Just encountered this new feature. It is an exercise in frustration to setup a simple rectangular zone.
My fingers are NOT fat, but toggling the state of a cell is hit-or-miss, usually miss. So what used to take a few seconds, now takes more like a minute. While I’ll speculate that the grid is a “wow” for some customers, I was content with the rectangle and would like it back.
Did Wyze consider, that if you re-aim a camera it’s once more a pain to re-establish the desired zone?
I have not experienced this. Sometimes if motion infringes on a piece of the allowable spot, it will notify. Do you an image with the Green rectangle of where motion was sensed? If so, can you post it?
@WayneHavens if you are talking about a WCO. then keep in mind the PIR wakes your Cam up and the Detection Zone is supplemental. This function works differently beween the WCO and the other cams. It appears that on a WCO, it kicks in after the initial PIR Area Detection. So, it will not prevent the PIR from waking up from movement in the PIR Area
I have three v3 cams placed around my property and was eagerly awaiting the detection grid (as the single rectangle is next to useless with the surrounding foliage, etc in NZ.)
I have the latest Wyze app (v2.19.14) and my phone is android 7.0.
All v3 cameras are on the latest firmware (126.96.36.1990).
Looking at the detection settings, I still only have access to the rectangle and there is no grid option visible/available.
I’ve tried re-installing the app afresh and power cycling all cameras but with no luck. If it helps at all, the settings menu for each camera now takes about 5-6 seconds to load when it used to be instant.
Any ideas why the grid option isn’t appearing?
Thanks in advance
