Firmware 4.9.6.144 & Wyze Sense Question

Does anyone know if the new Wyze v2 firmware update fixed all the contact sensor and motion sensor issues? I had to revert back to 4.9.5.111 a long time ago to get things to work correctly, and it’s asking me now to update to 4.9.6.144. I updated all my cameras so far that don’t have Wyze Sense bridges attached to them, but so far none of the ones that do.

I’ve had similar problems with sensors in the past and haven’t updated to this firmware yet either. I was waiting to see if the were any reports of problems.

I upgraded to .144 and sensors stopped working. Reverted.

Thanks for the info!

Hello

All my sensors are offline, I’m on my 3rd bridge trying to get things to work.

I assume you’re flashing the firmware using "demo.bin"on the SD Card.

I flashed firmware awhile ago and bricked a v2 camera.

You haven’t had any problems flashing ?

Thanks

4.9.6.144 is working fine for me. Before this version I kept reverting back to 4.9.5.111.

I went back to version 98 and they have been rock solid.

There should be a newer v2 firmware version available, can you check for a firmware update?

For reference, here are the release notes I pulled up for .144

All sensors are offline and bridge LEDs are yellow. Removed bridges, formatted SD cards, reset cams, deleted cams from app, deleted app, reinstalled app, add cams back to app, added bridges = sensors back online for a small amount of time before dropping offline again.
