I just got a couple of the Wyze outdoor cameras. One bout 8 feet above the driveway dead center over the lane I pull my car out using. I have backed out a few times and got a recording the entire time while I backed the 50 feet to the street… I can barely read the front license plate on my car at all. Even in bright sunlight, clear day car barely moving. There are artifacts that cause something like vertical grey shadows. It doesn’t help that the event player n either phone or tablet (Android) is almost impossible to manipulate with any precision. At the very best, car about 10 feet away and pausing the playback just perfectly, I can barely make out three of the 8 digits (remember, I know what they should be), though I can see the rest. Any further away and it is a total waste of time.
I am not sure if trying a different player for the video would help. Perhaps frame by frame advance would help. In any case, I would not depend on these cameras for license plate IDs under anything other than perfect situations. Probably not even then.
