So I bought a new in box sealed box V2 camera that included the SD card.
Backstory: I’ve owned over 10, bought and gave away over 30 so far and yet maintain 10 myself for about 3 yrs hit and miss.
Why is this new camera turning on by itself under .199 software?. The wife and I have purposely named it masterbed… to see if f nefarious actors capable of getting past whatever Wyze says is safe.
4 days straight. I have screen captures and videos showing the camera is off ( but we are watching it ) and yet it’s clicking on and off and capturing video.
How do we know? Because we bait it. We will move it to various locations, I test set it up half dressed show my bed, and then I act like I’m adjusting it…and I shut it off and cover the lens.
Just waiting… and boom! It’s magically turning it self on and showing the cover we place on itself and recording sound when every option of NOT RECORDING SOUND is checked.
I have 4 days of exposing this camera as turning on by itself based on suggestions of name…Failure named camera turned on twice by itself in 6 hours, Selfie named camera turned on once and MasterBed is turning on twice a day for hours at a time to which the wife and I are pretty upset that recordings of our voices are occurring for hours, hours of the camera documented with a cover on it using this name and it’s SUPPOSED TO BE OFF.
I swear the above is true, Off is not off and the only way we found out is by turning on the LED on function and then we started documenting.
Tomorrow I will name it like Toilet camera and record it coming on while app shows it off.
These events are real and show up in events and full length on the sd card inserted that came from Wyze.
FIX THIS…or I go to reddit and gatewaypundit and provide absolute proof that there’s a creep accessing our cameras.
Try it: name you camera some supposed private view and shut it off and watch how long before it comes on and records. We had to cover ours it became so prevalent
