no worries @shophorsefeathers
I’m the card nerd around here and it’s something most people are unaware of. you are correct in that Wyze does no specifically recommend high endurance cards and the Wyze brand cards I have verified are NOT high endurance either. but in joining the majority of the population this could simply be an oversight on the team at Wyze that didn’t know the difference HE cards have to simply even know they existed. had I never had numerous problems with cards I would not have known about them either.
so first off, I will show you what I, MOST of the Maven team and a great number of the community use for cards. the easiest way to find a good high endurance card is to simply search for high endurance cards. I wish I had more magic behind it, but it’s that simple.
without getting to terribly technical II can say that high endurance cards ARE MADE for writing video. the constant read write cycles of things like our cameras, or dashcams are very had on cards. a standard SD card when they were designed were made for something more akin to a point and shoot camera. take a small bit of data, write it to the card and it’s done for a while. when you start getting into the types of cards available there are quite a few variances and levels of storage.
many card manufacturers will even void their warranty if you use regular cards in applications like our cams or dashcams. sandisk is one of those.
in looking around I’m having trouble finding a good article that explains the difference between HE and regular cards is an easy manner…if I can find one I’ll post back.
