Feature request: alert for camera disconnection

wyze-cam

#1

Hi there!

One feature I really miss from previous security camera is the notification for camera disconnected.

It would be really great if you can add this feature. It’s really simple but could provide warning to the owners about power outage or camera being disconnected by someone.

Also because if motion detection is triggered but someone have chances to disconnect it before 15 seconds you’ll miss any notification!

 

Thanks.

That sounds like a feature that might be useful! Will pass this on to the team. Thanks!

Hi alezzandro! Not yet, but have already notified the team about this.

I do check my cameras at least once a week to make sure they are still working. So far, these seem very reliable. However, I still anticipate them to “throw an error”, “flip a bit”, or, need to be “bounced”, once in awhile.

It appears this could be addressed in some sorta “try catch throw finally” statement.

Any updates or estimated time frame of this happening? I would really love this feature for days like today when they are working on the power since I use my camera to keep an eye on my saltwater tank.

Me too

Any updates?

Hello, i am also interested in this, i thought of a simple way of adding this feature to the app, if your camera doesnt generate an alert for more than 90 minutes (user configurable, as each wyze user knows what is normal for his camera position) we can presume power went off/ or device is unresponsive & an email or alert could be sent to the wyzecam user.

if this is in the roadmap already could someone supply a link to it? thanks
