Outdoor pan tilt zoom camera

Q:

I have several of WYZE cams around the house but use others outside.
When will you have a weather proof Cam for outside use? I have a Pan Cam out under our porchroof and it seems to work well so far - made it through the Colorado winter, but have other areas that aren’t as protected.

The outdoor camera is supposed to be the next product released. It’s in user beta testing now and should be soon (months?). The camera will be built for outdoors and also has a built in rechargeable battery but will also run while plugged into the charging USB cable. That’s about all anyone that isn’t a Wyze employee or a beta tester knows right now.

PTZ outdoor cameras in the lower price range are pretty much non existent and there is a reason for that.
I’m not saying that wyze cannot come up with something , but it would be very difficult to bring it in with a price people are accustomed to from wyze

I like the new wyze-cam (battery-outdoor) that will be coming out soon, but I would like to have an outdoor version of the wyze-cam-pan.

I like the idea of a Pan/Tilt/Zoom Outdoor Camera! Not sure how Wyze would go about that though…

The new outdoor camera does not have the ability to scan like the Pan Cam. So disappointed in this. I would like the ability to move the camera remotely to view a larger area.

I agree, but perhaps Wyze could add value by providing some out-of-the-box features that other PTZs don’t? Such as AI, free recording, enhanced motion capture / follow with zoom, etc?

Any plans to launch an outdoors PTZ cam soon?

It would be great if Wyze offered a Solar powered outdoor wifi PTZ camera option like reolink and some other companies.

Any plans to create and add a PTZ Dome Camera to the products … similar to the Foscam PTZ cameras?

Also any update for Apple HomeKit?

In for this again to keep the idea fresh. It’s what I’m holding out for. Even though my home is fenced, it is large and I have too many blind spots on the eastern and western sides of my home to put 1 cam on each side. I’d need 2 for clearest coverage or 1 very high up (so motion detection wouldn’t be great) so I’d like to put a camera that can at least patrol or that I can move if needs be. I don’t mind if it is wired but solar + battery would be awesome.

Awesome idea

I like the idea of an outdoor PTZ, I once sent some videos of my gardens to family members. I thought that a PTZ web cam would be great for them the long on and scan through my yard whenever they want, I also envisioned PTZ pavilions in nature areas and historic sites. People would log on to a camera from wherever then PTZ the scenery. Of course there would have to be a lot of cameras. Currently available cameras are bulky and expensive. It would be great if Wyze could come up with a PTZ in the Wyze Cam Outdoor form factor.

It isn’t difficult to find outdoor pan/tilt cameras for under $50 on Amazon, but while I have two of those, I can’t speak to the quality as yet. (I’ve been waiting for both cooler weather and time to install either. The former is here, but the latter is being taken up by more pressing projects that were also waiting for the former).

I bought a cheap one and it worked okay. But I really like Foscam! Nice, solid camera and great app interface. Solid picture and sound, good night vision.

No, not the cheapest!

An outdoor pan / tilt camera. Powered by solar or USB.
