Love the cameras, just ordered my 7th one. I have 3 inside and 3 outside currently, with the outside ones tucked away under the eaves of the roof. No problems with any of them.
There is only one side of the house outside that has no camera coverage, so I ordered the 7th one for that spot. The only problem is that while the other cameras are generally pretty close to our modem/router and get great signal, the last spot is further away and is not connecting to the home network. The 6 cameras I have working now are all no further than 15 ft from the modem/router.
The last camera location is about 30 ft from the modem/router, and it is outdoors. I ordered a high-quality 15 ft usb-micro extension cable to connect it, which was rated specifically for these cameras. I also needed to use one of the 5 ft cables that come in the mounting kit. I daisy-chained the last camera from the closest one, one of the outdoor cameras. I am getting a solid yellow light but no blue light.
I tested the signal strength of the camera just inside the house from where the camera needs to go outside, and I am getting 60%. However, when I go to the outside spot, on the other side of that wall but only a foot or two away, I get no signal.
My question is this: Will a wifi-extender solve this problem? I was surprised that one wall can kill the signal so quickly. Also, after reading up on wifi extenders, I noticed that they require you to connect to an additional network that is created from your main network, only with an added EXT name addition. If I’m not mistaken, we can only connect the cameras to one network?
If anyone has any suggestions or advice, this Wyze user would be greatly appreciative! Thank you for reading.
