View On PC/Browser

maybe-later

#226

If you search the forum for “chromebook”, I think you’ll find some discussion of people doing that. Some successfully, others not.


#227

Yes please create a web version please. When at the office, I try to be on my cellphone as little as possible to set the example and it would be much easier to check on how things are going if I could get on my browser and check things out.


#228

Please make a PC version ASAP - it’s incredibly difficult to see small details on our phones and also volume is not usually loud enough through the phone.


#229

There is no reason to not have this available in a browser. Please make that happen Wyze. You have many, many people asking for it. Including myself.


WyzeCam website for viewing videos

I would not have bought the device if I had taken the time to figure out this feature did not exist.


#231

+1 for PC/Browser (or RTSP).


#232

do they have it on desktop?!?!


#233

@alyleonguerrero

Not yet. Make sure you scroll all the way to the top here and click the VOTE button.

Other than that, the advise given in the other topic you posted applies. You can use an Android emulator such as BlueStacks or Nox or Memu (Windows only).

BTW, please don’t cross post the same question in multiple places.

I am amazed at what you folks at Wyze have been able to accomplish with a $20 camera. I’ve replaced many of my NEST cameras with your cameras and couldn’t be happier with the results. Except for one … NEST allows me to view on my PC. Wyze doesn’t.

I recently started using Memu emulator on my Windows 10 laptop, running Wyze. Memo works great … and I am blown away with the sharp images from my Wyze Cams … much clearer and more impressive than on my iPhone. Now granted, some of that is just the “size” of the images … both alerts and live viewing.

I’ve been a Microsoft test since the early DOS days … and realize that trying to write Windows software opens up a real can of worms since it has to run on many different machines, using a variety of video cards.

It sounds like a Windows App should be easy … but I know it’s not.

However, I think it;'s something Wyze needs to look into if you expect your cameras and future offerings are going to be taken seriously in the home security market.

But, please, keep up the good work. You’ve accomplished a great deal in a short amount of time. I can wait for a Windows app … since for now, Memu seems to work just fine.


#235

Can you go into a little detail of what and how to view cams on your laptop.

Thank you.

WARNING: Proceed at your own risk.

As you know, WYZE folks are looking into adding PC/Laptop features but are making no promises on timeline.

A lot of us are using Memu emulator successfully to view on our PC/Laptops. Memu is an Android emulator, which allows you to run Android programs on PC/laptops (including the WYZE app).

Setting it up is not for the faint of heart.

I assume no responsibility for you deciding to follow my instructions, but this is an outline of how I managed to get Memu and Wyze up and running on my Windows 10 laptop.

Again, proceed at your own risk.

The safer route would be to wait until WYZE adds the PC/Laptop features to their App.

If you decide to proceed, I offer no guarantee that my instructions are complete or even correct, so don’t pepper me with questions or flames. I’m sorry that I can’t offer more assurance. I’m only posting this as a basic guide on how I did it.

If you run into a problem on getting Memu to run on your Microsoft machine, there is plenty of help on the Memu website. Please read and work with them … not WYZE or Me. I am not an expert on Memu … I only wanted to find a way to have WYZE run on my LAPTOP.

It’s possible … but you are on your own.

  1. Requirements to run Memu:
  1. download Memu installation file:
  1. check your PC/laptop system with 3rd party utility (to see if you have to change CMOS settings for Memu):
  1. How to enable Hardware Virtualization:
  1. Memu 101 help files.
  1. Once Memu is running on your PC/Laptop, click on Google Play icon in MEMU screen and download WYZE app.


#238

If Memu fails to load and gets stuck before it loads 100 percent, please use the following guide to troubleshoot. You might have to change some of your Virus Protection settings, etc.

Also, please don’t forget to click on VOTE on the first post. To me, the best option is for all of us to ask WYZE folks to add PC/LAPTOP features to their own system. But I also realize that that is a whole different can of worms for the WYZE folks to mess with … and is easier said than done.


#239

I’m what you (and myself) wiuuld concider ‘the faint at heart’. LOL. If it isn’t something pretty straight forward, I’ll pass. However, thank you for replying so quickly.

Years ago when I still had my patience and drive to conquer all things, I would of attempted it. I’ll take the wise advice and wait for Wyze.


#240

Kind of surprised a year later, and in November you say “this is not currently under consideration”. A million cameras sold and you can’t put one developer on this? There are 234 replies to this post, imagine how many more you’d sell if you added this capability. Is it not technically possible? What is the issue exactly? Maybe a little more transparency beyond the standard boilerplate response would be helpful. I too would buy more cameras if this was available. And for the record, Bluestacks is a horrible solution, tried it and uninstalled almost immediately.


#241

It does not make sense not to have this for Desktop. I vote YES we need this option, WYZE team please put this in your pipleline. Your product is cool, I love it just need this feature sooner the better.


#242

Hi @WyzeGwendolyn,
This desktop app was written in Nov 2018, are there any updates yet as to using a desktop app for the Wyze as of yet?? If so, please link. Also, anyone having any problems with it to date if there is currently a desktop app? I see there are over 600+ votes for this, and I just voted it in as well. Thank you.
Weather proof cam would be great as well, looking into getting a few more for windows and outside etc.
Thank you for the info. Will the info be shared here, or will I get an email?? Thank you again!


#243

At this point I haven’t heard anything about us working on this. Sorry I don’t have anything more to tell you! On the bright side, we are currently working on a weatherproof camera.

We’ll update this post if we start working on a PC/Browser method. Technically, RTSP could help with this and we are making progress on that.


#244

Thanks WyzeGwendolyn! Look forward to hearing more! :smile:


#245

Not true, I have three and as of the day after Christmas’18, my internet got cut to 1/4 speed. I still have an issue and if not for local storage, I would have no use for them. Cloud storage is a backup option and should never be primary storage.
