I have an Orbi and 3 satellites. I’ll admit it’s unfortunate how Orbi handles sticky clients and satellite channels, but it’s also clear that Orbi works well with most devices.
My network has little interference and is on a channel that is non-overlapping (1) and none of my neighbors within detection range are on this channel. The amount of noise is insignificant and not worth mention.
While I’m no longer a network engineer, my friend is a highly certified and specializes in building professional systems at large scale. We’ve brought his equipment over and found mine to be full and strong coverage beyond my property line. Tracing the connectivity to the cam, I find a low but not insignificant amount of dropped packets and a fair latency. The NIC remains responsive while the stream is frozen.
I’ve also tried the RTSP firmware, which suffers frequent drops as well. I have noted when the phone app is actually streaming, the problem worsens. Additionally the phone app streams drop at the same time RTSP does.
The indication is that while the cameras’ NIC remains connected and responsive, the stream is intermittently dropping. Several times a minute for varying lengths of time. Something is overwhelming the camera’s ability to encode, would be my guess.
It’s hard to believe that few people are talking about this issue on the Wyze forums, given that a quick google turns up a good amount of reddit and other chatter on the subject, to which Wyze employees have responded on occasion, however with no resolution.
This is why I necro’d this thread. It’s an issue that hasn’t received a resolution, nor adequate attention.
