Locally saved CMC

Some reading for y’all
# Wyze Services


Sometimes, you get a notification, too; just one, if the event happens to be the beginning of the cooldown period. If you don’t get a notification, then there is at least one recent notification. Use it as a starting point.

For this to really work, I suggest recording event-only. If not, you’ll get frustrated searching for the important events.

This is almost equivalent to RTSP and/or NAS function.

I think we should wish for Wyze to drive the development of the RTSP firmware as an alternative Offline/LAN only firmware which will feature bare minimum of RTSP/NAS function and motion detection only.

I know that internet had become a necessity on every home nowadays, but not everyone have fast and reliable internet connection and also not all people want their data floating on the cloud, security and privacy wise. It’s good to have an easy way to share online something nice, funny or scary that happened in your home, but I don’t think everybody wants to live on “Big Brother’s” house.

The Wyze guide posted above was helpful in explaining the ins and outs of SD recording, but I have one additional question:

If a camera is subscribed to CMC service, and it Has an SD card installed, does the 5 minute cool down between videos still affect the locally stored SD card videos, or does subscribing to CMC turn the cool down period off globally on that camera?

The 5 minute cool down never affects the SD recording, because that function is completely separate.

There are three kinds of recording available in the Wyze app:

  1. Cloud motion/sound event: These are enabled in the camera settings (gear icon) > Event Recording. Also make sure that the Detection Zone under Detection Settings is not missing the area of motion. These are played back in the Events tab.
  2. microSD card recording: This is enabled in Advanced Settings > Local Storage and can be set to continuous or event only recording. This is played back by pressing the View Playback button on the live stream. This is completely independent from #1.
  3. Record button on live stream or playback: This saves to your phone’s camera roll or gallery, in real time, whatever is being played in the live stream or view playback. Note that it isn’t available when playing cloud events. It is viewed by tapping More and then the Album button, or by leaving the Wyze app and viewing the Wyze album in your phone’s photos or gallery app. This type of recording ceases when you leave the Wyze app.

More info on setting these up can be found in the Support Site.
