WYZE Cam V2

What is inside that little cube called WYZE Cam V2?

Few days ago I jumped on hype train and purchased WYZE Cam V2. This little Wireless security camera, which is very handy as baby or pet monitor and it cost only 19.99$ or 37$ CAD. ( I believe it is very unfair price in Canadian dollars. Given the current exchange rate it should be 26-28$)

Here are specs ( courtesy of www.wyzecam.com )

Color White
Finish Matte
Dimensions
  • Height: 2.20″ (56mm)
  • Width: 1.97″ (50mm)
  • Depth: 1.97″ (50mm)
Weight 3.53 oz (100g)

As you see specs are pretty OK for what we paying for. But I did not stop there. All I wanted to know what is inside and how it works ! So in my video I decided to gut it. I completely disassembled the camera and analyzed what is inside. Also publishing detailed photos for you to enjoy.

But first take a look at the unboxing and teardown video:

So here we are:

Main PCB, containing WIFI module and main processor. As well as serial ROM, audio amplifier and power regulation IC

    What kind of microphone is installed in your unit?

    I have a couple of units the mic is crappy. It is just solder on with pins and should be easy replacement
