We have couple wyze cameras and I upgraded RTSP firmware.
When I turn on RTSP than after some time motion sensors and contact sensors becomes offline but if I turn off RSTP than everything is fine.
I am not even using RTSP stream its just on otherwise I would think may be rtsp live stream is drawing power but just turning feature on makes sensors offline
I understand that TinyCam Pro uses RTSP for Wyze Cams without loading anything on the camera. I have several of my cameras being monitored with it.
I responded because I saw a similar issue where my bridge kept going offline and it seemed that TCP might have been the issue. I have since moved the bridge to another camera and it has been working now for a few hours. Time will tell.
No no, that’s not right. My understanding is that while TinyCam CAN use RTSP mode, it ALSO has the ability to use normal Wyze protocol / API using your Wyze credentials, which is the default for many. (No RTSP firmware required.)
Funny thing!! On wyze app it shows my sensors are offline and there is no log such as what time door was opened and closed. But guess what I am using Home assistant with wyze api from github and I am able to see sensor actions on home assistant. By the way I am using custom RTSP firmware. Maybe something is wrong in wyze app?
You both are being a bit too brief to understand. There are multiple RTSP firmware setups and some of them (the ones from Wyze) do maintain a connection to Wyze servers. The bridge can be plugged into a camera or a Home Assistant server.
Upon reflection I think Mark is saying that the HA “Wyze API” is never accessing Wyze servers via their API at all, despite the name. So Gill is truly off the Wyze grid.
