A little over a month ago, I set up a Wyze Cam Outdoor hub with four Outdoor Cams. Everything was working great for about a week.
One Outdoor Cam went from working fine to dead almost instantly. I recharged it thinking it was a fluke, but it kept losing connection and apparently dying very rapidly. It did this repeatedly.
I reached out to Wyze, and they quickly replaced the problem camera. Unfortunately, now that I replaced it, it’s acting even worse. It was fine for a day, then on day 2, it showed a drop to 91% battery. Then it lost connection altogether. I got up on a ladder to power cycle it, and it showed the battery was at 0%, and to charge immediately. I recharged it, and tried again. I made it less than two days. I have it charging again right now.
What could be using the camera to drop almost all battery so suddenly? The detection settings and activity level have been moderate.
I’ve had all cameras lose connection here and there, which is frustrating. I’ve also yet to see a single camera go past 3 weeks on a single charge, let alone 3-6 months. This one camera just keep being overly problematic.
Thanks in advance for all thoughts.
