New Wyze user. I just received my first Motion Detection alert. When I looked at the video, it seems that the camera detected the motion a lot later than I would have expected and certainly a lot later than other cameras I have used. Allow me to explain.
I have the camera set up in a 2nd story window where it can see the street in front of my house. Based on the location, it can see vehicles as they approach my house from the left or right, cross in front of it and well after they pass the house.
The event that I just received shows a vehicle suddenly appearing in the middle of the road and driving away after it has already passed my house . The camera did not capture the vehicle as it approached the house from the left. I see an empty street then Pop! the vehicle appears out of nowhere, in motion, and driving away. Based on the location of the camera and the layout of my street, the first 5 seconds of the video should have shown the vehicle approaching my house.
Is that the normal “response time” for a motion event with the Wyze camera? If so, then the camera is not going to fit my needs. (FYI: “Detection Zone” is turned Off, which I assume means that the camera is checking for motion within its full range of view.)
Thanks for any info that you can provide.
