Using USB Extension Cable for Sense Bridge - Seems to help signal

#1

I have increased my outdoor mailbox’s Motion Sensor signal by adding a 3 foot USB A (Male) to USB A (Female) extension between my WyzeCam and the Sensor Bridge. The cable I had on hand is black, but I’ve ordered a white one from ​Amazon
This works on both my V1 and V2 cams. I had a couple of these cables, but not all of them were able to fully connect the bridge. On one, the bridge’s light would stay constantly yellow; never turned blue. Another would connect intermittently…likely had a broken connector. If you try this, make sure the bridge connects with the steady blue light.

As a new forum user, I am able to upload only a single image per post, so here is another close-up of the camera, bridge, and USB cable.
