I want to trust that Wyze will upgrade this RTSP protocall. But I dont trust they will invest time in it. I even fear they will retract and close down their platform. My investment in these cameras have gotten me a bit paranoid so Ive mirrored the firmware just in case it goes bye bye.
What is RTSP?
Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) is a standard network protocol designed to establish and control media sessions between endpoints. Due to hardware limitation, RTSP could only be achieved as a separate firmware version for both Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan.
Support for RTSP
We don't have the resources to keep developing two branches of firmware for Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan. This means that the RTSP branch will be upgraded infrequently.
The currently available firmware is an updated beta version. This contains improvements over the prior version but still has the potential to include minor stability issues. Once we're in a position where we can confidently say that any present issues have been fixed, we'll push out a release version of the firmware.
How to install the RTSP Firmware
Download the Wyze Cam v2 RTSP file, or the Wyze Cam Pan RTSP file
Unzip the file.
Rename the contents to 'demo.bin',
Format a MicroSD Card into FAT32
Transfer the 'demo.bin' to a microSD card's root directory
Unplug your Wyze Cam and insert the prepared microSD card.
Hold the camera's Setup button while plugging in the USB cable and continue to hold the Setup button until the light turns solid blue.

Once the light is solid blue, release the Setup button and wait for 3-4 minutes. The camera will reboot, and the status light will change during this time.
Note: The "Solid Blue" in this case is not the same as the one normally seen on the camera. Instead, both the blue and yellow LEDs will be on at once, making it appear to be a lighter blue.
