I do have cam plus and i have cameras up in the kids room and i have them pointed away from their general areas so we can be aware of who they’re talking to or what they are saying but the sound only events still have a 5m cooldown and 12 sec recording. If we could get continuous sound only events that would be a huge help! Or the outdoor cam has options to select how long events are recorded and the cooldown. That selection on the normal indoor cams would be awesome!
I propose that if you have Cam Plus, the camera will start recording until there is no more sound (cf. when there is motion the camera doesn’t stop until it is gone). This will help with times when for some reason the camera is covered up, there is hardly any motion for it to detect, etc. Thanks!
As a new Wyze Cam Pan owner I agree, especially if you subscribe to cam plus. This is a huge downside for me, and unless they change it I will probably not be buying anymore Wyze cams. Recording until sound stops would be best, but at the very least the sound recording should be longer (at least one minute) with a lot less of a cool down.
Ever thought about also using local storage for this? In the mean time you could out a sd card in the camera and record continuously. Now take the sound event time and go to the playback and watch the event in it’s entirety.
No, I shouldn’t have to especially if I pay for cam plus (which I do). Cam plus was advertised as “no cool down period” which I found out is only for motion/person. I also see from the the original post about this issue that supposedly Wyze Outdoor cams have the option to set event recording length and cool down period, but indoor cams don’t.
