Detect Wyze Cam v2 over the Network [not viewing video]
Looking for a way to detect if Wyze Cam is powered and online OR if someone has unplugged it.
Typically this is called “network monitoring” -but some people think this means viewing the video feed. I’m not interested in seeing the video via the network - just monitoring uptime and downtimes.
Wyze publishes a bunch of ports used - but so far I haven’t been able to monitor via those ports.
ICMP (ping) isn’t great because I want to monitor this externally across the WAN and forwarding ICMP packets isn’t ideal.
All I need is for the Wyze Cam to accept an incoming connection request on a specific port responding with an ACK or even SYN packet. - something!
Anyone found a way to monitor uptime? I asked Wyze Support but they didn’t understand the question and directed me to the forum. ( I think they thought I was taking about video streaming)
