Thanks for the info…I played around a bit with IFTTT! Yes, it seems the Motion Detection must be on for IFTTT to work…which means alert clips go to the cloud.
(I just don’t like creating 100 accounts, I get tired of creating accounts, but that’s how things are these days, I guess. Now I have an IFTTT account, also!)
Anyway, IFTTT works fine and there are pre-defined triggers to send SMS or email when a Motion is detected. I know WyzeCam is small and inexpensive but it seems it could send an SMS or email notification data (i.e., date/time/camera) to the Wyze servers that could then package up the info into a real email/SMS and send it off that way. Then the Wyze servers are just a notification service instead of a data service also (if you choose to not use the cloud for imagery.)
