Longshot, but worth a try. Uncheck “Wyze Cam Pan” from the beta projects list (Home > About > Beta Program > Edit), hit “Save” and back out of the app. Go back in, check “Wyze Cam Pan”, hit “Save” and see if the firmware update shows up.
But to be more accurate, how’s about I check the status of the checkmark in the first place before I chirp. Through all the app uninstalls and reinstalls because of version conflicts, somehow my Pan got unchecked. Never wooda thunk it.
On v2, still a mysterious time-warp through cloud whenever there is a CP-based detection…
Note the bird flying in, you would expect to see the bird “fly out”… Time is 14:38:55 and suddenly bird disappears and time is 14:38:59 with a 4s (or so) time loss. You can tell once time “resumes” that there is also a notable delay by looking at the leaves/branches in slow-mo before it fully goes back to normal speed.
Actually on .1409 v2 cam beta - before I could get .1433, one of my two cams suddenly went offline. As an experienced user I tried all the typical steps to restore its connection, but every time it failed with error-90. Finally frustrated, I flashed last fw released .1002 and it reset and connected fine. Not sure why it suddenly disconnected and glitched on .1409 - only issues I noticed: it feels warmer than I recall but not alarmingly hot, after flashing fw it stopped recognizing the 32 GB SD card, same one I used to flash the FW, same as SD that was in it originally, tried a 16gb and it read it fine, re formatted 32 and tried again, toggle to record to it would not stay on but it did see card was there so formatted it in the cam and now it’s working to let me toggle on the SD recording. As is typical wyze - strange behavior. Not sure if I’ll bother to update this cam to .1433 or leave it on .1002 for now.
Gonna throw it out there, but do you use any custom DNS or DoT (DNS-over-TLS)? I used both set on my router and I guess the Wyze cameras didn’t want to play nicely with it. Because of the firmware’s “security enhancements”, I had to perform a factory reset and remove any custom DNS records because the newer firmware on the cameras didn’t want to play nicely anymore with my settings.
That is a good question, I have not received an answer to this one from Wyze yet… haha… I’ve had various cameras work/not work with OFFLINE or “forget wifi” symptoms with various/same firmware revisions with same product lines. When I did remove my custom DNS/DoT settings, all of them worked (more or less, other than BETA bugs), so certainly, that did ‘cure’ my issues.
Other than during hardware beta testing a couple yrs ago, I’ve never before experienced the wifi connection problems that so many others have reported over the years. You’d think by now that beta fw would be stable when it comes to connections. I rarely ever get any replies from support and if I do it’s just the same old script.
