I’m renovating my house, and I’d like to set up a couple of Wyze cameras to have a time-lapse of the process. The reno will last 3 months, and I’ve seen other posts mentionning that the time-lapse feature is limited to 30 days, but that isn’t an issue, as after 30 days I can just remove the SD card, copy the file to a PC, and the put back the SD card to start a new 30-day time-lapse. Since I plan to take a picture every hour or so, I don’t think I’ll have space issues.
I do have a few questions :
1- is it possible to only take pictures from say 6 am to 6 pm every day ? or even better, every WEEKday ?
2- is it possible to get a notification only the first time in the day that the camera detects movement, and then ignore all movement until the next day ? IFTTT ?
3- Since this is a reno, power will probably be cut from time to time, sometimes for long periods. I’m planning to buy a USB power bank to supply power to the camera during those times. Right now, it seems the largest power banks are in the 25000-30000 mAh range :
3a- how long would the power bank last if the only action taken by the camera is taking the time-lapse pictures, e.g. does the camera use less current if it’s only taking pictures as opposed to detecting movement/taking video ? What if I want to be able to connect remotely to get a Live stream from time to time ?
3b- anyone know if those power banks can remain plugged into the wall 24/7, so whenever current is switched back on, then the power bank would be recharged ?
Thanks for your input
