Both suddenly were out of battery simultaneously last week which was strange but possible. Recharged both. One was at 0% earlier this week. The other 0% this morning. Going to be keeping an eye on their charge status. Something strange is going on.
I’m also having another issue. The camera’s stop charging. I look at the app and they are at 100%. If I powercycle the cameras and unplug/plug the charger back in they start charging again. Then app then shows they are at 93% an 96%.
I agree. The battery indicator is not accurate / reliable. The battery level will gradually show a level reduction each day and then, once it hits 45% - 50%, it suddenly shows 10% or less. And, there are very few motion events for this camera. I was hoping I could be away from home on extended trips and count on the camera staying active for at least 2 months without having to be recharged, but the way it is working now, if I’m away 6-7 weeks I think the camera will be dead by the time I return home.
This was caused by the latest firmware! I had it too. Revert back to the firmware before and it wont discharge 20% an hour. Many people have seen this. it is the detection zones added in the last update. They caused the issue.
I recently purchased a refurbished Outdoor cam and am having similar issues with the battery - it was at 61% and then suddenly died. I have the latest firmware installed. I tried everything and finally decided to charge it and it showed only 28% after one hour. Then after 2 hours 40%. Does anyone know if Wyze is looking into this issue?
I charged my Outdoor Cam to 100% on Wednesday and noticed it was completely dead last night. I see a lot of event recordings on Thursday and Friday, but shouldn’t the battery last longer than 2 1/2 days?
Granted, I have had this since July 2020, so maybe it has served it’s time.
