Wyzecam v2 MAC address in app doesn't match reality

Just discovered this on my network today.

The MAC address reported in the app does not match the MAC address of the unit on my network. You can see in screenshots below comparing the app and my unifi controller.

Yeah, that’ll change. :wink: There is a bug in the firmware that makes the camera revert to its network card’s MAC address randomly. So, you’ll occasionally see the Nova Electronics address above, and occasionally see the Wyze address on the bottom of the camera.

You are the first I’ve seen to show a discrepancy between what the app and your network shows, though. Either the address in the app is static from setup, or it needs refreshing. In either case the one to trust is your network app.

This is a real issue that they are aware of. Not sure how fast it will be fixed, though.

Good to know.

It would be good to get this fixed as it causes issues with MAC based policies :slight_smile:

Yes, but if you authorize both addresses you are good to go.

mine did this too … i was so confused for a while!
