Feature Request – Lens tube for mounting through door

wyze-cam

#1

A possible better place to mount a camera is firmly affixed to the INSIDE of a door, like the old-fashioned peephole lens.

But the field of view on the present camera is too wide to do so.

Can a lens tube be added so the wide angle lens is unblocked?

Also, would like to be able to have a much narrower field of view for some locations; screw-on interchangeable lens ? …

I would love to have this feature/option as well.

The door viewer cameras such as “Ring” and other similar doorbell cameras are not an option in rental units. Our building does not allow residents to place objects on the outside of the apartment door. Additionally, theft is a problem in my neighborhood. Doorbell cameras are easy targets for thieves or vandals.

Therefore, the best solution is to have a camera lens that looks like a peephole viewer from outside my apartment door and a Wyze cam on the inside of my door. I had to MacGyver my Wyze cam so that it is attached to my door from the inside. It sort of work, but the video is just a small, blurry image on my app.

Ok, this isn’t getting a lot of love but the apartment & condo market is a big one with lots of traffic around from strangers/neighbors. Really would like a peephole solution but hard to do that without a bigger object outside the door since I want camera, and motion sensor, and IR leds. Those can’t all peer through the peephole. But as small as possible outside with bulk inside with a wire and mounting screws/tube to connect them. Others make this but WYZE seems good at doing it better! Would like always on somehow since motion triggering to turn on full camera results in missed initial motion and sometimes the full motion. So a good inside battery that is easy to recharge. Either with USB plugged in every few days, or easy pop out rechargeable pack to swap and recharge.
