Making sure my Wyze Cam v1 and v2 is recording in SD Mode?

#1

I have several Wyze cam’s of both versions. I’m curious how do I know it’s recording in SD mode? I don’t see the option to “record events” in SD or HD mode? Is it as simple as hitting the toggle from SD to HD when live viewing the camera and that it defaults recording to?

Yes, you just use the live stream SD/HD toggle.

Read this in another post:

"The WyzeCam supports 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB microSD cards in FAT32 format. We recommend Class 10 for optimal performance.

The video file size will depend on whether your WyzeCam is recording HD or SD video. You can toggle between HD and SD video on the live stream view of your camera.

For HD, the video size is approximately 400MB/hour (~10GB/day). For SD, the video size is approximately 130MB/hour (3-4GB/day).

Because some storage space is used for formatting the card, a 32GB microSD card will store approximately 2 days of HD video or 7-8 days of SD video. Your WyzeCam will overwrite the oldest footage when it runs out of room on the microSD card."

Hope that helps.
