Could a Wyze camera be both a webcam and a monitoring camera?

I love these cameras and have a few of them, when I searched online I found that I could actually turn it into a webcam. While I did not see anyone touching the topic of when it’s turned into a webcam does it still preserve the functionality of a monitoring/streaming language. Does anyone have any knowledge of this? If it’s possible how would we achieve it?

Thanks all!

When you use the camera as a webcam, you need to install the webcam firmware. The camera will only be able to be used as a USB webcam if the webcam firmware is installed. You can use it as a regular Wyze cam or a webcam, not both.
Don’t forget to revert the camera back to the default firmware if you want to use it regularly.
