V3 Live Stream - Sounding the siren and use of the microphone within the WYZE app

Has anyone tried the siren or microphone features on all of their V3 cameras since the latest releases?

Some of my cameras work just fine. Others have the live stream die if I try either and then have to be power cycled to come back. Some will sound the siren but won’t play the audio I send via the microphone in the app. What say you and how many cameras have you tested both functions on?

By the way, I discovered this issue when trying to scare a bird away from my birdfeeder. The camera locked up when attempting to use the siren and had to be power cycled to function properly. I can reproduce this problem on demand any time I want.

Mine work fine running They live stream 24/7 and I trigger a shortcut numerous times per night that blasts all sirens simultaneously. They are all on 2A power adapters, if that makes a difference.

I’ll try the mic feature on a few now… randomly tested 5 Cam v3. Live streaming, mic on, speaker on, IR on, HD mode, blasted music while whistling loudly, then hit the siren… no hiccups. Edit: was also walking in front of cams while testing so they were also uploading event streams.

Nice and thanks for the reply. Hopefully others will chime in as well.

Oddly, this morning all of the camera started functioning properly other than one. That particular camera has an uber long power cord, so probably the issue. Although, another camera has the same cable and works just fine. It is what it is. I changed absolutely nothing over night, so unfortunately can offer no explanation.
