Multiple Administrator accounts

Hi Team,

I have set up my Wyze Cams, can i enable another user to be an administrator?

When i am in playback mode, is there a way to indicate the event in the time line?

When in playback mode, is it possible to have an option to playback in 2x, 4x, 8x 16x faster instead of the true realtime?

Look forward to your reply.


If you want a trusted member in your household to have full control over your cameras, just install the app on their phone using the same credentials.

If you have an event you want to find in the timeline of the onboard SD card, just press the SD card icon that says Playback when viewing the event. The 12s event will jump to the same time on the SD card to see as much of the event as you set the SD card to record.

You can’t currently view anything in fast playback when you are on the SD card from the app, but you can pull the card and put it on a desktop, where VLC will allow you to do just that.


Hi Team,

Thanks for your prompt reply.

Cheers Phillip

No problem. But we are not Wyze employees, just fellow users like yourself. :slight_smile:

Hey thanks Newshound! That’s one feature I did not know about. OK, I don’t use events much at all, so I had not noticed that - but it works great.


You might be interested in this #wishlist item for more control over sharing:

I have six cams at a community center. Three people share the same credentials so we can all do everything. Now that 2FA will be required, this will break down unless we each have our own account and phone number for SMS. We all need owner access!! Will I be forced to dump Wyze?

Please explain what it means to “share credentials”? Does it mean to enter the same email address and to enter the same 6-digit (or whatever it is nowadays) code?

@whynoth Hope this helps to answer your question.

Never share your Wyze account credentials with anyone you do not trust completely with your account. If you do, they’ll be able to access and change your details - even your password - without your permission.

Instead, ask your friends and family to create their own free Wyze account so you can share devices with them without compromising your login credentials. For more information on the Sharing feature, check out How to Use Sharing.
