Night Vision

Unlike any of our other cams, Wyze Cam v3 has new and improved low-light vision, giving you a wider range of possibilities when using it at night.

Color Night Vision (or Low Light Vision)

Since the Wyze Cam v3 has much better image processing in low light than the v1, v2, Pan, video doorbell, or the outdoor cam, it's actually capable of having a clear image even without Night Vision turned on. Since this relies on at least minimal lighting in the area to work, it won't be perfect for every situation, but it will let you have the option of leaving Night Vision off in situations where it might not be the best fit.

Regular Infrared Night Vision

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 can turn Night Vision to On NVOn.png, OffNVOff.png, or AutoNVAuto.png.

How Does It Work?

Wyze Cam v3 has 4 LED infrared LED lights that are turned on when Night Vision is on. You may hear a clicking sound when Night Vision is turned on or off, which represents the IR filter moving away from the lens to let the infrared light through.

Adaptive IR Lights

Wyze Cam v3 can toggle the IR lights between three settings when using Night Vision; Far, Near, or Off.

To toggle the IR light brightness, use the following process:

  1. Open the Wyze app.
  2. Navigate to the camera's Live Stream.
  3. Go to the Settings by tapping the SettingsGear__1_.png icon in the top right of the screen.
  4. Go to "Advanced Settings".
  5. From here, as long as Night Vision is enabled you should see an option labeled Night Vision IR Lights. Tap this to see the 3 options (Far/Near/Off), along with a preview window.
