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

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.

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.

#32

Can’t say I have that problem, no…

#33

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

#34

We don’t get much in the way of fog here!

But, I have yet to install my outdoor, “Black Beauty cam”.

My delay is Due to a sensitive circuit breaker switch. It will be my 1st real electrical outdoor security light (blown ballast) replacement. & retro fit.To install cam friendly power outlets.

If fog does become an issue for me too, I’ll be checking back to see what does work!

Gud luck!

#35

FYI, the fog I’m referring to is actually in the video itself. It’s caused by a reflection of the IR off of the case. So I may see the center of a video, but the edges will be blurry. So I’m looking for a case that doesn’t cause a reflection and the fog.

#36

Oh, ok?

The optics of fog!

I have several cases, but have yet to put any to full time use yet.time

Hopefully this won’t be an issue.

I’ll be anxious to hear about your experience!
