I have gone through a dozen threads in the forum but still decided to create a new topic as I am facing both the issues. I got hold of Pan camera from friend and wanted to test it for a week before making purchase decision. I am planning to buy 1 Pan and 3 V2s. But my experience has not been smooth. I am testing this on Galaxy S9+ Android 9.0.
I setup Pan camera, it updated firmware and I was able to live stream on my phone. Toggled around settings, changed motion detection settings to high, detection zones to off/whole frame. Enabled event recording, schedule time on/off. Enabled notification, even the smoke alarms. Toggled local storage to continuous/event based. Played around with motion tracking (it tracks moving object cool). Set pan scan settings to desired location. What I mean to say is - I checked/toggled every setting there is for the cam.
- but there are no event notifications, and no clips recorded in the Events tab.
- nothing is getting recorded in memory card (yes toggled settings, formatted though app. Saw somewhere in the forum telling to format memory card using external tool, but I didn’t feel necessary as I test formatted card with few different cluster sizes in FAT32).
Then I found a thread which said downgrade firmware. So I downgraded from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11. Wow #2 problem solved. It started recording clips to memory card. #1 didn’t work yet.
Then I further downgraded to firmware 18.104.22.168. But #1 still didn’t work. What I noticed though is - option to live stream in 360p is gone and lowest settable is SD. Camera movement is better. Not like you click and camera moves either too far to too low. Just more precise. Third live stream connects way faster than latest firmware.
WYZE, we need an explanation to why there is issue in notification and recording? And why older firmware is faster?
