Can't record time lapse with large intervals

I can’t get the time lapse feature to work properly with large intervals between each frame. I’m trying to film a time lapse of a flower blooming and configure the time lapse interval to 1 hour, but the camera always seems to record with 3 seconds intervals.

What camera are you using? What firmware version? App version and devise type? Welcome to the forums! As a rule of thumb, please provide as much info as possible relevant to your problem so you can get the best troubleshooting help. Screen shots will help also if possible.

Edit/ making sure you chose the 1h on the sliders and it saved as the interval?

Sorry, first post :wink:

Below are the details of the camera, app, and fw:
Device model: Wyze Cam Pan
Firmware Version: 4.10.5.111
Plugin Version: 1.2.5.2
WYZE v2.10.74

And below is the configuration of the time lapse and the resulting video (it seems I can’t upload because I’m a new user):


Start: 20/05/2020 18:20 (guess it’s using Brazil’s time format)
End: 27/05/2020 21:20
Interval: 1h
The resulting video (around 700 kB) has frames with the following timestamp:

I also have another time lapse video that I have started on 2020-05-18 and stoped and saved today, less than 48 hours later, with almost 2GB. This has happened every time I’ve tried.

Ill start by tagging in the @moderators so that your trust level can be bumped to post your video. Still looking into the other things, and glad to see a video.
