Can anyone explain why Wyze Cam sometimes appears on the LAN with a different IP address? My gen 2 cam was reporting a mac address of c8:02:8f:xx:xx:xx and the manufacturer name “NovaElec”. It was, therefore, not getting it’s reserved IP address.
I see this has been discussed a few times in the past few weeks. One person mentions this is part of the startup process. Others that it’s a bug. My cam is on 126.96.36.199 and was offline for about a week with the alternate MAC address, all the while communicating with at least 4 different IP addresses–so this isn’t just a boot-time issue. I do not have Wyze Sense installed.
Anyone have some insights here?
