Hello- we are building a house. Wednesday thieves came in an stripped all of the copper and cut every CAT5/6 off AT THE HOME RUN and pulled them out. The house has to completely be rewired.
How much electricity does one of the small Wyze cams draw when it’s not running full time video (ie: set up motion trigger between the late night hours)? I can get one of the 32,000+mAh external / USB battery packs. Also, it’s 6Amp output. My (future) next door neighbors will let me use their Wifi so I can access the cam and get notifications.
There is no electricity there and wont be until after sheet rock.
Thank you for taking the time to share that. I have a 22,000mAh external power pack. I’m probably going to go to the house (under construction) each morning, unplug the external pack… charge it during the day… and then put it back in the evening. Kind of a pain… but we’re only about 3-4 days away from Sheetrock, real lockable front / rear doors. Cheers
I was reading that the 22k should last 25-33 hours? I just went to Best Buy and the Blink ($99) has the long life battery… but no SD card… so I’m on a limb now. Use the Wyze… and I’ll be swapping and charging, but have SD card… B) Blink… put it up high where noone can get it (without 20 ft ladder)… hmm… might have just answered my own question.
if you are thinking about buying a blink for this situation it is probably your best bet, you can still use it after.
You won’t have to worry about charging something up
I have a few blink’s
With blink you can set your trigger time ( cool down time ) of motion events , from 10 seconds up to 60 seconds.
You can set the clip length of motion events , from 5 seconds to 60 seconds you can catch a lot of what is going on in just 30 seconds
