As above. A short (2-minute) power failure does not cause an ongoing disconnect between cam and base. But after a longer power failure (maybe 30min), and unlike indoor corded Wyze cams, our exterior wireless batteried cam does not spontaneously re-connect. The exception is that detection of motion can seemingly prompt the cam to re-connect with the base and then things are back to business as usual. If this does not happen, a physical re-pairing with the base is necessary, requiring moving the cam to proximity of the base.
This seems to me to be a design flaw. All our firmware is up-to-date. The cam/base work properly prior to a significant power failure. But if we’re away from home and want to keep an eye on things, a power failure can cause problems not only during the lack of power but afterwards. So it’s not just the nuisance of re-pairing them – it’s the impossibility of re-pairing them, as long as one is away from home. And it’s when we’re away from home that these cams are supposed to be most valuable
Is this something that is an isolated issue? I’ve looked at other posts which make me think that it’s not a one-off problem. Shouldn’t have to re-pair (which basically means re-install) these cams after a power failure, in my opinion. If there’s no resolution, we may have to look to another maker for something that is more robust/tolerant.
