Wyze Cam V3 has a 30 second delay

I am using the Wyze cam V3 with my home WiFi and an Android phone. I have a fast Google Fiber WiFi. The picture on my phone has a 30 second delay so it is useless for a front door camera. Is there anything I can do to remove that delay?

Does the product named “Wyze Video Doorbell Pro” have a delay? I need a real-time front door camera.

Just clarify, when you click on Live View does it take 30 seconds to initially load or when viewing Live View is there a 30 second delay from the real time motion?

Good question. I watch the live feed in the Wyze App and there is a clock on the screen, the clock and the live video is always 30 seconds behind the true time which I can watch on a separate phone or computer. This means people knock on my front door and there is nothing on the live video for 30 seconds when I then see them knock on the door. I need a front door camera with no delay.

My Live Stream lags about 1 second behind real time. Not sure why your delay is 30 seconds. Here are my firmware and App versions if it helps.

V3 firmware
Android App 2.44.5 (330)
IOS App 2.44.5 (3)

Test your cams by producing movement while you are in the frame live streaming on your phone. Wave your arms. How long from your wave till you see it on the live stream? That is the true latency.

Your timestamp on the cams may just be 30s off. Open each cam, Settings, Advanced Settings, scroll down, Sync Time. See if that realigns the time of the timestamp to the time on your phone. Make sure your phone is also properly updating its time from the carrier network correctly and isn’t off by 30s.

That is what happens with mine which I just bought. It takes 25 to 30 sec to show any action while you are in live mode watching. Don’t think is a sync problem because time varies and accumulates various actions that play after the actors are way gone. I just bought this cam pan and is with latest firmware and software. They are useless this way and I can only send back unless wyze has come up with a solution. I have a similar problem on my V2 cameras but much less in the order of 8 to 10 sec and that is with the plus plan. that is why I got rid of all my plans they charge but don’t deliver. I got an Amazon Blinky as a gift from Amazon and it does not have this problem. Its 2 years old (I assume now they are even better) and the lowest technology in the totem pole.

I believe this is a bug all wyze cameras have and its being well hidden with no serious discussions of how and when will they fix it. They continue selling these cameras and advertising how amazing they are and if you buy them then you are stuck. You are right I also just bought cam V3 pan for the front door and its useless. The mail man drives in my circular driveway drops the mail and leaves before the live view will show it. USELESS! I will return and look somewhere else. I’m only sorry I recommended so many of my friends to Wyze before I realized this was a problem everyone is having and wyze is not talking about it!
