I am not able to sync the right time with my Wyze Cam. It would always set 30 minutes before my local time. For example, if my local time is 6 PM and I hit the sync time button, the time will set to 5:30 PM. It doesn’t matter what phone I use (iOS/Android), the time would only set 30 mins before my local time on the camera.
Note: I live in India and our timezone is IST (UTC+5:30). This is a special timezone because it is not a discrete multiple of 1 hour. Did the devs just forget to take such special cases into account? Or did they think their cams will only be used in North America?
My guess is that the cams are connecting to a time server and based on your IP, gets your time zone from a table somewhere. That time server is probably not aware of the special half-hour increment. It’s non-standard. Considering that these are cheap cameras, at least getting what would otherwise be the correct time zone, is in itself pretty good.
