These camera have [Mod Edit] reception over WiFi. I have tried everything under the sun. I have worked in IT for over 20 years. I have a Netgear Nighthawk main router. It wasn’t enough. Bough the new WiFi 6 version, still no go. Got 2 cheap $50 TP-Links. Now and finally got the Wyze app semi stable.
RTSP is “okay,” but not great. Their Wyze Plus service is useless. Went to use it one day and had no video for like a whole week, because these cameras don’t stay connected unless you spend $1000 on network equipment.
My final setup:
Main router is the WiFi6 Nighthawk.
1 of the $50 TP links is connected to it as a separate network and therefore my WiFi 6 Nighthawk is the WAN Port.
The older WiFi 5 Nighthawk is connected the the 1st TP-Link as a Access Point only and then the 2nd TP connects to it as an Access Point.
4 routers total, the 3 are a separate network just for the Wyze Cams, nothing else but them and the PC for the RSTP is on that network. No CAMs are more then maybe 25 ft away from each Access Point and if you check their signal? They all show 0 of 3 bars. I have all 4 2G networks on different channels, used an app to check my area for channel congestion and none of it matter. Cam can be right next to the router, one is, not even 3 feet away. Still not signal. Tried the External Antenna hack, made no difference.
In the end, get what you pay for, cheap $20-30 camera limited to a 2.5GHz network. Next time. I will go PoE and spend more on the cameras. These weren’t worth the time and effort even with the cost and they can’t event make the RTSP a main feature, only Beta Firmware… Cancelling my CAM Pro subs on all 11 cameras as soon as the subs expire. Waste of money. And, support, useless. They can make any claim they want about it being my or your network, it isn’t. Not with how much money in equipment and time I’ve spent configuring these routers, and this is ONLY a 1 story 1400 sq ft house. Before these cameras, 1 router handled the whole house and neighbors across the street can see my network!
