To turn on Night Vision, go to the Wyze app and select the Live Stream of the Camera you want. Now click on the Night Vision Icon (image) found in the top right.
Here you will be able to turn Night Vision to On , Off, or Auto.
How Does It Work?
The Wyze Cam has 4 LED infrared lights, and the Wyze Cam Pan has 6 LED infrared lights that are turned on 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 clicking sound when Night Vision is turned on or off. This is the sound of the infrared light filter moving within the camera.
IR lights on/off
The Wyze Cam v2 can toggle the IR lights on/off when using Night Vision. This can help if you want to have your Wyze Cam looking through a window and are getting an IR glare.
Note: This feature is not available on Wyze Cam v1.
To turn the IR lights on/off, use the following process:
- Open the Wyze app.
- Navigate to the camera's Live Stream.
- Go to the Settings by tapping the icon in the top right of the screen.
- Go to "Advanced Settings".
- From here, you should see an option labeled "IR Emission". Toggle this setting off to turn the IR lights on the camera off.
