I am one of those who were affected by solid red led symptom when updating the camera
they replaced my camera, and that replacement one also have the same symptom
i asked for another replacement since they are forcing it, hopefully this time I can run the latest firmware
So from a developer perspective, there’s something the developer feels everyone needs to have, and some won’t get the update. That’s a bad feeling as the developer knows they really should have it for security or breakage or whatever.
It gets convoluted and other issues are present if they did security updates separately or whatever.
When they have several things all connected to each other, it gets into a crazy place without forced updates.
Instead they should fix any issues that cause updates to go poorly so that people can’t complain about it as much.
I would DEARLY love a good push capability, or a “wait until later”, for camera firmware updates. I don’t look at my cameras frequently, but when I do, at least half the time I have a firmware update notification. When I call up my camera, I want to look at it NOW. I see an old thread on the Forum regarding the same topic, but I see no response from Wyze. (I use Wyze Cam v2, Outdoor, and Doorbell.) Please consider our plea!
With the last 2 versions of firmware for the v2 camera on hold due to AI issue I wonder if I can update my camera to an older firmware now that will still met the requirement for firmware version or is this forced firmware required all to be on whatever the latest version may be?
I am still on 126.96.36.199 and stopped upgrading at that point since my cameras work. With each update I fell like I am playing Russian Roulette with each of my cameras with each firmware update. At this point is there an reason for me to upgrade to anything newer and if so which one is the safest to update to?
Wonder how this is going to happen. I’ve been assuming there is a secret phone home kill switch in ALL the old firmware that will accept a forced update. But maybe there just isn’t? Maybe my old, old firmware will stay untouched (as the RTSP variant reportedly will) and will either (a) stop working or (b) just keep working? I almost never run the actual app - the only recent exception was when one of my bulbs decided to forget its identity after a brief fixture cleaning removal.
I have two theories. Certain generations have never experienced societal stability so they doubt its concrete existence. Disrupting something relatively stable is a service to humanity because entropy. Stock comedy has become parody of parody of parody ad nauseam. So gaseous from the get-go. Unsatisfying.
I went with firmware version 188.8.131.521 which is latest firmware that is not currently paused. I installed the firmware from SD card onto 9 cameras without issue. All nine seem to work okay. Now why does the app prompt for firmware update when the newer two firmware versions are paused due to IA issue?
