I have finally gotton all my 5 Wyze Cams working (more to be added like 7 to 10 more if things go OK) with Tinycam Pro and it would be great if some one could offer me some add’l insight/tips/etc.
I have multiple questions on best setup/settings when one has multiple FireTV/Fire Sticks. I wish not to slow down my network too much - I have a Gibi Lan - but my internet is around 450kbp. It would be ideal to share recordings (from each Fire Device vs each Fire Device making a recording of the same motion detected which will slow down the network, yet I want to be notified on the device I’m using (like one of the many FireTV/FireSticks (have 7+)
- Does Tincam Pro pro operating or executing from the cloud or the device (like phone, FireTv or FireStick where it’s installed)?
- I have found when I want notifications and recordings that it can slow the devices down or like my phone it can get hot?
- To avoid using the CPU of the device, I’m using On-camera motion detections, seems to speed up process and network and help on device and network lag.
Thus was thinking it might be best have recordings down on FTP server on my NAS (local lan) but issue I’m missing the thumbnails on my computer. I have used the onedrive setup and like the thumbnails and can see on computer. This it looks like I’m duplicating recordings and this will slow down the network? Recording to the device (such as a Firestick or FireTV seems to cause some lag too and there is not a whole lot of space on those devices and I don’t want to create recordings from each of these devices.
Also like to know, if I use the TinyCam Pro record to Onedrive , will it take the Wyze recordings and just copy from Wyze Cloud to my Onedrive in the cloud which would be faster than taking the recordings to the device where the app is installed and then send it to Onedrive in the cloud, which would be slower and cause network congestion?
I’m thinking I should have the device that is on all the time (like a firetv/firestick) that is not used often) and can act as the webserver where recordings and notifications are some how shared between the devices?
I would love to use the TinyCam Pro background service but it tends to cause lag. I’m still fine tunning camera’s where I’m getting false notifications. Like it to pop up on Firetv’s with a live feed if there is a notification alert when using that FireTV/FireStick?
Finally after I get one Fire device setup with Tinycam Pro, I’m exporting the setting to my onedrive then importing then on the next FireTv/FireStick device which speeds up the process faster.
