@truckmen, you just did Wyze a service. As simple as it may seem to us folks who have had dozens of Wyze Cams for quite a while now, your simple newbie experience points out a simple, but important, hole in the Wyze instructions. Also, at least you read the instructions, which way too many people cannot be bothered with, hence many of the problems experienced.
Folks at Wyze Cam (@WyzeGwendolyn et al.), one of the problems with writing instructions/procedures is that the person writing them is too often too close to the product and so simple steps are considered obvious to the most casual observer, but they are in fact necessary for the new user (and even us old-short-memoried users).
I have written instructions/procedures and taught classes for everyone from grocery employees to Nuclear Submarine Operators.
Think about it for a minute, assume (you know what that means) for a moment you want to make a cup of coffee. You have heard about it, but you have never seen a cup of coffee or how it is made. Now try to write some instructions for someone who has never done this before on how to do it. Your instructions will be graded, and if you are like most of my students, you will fail by omitting may steps because you are assuming what you consider the obvious.
Yes, this exercise gets a bit ridiculous, but it is designed to teach that the person writing instructions/procedures must know their audience and provide a bit more detail than they think necessary. And pictures do help.
It is great that Wyze has such a supportive community.
@rick.gardner, your help was clear and spot on. Thanks.
