3rd party apps on pc

Is there any 3rd party apps on PC that can view the cameras? Ive tried using ispy but with no luck! Does anyone know!?

@tronoxis You can use a android emulator like


but there is no official wyze app for pc or mac.

I am using a Fire TV and tinycam pro’s webserver to view cameras on my PC. I use one chrome browser to view 2 cameras and one opera browser to view 2 cameras. Resize and stack opera browser on top of chrome browser. I spend few minutes every day on this routine every morning. So far so far and I am used to the “inconvenience”. Previously I just need to open one chrome browser to view 4 cameras at a time. But the app was changed only firefox browser can be used to view 4 cameras at a time but doing so will make my notebook CPU very busy.

Anyway hope Wzye will develop a PC app like the Yi Home PC app soon.

With tinycam pro being compatible with Wyze cams and there is no need to forward/open port is the major convenience for me. I use Wyze app to veiw alerts or SD recordings when there is limited bandwidth. But I use tinycam pro frequently to view multiple cameras when @ home or there is enough bandwidth.

wyze has marked the pc/web access “maybe later”


wyze is currently working on rtsp which would allow similar functionality to view on pc/ browser.

I will have to try this. I just want to be able to put up all 9 of my cameras on a monitor for me to view at once. Does tiny allow that?

I use BLUESTACKS 4 which is a decent Android emulator. Then, the Wyze app will run in Bluestacks on Windows. Howdver, some features will REQUIRE touchscreen to operate. I dont have a touchscreen.

If you use firefox, tinycam pro webserver via Fire TV will show max 4 cams at at time. But using firefox will make my PC CPU very busy. Hence I use chrome and Opera browsers to show 2 cameras using each.

tinycam pro via Fire TV can show 9 cams at a time if connected to a monitor directly.

I don’t have this fire TV thing you speak of but I definitely can get tiny cam software! Is this a TV? or is it the fire stick USB you talk about l

I use this one. But there is newer version.

bluestacks in bloated with ads though.

Bluestacks also takes FOREVER to startup and shutdown.

If I get a front door alert, I can’t be waiting 25 seconds for Bluestacks to launch. In that time, the person has probably already left. I don’t like to leave Bluestacks running because it likes to “DO THINGS” in the background.

I have been testing Bluestacks / TinyCam Pro today with 3 cameras and is killing my PC with high CPU usage (not an old crappy PC BTW).

I use the app player Bluestacks and then install the Wyze app using it and have no problems with it.

Same for me. That’s why I use Fire TV with Tinycam Pro webserver. Use Chrome for 2 cameras and Opera for another 2. Then resize and stack 2 windows together to view 4 cameras at a time. Using firefox can view 4 cameras at a time but again make my PC CPU very busy. I go through this routine every morning and get used to it :frowning: Hopefully Wyze will come up with a PC app, like Yi cam. Though I doubt it since it won’t be an easy task. Yi is from Xiaomi which is a much bigger company.

I have voted for this.
However I am using the MEMU program and it is not that much a resource hog like my Vivaldi browser is on the APPS listing.
This is on a Widows 10 2K 5 year old desktop.

Thanks!
Just installed and tried.
It makes my 4 yrs old win 8.1 i3 notebook cpu very busy, like BlueStacks tried before.
Very likely your desktop is more powerful.
Have to stick with my clumsy way of showing 4 cameras at a time.
No big deal, used to it…

Hopefully they can get this featured adopted in some way or another.

One drawback with WIFI is that its pointed at a street and the cars are smeared as they pass by and even people walking by have time lag also.

Take care,
Bill

Hello gxgolden

Can you elaborate WHAT features require touch screen to operate running Bluestacks?

Any recommendation on WHICH emulator works best with Wyze?

For example: Playback of recorded video brings up a time scale. To manipulate the time scale (to zoom in or out) requires two fingers on the screen.
