Audio/sound while in multi cam group view mode

Luv the new iOS software. Next, can you make a designated audio from one of the Wyze cams to play for one of the cams, please. I want to be able to view four cams at the same time with audio supplied by one of the four cams,

It would be nice to have sound as an option!

Yes,:+1::+1:

I am really excited about the new multi-camera view feature but I really need it to have sound coming from each and every camera that is visible within the multi-camera viewing area. Reason for this is that I intend to use my cameras as monitors for children and there is much benefit to hearing and not just seeing. My current cameras have this feature within the app I use for them, in fact you can easily toggle sound on/off per camera in the multi-camera view screen area. My current cameras are getting old and need to be replaced but I will need to wait for this feature to become available, if it does.

If it plays sound from all of the cameras at once, then how can you tell which camera the sound is coming from?

#6

Choose one camera to play audio from, of the multiple cameras you have to choose from

#7

Agreed, if you are set on absolutely wanting to know which camera the sound is coming from without any doubts then choose only one camera to play the sound. This would be a great additional feature to have, for sure.

On the other hand, I have 2 kids and want to be able to monitor them visually and audibly at the same time, not just hear 1 of them at a time…both of them.

Thus, making it user selectable to choose which camera or cameras to hear the audio from would be the best for everyone’s situation.

@jeff007 which current camera set up do you have that has this option for audio on simultaneous camera viewing?

#10

Its not an option yet. We want it to be an option.

#11

@happyclammer I know it’s not an option for wyzecam. He said he had a current camera system that allowed this. I was wondering what that brand was.

#12

I have multiple Foscam cameras that are all 3-5 years old. I use the “Foscam Pro” app for them on iOS that gives this functionality.

#13

@jeff007 thanks! That’s a cool feature.

Here is a screen shot of my setup. Notice the somewhat transparent icon in the lower left corner of each camera that is connected. All I have to do is press that icon to toogle the sound on/off for each individual camera while in the multi camera view area.

Another item to mention is not just audio but also BACKGROUND AUDIO for one camera or multiple cameras. This means that the sound will continue to be audible but without the picture if you close the app to do other things, turn the display of the phone off, and/or lock the phone. My current setup does this as well. This makes the cameras act as sort of a baby monitor when needed.

Please see the post below for the feature you are requesting. You can VOTE for it at the top-left of the topic.

One thing that would be great is if you can have volume play if you want it on the group camera display. I would like to use it as a baby monitor as well and would love to be able to hear both cameras as well see them at the same time. Is this something that is possible. As of now i have not seen this happen but with some script to the software I don’t think this would be an issue and also a great selling feature for baby monitors ;). Thanks again everyone at Wyze and keep hitting them home runs!

I too would like to see this. Right now I am running 2 iPads, one set to group mode and one set to the individual camera I most want sound from. I thought I had gotten away from needing multiple tablets when simultaneous streaming was introduced!

I also would like the option of selecting the audios of any combination of cameras. I love the Foscam way above, but if you can’t do that you could bring back the “go to” button that appeared at the bottom of the tile when you touched it, and add an "enable audio” checkbox next to that. If you do it that way, you’ll probably need to add a visible indicator that audio is enabled,

However you do it, please do it soon! Thanks. :+1:

Audio while in group view was temporarily removed for the release due to a bug. My understanding is it will be back. But if you tap a camera in group view to bring it into single view, then you should be able to get audio then.

I’m curious about one thing you said: with the app logged into the same account on multiple devices, you should be seeing the same groupings on both devices. Are you not seeing that? Or is one of the devices logged into an account to which the cameras are shared?

I am logged into the same account on multiple devices. The first iPad is showing group mode (no audio), and on the second I tapped on a camera in group view to bring it into single view so I could hear the audio. So I have a silent 4 cameras on one iPad, a audio-enabled single camera on the other.
