Rotate image in 90° increments

maybe-later

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 https://www.wyzecam.com/forums/topic/mounting-options/#post-72308 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.

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.
