That’s great. Standard reply from Wyze doesn’t help solve the issue. If you look at the uploaded videos on the wyze app that people have uploaded…most are outdoors or are aimed outdoors. I’m inclined to believe most people are using outdoors as it would be useless during evening hours behind glass with the night infrared sensor.
There are also many outdoor covers being sold by other vendors to help solve most peoples outdoor setups…although it doesn’t solve the moisture, humidity, or condensation problem found outdoors.
Even RING gave the same answer for their exterior lights/pir/cam setup. Once I talked to them and described my location, they immediately declared it was considered outdoors due to possible condensation (no AC or dehumidifier) and every answer they gave to my list of questions precluded/started with “Our products are designed for indoor use only and cannot be used outside, humid, or wet locations”…and then they’d answer my questions. Again that was for their outdoor driveway lights with pir and camera setup. Really lame answer from a bigger company such as RING. I hope Wyze doesn’t offer an outdoor solution and then say its not designed for moisture or humidity. That would be lame.
My setup is indoors(no rain, no sun, no snow, but with water movement and holes in floor where ducks and other critters get in.
So far I had to disable the cam movement sensing and move the pir sensors to the floor aimed upward. They notify now when ducks get in to nest. I will be testing a siren setup to a wyze power outlet to see if that works. Sadly, it should scare the ducks away along with anyone else that tries getting in.
BTW, my indoor cameras are also turned off for motion, since the normal sunlight changes of the day trigger motion alerts. So, even the indoor camera setups have flaws in the real world.
