I could not agree more to the above request. The only other thing that I like to add is that you should be able to configure the wifi channel on the base station.
How about enabling the base station to be linked with the Doorbell, it would make it more robust and versatile. That way video captured could be safely stored. Another thing I noticed is that even though the Doorbell is priced low, most manufacturers offer live notifications (not necessarily after pressing the button on the doorbell). When you add the CAM PLUS subscription to enable people detection or live view it ends up costing much more in the long run.
The Doorbell could be immensely improved by connecting it to a Base Station, that would enable the recording of events with people or movement detection and enhance security. I think the same philosophy applied for other Wyze products with the CAM PLUS should be applied here, but people or movement detection should be free with this product, you could charge to expand the 12 seconds limit
on the cloud and other features but movement detection for a video doorbell is key, besides if it is connected to a base station and since both devices are always powered, continuous recording or event recordings on the micro SD card would be greatly welcomed!
Best regards, and thanks for the great and affordable products you have launched!
All Cams and devices could be, to lessen the cost of cloud storage. Why release a base station for one cam then come out 2 months later with v3 that don’t? And please allow for an USB hardrive to be plugged in and all cams to write to it for on premise recordings.
I really hope they do this, I don’t want 30 bases… Please Wyze, would also help on the WIFI.
Allow the doorbell to connect to base station and use the memory card for continuous recording.
It would be nice to be able to connect the Wyze Cam V2 and V3 to the base station. This would allow you to extend the range of where you can put the cameras … especially for V3 since it can go outside. My Wyze Cam Outdoor works well on my shed because I have the base station in my garage and it can connect well to it. However, putting my V3 on the shed is spotty as it has to connect to my router directly. Being able to split the difference with the base station really helps.
If you’ve got cabling for the base station already, why not just add a $20 router / access point at that location to extend your WiFi generally? It would not only help the cameras but ALL WiFi usage in that region of your property.
You don’t need a new Wyze product to do that.
I really want this to happen please wyze
I already have the base station because I bought a WyzeCam Outdoor. It is already acting as a wireless extender if you use it in wifi mode. So, why not allow other Wyze products to connect through it?
Fair point. The wireless operation for the base is a newer feature and I wasn’t always aware of it.
I would very much like being able to use the base station as a second connection point for my other wyzecams.
For example: I have a garage that is too far from my main house wireless signal, but i have wired ethernet going out there, if I connected the base station out there, I could put my v3 cam out there as well.
+1 for the Hub using the base station for PAN/CAMv3, and to access the SD content of the base station via NFS or similar protocol.
I’ve been after them for something like this for awhile now…
I want to purchase an additional base station. I am told by WYZE that one cannot buy a base station separately. How bizzare is that?
Looking for exactly the same thing.
Cant find a way to oficially buy a new base station (to replace my actual one which failed me horribly after firmware update)
For some bizzare reason they will not sell the base station alone. So if a base station goes down, for example your dog eats it, you have to buy a new camera. Doesn’t make a lot of sense.

SELL THE BASE STATION INDIVIDUALLY!!! There are many reasons to do this. The largest of which is that the range for a single base station isn’t large enough for the 4 outdoor cameras to all use the same one.
Well said. Not selling them separately seems most odd. Get a grip WYZE.
This should be a top priority for Wyze, or at least make a separate base to replace the outdoor cam base that also supports the other devices, i’d buy it instantly
