WYZE Outdoor Camera Announcement
Posted by: steve...
Date: June 23, 2020 08:25PM
Ships in August

$50 + shipping. Requires a base station (included). Connect up to four cameras to a single base station @ $40 each.

Motion detection senses body heat using passive infrared (PIR), which reduces false alerts from waving branches.

Think I'll continue with my indoor WYZE CAM V2 outdoors under an eve for the time being (been working fine for about 2 years).

The battery powered aspect of them is interesting even for indoor usage where it's difficult to get to a power source. Looking forward to seeing some real world data on how long it really lasts per charge.

$10 shipping.
I’d also be interested in recording time vs battery time.
Ordering one later.

Correct me if I am wrong, but they make it appear the batteries are hard wired in the
camera and you must connect the camera to a power source (5vdc ?) to recharge them?
Deal breaker for me if true.

WYZE -
> 2x 2,600 mAh/7.4V rechargeable batteries

Can I use the camera while it’s charging?
The camera will function while charging. However, this is not recommended as the
camera is built with the intention of running primarily off of its battery power.

Kind of like an iPhone, except longer between charges.

I can't find anything that indicates how long the battery is expected to last. I expect it to last different times in different circumstances, but it would be get some indication expected battery life in "normal" circumstances.

Yeah, except I don't have my iPhone nor iPad mounted outside under an eave or
up in a tree.
Be nice to have a removable battery with a spare on charge.

Apparently there is a micro-USB port for charging @ 5V. I think you should be able to take a external battery pack and leave that connected to give it more run-time. Then, instead of removing the camera you swap out the external pack.

Or, connect a solar panel.
