Outdoor camera disassembly

Had a WOC fail and Wyze replaced it.

Could not find any information on how to take it apart so I went in and only managed to break 2 small clips holding the battery cover down.

The lens can be focused just like the v3.

There is one screw that can be difficult to remove. It is down inside the camera. The printed circuit boards are attached to a carrier which slides out of the housing once this screw is removed. Don’t use a Philips screwdriver with a pointed end. The drive is very shallow compared to the other screws, so a nice pointy Philips screwdriver will bottom out and the head will be damaged

A friend used to call these Jesus! clips. Also -pins -nutz and -washers.

To this day, this is still the only documented tear down of this camera I could find. Your pics gave me the information and courage I needed to do the antenna modification to this model and refocusing the lens for < 25 cm. I’m pleased to report that the new antenna is working better than ever and I managed to do this without breaking any parts (squeezing the case a little bypasses the clips).

With that in mind, I have 5 more cameras to do this to and I have the video architecture to create a youtube video. Now that I’m confident I can do this without fowling it up, I’ll create a youtube video for the teardown of this camera.

Thanks for posting this. Without it, I’d be too afraid to crack it open.

I figured “broke is broke”.

You are welcome.
