I have had the new v3 camera for a few days now. Wow is it buggy! It routinely gets hung on the 3rd step connecting to view the live stream. I have to re start the camera. This happens multiple times per day. It has the newest firmware and yes I’m on the newest version of the Wyze app. This morning at 6am on my back patio my Nest camera picked up a cat walking thru. The v3 Wyze camera did not. The v3 is sitting 3ft up off the ground, horizontal and the cat was 4ft in front it. Now at 8am when I viewed all this, the v3 was hung, stuck on connecting at step 3 and it did not record the cat in the Event tab. So I assume like normal the camera was in a hung state for who knows how long.
Also I have noticed the Wyze app on iOS for the past 3 weeks is broken. I get a notification for an event. I tap that notification. Does that take me to that Event? NOooooooooooooooo it takes me to the live feed/stream of that camera. Why??? So I have to tap out, then tap into Events and tap that Event.
I had the wireless camera from Wyze 3 months ago, that was so buggy and junk I sent it back. Now it’s looking like the v3 will go back. I’m a long time use of Wyze camera. I have 6 of the v2, they all work perfect over the years. What is going on with Wyze? I know. Focus on camera and stop making idiotic vacuum cleaners and head phones!
Wyze use to make good cameras. Now they focus on idiotic headsets and vacuum cleaners.
PS: I love the color night mode of the v3. But if I can’t depend on the camera to not be hung/stuck/bricked often… it’s of no use to me. I ordered 2 Blink cameras on Black Friday, I’m going to see how they compare. They have to be better.
