Night Vision

Wyze Cam Outdoor has the Night Vision feature, similar to what you're already using on other Wyze Cam devices. This lets you view an area even in deep shade or darkness.

To turn on Night Vision:

  1. In the Wyze app, tap Home, then your Wyze Cam Outdoor.
  2. Tap the moon icon on the top to toggle Night Vision On NVOn.png, Off NVOff.png, or Auto NVAuto.png.
    • Auto will automatically turn Night Vision on and off as needed.

How does Night Vision work?

The Wyze Cam Outdoor has 8 LED infrared (IR) lights that turn 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 into place within the camera.

Can I turn the IR lights on/off?

Yes, you can toggle the IR lights on and off when using Night Vision. This can help if you have your Wyze Cam Outdoor pointed at a window but you're seeing an IR glare.

To turn the IR lights on/off:

  1. In the Wyze app, tap Home, then your Wyze Cam Outdoor.
  2. Tap the Settings  SettingsGear__1_.png gear on the top right. 
  3. Tap Advanced Settings, then tap the toggle next to Night Vision IR Lights

Additional Notes:

  • While Wyze Cam Outdoor has a decent low-light vision, we can't guarantee that you'll have full visibility with the IR lights disabled. This is due to variations in lighting conditions.
  • If the camera range seems poor with the IR lights off, we recommend using a motion-activated floodlight or an IR Blaster.
