5Ghz compatible?
WPA-3 compatible?
2.5K video?

The floodlight pro I recently set up is on 5ghs band. Doesn’t seem to make much difference though.

Does the v4 actually have a WiFi 6 chip? Meaning it can communicate using 802.11ax?

Or are we saying it is compatible with WiFi 6 routers, which is obviously yes, since 6 is compatible with previous generations of WiFi; even with older WiFi protocols.

The specifications on the v4 only list 802.11b/g/n and 2.4 GHz. It doesn’t say “802.11ax” which makes it a WiFi 6 device.

Ultimately, have we been able to improve the range and bandwidth/airtime utilization when compared with previous gen cameras?

Yes.

The only reference I’ve found:

AMA?!?! Has Shanee been warned about me yet? :rofl: I’m going to start posting a bunch of questions right now!

No window mounts? Correct?

Won’t fit OG window mount.

I have two V4s coming, not sure what to do with them yet and losing an OG to a support gift card, so down one camera when I return it.

Guess I have to buy another OG for the window for the OG returning to Wyze. Scratch head on V4 locations until window mounts come out from China.:thinking:

How does that fit? I have Amazon OG mounts and the dimensions of an OG are different than a V4.

Wyze Window Mount fits Wyze Cam v3, Wyze Cam v3 Pro and Wyze Cam v4. Wyze claims their window mount also fits Cam OG and Cam OGT, but I checked and it’s a fairly loose fit.

I have no idea about 3rd party window mounts for any Wyze cam model.

Wyze 4 looks good but unfortunately I am not on Wyze’s target list, even though I own 9 cameras, plus old sensors. I don’t want to use cloud storage and I want/need RTSP, which only is available for some of my cameras. Products are great except old door sensors and motion detector no longer work. I am currently searching for alternatives.

I didn’t realize they didn’t work til weeks later. I am on the hunt as well. Not sure I like the idea of buying a hub when the old sensors fed off of the nearest cam.
