Does Sense need a Wyze Camera or just 5v power supply

Does the Wyze Sense require a Wyze Cam or can it be simply powered with a USB cable?

WYZE Sense requires that a bridge be plugged into the back of the camera, so short answer is yes a cam is required.


As @Jason21271 says the Bridge module integrates with the software in a Wyze camera so the camera is required.

it could probably be a little less subtle. but it is on the Wyze sense page. lol

it should have been marked more bold.

The Wyze Sense Bridge uses the WiFi capability in the camera to communicate its events. The bridge is not designed to function when connected to any other host.
