I’m a new customer, I have 3 cams (two wyze cam v2 , one in service porch facing backdoor, one in bedroom, and one wyze cam pan in the living room).
Using the task feature you discussed here earlier with another customer…I’ve created 4 task as follows.
Home - service porch cam & living room cam set to motion detection OFF w/days of the week set and time of day set…since someone will be home and don’t need detection and alerts.
Away - service porch cam & living room cam set to motion detection ON w/days of the week set and time of day set…since no one will be home
Dog monitor ON - bedroom cam set to motion detection ON w/days of week set and time of day set
Dog monitor OFF - bedroom cam set to motion detection OFF w/days of week set and time of day set
If I created schedule task(s) to turn On/Off motion detection with set days and times but when I created it,…the current time was 'with in’ the time window of the set times I want (example - Task # Away - set motion detection to ON at 8am Mon - Fri, Task # Home - set motion detection to OFF at 6pm Mon - Fri)…now when I created this task it was around 12 noon today (Monday)…so I then went to see if motion detection was turned on for each of my cams since I have that feature turned off on all 3 cams when I initially set them up…Here’s where I’m confused, when I went to check each cam settings to see if the set Task(s) had been enable, all 3 cams motion detection feature was toggle still in OFF position…(scratching my head). So I then restarted each cam to see if that would make the new Task(s) take hold - and it didn’t! I have to then manually enable motion detection for all 3 cam before exiting the app. So here my question - at what point does a new schedule task take hold (starts working) the day ‘of’ or the next ‘scheduled’ day…in my case…Tuesday?
I just want to make sure I set the scheduled Task(s) up properly and completely for what I’m trying to accomplish and make sure that the triggers and actions perform consistently on the days and times I’ve set up today so I can rely on the set up/system working. Maybe if I had created the task(s) at 7am to start at 8am Mon - Fri…they would have worked/enabled motion detection when 8am came earlier today, but because I created them at around 11:30am to start at 8am Mon - Fri, they won’t start the new set schedule till Tuesday? Please clarify so I can get this working right
