Car Security with Wyze

I am in the middle of upgrading my Mobile (car) security. My build will include a metal box to secure a wyzecam v2 to my back window, This will be secured in the box and locked down to the “Tether Anchor” system. This locked down box will prevent both removal of the camera and also protect the Micro card if the car is tampered with.

My house was broken into years ago when my father lived here and I have installed rotating wyze cams inside and one box type in the window with the iR lights off.

This alerted me to a person parked out front at 3:45 am trying to pop car doors. He did get in but took off as I put on an outside light.

Purchased the Wyze sense package and added the bridge to the camera and wyze sensor to my car door. (blocked by the window frame from outside view) now every time the car door opens or is left open n front of the house I get an instant alert.

Added an IR light outside.

Plans for the car is to install a Wireless Mini Portable Travel Router, Pocket, WiFi Repeater Bridge, set it up to repeat xfinitywifi, set up the camera to the router portal page.

This should then allow the camera to record as usual to card when not in range of an xfi hotspot, but when the car is anywhere near a xfi hotspot, to connect live and send alerts.

This should allow a mobile webcam in my car, with door sensors (will have to add a bridge kit to my car, and with the extra sensors I can also add one inside my trunk so I will get an alert if the trunk is open.

will update as the build progresses.

Very cool usage. On a side note, have you thought about moving to a different neighborhood? LOL.
