My question is about how frequently a Wyze Cam will record a motion-sensed event on Wyze Cam V.2 and the new Wyze Cam V.3.
We have a single Wyze Cam V2. We set it to do motion-sensing recording. It records 12-second clips (approximately), and sends an alert to my phone after a delay of about 1 minute to 5 minutes (assuming my cellphone is receiving OK when stuffed in the pocket of my jacket while driving in the car, which is not always the case.)
We just use the free service, i.e. we do not pay for a recording/storing online subscription.
What I’ve noticed is that events are only recorded at approximately 5-minute intervals even if there’s continuous activity in the room. So, motion is sensed and a recording is made. Then the camera waits 5 minutes before it will record anything else.
NOTE: I understand that we can set the camera to do continuous recording on the micro-SD card which we have inserted into the camera. This function works OK, no problem.
Question 1: Am I correct that 12-second event recording at 5-minute intervals is how the camera is intended to work?
Question 2: Does the new Wyze Cam V.3 work the same way, i.e 12-second recording with a limit of 1 recording every 5 minutes or so?
Question 3: Does a paid subscription record motion-sensed events more frequently or for longer duration?
And is that service the same for Wyze Cam V.2 and V.3?
