We bought the Wyze system with base station and three outdoor cameras 3 weeks ago and have been plagued with unpredicatable unacceptable battery life. The advertised life is 3-6 months. We can’t even get 3-6 days.
Yesterday with all cameras low, I charged them all to 100%, and set them out together on our sun room table facing our back yard with trees, 10 feet from the base station using WiFi.
When we went to bed they were all above 95% with Signal strength: 2 bars. They were showing on my iPad iive video.
This morning camera batteries were 75%, 0, 25%.
All had Night Vision: auto, Night Vision IR mode: off
All Battery usage live stream < 1 all others 0.
Motion detection off except for the Camera at 75% charge!
I really want this to work. But I can’t abide the battery issues. I have a week to decide whether to return the system.
Any ideas on how this bizarre behavior could be?
