Camera Grouping

It’s coming.

This didn’t really get implemented quite like I thought it would

The new feature allows you to create a
Camera Group
A contact Sensor Group
A Motion sensor group

What it does not allow is to create a

Backyard Group
Home Group
Garage Group
Office Group
etc

Where I can tell it which of ALL my sensors (and future Wyze products like doorbell and light bulb) are in which group. Why was the grouping limited to sensor type?

agreed!

also one item can become multiple groups

Also if you use a camera in a group it is locked into that group.
You should be able to put a camera into multiple groups… I have a camera that I would like to have in others groups also.

This item is in the Wishlist currently. follow this link to vote for the feature and let your voice be heard.

remember to search through the forums as often times what you are looking for is already being looked for or worked on

How about a feature to have location-based (or other feeform description-based) groups?

This should be trivial to implement…

How come while viewing multiple cameras in a group the quality is worse? It’s not SD bad, but its noticeably worse than just viewing one camera.

It’s not noticeably worse to my eyes, but it is worse. The frame for each picture drops to 1/4 of the screen, so to preserve bandwidth on low networks they drop the resolution in the 4-grid multiple camera view by 66% to 360p.

I wish there was an option to set it to 720p. I guess I’m used to it though, I always view my cameras in a group because they’re on all entrances so I like to keep an eye on them.

What’s weird to me here is you can see any reduction in resolution. Yes, the time stamp is more noticeable, but when you think about it, reducing to a quarter of the screen is actually a reduction of 50%. 360 vs 1080 is a reduction of 66%. So yes, it is slightly less resolution for the equivalent screen size, but amazed you can see that!
