I noticed this last night and did some further testing this morning.
I have 3 Wyze V3 cams and all appear to be exhibiting the same behavior. I’ve owned these for a few months now and I don’t remember this happening when I first set them up.
On each cam, Night Vision is set to “Auto” and the IR lights are “Off”. I set the lights to “Far”. When I back out of the settings page and then go back in, the setting appears to stick,
However, when I close the app and go back into the camera’s settings, the IR lights are set back at “Off” again.
I’ve tried restarting the camera and reinstalling the app with no success.
It’s daytime here now but I don’t THINK this behavior is by design. Meaning, I think “Far” means turn the IR lights on when it’s dark enough vs. turn the light on now. In other words, I don’t think the camera should be changing these settings automatically.
Or maybe I’m just confused?
