If you own a Wyze Cam, you've probably debated mounting one outdoors. After all that's where security cameras tend to be most effective! This outdoor housing for Wyze Cams v1 and v2 is an attractive and functional print that makes outdoor security a possibility!
This download contains several versions of the mount. You can print top or bottom mounting versions, and there are also versions to use with or without a 52mm UV lens filter on the front (for UV protection) [ebay $0.99]. The UV filter does create a glare when the night vision IR lights are on, so you may want to disable night mode (until Wyze adds manual exposure control to their app).
The housing involves 3 printed models included in this download, plus a 1/4"-20 nut to connect to any standard 1/4"-20 mount (tripods, phone mounts, security camera mounts, etc...) I connected my cameras to these Articulating Camera Mounts.
IMPORTANT NOTE : It is still recommended to mount your camera under an eave, or some kind of protection from direct rain, extreme sunlight, etc. UV resistant materials like ASA and PETG will last the longest exposed to the sun and elements, although even PLA should be fine in many conditions.
- added 'v2' STLs for the bottom parts that now include weep holes to release potential condensation
- added Cable Plug for a tight seal where the cable exits the housing
- added Cable Strain Relief to prevent the cable from being yanked out from behind. Also allows you to create a 'drip loop' to prevent water from running along the cable into the USB input. Basically, make sure the cable dips below the input (see diagram in photos). If you're really worried about cable yankers, you can glue the part into place for extra strength.
- Added '_Looser.STL' versions of the top part, for those having trouble with the .25mm clearance of the standard versions.
