That is weird. I do know that in their early days Wyze MAC’s were pre-registered to another company before Wyze reserved their own registered MAC addresses, but that was years ago. It’s possible some of the early orders of V2’s could’ve had this though.
I have to ask…if the MAC address is completely different and the company name is totally different, and it says wired instead of wireless…are you absolutely sure that the device you’re looking at in the router is actually the V2 camera in question?
I could possibly accept that the MAC is tied to another company, that is not abnormal at all for ODM products anyway, or really any IOT product of any kind…but for your router to think it’s wired instead of wireless, that indicates a bug with the router since that information is solely the job of the router to determine.
Altogether I’d recommend at least rebooting the router, maybe consider resetting it to factory settings if it is bugging out on how a device is connecting to it.
Anyway, to answer your question about V2s, it is my understanding that they stopped manufacturing new V2’s since the V3’s became the new flagship product, but V2’s are not discontinued, nor have they lost their support. They are even still available for purchase on the Wyze website despite V3’s being available for more than a year. They also have the potential for some AI features that haven’t been available with some other cams (such as Sound AI detections that the V3’s haven’t even been able to test yet). So definitely not being purged. They just barely did an official EOL (end of life) for the V1 cams this year, and if they were planning to get rid of the V2’s soon I would’ve expected them to announce EOL for them at the same time, but they didn’t, so it probably won’t happen for a while. But regardless, I can’t see them intentionally start using someone else’s MAC range while they phase it out when they already have so many registered for themselves.
That is an interesting thing you found. I wouldn’t worry too much about the router assuming the MAC is for another company since that is something that happens fairly frequently with network cards in my experience, but I would still go check an independent MAC registration site such as one of the following:
And go enter in at least first few character of your MAC address to see who that range is registered to.
Does the MAC in the Router Match what is showing in the Wyze App for the Cam? And that is different from the MAC on the sticker for the Cam?
How long have you had the cam for?
If it were me I’d even consider seeing if deleting the device from the app and flashing the firmware fixed it or not. Maybe testing it on another router and see if it’s the same on that router too.
The main thing that leads me to wonder if it is the Router glitching is that it thinks the cam is wired to it…that shouldn’t be the cam causing that issue…and if the router is glitching with that, it seems reasonable to wonder if the rest of the inconsistencies aren’t related to the router.
