I have three of the Wyze Cam2 model, and so far I love them! Only one major issue, which involves micro SD cards.
I bought three 32 GB Kingston micro SD SDCS cards-at separate times-and all three appear to have failed after approximately one month of use.
To further troubleshoot the issue, I used an Adata 64 GB micro SD card in one of the cameras…it worked well but also stopped recording when it became full. Multiple attempts to format the card using the Wyze app failed. On the fourth reformat attempt, it worked. Strange, and worrisome!
The issue appears to be when the SD card becomes full. The camera stops recording and the micro SD card fails to reformat, using the Wyze app. After that, the micro SD card appears to completely fail (at least with the Kingston 32 GB micro SD cards).
I assumed it was the cards failing, but it seems strange that 3 cards, plus one from a different manufacturer, have not worked consistently, and have suffered similar issues.
Here’s what I’ve tried:
Power-cycling the cameras and removing/re-adding the devices in the Wyze app
Reformatting the micro SD cards with the Wyze app
Moving the micro SD cards to different Wyze cameras
Reformatting the micro SD cards using a Windows 7 laptop, Windows 10 desktop (cards not recognized, no way to reformat them in Windows)
Reformatting the micro SD cards using a digital camera (error message: SD card is locked)
As for method 4, neither Windows 7 nor 10 will even recognize the micro SD cards…I tested both computers with a micro SD card that had never been used in a Wyze camera, and it was recognized instantly and easily.
Method 5 didn’t work; the camera says the micro SD card is locked. I made sure the lockable switch on the card was in the unlocked position. Still no luck.
Anyone else suffering from this issue?
