Are you suggesting that the issue with the RTSP stream timeout is not on the Wyze side?
At the same time I’m also not trying to say it’s also a possibility that something is flawed with the RTSP implementation, but I personally think it’s not that. Not being someone that has direct access to the Wyze source code or has the time to reverse engineer the firmware pretty much makes me base my assumptions off of experience and other confirmed posts in this thread.
When I start with my situation, which I’ve documented for the challenges that I faced, through all of the software configurations I never had a TCP specific RTSP non+connection issue with 12 cameras running through 3 different brand AP’s. In fact, I was able to use multiple TCP RTSP streams on one camera to multiple computers at the same time. I have had Zoneminder running now for 45+ days recording motion that is around 400GB with no reconnect issues. I’ve had plenty of issues - but found most to be related to network configuration and the limitations of 802.11x that most businesses face with a large data load over wifi. But that doesn’t mean that my use case matches others which is also why I agree it could be the RTSP service on the Wyze cam but I’d need to setup a reproducible scenario.
I also absolutely agree with you that it would be wonderful to have a hard wire to rule out wifi centric issues. Maybe the next version or a firmware update will support this capability.
