Wyze Cam Pan v3 w/Solar Panel

I see you need a special plug for outdoor use. Does this mean you cannot use a solar panel to keep it charged?

The Cam Pam V3 does not have a battery and cant be used with the solar panel. The Cam Pan v3 needs to be plugged into an outlet to work.


Technically…if you can meet the power requirements, you could power it via solar. But it would require the appropriate hardware. Solar panel capable of providing enough power, storage like batteries for offhours etc. So you could NOT use the solar panels Wyze sells for their cameras that have a built-in battery. Those cameras function very different in terms of their battery use, how they record etc. But if you had enough solar/battery to power the camera, charge the batteries etc, and met the power requirements 24hrs a day, you could do it via solar.

They list the Pan V3 charger as outputting 5V/2000mA. What the camera actually uses, I couldn’t tell you. Obviously, if none of this means anything to you, it’s probably not a road you want to travel down. But it’s not that difficult to do if you have the need/motivation, or find someone to do it for you.
