Hello, my first dabble with Wyze and I already experiencing difficulties.
Let me try and explain.
We have quite a big property and to have our Wi-Fi reach every corner we have a setup with 3 routers, One is directly connected to our modem, the other two are used to extend the network. The routers are Apple Airport Extremes. I realize they they are getting older and Apple no longer makes them but they have been working fine and I prefer not to swap them out just yet.
Last Friday I installed a Wyze Cam V2 in our main hallway to try these cams out. We mainly use it to monitor the hallway and front door.
Installation went fine, so did the setup. I was quite surprised that everything worked out of the box.
During the weekend we started experiencing random disconnects. I suspected that my wifi setup was the culprit and after some reading I disabled the 5Ghz network, only leaving the 2.4Ghz operational. This sped up the connection to the cam for some reason.
Yesterday I started getting more problems with my wifi. I randomly could not connect to the internet anymore with other devices and only a hard reboot of both my modem and all routers solved it temporarily.
I checked my wiring, modem etc… and everything seems fine so I suspect my Wifi is acting up again.
So I powered down the cam for a while and the problem seems to have disappeared.
Now my question: Could it be that the camera is transmitting so much data that my wifi setup is unable to handle it?
I have to add that I had the cam set to HD. At this moment I am testing it in Standard Definition to see if this makes a difference. So far so good, but I am not convinced yet.
