Whose Wzye Cam's are Out in the Cold? The weather Outside is frightful!

I have one outside, under a covered porch. Decent snowstorm last night but all seems well.
Up here in Montreal Canada we get some wicked weather so excited to see how it will hold up

I’m going to have to play with the sensitivity of the motion , went a bit haywire with the snow falling and sent me about 30 notifications through the night lol

Nice Eh! :wink:

Yikes,

We haven’t had a major storm yet.

Wide angle headlights give me enough nighttime notifications, drifting into the notification zone.

With the 2nd break away, " Polar Vortex" coming through the USA., this winter.

Does anyone have Cams out, in these New record Low temps?

-22° F with a wind chill was the last low, I remember?

We should look at just the ambient temperatures as wind chill only affects skin. It matters to us, but not the camera.

U R correct,
My auto correct (?#$@) continues to out wit me.
It should have read " -22 without the windchill".

Yes, please post your results with that temperature. I’m rather curious if you see any issues, or not. :slight_smile:

Yeah, mine just changed ‘or’ to the wh word. What really gets me is when mine decides to change a word when my finger is in motion to press send.

The camera itself provides a small amount of heat which defrosts the front windscreen of the auto in a small round circle type shape, higher in the center because the heat rises up the windscreen, and the windscreen is slanted above the camera. But, if it gets too cold it will not defrost everything, only a very small amount of fog or dew, no snow, or ice would be my guess. Of course there is almost never ice here, and never any snow because it is sub-tropic, so I doubt I’ll get to test that theory an further.

Thanx,

have 2 in upper Midwest tucked under soffit.
been -5F a couple of nights and with windchils, expected to be -35F this week.
So far both are doing very well.
little shaky at 30+ mph winds but that is expected for where they are mounted.

I have one on my boat to view temps in cockpit and bilge. So far we have been down to 5 degrees f. Great having the ability to gauge the lift height and the temps on board visually from home.

I haven’t had any problem with my outdoor camera Concerning Weather, It’s Under the eaves, No other type of enclosure on it, It’s just stuck too the top of Porch light 15 °F below zero 45 mile an hour winds , Blowing snow

So ur Wyze Cam is without a outdoor housing.
That’s the equivalent of doing, “the Polar bear Plunge”.

Nice!

Now we have -
Bear (Bare)
&
Jacketed (with housing)
Readings!

Great Research Data, “Wyze” People!

I’m looking for outdoor covers that won’t have a fog during the night vision. Do you have any problem with night time fog (from the IR light reflection) with these? I tried another type, but still had slight fogging around the edges.

Can’t say I have that problem, no…

Thanks, I’ll order one of this model and see how it goes! Are you still happy with the case?
