I found my solution. As many on this forum has recommended, the awesome app TinyCam Pro is what you’ll need. It supports email notifications (with snapshots) on motion detection, it supports granular motion detection areas (much better than Wyze app), as well as record to SD card, record to FTP, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. There’s a ton of features in this app and it was on sale during Black Friday, so only $2.99 or something. Worth getting it even at full price.
Best thing of all, you can monitor multiple cameras with TinyCam Pro and can enable a web server to view the cameras live as well (you may need to set up port forwarding if you want to access the web server from a remote network, e.g. from your work office).
Anyway, now I can simply check my email for WyzeCam snapshots and this takes like 3 seconds. Much faster and more efficient than going through the app on my phone and then wait for it to download and then play a 5 second clip.
@uWaterloo, are you trying to capture an image based on motion activities occurring at a specific time of the day? E.g. if there is motion at 12pm, then capture image? Or are you trying to capture an image at exactly 12pm, regardless if there is motion or not? If it’s the first one, then you could set up TinyCam Pro with email notifications on motion detection. Unfortunately, TinyCam currently doesn’t support setting up a schedule for motion detection. So basically, it runs 24/7 and whenever it detects a motion, it’ll send out an email with snapshot (or take a recording and upload to FTP / Dropbox, etc. Depends on your TinyCam settings).
Then, once you have the emails with the snapshot, you could do some filtering on them. I use Gmail and you can do stuff like “older_than:2h”, which means only show emails that are older than 2 hours. You could probably do some granular filtering based on time and date.
If you are keen, you can even set up a Google Script that automatically fetches your emails (based on the Gmail label), then it’ll strip the email attachments to your Google Drive. You can then use Google’s Backup & Sync application and add your Google Drive account, then have it sync your Google Drive folders (you can specify just one folder to sync, instead of all folders in your Google Drive) to your PC. So essentially, you could just open a folder on your machine and look at all the attachments (snapshots) taken from your WyzeCam, without having to check your emails. I have multiple security cameras at home, both indoor and outdoor. I essentially check all my snapshots within one folder or if I am on the go, I can just check the emails. Quick and simple, no need to bother with 5 seconds of recording playback per camera.
Oh and here’s the Google Script I was referring to. Note that you can configure “Triggers” for Google Script, so that is another time-based setting that might help you, in addition to the Gmail filters.
