In this video, we show you how to easily wire up an Wyze camera outdoors. The Wyze camera is designed for indoor use, but with the right products, it can be used outdoors. this lasted through an Northeast winter and winds. The Wyze camera uses a micro USB cable for power, it is near impossible to find a long enough cable to run to the camera, and even then, you need to figure out which wires inside the USB cable can be powered or extended. With this solution, you buy a 12v CAR DC adapter (+ and – wires) with an USB end (which plugs into the camera) and simply run 2 wires, which can be labeled and sorted later to a + and – to an AC to DC adapter indoors. You can use any wire to run, speaker wire, etc, any type of paired stranded wire.

We show you how to wire a C-Wire at the Air Handler for EcoBee Thermostat. We also wire a Nest thermostat without the C Wire. We had extra wires in the prerun, so we just connected one of the extra wires at the Air Handler to a C-Wire. We believe this is much better to leave the original installation type correct without using any adapter packs.
In this video, we show you how to install the brand new Wyze DOORBELL camera. This installation replaced a doorbell system with 2 outside doorbells, and 2 interior doorbell boxes, along with a secondary wireless add a chime module.
We also show you how to remove or “unsnap” the wyze doorbell from the mounting plate once you get it into place
When the power goes out, you lose the Wifi Connection. How many times did you have to remove power to your Wyze Cameras after. a power failure. The same is true with the new Wyze Doorbell camera. The unit is less than 1 week old, and we are into it with a power failure. the doorbell stills work but it is no longer connected to the Wifi, and the app tells you the camera is offline. In this situaion, what do you do? Do you go in the fusepanel and start hunting for the breaker each and every time your Wyze Doorbell loses power? What if other circuits are connected to that breaker?
Well, usually the original doorbell is in a living space (so you can can hear the doorbell), in this video, we install a switch inline, so when the Wyze Doorbell loses power, and loses wifi (and it will), you can easily get to the swith at the original doorbell location to flick it on and off to reset it. We show you how in this video.
