V3 notifications delay

Hi Forum,

I have many v3 cameras installed (more than 30) and in different sites, with different internet links.

I even work installing home automation and security systems for customers and have installed over 600 Wyze cameras in over 2 years.

Until 2 months ago the v3 camera notifications (using Cam Plus or Cam Plus Lite) were reaching the phone in 6 or 7 seconds.
Since the v3 Pro version came out, v3 camera notifications are delayed by 19 or 20 seconds. Is this a coincidence?

Has anyone else noticed this behavior ?

I have not.

I just walked out to the garage and before I made it half way to the workbench (about 8 steps) my V3 detected a person, turned on the lights, announced on my Amazon Alexa Echo Dot and the notification arrived on my phone before I made it the rest of the way. All in all, between 5 and 7 seconds.

When I walk outside to my car, I have 3 cams that alert on my phone before I ever make it there. 5 seconds max.

Walk down the driveway and 3 more cams alert in about 5 seconds.

V3 Pro practically immediate; V3, a step behind but seeing 5 sec


Thank you guys very much.

It strikes me that I am seeing this behavior in many cameras and different sites.

Following your comments, I am going to do more testing

Since notifications are so very dependant on the InterWeb Super Highway, I would really be interested to learn how local\regional ISP and Cellular Provider speeds, throttling, prioritizing, routing, and distance to Wyze Servers affects the up\down time for triggers and notification deliveries.

Iā€™m on AT&T (FirstNet) so high prioritization due to being on FirstNet. On a very weak cellular signal -100dBm or weaker.

Event to Notification 5.6 seconds

I have the same issue but only on the cameras that I switched from Cam Plus to Cam Plus Lite.

Yeah the v3 notifications have been more laggy since the beginning of January 2023. A few other-branded cams near the same spots only have about a 2 second delay. Compared with an average of 5 to 8 seconds delay on my wyze cams, it seems to be a wyze or aws issue.
