Wyze Cam?
  • Has anyone had experience connecting a Wyze Cam? Given its low price I may pull the trigger anyway and see if I can get it to work with SecuritySpy but it'd be handy if someone else has already made it work. Thanks!
  • According to the manufacturer's FAQ for this camera, "The WyzeCam can only be used with the Wyze App on a smartphone device (iOS or Android)". So It appears to be a closed solution, tied to their own app, that does not support standard protocols.

    I would recommend using only cameras listed on our list of supported cameras or ones that specifically state in their specifications that they support ONVIF (or at least RTSP streaming, in which case a manual setup should be possible).
  • Ugh, I didn't realize no ONVIF or RTSP. There seems to be a possible hack to enable RTSP (www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiUdSjby57M) and once the holidays are over I may get the cam and give it a try. Thanks for the quick reply, Ben!
  • @stevejones, any luck with unlocking RTSP on the Waze? Thanks!
  • I have been in touch with Wyze Cam directly via their Twitter handle. They have responded that they are taking a serious look at RTSP.

    I don't think they will do ONVIF, but RTSP may be in the works.

    I would suggest contacting them (via Twitter or other methods) and expressing your interest in RTSP support. The more feedback they get, the more attention.

    I have one of the cameras and the video quality is excellent. If they do add RTSP, lots more people would buy them in larger quantities.

    Now if they would just do PoE and an outdoor version!

Howdy, Stranger!
