I have had a Wyze Pan Cam running 188.8.131.52 for around 6 months now and this has been fairly stable when connected to Blue Iris. On the back of performance/quality I’ve experienced with the Pan Cam running RTSP and in Blue Iris 4/5, I decided to buy a couple of V2 cameras.
These V2 are flashed with what I believe to be the latest RTSP firmware (available for them) – 184.108.40.206. Unfortunately, these are no where near as stable as the Pan Cam. (I assume the 2nd set of digits in the version number equates to model?? If not, I wonder what differs between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168)
They each require that I stream the RTSP feed via VLC (rtsp://user:pass@ipaddress/live) prior to showing in Blue Iris. And then, after some time (~2 hours maybe?) both just drop, leaving Blue Iris showing ‘no signal’.
They mirror my Pan Cam when it comes to settings, but stability wise, they’re nothing like.
I tried flashing the Pan Cam firmware to the V2 earlier with no joy.
I fear my only option to have these run with the stability I require, is to flash them with Dafang, which I really didn’t want to have to do
So what differs between the Pan and V2, despite the obvious Motor & Pan functionality?
I had assumed they’d be the same kit inside when it comes to lens, and camera controller, but is that wrong? Could the larger housing be cooling the Pan better to allow RTSP to function?
I just replaced my last WYZE camera with ones that work reliably with RTSP. I appreciate the WYZE idea and platform for phone based cameras, but I’ll stick with stable, slightly costlier cameras with stable signals and higher resolutions.
Yes I’m curious too, I’ve already switched out 2 cameras for hard wired Unifi G3-Flex, but would like to get a decent small wifi camera that properly supports RTSP as my cameras feed my Synology Surveillance station.
I got the REOLINK 4MP E1 PRO, these things are great. Cheap, awesome picture, same size, actually a tad shorter than the WYZE PAN and rock solid streams using RTSP and they are easy to mount on a wall, ceiling.
I had tried the E1 this summer, but the wifi reception was not stable so I ended up returning it. Outside in my backyard I’m using the Reolink * RLC-410W which offers a good resolution and good wifi connectivity, but obviously pricier. Now that the V3 are out, and presumably should work with the Beta RTSP driver I’ll probably use these for my short range needs…
