We have updates for Wyze Cam v2 (22.214.171.1241) and Wyze Cam Pan (126.96.36.1991)! Along with improving the video upload success rate, these fix a bug that affected camera reconnection after a cloud outage.
Please update when you have a moment. This is the update we discussed previously that fixes a bug that has made the outages more difficult to manage. More cameras on the updated firmware will improve our stability if AWS has a blip in their service.
I am worried this will render my v2 cams useless just like all firmwares since 188.8.131.522. If anyone can confirm this firmware is not a bust like the previous attempts that would be great. My main issue is they don’t come back online after subsequent reboots. Pretty sure it also has to do with having a 256GB card in the camera whereas others who have small cards don’t exhibit problems. I am exhausted upgrading and then having problems only to have to unmount them from my outdoor eves to manually flash. 184.108.40.2062 is my firmware until Wyze is able to actually fix serious issues. Good luck to the brave souls that upgrade. Let us know how your journey ends
@WyzeJasonJ How long will it take to get a viable firmware that works for V2 cams? 220.127.116.112 is the only one that “works” (and I say that lightly since there are problems with detection masking system in that build). All we want is a stable firmware that works! Most of these firmwares you have been pushing out either don’t upgrade properly, don’t understand larger wifi passwords, don’t work with cameras with large SD cards in them and end up having to be manually flashed back. There is no way on earth Wyze does not realize that V2 camera owners are in a bind. I am not upgrading to new cameras because you can’t release reliable software for earlier models. Take V2 camera off your racks flash it to 18.104.22.1682, put a large SD card in it and then try to upgrade it. If it upgrades, check that continuous SD recording works, check that your wifi password with 16-32 characters works, check that you can reboot it with software and it still works, unplug and replug it in a few times and then make sure all the features still work and that it boots up. If you want to go the extra mile make sure it still works when the network has a few APs in the house or on a mesh network. Basic functionality is broken. We should not have to tell you guys how to test these things. What on earth is going on over there. Make a commitment to your users. I have been a user of these cams for years and I love the people detection but I hate the way your company works and treats us. The moment there is a low cost cam with people detection and integration with Alexa (people detection) that exists I am gone if this is not fixed.
When/where was this? Do you have a link I can look at or reference about this? I usually keep up with most of the AMA’s they do, and I don’t recall this. WPA3 would be a nice option. Eventually, most things will have to switch to WPA3 as tech progression continues.
It is a long thread. I have been waiting for Jason to provide an update for a good while now. Since the v2 just came out with another release and I see he is active here, I thought I would provide a gentle reminder. With that said, here is his latest response in the thread I started long ago:
Short version, support for WPA 3 was said to be released but it never was and users are still waiting for it. I will have to see if I can find out where they are on that as I have not checked in a bit.
The flaw is in the cam Notifications Menu. The Person option is greyed-out, un-selectable.
Interestingly, the two cams with the flawed menu still send Person Notifications (their setting before updating.)
Functionally, there wouldn’t be an instance where I’d want to be notified of non-Person detections only. So not an issue, I guess, just interesting that one of the cams updated the Nofications menu differently.
