Wyze cam v3 pan real power draw?

Does anyone know what the real world power consumption is on the v3 pan? I plan to daisy chain a handful with heavy landscape wiring to avoid voltage drop. I’m just unsure how many watts or amps they pull so I can size a 5v power supply correctly.

@R.Good tested the Pan V3 on a current tester and posted it here:


The thing about the PAN is it is like a V3 when just sending video. However, when you add in 2x motors and a possible siren because something is happening, you’d better budget a full 2A for at least the one you plan to demand that sort of activity from.

If there is insufficient current, then the voltage to the camera will drop, and the camera will reboot when you most need it.
