Outdoor pan tilt zoom camera

V3 camera with pan abilty

V3 camera is great for outdoor viewing at night. Would like the ability to do panning the whole front yard. Currently using V2 with pan. V3 or later version with pan ability would make this the Cadilac of all outdoor cameras. The best of all worlds!

[Mod edit]. Merging this wishlist request with an existing wishlist item. Give it a vote to help it along!

Would be really cool if you guys had an outdoor Wyze Cam Pan.

Hopefully its quieter than my two Pan Cam V2s… Any movement of the Pan Cam V2’s would scare any wildlife away and/or alert any ‘intruder’ of the camera’s presence

I can’t believe how LOUD the Pan Cam V2 is when they move.

Status on this?

Wyze Cam Outdoor Pan, Tilt, Zoom mod. I have added a radio controlled camera pan and tilt device to my WCO. With the zoom from the tablet by using the finger spread motion on the screen, I now have Pan, Tilt and Zoom on my Wyze Cam Outdoor. The drawback is the pan and tilt device is not weatherproof, however it works great under the carport. The pan and tilt device is not an expensive one but it does serve its purpose.

Ring make an add-on pan and tilt for their static cam - works well. What did you use for the Wyze Cam?

I would love to have an outdoor Wyze Cam Pan. I would love to put one out to look in my yard for turtles and alligators. I go out every day looking to get photos/video of the gators and/or turtles swiming in the pond. It would be great to be able to see if in the pond before going out. Also like to check the yard before I take the dogs out. I currently just peek out the screen door before I open it to go out with them to make sure the coast is clear, but having a pan cam would be awesome!

If Wyze does this, they need to make sure it’s whisper quiet. If it’s as loud as my two Pan Cam V2’s, it’ll scare everything out of your Pond AND it’ll be clear in the area before you take your dogs out!

I’ve considered putting one of my Pan Cam V2’s on the ground level of a covered patio to see how my nightly run of Raccoons would react to it, but I don’t want to scare them off. Then again, the Rats and Mice the frequent the perimeter of the house… I would love for them to be scared off… hmmm, perhaps Wyze can make the AI recognize a RAT or MOUSE at ground level and emit an annoying noise to run them off…:slight_smile:

Scaring off rats or mice would be great too! We occasionally have issues with those as well, but haven’t in quite a while now though. I don’t have the original so have no idea how loud it is, but definitely need one for outdoors.

Now there is a good idea for a camera company! Rodent AI detection - with some sort of pan and tilt spray device. Also, all exterior cameras should have a Vivint style chirp option to deter intruders further.

Spray Water a stream of water at the offending target.

Wyze could tie it into one’s Sprinkler system somehow… to keep Dogs off of one’s lawn that keep depositing land mines in random places that they should not be.

Looks like this idea is already out there: https://gadgets-reviews.com/review/832-best-motion-activated-sprinklers.html

So… Wyze needs to pursue that market :slight_smile:

After they get the Wyze App to work on an iPad in Landscape mode that is

Outdoor camera with that works like the pan cam

I have the pan cam in my house and my business. I’m looking to put cameras outside my house and would love to find some that track motion like my pan cams

A weatherproof ptz solar powered (or wired) camera. Maybe a regular (not weatherproof) camera, but offer some type of clear weatherproof housing. This would protect the camera, but still give it the ability to pan 360 degrees unobstructed, as well as up/down views. An automatic AI zoom/follow feature would be icing on the cake!!

Outdoor Cam that Pans

I simply looking to buy an outdoor cam that will Pan as your indoor Cam will Pan and will work with the solar panel

Pan cam version for outdoors

Create an indoor/ outdoor version of the pan cam. The camera following people freeks them out and makes people think you are activly watching them. This is a great deterant in it’s self.

Why not add the Vivint style “peep” option too, when it detects a person?

Yes a PTZ camera from wyze woukd be great!! I am trying to move away from a higher cost video surveillance system as wyze is far more stable. But neither of my camera companies have a PTZ camera so i search for a compatible PTZ. This is top of my list with grandkids here and a pool setup i need as many eyes on the little ones as possible!

Wyze does make a PTZ camera, just not an outdoor one. However if you look on Amazon you can find these “weatherproof” covers for the wyze pan cam. I used one outdoors in the Midwest with rain, shine, and snow and the camera lasted for about a year before it finally died.

Yeah I have 2 v1s and 1 v2 of the Pan Cams, but they are not outdoor cameras and would like higher zoom. Not sure what is the zoom abilities of wyze cameras, not a lot of data on zoom.
