Delete ALL Events (Eg for the entire month)

In Wyze Cam app, Currently it seems that you can delete only events for one day at a time.
But if I have events for the entire month and I want to delete them all, it can become very tedious.
Need the ability to delete events over specific set of days/ weeks / months or even absolutely ALL events.

Hello @tamuz123,

The events are automatically deleted from the cloud after 14 days. No need to worry about deleting the events. It’s not necessary.

Does that fix the need for this?

Thank you. Will events recording also be removed from my storage card? (I hope not)
When do recordings deleted from my storage card?

You’re welcome, @tamuz123

After your Sd card gets full, it loops and deletes the oldest videos first. You should always have 2 to 7 days of video recorded on the card depending on if it is set on HD or SD.

After glancing thru the existing wishlist items associated with ‘clearing events’, I’ve come to the conclusion that my request has not yet been addressed. (could be wrong though)

I have events being recorded for both sound and motion on a wyze cam v2 located at a home in the Philippines. The problem is that over a 24hr span I get hundreds of events (which is what I want) but deleting the video clips after review is difficult because during the process of deletion a text button pops up that asks ‘select all’ when you click that it selects, but far from all so I need to go thru this routine time and time again to get them all deleted… Is there a limitation associated with the ‘select all’ option and if so would you consider changing it to include ‘all’ of the clips???

I think it’s mentioned above, but there’s a trick here to get a full day deleted at once… before selecting all, keep scrolling to the bottom until it stops loading events. (The app only loads 20 at a time to conserve data.) Once the full day are loaded, select all will select all of them and you can delete them at once.

Wow, thank you so much I wish it were documented better, it would have saved me months of frustration.

App needs a master switch to delete ALL events with one tab. The video deletion process is very slow with requiring 5-6 multi-repeated steps to clear all daily videos for multiple cameras. I like clearing mine out to avoid wasting storage space. I can use the 5-6 repeated steps to “select all” & delete all videos within the same group but that’s still too much. The app needs a simple option to delete all videos from all cameras at once. That would be a great tool for routine days not needing any saves.

Good4U,

It already has that capability and the reason you have to do it five or six times now is because wyze servers only download 20 of the clips at a time so if you want to do them all at one time scroll through all the clips then go to the delete process and you’ll only have to do that one time

I realize that. I want one button to delete all video from every day all st once.

Thanks for sharing your suggestion about having an app feature that can delete the events per date or day!
