IP65 weather-resistant. Bring on the downpours, blizzards, and heatwaves— Wyze Cam Outdoor is built from the ground-up to be a workhorse in even the harshest conditions.
Go where wires can’t
Wire-free & battery powered. Mount to the outside of your home or in your trees without running wire or searching for outlets. 2x-2,600 mAh integrated rechargeable batteries last from 3-6 months based on normal usage. *Normal usage is 10-20 event videos per day. Battery-life varies based on settings, temperature, and usage.
Seize the day. Illuminate the night
1080P Full HD with Night Vision. Crisp video recording and live streaming with 25 ft, yard-illuminating night vision let you see every detail on a face or whisker on a snout.
See who’s coming and going
PIR motion detection. Capture people and animals with 12-second motion-activated video recordings saved automatically to the cloud for 14-days free. Motion detection senses body heat using passive infrared (PIR) which reduces false alerts from waving branches.
Cover every corner of your home
Low profile base station. Connect up to 4 cameras to a single base station and view all video streams in the Wyze app. The starter bundle includes Base Station. (Additional cameras sold separately and available at general launch.)
Respond in real time
Two-way audio. Ask the delivery person to hide a package behind the bushes or scare off unwanted guests in your yard using Wyze Cam Outdoor’s built-in speaker and microphone.
Capture the world
Offline video recording. Staying at a hotel or backpacking in the Rockies? Travel Mode records motion & time-lapse videos locally to a MicroSD card for when you’re without an internet connection or base station.
When can I buy additional cameras without the base station?
The expansion cam will be available for purchase soon and will cost $39.99 per camera.
Why do base stations only support up to 4 cameras?
We want to ensure that we offer the best possible experience at launch. We will need more time to thoroughly test support beyond 4 cameras and decide if we can allow more cameras per base station in the future. For now, if you need more than 4 cameras, you can buy another starter bundle to get an extra base station.
Is Wyze Cam Outdoor compatible with Complete Motion Capture?
Wyze Cam Outdoor is not currently compatible with Complete Motion Capture (CMC) but we are working on this now. CMC will be available for Wyze Cam Outdoor at a later date.
Will I be able to continuously record to a micro SD card like with Wyze Cam v2?
Wyze Cam Outdoor is built for maximum flexibility so that you can truly put it anywhere you want even if that is outside or where there is no power outlet. Continuously recording to a micro SD card like Wyze Cam v2 will make the battery life extremely short. Because of this, we did not build this feature and Wyze Cam v2 is still the best option for this use case. However, we did build a "Scheduled Recording" feature where you can schedule specific times for the camera to continuously record to its local micro SD card or record when PIR is triggered though this will reduce battery life. This feature combined with Travel Mode will allow you to take the camera anywhere to record anything you want even if there is no WiFi available.
What are the cool down and Event Video lengths?
The cool down period is adjustable between 1 minute, 3 minutes, and 5 minutes. The Event Video length is 12 seconds.
How long will the battery last?
The battery can last up to 3 to 6 months with normal usage (about 10-20 Event alerts per day). Battery life varies based on settings, usage, and environment temperature.
What are the mounting options?
With the included mounting base, you can mount the camera in either a wall-mount or ceiling-mount position. The camera and the mounting base are connected using magnets. Alternatively, the camera also has a standard 1/4-20 screw hole at the bottom and you can use any compatible 3rd-party mounting kit.
Is the base station wired via ethernet or is it wireless via WiFi ?
The base station connects to your internet router via ethernet. This is to ensure the best and most reliable experience at launch. Allowing wireless base station connections to your router is a possibility that will require additional testing from us to verify that it can be done without harming connectivity.
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.
What is the micro SD card slot on the camera for?
The micro SD card slot on the camera is meant for the time lapse and scheduled recording features. This is meant to save videos that you intend to shoot with the camera such as a specific task continuously recorded over a couple of hours or monitoring a remote area without WiFi. This is not meant for constant continuous recording like with Wyze Cam v2.
What is the micro SD card slot on the base station for?
The micro SD card slot on the base station is meant for a backup of the 12-second Event Videos. This is a good feature to use if you are concerned about the camera becoming lost, stolen, or damaged where it is mounted.
Will there be a solar panel option?
We have not spent time researching this yet but we will explore the possibility after launch.
Why does the camera require a base station?
The base station is primarily used to improve the battery life by keeping the camera power consumption low. It also provides a reliable internet connection via an ethernet cable and removes compatibility issues with different router brands.
What if someone steals my camera?
We have added a new feature for Wyze Cam Outdoor because we understand that the risk of theft is higher with products that are mounted outdoors. We built a mechanism that prevents a new account from setting up the camera if it is already paired with a Wyze account unless the original account releases it. In short, if someone steals the camera, the camera will not be able to be used again unless the owner removes the camera from their account.
Does this mean I have to permanently keep the camera on my account if I don’t want someone to start using my stolen camera?
Yes, the Wyze Cam Outdoor would need to stay paired with your account to prevent another person from using it. We are looking into ways to improve this experience after launch.
Why does the camera look like a Death Star?
Originally, we looked into solving our battery problems with kyber crystals. But, due to limited supply and rebel subterfuge, we were forced to go with lithium ion batteries instead. We kept the original design after realizing that it helps improve the accuracy and function of the Wyze Cam Outdoor’s passive infrared motion detection.
What is the difference between Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Outdoor?
The biggest differences for Wyze Cam Outdoor compared to Wyze Cam v2 is the IP65-rated weatherproofing and the built-in battery allowing it to be truly wire-free. Wyze Cam Outdoor also features a PIR (passive infrared) sensor to detect motion while Wyze Cam v2 uses a pixel comparison algorithm. We also developed a travel mode for times where there may not be WiFi available when you are using this camera. Wyze Cam Outdoor was designed to excel in a harsh environment without readily available power sources.
Can I use this camera indoors?
Yes, this camera can be used indoors. Although it is possible that a Wyze Cam v2 would be better equipped for your use case if there is a power outlet available.
