I am suspecting I have an excessive amount of network traffic from my Wyze cams. I have a separate vlan for my Wyze cams.
Disclaimer: I haven’t done an in depth analysis of my network yet.
If SD option is available, each cam below has one and they are all set to “Events Only”
2 Cam Pan
Cam Pan v2
I have 3 questions regarding my various Wyze cams.
Question1. How to completely disable event recording, but still be able to view them in real time from the app.
I have disabled them for event recording. (Basically only set to record from 4:01 AM to 4:02 AM). I don’t know of any other way to disable event recording.
Question 2. For the cams that have SD card option, does writing to the SD card utilize any LAN bandwidth? Obviously when viewing the events or the SD card via the app I understand it does.
Question 3. I noticed that even with “event recording” set as above in #1 (4:01 to 4:02 AM), It STILL records event activity to the SD card all the time. Not continuous, but any time something triggers the cam. Reiterating above, the SD card is set to record “Events Only”, AND recording is set to 4:01 to 4:02 AM.
My goal is to be able to have the cameras on line so I can view them real-time with the app, but not have them record to the SD card or cloud EXCEPT for when I set them “all day” or a specific schedule for when I go away.
I hope this makes sense. Thanks.
