Night Vision allows Wyze Cam to capture clear footage, even in the dark. Wyze Cam has 4 LED infrared lights that are turned on to emit infrared light when Night Vision is on. The camera also has an infrared light filter that drops in front of the camera lens to view the video feed using the infrared light. You may hear a click sound when Night Vision is turned on or off. This is the sound of the infrared light filter moving within the camera.
Night Vision can be set to On, Off, or Auto.
- When Night Vision is set to On, the LED infrared lights will be turned on and the infrared filter will be placed in front of the camera lens, giving a grayscale infrared video feed. This manual setting will not be impacted by the light setting the camera is in.
- When Night Vision is set to Off, the LED infrared lights will be turned off and the infrared filter will not be placed in front of the camera lens. This manual setting will not be impacted by the light setting the camera is in.
- When Night Vision is set to Auto, Night Vision will be turned on or off based on the light conditions that the camera is in. Night Vision will be turned on when it’s dark and will be turned off when it’s light.
There are two ways to set Night Vision to On/Off/Auto:
- From the Live Stream view, tap the Night Vision icon to toggle between On/Off/Auto
- From the Live Stream view, tap the Settings icon. Tap Advanced Settings. Under Night vision mode select On, Off or Auto.
Some behaviors to note:
- Low light situations: When Wyze Cam is set to Auto, in low light situations it may cycle Night Vision on and off several times and you may hear your camera making a clicking sound as the filter is moved within the camera. Once the camera adjusts to the light level, the clicking will stop.
- Out a window: When Wyze Cam is pointed out of a window, the light emitted by the LED infrared lights will be reflected by the window, obscuring the image. Wyze Cam is not designed for Night Vision to be used through a window, but some community members have found creative ways to make it work. Read through our Forums to see what’s worked for them.
- Reflections impacting image quality: Some objects (like a shelf surface, mirror, or wall) reflect infrared light back to the camera. This can cause some parts of the image to be be washed out and the rest to be too dark to see clearly. If this happens, try moving or angling your camera away from these objects.
