I installed 2 of these for an upcoming house move ( yes, I’m having a house moved ) off my property. I just found out there’s no time lapse ( that I can find ). I’m now 400 miles away and not able to swap them out before work starts Monday. I “assumed” since the older ones had Timelapse these would also when I swapped the older ones out for these and then left the property.
In a recent AMA event, the Product Manager said Timelapse is coming. They are aiming toward the end of the year or early 2024 though:
Timelapse - Yes, we plan to add this function in the future for our power users. We’re aiming for sometime at the end of this year or early next year. Scheduled recording - No, we don’t plan to implement this anymore. Instead, we’ll support microSD card playback (continuous/event-only) in September or October software updates. Please note that this timeline may be pushed if we need to adjust some more code before release. Travel Mode - No, we don’t plan to add this anymore because the user metrics gathered on Wyze Cam Outdoor showed that features like timelapse and Travel Mode have relatively low usage compared to other security-related functions. -u/Bitter-Painter-3661
Well that’s some suck. Guess I’ll be taking a quick flight to replace cameras or paying someone to click “take a photo” every 10 min for the next 2 weeks. Kinda my fault as the old wireless cam v2 was pointed at the desired item but the new pro w/2k made me purchase and then I ran and installed them as the primary cameras with the old wireless turned to look down a game path. Once I saw a picture, I scooted back home with the intent of “configuring as needed” at home.
Time lapse is so useful for wildlife ( birds hatching ) and fun watching plant growth.
The travel mode is the one item I always wanted to try, but would forget the cameras till mid camp out.
I bought a battery cam pro on the assumption it also would have time lapse. I prefer the direct wifi connection of this unit vice the outdoor cam base. I use time lapse on my 4 outdoor cams all the time (they are plugged into solar panels, as is my new battery cam pro). Please add the time lapse feature to the battery cam pro firmware, I will use it.
Same here. While.i don’t need it, it was nice to have on the old outdoor cam. Hope we get this feature soon.
