With my VDB (V1) I get Events every few minutes because of a tree in the yard waving slightly even though detection zone has the tree blocked out. The video will last 15 to 25 seconds. Then an adult human being (my wife) steps onto the front porch to water some flowers and is in constant motion but the video doesn’t begin until she is well on to the porch and ends after 14 seconds while she is still wandering around within a foot of the video doorbell (V1) Something is broken here.
Indeed… The VDBv1 firmware.
See these topics and posts:
@jdwarner94 and @aetoronto, you are not alone. There are MANY topics discussing the problems with the doorbell.
I do have the VDBv1 so I am familiar with it’s capabilities, features, and problems.
You are correct, the VDBv1 does not support motion tagging.
As for detection zones: One of the problems that was introduced on the VDB when they upgraded the firmware to coincide with the integration of the VDB video into the HMS Monitoring tab Security Cam Video, was ‘aspect ratio rotation’ so that…
It appears that the detection zone is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise to what you set. It has something to do with the rotation issue they “fixed” for the Wyze Home Monitoring. On mine, when viewing the live image from the doorbell, it first connects with a low-resolution image, then rotates 90 degrees counterclockwise, then shows the high-resolution image correctly. It seems that somewhere in that rotational process, the capture zone is getting rotated differently from the image.
Anyone has this issue since the last iOS app update?
Aside from the “Step 3” issues that seem to have greatly improved lately (read “not fixed” yet),
I discovered that the Video Doorbell keeps sending me notifications triggered by cars passing by the street.
This area has always been excluded in my setup but, since the recent app update fixing the “eternal spinner” on the area definition zone page, the page is accessible but it seems the camera is just ignoring the zone defined in it.
I have an exclusion zone set up which is the road in front of my house. Over time it’s had some false positives, but today it has been alerting non stop about cars driving by. It’s not reflections, shadows or anything else - the camera is just completely ignoring the exclusion zone.
Does anyone know how to resolve before I rip this thing off the front of my house?
For example, I got an alert about a vehicle and people with these settings in place. It will not stop. 21 al…
My doorbell is getting stuck at “getting video data”. Googled it, and found a
Reddit discussion about it.
It is happening to me. Especially the “split second rotate to landscape” and “try going out and waving at the camera as you are loading the feed. It should load” bugs. Now, I am just eternally stuck at step 3. Did Wyze even acknowledge this bug? Can we roll back firmware?
