TinyCam Pro and new Wyze Cam OG

By changing the UID in the new Wyze Cam OG by adding GW-GC!-then the actual UID number Tinycam Pro responds doesn’t support the Camera and refuses to load. My assumption is the telephoto version of Cam_OG will run into the same issue. If there was somewhere to just edit or load the UID without the pre GW-GC1 for both models we would access or TinyCam pro Recodes for the new models.
I confirmed in developer logs “invalid payload length

TinyCam Pro cofounder Alexey Vasilyev said yesterday 1/19/22 at 12:21pm MT that support for the OG cams will be implemented soon.

As a side note, Wyze actually hired him as an employee, but this app isn’t officially “Wyze Sanctioned.”

As another side note, did you know that you can actually side-load Tiny Cam Pro onto Android auto and watch or listen to your cameras on Android Auto? Pretty cool! Though you should not watch them while driving…but your passenger can, or you can listen to your baby cam, or whatever some contractors are doing while you are driving home or away somewhere.
(sideloading is required because technically video streams violate the Terms of Android auto because they don’t want to be sued for causing accidents).

I wonder if we can side-load the Wyze app onto Android Auto and use it. If anyone ever tries it, let me know.

Again, keep checking back, Alexey says OG support will be implemented into Tiny Cam soon. Maybe sign up for Beta so you can get it sooner.

Great to know Alexey is part of the Wyze team👍. I have been using TCP in my android tv box to get landscape view of 4 cams since the Wyze app is in portrait mode rotated 90 degrees.

Cam -OG Will not work with Tinycam pro

The Cam-OG why don’t it work with the Tinycam Pro like the other WYZE Cameras do?

I moved your above request here for discussion. Tinycam is a 3rd party integration and is not a Wyze product. Tinycam itself needs to update their software to allow the OGs. See the link from above that states from the developer that the app will be updated soon.

Going to be returning most if not all OG cams, and getting old v2s, TINY CAM not working is unacceptable, and it just wont work with OG, wyze app is not up to par.

Make sure to let the developer of tinyCam know that you are interested in OGS and OGT compatibility and show them support. In the link in my above thread the developer of Tinycam did say that OG compatibility is coming soon. Tinycam as an app is not an official part of Wyze and it needs to update their code to support the new devices that Wyze launches, as with all other platforms that tinyCam displays.

Everyone I know thats buys Wyze, monitors on TC. I think it’s WYZE, that should be doing everything in its capacity to let the developer know what they need , even paying to make it happen, not the users… It’s the future of your product not ours.

Welcome to the Wyze User Community Forum @purejunk99! :raising_hand_man:

The Community Forum is a user-to-user forum for Wyze users to share ideas, discuss Wyze tech, answer questions, and get solutions and updates to issues.

We are all Wyze customers, just like you. The Forum Volunteers (Mavens, Moderators, Administrators) are not Wyze employees. Any participation by a Wyze employee here in the forum will be clearly marked as Wyze Team on their profile with a Wyze logo badge.

As was previously noted in the posts above, TinyCam is a privately developed third party app that supports hundreds of different brands and models of IP Cams, not just Wyze cams. And, Wyze does not promote any of their cams as compatible with TinyCam.

Have you contacted Alexey thru the support feature in the TC app to inquire about the timetable for the OG cams to be supported in the app?

TinyCam has made me more inclined to purchase additional Wyze cameras so it’s a mutual beneficial relationship.

The OG is now supported btw: Reddit - Dive into anything
