The Wyzecam C1 that watches my dog while I am at work, I recently noticed it did not have functional night vision, it had a range of about one foot otherwise pitch black. I never really used that camera in NV mode so I didn’t notice the defect over the last 30 days I guess.
The other wyzecam I own has pretty decent night vision, in a pitch black room. The bad one wouldn’t make the click when switching to NV, so I figured the IR cut filter must not be working, maybe stuck. I gave it a light Fonzie tap and the night vision started working!
Unfortunately, during daylight hours, the picture was a trippy pinkish purple hue; the IR filter must be stuck open instead of closed from that tap. I opened up the camera tonight. (I can say the case is tricky to get apart the first time until you figure out how to pop it open) The IR filter/lens assembly has a small pigtail that simply wasn’t plugged in on my defective camera, plugged it in and everything works normally now. Just wanted to share this little success, my wife and dog were unimpressed.
*don’t take apart your wyzecam, it has a warranty, so don’t void it like I did.
