The two v3s that are going offline are outdoors and are powered by 1 Wyze power adapter that is indoors. My third v3 is also mounted outside in another location plugged into it’s own Wyze power adapter and never goes offline. All 3 are running the current Firmware Version: 188.8.131.5254.
Is this likely due to the fact that two are being powered by the same power adapter or more likely to be a Wi-Fi issue? These two cams are not any farther away from my Wi-Fi 6 router than the other one and are actually probably a little closer. No other devices in my home ever go offline, even a smart plug that is plugged into an outlet in my detached garage which is definitely farther away from the router than the two v3s in question.
Anyone have any idea what might be happening here?
Here is a 25 foot cable that says it is compatible with the Wyze v3. Still makes me nervious to use a cable 25 feet long. You might try powering one camera then add the second one if the first camera works on the long cable. For 7 dollars, it might be worth a try.
I had a camera die and another that would go offline randomly, but that one still would work. Both were ran off of 1 adapter and 2- 25 foot cables. The one that died was on one port of the power adapter. A new power adapter and no problems for over a year now, on both cameras. That is with the 25 foot cables. Now I did run each camera off of a different port on the same power adapter, if you follow.
I wound up going with this power adapter but it didn’t resolve the issue. Based on your similar experience I’m now considering running a 2nd cable (which is what I’ve been trying to avoid) and plugging them into separate ports of the new adapter. I’ll update this thread if and when I decide to make the change. Thanks for your input.
