Device: Wyze Outdoor Cam
Wyze App: 2.17.41
Wyze Cams: 126.96.36.199
I’m trying to create a rule so that my camera group uses as little power as possible until it is time for it to wake up and start recording motion. Here’s my current setup:
I’ve created a Rule:
Start Time: 9:00 pm
End Time: 7:00 am
Action: Turn on motion detection
Camera: My Cam Group
The Rule is ENABLED.
Within each camera’s individual settings (event recording) it is set to disabled. On the Home screen the camera group is OFF. Notifications for each camera has all options enabled. With all the above settings there are no motion detection notifications coming in.
What i want to know is for each camera must i go to its Settings > Event Recording then set Detects Motion to ENABLED? Also on the HOME tab must the camera group be set to ON at all times? When i set Event Recordings to ENABLED and the camera group to ON i receive notifications all day not just between the Rule’s scheduled time. Huh?!
Either the Wyze coding is broken (again) or it is completely illogical to use. Perhaps both.
Yes, i have the latest firmware and app updates
Yes, i’ve power cycled everything
Yes, I’ve factory reset and set up everything again.
