@robsm1th , as @bryonhu & @K6CCC have both said, its a common Wyze camera problem. And their solution is RIGHT on the MONEY for what most of us that no longer have that problem - have done. Their answer is correct. And like they said, don’t use Wyze WiFi plugs. Both of them gave you an aftermarket fix to make your cams work.
Go ahead and wait for Wyze support to give you an answer. Save you some time, don’t sit back and wait to hear from Wyze support. Open a work ticket via email and ask them. And ask them, and ask them. And in a couple of months, try the other-than-Wyze WiFi plugs.
I apologize right now, before you fuss at me. You likely detect a hint of frustration in my tone. Yes, there is. Its at least once every week someone pops up with a fresh tread complaining as you have. And we don’t blame you for the complaint. We don’t get frustrated that you are frustrated either. We appreciate that you are new to the party and don’t know about these long running idiosyncrasies with Wyze cameras. But two quick replies from long time forum contributors offer you the answer and you appear to dismiss or not consider their remedy? Really? You came, you asked, you got a good answer, that suggest you “patch” your camera eco-system with some inexpensive WiFi plugs versus throw out all your old already paid for camera and go spend 2x, 3x time more for someone else’s without absolute guarantee is better and has none of their own but different problems.
Of course you are welcome to toss all your Wyze products. And please, please, when you find someone else’s reasonably priced product that does better, please, please come back and tell us about it. And I ask that you do this, because many of us wander off and try someone else’s stuff too. We buy, try, discover its not better and maybe not even equal to, we return it or eat the cost, and we often report our bad luck with someone else’s stuff.
Maybe before you spend a penny, you could browse through the existing posted like yours cam problem and the suggestions to fix/patch and the reactions from those folks how the fixes solved their problems. Might save you some money and frustration.
My pet peeve, since you asked is, dozens a day folks rush to this USER (not Wyze Support) forum and post their first visit with a problem that has been asked and answered dozens if not hundreds of times, and don’t bother to read/search or try to find like reports with maybe more than one answer/solution.
We see a lot of this: “This is the first time robsm1th has posted — let’s welcome them to our community!” And we do welcome you, but please don’t rain on the answers you get before you try them.
