Alert Schedule Question

support

#1

How do I set the Alert Schedule to record 24-hours a day?


#2

From the app, tap a camera, then tap the settings gear icon in the upper right, scroll down to Alert schedule, set your start and end time to the same time, when you go back it should say “All day”.

Also see this from the FAQ page:

When does the WyzeCam automatically record video?
Your WyzeCam has the ability to automatically record a 10-15 second alert video when it detects motion, sound, or CO monitor and smoke alarm sirens. Alert videos are automatically stored in the AWS cloud via end-to-end encryption and can be viewed for up to 14 days in the Notifications tab of the Wyze app. After 14 days, alert videos are deleted and cannot be recovered. Since alert videos are stored in the AWS cloud, they will be available for the full 14 days after the video was captured, even if your WyzeCam is lost or damaged.

Alert videos can be saved or shared by tapping the Share button in an individual alert video. They can be deleted by tapping the Delete button on the same page.

You can turn on/off the recording of each type of alert video independently:

In the Devices tab, tap the camera for which you would like to change the alert video settings. Tap the Settings icon in the upper right corner.

Under Alert Settings, toggle each option on/off (Motion detection, Sound detection, Smoke detection, CO detection). When motion detection and sound detection are turned on, you can select the level of sensitivity that will trigger an alert video


If you’re talking about continuous recording, you’ll also need a microSD card. See this from the FAQ page:

What size and kind of microSD cards does the WyzeCam support? How long does an 8GB or 32GB microSD card last for local recording?
The WyzeCam supports 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB microSD cards in FAT32 format. We recommend Class 10 for optimal performance.

The video file size will depend on whether your WyzeCam is recording HD or SD video. You can toggle between HD and SD video on the live stream view of your camera.

For HD, the video size is approximately 400MB/hour (~10GB/day). For SD, the video size is approximately 130MB/hour (3-4GB/day).

Because some storage space is used for formatting the card, a 32GB microSD card will store approximately 2 days of HD video or 7-8 days of SD video. Your WyzeCam will overwrite the oldest footage when it runs out of room on the microSD card

Would love to get even more granular on the scheduling. Days of the week would be amazing! Feature request!

My alert schedule will not stay at “All Day”. I’ve tried resetting. It automatically goes to 8:00 PM - 10:24 PM.


#5

Try this , close app, then go to recent apps,close it there too, go back open app back up, and see what it’s set at


#6

Still won’t stay on “All Day”. Even forced closed and cleared the cache.


#7

I don’t know , i’m just not having that problem any more with app 1.4.43


#8

I am running 3 WyzeCams and none of them will accept the All Day alert schedule. No matter what Start Time and End Time I set, they are immediately resetting to these weird times:

07:00 PM - 09:24 PM

09:00 AM - 11:24 AM

09:23 PM - 11:47 PM

Odd that they all seem to be 2 hours and 24 minute intervals.

My app is version 1.4.43 and all cams are firmware version 3.9.3.62. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.


#9

I’ve tried everything but I can’t get the camera app to stay on regular alert schedule. It has a mind of it’s own. Its favorite choice is 0000-0224

Same here. Everything is up to date. I guess what I have not tried is rebooting cameras themselves. Anyone have since insight on this issue?
