Control cam

Why does Wyze limit the time of 12 seconds for my cam to record? I mean I own the cam right? Or does Wyze still have control? If I own the cam outright it is now my property and I should be able to the time limit to what I want, not Wyze.

There is no limit when you record locally (to an installed SD card). The 12 second limit and 5 minute cooldown between recordings is for uploading Events to the cloud. Cloud space incurs cost to Wyze.

Yes. But you do not own the “cloud” server to which you’re sending all those 12 second clips. They are doing that for you for free. It’s a pretty sweet deal as it is. They offer add-on service to increase the cloud storage if that’s what you want.
