I am new to Wyze cam so let me know if I am off base here but…is the cloud recording necessary? I have a 3 year old Dlink 942L camera that I bought at Costco. It came with a 32gb SD card. It records all action events and the time duration is controlled by the user. I have it set to start recording 1 minute before and 1 minute after the event. It also has geo fencing that can be set for more than one area o the screen.
My current recorded video clips go back to January 2016. There is no video recorded on a cloud it is all on the SD card, there is no monthly fees. An alert tone hits my phone exactly at the moment action has been observed by the camera and it is recorded that exact moment as well. To view the events on my cell or on my Windows laptop the events are clearly identifed by time and date in small window blocks similar to how they are on Wyze cams Notifications.
If there are costs associated to Wyze to operate 12 second video notifications on the cloud, why not just skip that and go with the SD card and then users can have easy , instant access to their live view and recordings of any duration they choose. It has always worked flawlessly remotely on my cell, tablet or laptop.
Any thoughts on this?
