Wyze Cam Blurry At Night [Solved]

Is your Wyze Cam Blurry or with poor quality at night?

Yeah, I've been there. My Wyze Cam Pan had the same issue, but I solved it.

Let me explain what worked for me....

Wyze Cam With Poor Quality Image

If your Wyze Cam has a poor quality image during the day, it gets worst at nighttime, so you need to fix the problem by improving the overall quality.

Here are some things you can check (they helped to solve my problem).

Camera resolution

A common issue most users face is camera resolution. If it's too low (360p), the video captured by the camera is not good enough, and you will notice the problem even more during the night. So please check if the camera resolution is correct.

To change the resolution, tap the icon on the left and pick an option. 

Wyze Cam Pan Resolution

You can choose SD (Standart Resolution) or HD (High Resolution) to get a better image quality for your Wyze Cam. (I'm using HD my camera).

Wi-Fi Connection

Your Wyze Camera connects to the Wi-Fi router,  right?

Suppose the wireless connection is not good enough because the router is too far away and the signal is not good. In that case, you may notice some blurry, pixelated, or grainy images on your camera, especially at nighttime.

Please check the Wi-Fi signal quality; here's how you can do it.

  • Open the Wyze App and select your Wyze Cam;
  • Tap the "gear" icon on the right top of the screen.
  • In the settings menu, tap "Device Info";
  • Check the Signal Strength.

Make sure there are at least two bars that indicate the signal strength.

If the signal is not good enough, please move the Wi-Fi router to a better position or use some Wi-Fi extender to improve the signal. 

Ilumination and Infrared light

Cameras need light to capture a good image, so make sure the illumination is OK.

You can install more artificial light close to the camera or use its night vision.

Make sure the night vision mode is enabled and set to automatic mode, so the camera can turn the Infrared light (IR) when it gets dark.

Wyze Cam IR Feature

Tap the icon to enable the automatic night vision mode.

It's also important to make sure the camera is not pointing to a reflective object that can bounce the infrared light back to the camera lens.


Yeah, believe it or not, it's possible to get a poor image quality from your camera only because the lens is dirty, so make sure to clean up your camera.

I had this problem myself with one of my Wyze cameras installed in the kitchen and got a lot of grease in front of the lens. (So gross :))

The camera image was blurry and fuzzy, but it got much better after a clean it up, and I noticed a huge difference in the picture quality.

Firmware update

The Wyze lab team is constantly improving the camera firmware.

For example, the new firmware ( implements the https://webrtc.org/ which has faster load times and better streaming for Wyze Cam.

Sometimes a simple firmware update can solve the problem.

So, check your Wyze Cam firmware and update it.

Hardware issue

The last thing you may consider is a hardware issue.

If you tried everything but still have a poor quality image from your camera, please consider replacing the camera with a new one.

Perhaps your product is still under warranty, just check.
