So, have you considered taking one of your existing camera technology and turning it into a Dash Cam?
Given the size, and quality of the V3 Camera, it could easily make a great dash cam. With Zero changes you could use the camera as it is as a continuously recording dash cam. You would just want to 3d print a window adaptor to put a slight angle on the camera.
Granted you wouldn’t get the same features most dash cams have, but I think this would be a very inexpensive dash cam that provides a much better than image than most on the market today.
I may have my kid print me a window adaptor that has a slight angle to have it straight out the window and give it a try.
Of course you could also develop a fully flushed out dash cam as well, I would certainly be interested as the ones on the market now either are too expensive or just offer too much bloat to them. A 2k V3 pro with some basic features and optional purchasable features would be great.
You can do that. Other users, such as @trekgod3 and @K6CCC, have successfully done that.
The drawback is that it MUST be on the WiFi network at startup and cannot be powered off during travels or else it will stop recording and not reboot or restart recording until that same WiFi network is available to log back in. If your car has its own mobile hotspot, you are in business.
Here is a #wishlist post requesting a Wyze Dashcam. Follow the link, vote for it at the top, drop some like hearts on posts you like, and add your own reply at the bottom if you wish.
I’ve been using a v3 as a dash cam for months. I used the metal donut mount with the 3m tape to mount it to my windshield. As mentioned above, you need to be connected to wifi to watch any footage . I plug mine in and wait for it to boot up before pulling out of my driveway. No complaints so far
I have never used any Wyze cam as a dash cam. Too many issues to make it work such as needing network connectivity when it boots. If I wanted a dash cam I’d probably just buy one actually designed for that purpose.
