Great suggestions guys. I’ll need them because guess what, new camera is doing it too. Set it up Monday. Tuesday was fine. Wednesday, it moved. Except this time instead of overnight, it moved during the afternoon. And instead of resetting to the left it turned slightly to the right - so not a reset position. Ugh.
First image is the designated camera poition. Second is when it turned on its own:
So it’s not the camera. Something about that location. Here’s what I am going to try next time I’m there:
- Plug it in to a different outlet. Maybe there is something about that outlet.
- Switch to a different network. I have two set up. Main one and then an wifi signal extender one. Three cameras, including the problem on are on the extender network. The other two are fine - nary a problem. Foyer cam, the problem child, might be close enough to the router to operate on the main signal without needing to be on the extender signal. I’ll check.
I am also wondering if the problem might be associated with my father’s security system signal. Yesterday was the first day he left the house during the day- thereby activating the alarm during the afternoon. Which maybe why the cam moved for the first time during the afternoon. I noticed on the footage that the camera was fine all day. Then my father left the house. Next image the camera had activated by the sound of my father activating the security system after he had come home. That was the first image where the camera had turned.
If none of my options work, I will try the suggestions of setting a signal way point. I don’t care as much if the the camera moves, as long as it moves back to its designated position. It is so tedious having to reposition the camera every other day.
And I am going to the wishlist section and beg for an option to lock the camera position. So even if the camera gets some external input to move, it will be locked into position and unable to. Please Wyze. Pretty please with sugar on top.
