I want to pick the brains of experts in the community.
I want to fit outdoor cams for my house, and I’m trying to find out which one I should go for - Wyze Cam v3 or Wyze outdoor Cam? Can anyone shed some light on which would be the one they would choose? The outdoor cams are being planned to be installed for a house (in outdoor areas such as in the roof, in the tree, etc).
Thanks in advance!
I would recommend an Outdoor cam ONLY for places that require a battery (or a PIR sensor is critical). For all powered outdoor applications I’d use a V3. Powering an Outdoor cam outdoors will void the warranty, as it will not be waterproof. The V3 remains waterproof when powered outdoors.
V3 Cam - Outdoor wire-powered camera. Wyze’s current flagship camera that upgraded the V2 Cam to a faster processor, more frames per second, wider view, starlight sensitivity, and outdoor capability. Has a siren. Can do 2 wavelengths of night vision. Can save to a local SD card 24 hours a day, giving you the chance to review any part of the last 3-8 days.
Outdoor Camera - Battery-powered outdoor camera that is only recommended for situations where you cannot power a camera. Also has a PIR sensor, but you can use a Sense motion sensor to trigger the other models of cameras if their normal pixel motion detection isn’t enough for you (note the new Sense V2 motion sensors are still hard to get). Can be used in no-Internet situations. Separate Base station required for every 4 cameras. This one has not been upgraded to starlight sensitivity yet. Does not record 24 hours a day to SD card without a lot of effort and a soon dead battery. Live streaming must be limited to save battery power.
I agree with Newshound, The V3 cam is far better than the Outdoor Battery powered cameras.
The WCO is too problematic in my opinion.
