Record video to phone instead of Wyze cloud or local SD card

Feature request for cams: when motion is detected (or sound/alarm or whatever trigger), enable the ability to start recording to the user’s phone (automatically) instead of Wyze cloud or local SD card in the cam. Allow users to set how long of a video clip you wish to record during each event. This is especially helpful for the doorbell cam, which does not have the ability to record to local SD card.

Welcome to the Wyze community @daveandkeri!
This is an interesting idea. The only issue I could see is the video would need to be sent over the internet to Wyze’s servers, then the phone. The video would also need to be downloaded to the phone so it would take up storage and battery life on the phone.

No it wouldn’t? It could use the existing P2P system used for remote live viewing.

The tricky part might be waking up the phone and properly recording in real time regardless of the conditions of the phone and its network and storage…
