Introducing Wyze Video Doorbell - 9/22/20

Why no SD card support? 12 second clips with ‘cool down’ aren’t long enough without the option to backup and review the video.
Will Wyze be coming out with another version with SD card?

Thank you for adding all of the new wishlist items @steve4335- you’re a machine! I’m also interested in using the existing chimes and adding an SD card slot.

Yes, I think it has to be a push towards CAM Plus. How useful is a 12 second clip and 5 minute cooldown for a video doorbell? So, if someone steals a package from your front porch, you might only get them walking up the drive.
If it wasn’t a CAM Plus push, then it just wasn’t well thought out at all!

Make a paper chain to track the time!

That gives me a great idea for an Advent style Calendar counting down to shipment… :thinking:

Put this question on the wishlist topic by accident. Bumping it here so it hopefully gets an official answer: Video Doorbell

I also just ordered. The price is good enough to try it. However, I already know what I don’t like. The (free) 12 second recording IMO is to short. I will replace my SkyBell with this cam. My SkyBell records events and stores them in the cloud for free too. But these recordings are 30s.

Even with the 3:4 orientation, there does not appear to be a vertical wedge included to compensate for non-horizontal wall surfaces or angling the view downward when the house is above street level.

Is there a on-demand live view for the doorbell? I have 5 pan cams and I have waiting patiently for the doorbell. I am not sure I am going to get one now, I don’t understand why they don’t use the existing door bell chime when they are already drawing power from it. If there is cool down period too then it will be useless and does not have SD card for local record. I have been using continuous record on to the SD card on all my pan cams. I don’t understand they don’t use the hub for the outdoor cam. Eufy has doorbell can be powered by battery and wired, use the chime and use the hub. Granted it is more expensive but it is close to all the feature I wants. I used to have a bunch of Lorex cameras and I switched to Wyze and now I have just found out they have a door bell for $99 and built -in 16 gig of memory can further expand with a micro SD card, 3 seconds pre-recording of an event, no cool down and powered by door bell wired and the chime works,. They also sell a wedge kit with two wedges, horizontal and vertical so it works on my siding where my current door bell is.

Hello. I don’t have an existing doorbell or chime box.
Question 1: is there a way to install wyze doorbell without an existing doorbell /chime box?

Question 2: if I sell the house and move, is it easy to uninstall Wyze’s doorbell so I can take with me? Or is it, once it’s installed, it’s in the same place forever?

Answer to both, youll have to look into a seperate power supply that is rated to power the doorbell and then you can mount it where ever. And you should be able to take it with you unless it’s so permenatly mounted you can’t remove it.

I don’t see any problem with you /removing it and taking it when you move.
If you have a wall plug nearby you can use a transformer like this and your all set
