Please allow users to remove the green tracking boxes on Cam Pan V3

I just replaced my Eufy pan camera with the Wyze Cam Pan V3 after the Eufy camera stopped tracking like the gears wore out. However, the Eufy cam allowed me to turn off the green tracking boxes and it was wonderful. As of yet Wyze doesn’t allow me to do this. Personally, I find the green tracking boxes more of a novelty than of any real use. It would be great to be able to remove them and just see the normal video. They’re kinda annoying and distracting. Please provide that option in an update. Thanks Wyze.


You can disable these in the cams settings > detection settings. It’s called motion tagging.


Wyze app Home > your Cam Pan v3 > Settings (gear icon upper right) > Detection Settings > Motion tagging (toggle off)


Already answered twice, but I agree, the Motion Tagging is about the first thing I turn off on a new camera. It’s cute for the first 30 seconds on your first Wyze camera. After that it’s just annoying.
About the only use for it is if you are getting motion events that you can’t figure out what is the trigger, turn on tagging to figure that out, then turn tagging back off.


Thank you everyone! I was assuming this would actually do away with motion tracking. I now see they’re two different functions.


I don’t have that option? Has it been moved somewhere else? (I have the most recent app update and firmware)

I just checked the Android and iOS apps and the setting is still there. This is a Cam Pan v3 topic. If you are using a different cam type, the setting is located in a different location. What model of cam are you using and what is the app version number and firmware version number?


I use Cam Plus Lite. From the Home Screen / Live View of each of my v3 cameras I click the 3 dots labeled More. From there I can turn Motion Tagging on or off. BTW, I am still on App version 2.48.

Yep, turns out it was in the 3 dot menu instead of settings.


Then you have a Cam Pan v1 or v2.

I just replaced my older wyze pan cam v2 with the wyze pan cam v3 and can not get rid of the ugly GREEN BOX. I HATE THE GREEN BOX. I still want the canera to track movements but do not want to see a big ugly green box in my videos.

Scroll up, the procedure is shown above: Please allow users to remove the green tracking boxes on Cam Pan V3 - #3 by Seapup

The green box is only shown on Liveview but never recorded.

I forgot all about that setting. I did get used to seeing the green box.

OK, my mistake. The setting to remove the Green Box is under the camera detection settings called Motion Tagging. Turn off Motion Tadding and the Green Box goes away. Nice…
