Always recording..?

On my V2 cams, under Event Recording I have both switches (Detects motion and Detects sound) set to OFF, but the cameras are still recording to the flash drives. Is this normal behavior?

Thanks

If you click on the camera, then click Settings/advance setting/local storage/ You can turn SD recording on or off and also select Record Continuously or Record Events Only.

Check there and see what yours is set at.

Those are the cloud notification settings. The SD settings are where the above poster mentioned

There are three kinds of recording available in the Wyze app:

  1. Cloud motion/sound event: These are enabled in the camera settings (gear icon) > Event Recording. Also make sure that the Detection Zone under Detection Settings is not missing the area of motion. These are played back in the Events tab.
  2. microSD card recording: This is enabled in Advanced Settings > Local Storage and can be set to continuous or event only recording. This is played back by pressing the View Playback button on the live stream. This is completely independent from #1.
  3. Record button on live stream or playback: This saves to your phone’s camera roll or gallery, in real time, whatever is being played in the live stream or view playback. Note that it isn’t available when playing cloud events. It is viewed by tapping More and then the Album button, or by leaving the Wyze app and viewing the Wyze album in your phone’s photos or gallery app. This type of recording ceases when you leave the Wyze app.

More info on setting these up can be found in the Support Site.

Thanks to all that replied. Now I have a better understanding of the type of recordings.
