Wyze Cam V3 filming through glass at nighttime

Does the new Cam V3 use the same red infrared lights that are on V2 for nighttime shooting that if against a window blind out what’s being recorded? Wondering if the new cameras are better for placing against a window. As always THANK U

The V3s are WAY better for window installation. The starlight sensor helps with the night vision even with the IR lights off.
Hers a picture of the V3 in the window:

Here’s a V2:


Fantastic and thank u. I thought it would be a world of difference.

It sure is!
Also, the black and white night vision without IR lights is much better as well.

(Looks the same as above)


To answer that question the v3 has 8 ir led’s, 4 are the style of the v2 and the other 4 are the style in the pan. You can use either set or none. As @Brlepage shows using none you will still get an improvement as the starlight sensor will make use of the minimal ambient light. All the v3’s I have outside have night vision turned off and I can see clearly.


When I bought my last V3, I also bought a window mount bracket as an accessory item from Wyze. So, yes, it can be used that way. I think you can even use the ‘near’ IR LEDs for this application. I didn’t need to, because I have enough light outside that Starlight does the trick for me.
