Rotate image in 90° increments


I wished for the same thing, but because the image sensor is not square, the only options would be to not use all the the available image, or to distort the image aspect ratio. Neither of these is acceptable in my opinion.

What is really needed is some way to change the physical orientation of the camera. Something that the current mount doesn’t allow, as you have stated.

Something like would allow you to convert the vertical serface to horizontal. I don’t have any great suggestions, but I don’t see how doing a 90 degree rotation of a non-square image would turn out the way you would want it to.

Here is a post with a picture of the v1 and v2 image sensors on the circuit boards.


This would also be very helpful when aiming the camera down a long narrow hallway, mounting high. I had to mount this way for my entry way. See pic. Great coverage, you just have to tilt your head sideways to view - LOL IMG_0938


I have a similar mounting location/view. The camera points out of the side window of the door to get a view of visitors. It is oriented sideways for two reasons: 1) It is mounted next to the molding and entends out to look through the window. Mounting it above is not possible due to a low ceiling. Mounting it on the above (or on the ceiling) would give a wide angle view which would not be a great view for that location. A sideways view is preferable for areas like hallways, entries, etc.

I don’t understand the image issue. The native view of a phone is perpendicular, not horizontal. Right now when I view my back room camera (mounted for horizontal view) I have to physically turn my phone sideways to get a full screen view.

A more intuitive approach would to show the feed just as it does now, but horizontal or vertical depending on the setting.
Then TAP TO EXPAND! It would bring the feed into full screen. No need to play around with tilting your phone or your head trying to get a better view.

I’ve done a lot of UI development, and adding suppoer for vertical view should not be a major change.


How do I vote for this?

I would like to mount my Wyze Cam sideways and be able to rotate the video in 90º increments to get the correct orientation.

2 Wyze Cams and 1 USB Power Adapter

Here is my workaround. Its a 2 inch bracket from Home Depot and a magnet.!


It would be nice if i could rotate 90 degrees or 270 degrees, not just 180. Thanks.

I do!!! Need to mount on a wall so 90 deg rotation would be great.


My scenario is that I have a narrow window next to my front door and I would like to position a camera in such a way that it captures someones face and the package they are leaving on the stoop. The wider aspect ratio used 90 degrees vertically accomplishes this. I’m using it for package delivery detection/notifications and visitor identification. I can still do all this without the playback image rotated 90 degrees, so maybe it’s just a matter of convenience. I’ll be testing the new Wyze Sense motion sensor in this scenario soon. Thanks!


Long hallways, driveways, sidewalks leading up to the house, cams running across the front face of the house, fencelines… I mean, there are other settings most people don’t use already that some people have a real need for… what’s one more? ;’)

Thanks again for everything else you guys do. :slight_smile:

I would really like to be able to rotate 90 or 270 deg in order to better monitor my pets.
