I have a group of Wyze v2 named “home1”, “home2”… then grouped as “home cams”. My goal is to record 24x7 to the SD card, then only report motion events between 9pm-5am at night. However, I have having trouble with setting the right rule…
What I have done so far:
- for every camera, in advanced settings → local storage, I have set “continous recording”
- notification → send notifications is set to “off” since I would be sleeping anyway, just want to see any motion event in the events section the next day
- in event recording, schedule = all day, and detects motion is “off” since I am setting this during the day, so I plan to use a rule instead
- under schedules and automation, I created a rule for “home cams” to turn on motion from 9pm-11:59pm and another from 12am to 5am… I was hoping to do a single rule from 9pm-5am, but the app error says “start time must be earlier then end time” so I assume it can’t cross midnight.
So the problem is, the rule doesn’t work! There is no event recorded at night when I walk around to test.
Can someone help?
