I’ve had Wyze Cams and been adding more and more of their products. I originally purchased one camera because I was having issues with my vehicle and house being messed with. After the initial shock and amazement of how great these work, I went out and purchsed 4 more along with the “starter” kit, started to add the home security (door bell still out of stock), did lots of research online as was in the process of building a VMS locally as a NVR.
Today I had an incident with an individual who ended up hitting and knocking down my Wyze Cams. Now take in to account these are mounted on the top of the roof under the ledge. I did not thank goodness hard mount them as I am constantly having to access them to remove the SD cards and take footage off then replace SD cards. My internet went out (router got unplugged without me knowing). After this incident, I noticed the outage and then went and pulled the SD cards in order to save the “evidence” and add to the collection.
Upon reviewing of the SD cards, the cameras DID NOT RECORD WITHOUT INTERNET!!! The whole purpose of the SD cards being installed (well main reason) was for continuous recording even when the internet goes down. Now I have no evidence, no proof, and no way to prove everything that transpired!! This was the one piece of footage that would have finally stopped this individual and now I have nothing!
Why did this happen? When did the change occur because previously i have been able to retrieve footage without internet?
I am so distraught and disappointed,
