I’ve identified what may be a minor but universal software bug. It’s easily reproducible, but for isolation purposes, I’ve only tested on an iPhone 7 Plus using iOS 12.1.4 and the Wyze app version 2.1.21 using firmware 220.127.116.11 on the Wyze Cam Pan. I’m submitting here rather than submitting a bug report elsewhere to allow Wyze and the Community to go through their public isolation or confirmation process.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1: Navigate to the LAST Event video captured.
2: Press Record and let it continue until it continues recording beyond the end of the Event video.
3: Press Stop, Pause, backward/forward arrow in the Event timeline.You will receive one of three different error messages depending on which option you use to attempt to stop the recording.
The Recording continues regardless of which option you choose to attempt to stop recording. The “only” way to stop recording is to press the iPhone’s home button and swipe up to close the app. As a result, I don’t believe any recording is actually captured nor appears in your album.
The obvious workaround is to manually press Stop to stop recording before reaching the end of the last Event video.
However, the errors suggest that the existing code for recording does not currently process the end of all existing event videos and simply moves to the (nonexistent) next Event video without stopping recording automatically. So manual recording and overlap of videos is likely as standard as underlap, which may be convenient for many, but also counterintuitive to those who simply want to ‘Record This Clip’.
So this bug may also be reflected as a suggestion for a toggle between Automatic/Manual Recording, with a new automatic per clip detection option added to the existing manual (start and stop) selection of beginning and ending points.
