I have a set of Q-Sec cctv bullet cameras that I plan on replacing with Wyze V3. I don’t want to run new wires, rather I’d prefer to use existing wires from my old cctv camera if I could find a suitable solution.
I found a 12v 5a to 5V 5a connector on ebay for cheap: https://ebay.to/3y7FpyX
Although it powers the Wyze cam, it makes the Wyze light flash constantly…I am also unable to connect to the Wyze cam via internet . All this makes me think Wyze isn’t liking the power source.
One thing to note is that the power source is sending 5V 5a where as the specs on Wyze cam calls for 5V 1a.
Does anyone know if this is what’s causing Wyze to flash and not connect to the phone? if so, is there anything I can do to fix it? I found a LOT of threads similar to this (how to connect to Wyze using old cctv wires), but no one has answered how they fixed the issue.
