Unfortunately I see quite a few similar posts in the forums which doesn’t bode well.
We have issues with our neighbors and put up a bunch of Wyze cameras. Of course a few days ago something happened and I needed the footage and I found out that they haven’t been recording since about Feb. On the card are recordings for totally random days like 10/04/19, 05/06/20, 12/11/20 and 02/06/21. I have 5 cameras and none of them have been recording, the most recent one is 03/06/21, and they all have about 5 random days most from 2020.
Two of the key things I picked up reading the other posts is to set up a rule to reboot daily, and to use High Endurance cards. Personally I think that if you NEED to reboot something like this daily, then it is a major flaw in the product. I have all new High Endurance cards on their way. I also ordered some Wireless cams and 2 of the Outdoor Ones.
I do want to make sure that I have settings correct on my various cameras.
Right now I have one on the front door. It sends alerts when every little thing moves, including the bugs and birds that fly around. I ended up turning off the notifications. I wish the new Outdoor cams had the IR. I will try to use a wireless one, but my house it really long and I need most of them in the back of the house and I don’t know if the range will be enough.
I NEED all my cameras to record continuously.
I have Cam+ for the two in the back yard, the one by the back gate, and the front door.
The front door and back gate I need to record events and upload to the cloud.
Suggestions on settings to optimize my needs? My existing cams are all v2
