Thanks! Looks good.

Any updates on an outdoor camera? For those that installed the pan cam or wyze cam, Hows the IR at night?

For those in the know…
Is there any chance for the outdoor camera release date sometime in June?

I’m not in the know, but with the news

I wouldn’t want to plan on it.

So the outdoor camera is reliant on Maxdrive?

no, outdoor cam doesn’t need MaxDrive. It uses a separate base station/hub.

No, the point is that they had written the max drive was targeted for a Q2 release. Now 1/3 of the way through Q2 it is put off indefinitely.

Who knows what may all of a sudden prevent the release of an outdoor/weatherproof Wyze cam?

may be it for the near future.

All I can say is that the issue that is delaying the MaxDrive is not possible to cause delay for the Outdoor Cam.

I have 5 Wyze, 2 Pan and 3 small ones, all outside, purchased protective cases for all, installed under eaves for protection from elements, what needs to be taken into consideration is wifi signal strength, if you’re relying in your indoor wifi to power them sufficiently, you’ll be disappointed. I bought an outdoor wifi antenna for 40 bucks, now running all 5 on HD setting.

We don’t have a public date for the outdoor camera at this point but we are making progress on it. I don’t know if it will be ready for June, though.

I have a Wyze Cam v2 and a Cam Pan outside in Wisconsin. I purchased some housings from Amazon and they held up great over the summer and winter. I did remove them when temps hit -40 outside but they were good to go in the -5 to 100 degree ranges, including rain and snow. Will I replace them when Wyze launches an outdoor cam? Maybe. The pan/tilt is a great feature to have on the outside of my house.

Could you provide a link for the the housings you like?

I use these protective covers also. I’ve left mine outside all frosty winter. We didn’t go below -20 maybe -30 with windchill at one point and I’ve not had any issues at all.

I’m new to the community so I’m wondering if the outdoor Wyze cam is still in the pipeline, since the post originated ~6 months ago? If so, is the design for the outdoor Wyze cam pan or stationary?

Yes. It is in #roadmap and “in-development”, as opposed to #wishlist and “maybe later”. The titles in the #wishlist and #roadmap categories have the status information in them. I recommend visiting this topic for how the community here works. :slight_smile:

Thanks !! Yes. I’m aware of wishlist vs roadmap, etc; just wasn’t sure if outdoor Wyze Cam had been scrubbed, put in to the backlog or what?. What about my 2nd question “is the design for the outdoor Wyze cam pan or stationary?”
