Optical zoom uses the lens to physically magnify the image, while digital zoom enlarges the image electronically by cropping and enlarging the image.
Wyze Cam OG Telephoto 3x has a set 3x optical zoom that can’t be changed. However, you can zoom in further using the 8x digital zoom in the Wyze app.
To digitally zoom:
- In the Wyze app, navigate to your camera’s live stream.
- Double-tap or pinch to zoom in and out.
