I just purchased 2 Wyze v2 cams, and really love them…everything except how event notifications are sent.
I don’t appear to be alone in this, and wanted to confirm a few things and/or ask a question that has probably already been answered somewhere.
I am using an SD card, with continuous recording.
My understanding is that there are 3 separate “events” that can be triggered.
- Person Motion
So within a 5min window, you should be able to have 3 of those event notifications sent, but then a cooldown period is enforced where NO notifications are sent.
This is the sticking point for me and it appears many other users, as pointed out previously anything could trigger a false positive, and then you have no way of knowing what happens during that 5min blackout period unless you constantly scrub the SD video.
I see that the concern from Wyze is cost associated with AWS increased event notifications. Is there no other way to trigger a text or email notification to the user? Is this something that is being considered at all? This is really the only thing that is missing from Wyze that would truly make this a remarkable cam system.
I’m not sure if only recording event notifications to the SD card would be a better option, as you still have the same issue of not receiving notifications within the 5min cool down window.
Anyways, sorry if this is a repost and thanks for your help in advance.
