Support for wifi 6 (802.11ax)

The new standard for wifi has been released and a few devices already come with it.

From what I have read it increases wifi data rate and range. That would be perfect for these cameras. Just need all new versions of your devices to support it

Don’t hold your breath. 802.11ax gets most of it’s benefits by using bands other than 2.4 GHz. Since the Wyze cameras are limited to 2.4 GHz, not much to be gained.

That’s kind of my point. Future versions could be made with the faster standard. It’s just a wish.

Faster data speed with longer range? What’s not to like about that. I would gladly pay more for it. Sounds perfect for an outdoor version. Or for a version that supports 4k.

I see they are working on Wifi 7 or 802.11be. Looking forward to 6 or 7.

@K6CCC. Are you saying MUMO and other enhancements will only affect the non-2.4G side? Just curious as I was hoping on overall improvement.

As I read it, correct. The newer technologies gain their advantages by using multiple bands. If you connecting with a single band device, you obviously do not benefit from multi-band capabilities.

Thanks. I have to go back and read about MUMO. I thought it opened more pathways on the band instead of providing just one.
