I manage 9 Wyze Cams and 2 Wyze Pans at our church. It seems like about every day I open the Wyze App, usually after noticing I haven’t seen any alerts in a while, to find that all 11 cameras are OFF. When I check the Playback on several of them (all but 2 record continuously to a card), I see that all recording stopped at exactly the same time, so it seems that something is causing the cameras to turn off in sync. It has occured at different times of the day. Today’s was 8:38 AM.
The cameras are all connected to the same WiFi in the building. I had someone check to see if the WiFi was turning off or doing something regularly, but they found nothing. I’m not sure why a wifi interruption would shut down all the cameras at the same time anyway. I guess a power surge or outage might turn them all off, but they could come back on when the power does.
Often after I turn them back on, I see that the 2 WyzeCams that are set up behind glass, where I have the Night Vision IR Lights set to OFF, those lights are ON even though the setting indicates OFF. I toggle that on and off and it corrects itself.
A few have registered no microSD card inserted and I’ve had to re-format the cards to get the cams to recognize them.
The last 2 issues may not be related but also new problems, so I include them here in case they are related somehow. These cameras were purchased and installed at different times. All firmware upgrades have been run.
