Agreed, if you are set on absolutely wanting to know which camera the sound is coming from without any doubts then choose only one camera to play the sound. This would be a great additional feature to have, for sure.
On the other hand, I have 2 kids and want to be able to monitor them visually and audibly at the same time, not just hear 1 of them at a time…both of them.
Thus, making it user selectable to choose which camera or cameras to hear the audio from would be the best for everyone’s situation.
Here is a screen shot of my setup. Notice the somewhat transparent icon in the lower left corner of each camera that is connected. All I have to do is press that icon to toogle the sound on/off for each individual camera while in the multi camera view area.
Another item to mention is not just audio but also BACKGROUND AUDIO for one camera or multiple cameras. This means that the sound will continue to be audible but without the picture if you close the app to do other things, turn the display of the phone off, and/or lock the phone. My current setup does this as well. This makes the cameras act as sort of a baby monitor when needed.
One thing that would be great is if you can have volume play if you want it on the group camera display. I would like to use it as a baby monitor as well and would love to be able to hear both cameras as well see them at the same time. Is this something that is possible. As of now i have not seen this happen but with some script to the software I don’t think this would be an issue and also a great selling feature for baby monitors ;). Thanks again everyone at Wyze and keep hitting them home runs!
I too would like to see this. Right now I am running 2 iPads, one set to group mode and one set to the individual camera I most want sound from. I thought I had gotten away from needing multiple tablets when simultaneous streaming was introduced!
I also would like the option of selecting the audios of any combination of cameras. I love the Foscam way above, but if you can’t do that you could bring back the “go to” button that appeared at the bottom of the tile when you touched it, and add an "enable audio” checkbox next to that. If you do it that way, you’ll probably need to add a visible indicator that audio is enabled,
Audio while in group view was temporarily removed for the release due to a bug. My understanding is it will be back. But if you tap a camera in group view to bring it into single view, then you should be able to get audio then.
I’m curious about one thing you said: with the app logged into the same account on multiple devices, you should be seeing the same groupings on both devices. Are you not seeing that? Or is one of the devices logged into an account to which the cameras are shared?
I am logged into the same account on multiple devices. The first iPad is showing group mode (no audio), and on the second I tapped on a camera in group view to bring it into single view so I could hear the audio. So I have a silent 4 cameras on one iPad, a audio-enabled single camera on the other.
That is an interesting work around but I do not have extra iPads/tablets just laying around the house. Thanks for letting us know about your work around because that could definitely help others who might have the extra hardware to do so.
