Microphone

#1

Hello Everyone.

Is there a way to completely shut off/disable the microphone in the WyzeCam V2. It would be nice to have a Microphone and Sound On/Off/Disable feature.

There is a option to turn off the sound. If you go click on the settings gear its under advanced settings and you simply turn off record sound. Now if you are thinking the camera is constantly sending audio over the mic to somewhere I doubt that fully.

However, if you are sharing the stream, you are sharing your private conversations too. So it would be really excellent if we could turn off that microphone.

Why would you share your camera and visuals of a private area or house if you dont want the audio to go with it. I dont understand this. If Im sharing the camera its with someone I want to hear the audio too.

Picture this: You are sharing a fishbowl or a basket of kittens with your grandchildren. You wouldn’t want them listening in on all your conversations too.

Then mute the camera as stated before. I believe it works on the shared end as well if you mute it. I could be wrong though.

You can mute it, but you have no control over whether they unmute it. Why all the resistance? What we are asking should be simple to implement, and is totally necessary IMO.

I agree the user should have full control of the microphone and sound features. I want the camera to only show video in some areas. The ability to DISABLE all audio settings for recording, streaming or sharing can be added in a firmware update. Not everyone like other people or electronic devices listening to every sound or conversations.

Thanks @Loki. That is also very important, as you wouldn’t want the people you share with to have the same authority as you to turn off the security options you select! :+1:

Well if Wyze won’t allow users to disable the camera microphone then I guess I will have to pop it open and unsolder the microphone for sure it won’t be listening or sharing any audio. :rofl::rofl::joy::joy:
