Let me try this again. I’ve typed all this up three times today, but it keeps getting deleted. Speculation is because I included a link to the Dash Cam thread, so trying it without the link.
I discussed this in the dash cam forum thread, but creating a new thread to create an “official” bug report.
If WiFi network that camera is connected go goes away and then restores, camera will not re-connect to WiFi until it is power cycled. It should attempt to re-connect after WiFi restores.
As mentioned in the other thread, I am planning on using one or more cameras in my pickup truck. Eventually I will have cellular based WiFi in the truck, but that is a ways off. In the mean time, I will have WiFi connectivity only when parked at home and the camera will record to the uSD card 24×7. Yesterday the camera was working properly when I left for work. Of course the camera lost connectivity with my home WiFi soon after I left. The status light originally went to alternating Blue / Yellow, and ended up as solid Yellow. 16 hours later, I drove back into strong range of my Wifi and noted that the WiFi did not connect. This was confirmed with my managed WiFi and also with my router (which also functions as a DHCP server). I have DHCP reservations for my Wyze cameras, so they should always get the same IP addresses. I left it alone overnight, and when I got up, confirmed that I could not ping the IP for the camera. When I went out to the truck, the status light was still solid yellow. I brought the camera into work, and redid the setup so that it would connect to one of our WiFi networks at work. After confirming that it was working properly, I turned off that WiFi. After a couple minutes, confirmed that my laptop, phone and the camera had all lost connectivity, then waited about 10 minutes, and turned the WiFi back on. Within a short time, both the laptop and phone had connected to the WiFi, but the camera did not. Waited about 10 minutes and then power cycled the camera. Shortly thereafter the camera connected to the WiFi. Confirmed that it was working properly, waited a few minutes and repeated the test with the same results.
Camera model: Wyze Cam v2
Firmware version: 18.104.22.168
