No, it must be right-side up.
Wyze Battery Cam Pro can be mounted virtually anywhere: to the ceiling (using Wyze Universal Metal Mount), to the wall, under an awning, and more. But it always has to be positioned right-side up, as shown below:
The camera lens, PIR sensor, and radar sensor must be oriented properly for features like Person Detection* and Motion Detection to work properly.
Why can’t it be upside down? Because the sensors’ views are outward and downward. If mounted upside down, you may receive a lot of false positives from direct sunlight, moving trees, or bigfoot.
For proper mounting, check out our Wyze Battery Cam Pro Mounting Guide.
*Person Detection is only available with a subscription to Cam Plus.
