No, I meant input. There's was a rating on the power supply for the repeater. But the docs that came with the repeater only indicate that the input voltage is 5 VDC. I couldn't read anything on the repeater itself.
But it plugs into mains power....so, the input of the device has to be 120 VAC, right? Maybe that is referring to the signal repeating part of the device only. And I was able to find this on the Ikea website.
The USB adapter provided with a Wyze cam also outputs 1A.
That is an extremely strange way to document that though. I would have thought they would have documented the available max load of the usb port, not of the power supply inside. How do we know how much current the signal repeater draws so how do we know how much is available for the USB port? Very odd.
I'm willing to bet that if you're in Night Mode with the IR LEDs on that it's probably close to 1A. I tried using a cheap PSU that I had laying around that was rated for 1A but really delivered something like 700mA and the camera wouldn't stay running.
I meant the Wyze cams are causing the Wifi interferences to your Ikea plugs. If you have a long USB extension cable. You can try moving the camera away to test. I am curious to see the result as I am thinking of getting some of these for repeaters as well but seem like a waste just for running empty.
Ah, so just to confirm, you're not saying that the cameras were killed by the IKEA repeater, you're saying the camera dropped off the WiFi or froze and you had to reboot?
I had a couple of Switchmate outlets that I was using to give cloud access to some Switchmate switches, but found that every time I plugged one in, a day or so later it would cause my front door Wyze cam to go offline. I'd reboot the Wyze, but the cycle would repeat until the Switchmate outlet finally went offline itself. Then it wouldn't cause an issue any longer. If I moved the Switchmate outlet far enough away from the Wyze cam, it didn't cause a problem. But for this reason, I just don't use the Switchmate outlets anymore.
