Antenna upgrade

I’m not sure if this has been done or tested before. I recently voided the warranty on one of my cameras and changed the antenna out for an 8dBI antenna. Will test to see if this helped with range when I have time and when it’s not raining.

Ignore the first picture. Sorry.

I have a mental image of my poor little camera slowly falling over backwards! Let us know how it goes!

Not done it with a wyze cam yet but I have with an Eufy cam



This is the range difference, yellow is hub, purple is stock dropout, red modded dropout

Is it plug & play on wyze or does it require soldering?

A little drilling and cutting but no solder.

This is the antenna/adapter I ordered.

Holy ****! That looks like a quarter mile!

Can you show where the old antenna plugs in/where the new one goes? If there is no soldering I’d love to try this out!

Looks super easy thank you so much! Is the casing pretty easy to crack open?

It’s not bad will need a thin flathead or something similar plus a small Phillips for the screws.

Looks impressive. Hope it works as you intended.

I’m looking at this photo and I see 2 circles, 1 for the antenna and the other(2) wires for power, is that correct?

Thanks…

No power needed for antenna
Circles show new antenna plug & socket where it goes

Thanks, that makes sense now…
