Add support for microSD cards larger than 32GB

Have the capability of having the wyze cam be compatible with a 1Tb microSD card allowing more video recorded than the max 32Gb

Me too. It did not work with 128 GBs, but 64 GB is not a problem. All my cams are using 64 GB card.

So this confirms all wyze cameras will use 64 gig cards and work appropriately@

64gb works fine

Yes, works normally with 64Gb, only insert a good brand or good well know certified…

Happy to say that we are officially in a researching phase for this! :slight_smile:


Great news.

Happy to see that someone at Wyze is looking at the forums :wink:

And BTW some people here can help you look into it since they have been using more than a 32gb

Awesome. Will look into this further. :+1:

Any chance that a pan, tilt, zoom outdoor camera will be offered any time soon?

Given that they just released the v2 Pan and unlike the v3 standard it wasn’t rated for outdoor use, I would say the odds are not good at all.

Thank you for responding

What is the max size that u are considering for this change? Will the existing cams also support it after firmware upgrade?

I expect you meant to reply to the topic at large or another person, rather than me.

Hi @PP007 You’ll need the 32Gb uSD card to manual flash any firmware. I’ve been using 64 Gb for recording and some have reported using 128Gb. Its worth a shot.

  • Preferable to use High Endurance cards in your device such as Samsung PRO Endurance.

Yes, I use 64 Gb class 3 cards and they work well. I had tried 128gb back then, but it was not recognized. Need to check again.
Mainly my question was for wyze dev team, as they have accepted this change for development now … whats the max size they are considering? And is the change compatible with existing devices via firmware upgrade?

I’ve 3 of the V3’s running on Samsung PRO Endurance 128GB for months with no known problems.
On 1 test I sat a V3 in front of a 47" TV which occupied about half the view. The TV was active from about 0600 when the first person up turned it on in the morning to about 2230 at night when the last person to retire for the night turned the TV off. Thus there were plenty of changing pixels throughout the day. But from 2230 to 0600 it was a static scene.
The 128GB card recording on SD filled up after about 13 days and started the normal overwriting.

I’m in a mood. Perhaps Wyze doesn’t support more than 32GB SD cards is because they only sell 32GB SD cards.

I use SanDisk 64GB High Endurance SD cards and have never had an issue, and I have over 25 cameras including 2 base stations and 8 WOCs.

We know that some folks have been using larger sizes! But there are things that we have to do on our side to be able to officially support those larger sizes and make sure that they’re more stable. About to head into testing! :tada:


Have you conducted a poll/questionnaire for those of us that have been running larger sizes for years?
As I mentioned above I’ve been running 128GB for months with seemingly no problem, and I’ve had a 64GB in a Pan cam since Feb 2019.
I do think brand/grade matters because early on I tried SanDisk and had several failures. Since then I’ve stuck to Samsung.

I’m happy to announce that we officially have firmware that supports exFAT!
