I agree. This simple but useful functionality is sorely overlooked. Most quality products (at higher costs) have had this feature for years and my favorite cams I use at my house outdoors all have this feature. A simple still photo attached to an email for quick history reviews of your email or during work hours. I don’t like my phone going off 24/7 with notifications for every location and need.
This would be very helpful Wyze!!
I’m very interested
Oddly enough I do get snapshots of videos on my watch with each notification. I have no idea why but this is a great feature and should be on everything. I get a lot of birds and shadows that I can quickly see and ignore.
Those are actually push notifications. I think the original request was to get a photo sent to their email like dlink does. Those notifications disappear with the cloud. The photo snapshots would stay in your email.
Oddly, we get email from forum as notification for new posts but cannot get it with camera.
May be it is intentional design.
Hi Wyze guys , you can save money if you introduce email notification in Wyze Software . Many cameras in the market have this feature and you only need to provide the proper link to email services . You can save money in the cloud (because many users are going to use email notificaciones with Snapshot Pictures and Videos instead a 5 minutes video in Wyze cloud) . Think about it .
My phone gets way too many notifications and I tend not to use it a lot during the day. My Arlo cameras have email notification and I find them super useful since I’m checking my email a lot more often. Would be nice if this was an option provided.
I know it has been said, but I want to add one more User’s request. Email notifications for sound or motion (smoke detector, CO detector) is a necessary part of this system. As already stated, not everyone has access to their phone/tablet, but their email. You send out emails for subscription renewals, promos, etc, so why not alerts?
E-Mail notification is very basic feature. If it is NOT there, then I’m signing off from Waze. We do NOT want constant notifications clogging notifications centre. It is annoying. Suggest a best cam where the software supports email notifications + as compact as Wyze as well.
Yes we need email notifications with still pic, like Arlo and most others
Wyzecam Failsafe Email Notifications
I’ve been giving thought to the increasing & inconvenient number of AWS outages. Is it possible to add an outbound SMTP client to the cameras, similar to what Amcrest has? The logic would be that, if a clip could not be uploaded, it would be emailed instead. And optionally, AWS could be entirely bypassed and all clips could be emailed.
Still Images & E-mail Events
I came to Wyze from a camera that sends event triggers in E-mail as images.
For me it would be less important to capture full motion (which I believe the other camera does as well, I just do not use that feature), than it is to identify what is in the picture (e.g. nightvision and image clarity).
Ideally each local, cloud, and e-mail should be a choice. E-mail wouldn’t cost Wyze anything as independent from its servers, and for that it could also include no timeout periods at no charge. Cloud is an attractive enough feature that people will still want to use it, but it doesn’t make sense as the only non-local capture storage.
