I’m sincerely hoping someone out there can give me some tips before I rip my hair out. A few months back I purchased three WyzeCam V2’s after a glowing recommendation by a friend who uses them. Long story short I received the units and got them all set up but I have never once received any kind of notification from them, nor have they recorded any events either locally or to the cloud. I have the application itself on my Android device fully allowed to notify me and everything is toggled to push notification in the application itself (including validating that the bell isn’t crossed out).
Initially I didn’t have an SD card installed as I really didn’t care about keeping a record locally and I am fairly certain (correct me if I am misinformed) that you do not need to install one to have playback of motion/sound events. In an attempt to see if somehow maybe that was the cause of my woes, I installed an SD card and let it sit for a few days with again no events recorded, or notifications pushed of motion. I know for a fact that the delivery folks had dropped by on more than a few occasions but no notifications were sent to my phone or recorded locally.
I have boosted the sensitivity up to the absolute maximum hoping that maybe that was the issue and I would be bombarded by everything including the bushes blowing in the wind. No luck.
Normally I would think at this point I had a bad camera but its happening (or not happening) on all three. When I received them I set them up and immediately updated the firmware that was available to the latest 18.104.22.168.
I feel like I have to be missing something incredibly obvious but I even had my friend who owns these same cameras drop by and compare settings, and everything was matching.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
