Portrait mode (90 or 270) is very useful for everyone trying to monitor their front entrance for example, it allows you to see full height of the person, the floor (for feet, little animals, and package delivery), and the walkway (person approaching, car in driveway, etc) at the same time.
Since the Wyze cam is a passive monitoring system, I use it to watch for package delivery and also to help against package theft. I often have packages sitting from morning until late evening, and have been told others have had packages stolen very close by. knock on wood it hasn’t happened yet, but would like to avoid the problem.
Just yesterday, I observed an old man go through my recycling bin for cans. I got home and saw packages waiting. Took me a fair bit of video review to figure out that the delivery happened 4 minutes after the old man left, still during the 5 minute cool-down - so I never received a motion alert. Where the package was placed, I couldn’t see it in the film and had no idea it was there.
I have since reoriented the camera to 90 degrees and am trying it out in this orientation, which gives me the coverage I want, but not the application experience since I’m rotating my phone to horizontal to move to full screen and then upside down to view the right direction (since iPhone won’t rotate your screen if it’s upside down). Only solution so far.
Seems this feature has been requested a long time ago, would like to see implementation given the extensive interest from the community.
