Wyze Cam Pan v3 Unworkable

Have used a couple of Cam Pan v3 cameras for a couple of months, and can say that while the features are impressive, the product does not live up to them. Forget about Panscan or Waypoints; the camera simply does not return to the correct position, making Detection Zones meaningless. Forget about Location Triggers; they simply do not work. And every time the power goes out or you do a firmware update, you have to start over with setup; the cameras do not even remember their position. Whether it’s the firmware or the App, the product is does not live up to its hype.

These are all issues that have been discussed here in the forum since the PanV3 release. They have been acknowledged by Wyze and are being actively worked.

There is currently a Beta Firmware Release in testing that is working to address some of these issues:

I am equally frustrated with Pan Cam 3. And to make matters worse, I try to get support through chat on my phone - and they warn you ahead of time that you could be disconnected if you leave chat - and the support person tells you to check your app for version and boom! I was disconnected. I am a long time customer and I am so disappointed in this camera and lack of helpful solutions. I am ready to throw both away and try a different type of camera all together.

It is recommended to use a seperate browser outside of the Wyze app to do the support chat. That way you can pop into the Wyze app to check those things that Support is looking for without getting disconnected.
