I am able to update the cams with the RTSP firmware on SD card but after update I believe they are bricked in a boot loop where the yellow light is constant on but I can hear a faint click every 2 seconds. The new cams no longer connect in the app after this. The only way I found to resolve this is to re-update the firmware back to the latest non-RTSP release 220.127.116.11 through the SD card update.
Did the hardware change in the newer cameras that is no longer compatible with the RTSP?
I recently bought a wyze cam 2 earlier this week to test out the rtsp functionality and it worked great. I ordered 2 more yesterday and I’m having the same problem. It’s weird, but maybe the hardware changed in between my two purchases. I talked to support but no help there.
I just bought a Wyze Cam v2 from Amazon only after confirming that RTSP was an available option for this camera, as my use case for it requires it. The first thing I did upon receiving it, was to attempt to install the RTSP firmware on the camera. The install seems to go fine, I get the faint blue light, etc, however, afterwards the camera is stuck in a boot loop. It clicks and the yellow light flashes off and right back on, then a few seconds later it clicks again. It just loops doing that over and over again every five seconds or so.
I reached out to Wyze support for help, but after >72 hours their response was for me to try reinstalling the same RTSP firmware again, which, of course, just results in the same issue.
I guess some cameras are bad. I ended up replacing the two that didn’t work for and flashing the firmware worked first try. There’s no point in wasting your time, either replace it, return it, or don’t use any unofficial firmware.
Same issue. I ordered a Wyze Cam V2 via Amazon a month ago and was able to flash it with the RTSP firmware. Worked great! Ordered two more from Wyze directly and they won’t flash…I just get the continuous clicking. If this firmware isn’t supported on these new builds, I’ll have to return them and find a different solution.
Hi, there is a hardware update due to discontinue hardware parts for v2. Currently the new v2 cameras cannot be flashed to RTSP cameras until we release an update for RTSP firmware. We are working on it now but don’t have a firm timeline. We will give an update once have more details. Thanks!
Thank you for the official ACK on this. Hopefully they can get this squared away soon. A timeline, even an estimate would be nice, because if it’s going to be too long, If it’s unknown, I am probably going to have to return the cams I have until it’s available.
It won’t be very long, The guestimate is a few weeks but don’t quote me. Sometimes engineering problem takes longer than we guessed. We would rather under promise and over deliver rather than vice versa.
