Dear Fellow Wyze Community Members,
I am sharing my progress on my 100% solar powered Wyze Cam Pan. I have decided to power Wyze Cam Pan via solar power as the nearest outlet is around 600ft away from the gate where it’ll be placed. I will be installing it this Mother’s Day weekend, so far progress is good. I did a lot of research before purchasing the equipment.
- All equipment arrived (all purchased from Amazon).
- Setup & tested all equipment.
- Installed system.
The camera will not be connected to the internet, only when the phone I use passes by with the hotspot online.
I tested the solar panel, connected and setup all wiring, triple checked the Wyze Cam Pan, works perfectly. I will be installing it at our property’s gate entrance in order to record 24/7, with a 256 GB Micro SD card (hoping it works, I have seen others say it does), offline, and everyday once I pass by, my hotspot will connect so I can review the footage.
- Install system. (TO-DO)
