Good evening all,
I have used three hardwired V2 cameras for the past two years outside (enclosed in case) with zero issues to report. I just received three V3 cameras as I was impressed by the wider view and the new starlight feature which were a major selling point to me. I set all three cameras up and placed them in the same location as the V2s using the same connecting power source. All three were also updated with the most recent firmware. Three 32GB SD cards were also placed in the V3s that had previously worked in the V2s without incident.
Two of the V3s are working as they should including playback with the SD cards that I did not have to reformat in any way. My third V3 is located the farthest from my router and is located twenty feet high on the gable. The V2 worked flawlessly in the same location. Unfortunately my V3 is having major connection issues. Keeps freezing and stalling before showing 0.0KB/s. I will go to playback and it will tell me no SD card is installed. I will go into detection settings and set it up, however it will not let me exit the page, before it resets everything. I will power cycle everything and then all of the features will work for a few minutes including playback for the SD card. However all of my issues will reoccur a short time later. I also note that the sensitivity levels are ridiculous even at one and the nonstop notifications are tiresome.
The wider view and color night vision are great, however it is very frustrating as my third camera location is the most important as it watches over my vehicles. I would expect the V3 to be superior in every way to the V2 including wifi connection. I do not think I should have to pay for a wifi extender as I own six Wyzecams and was one of the first original purchasers. I am going to switch two of the cameras around to see what happens when the weather breaks. Any tips or advice will be greatly appreciated
