@WyzeGwendolyn Is there any update on this?
Come on. Are there any updates on this? This would really be helpful
would love to see this! please bring it back!
Hey. Any chance this is coming back soon?
Just asking for any updates on this. Thanks
Any updates please?
Please give updates
Anyone know the status of this? i just had an issue last night and would love to know when and where my cameras are being logged into
Any news or ETA here? it’s been 3+ years and nothing?
I’d certainly feel more comforted with this option! ESPECIALLY with the solid red light “viewing livestream” has came on Three times-late at night. I only share the app with my husband and his aunt, who lives with us.
Last night just past midnight me and hubby were in back yard checking our a possum that was under our flood drain. Trying to make sure she wasn’t hurt or didn’t have little babies. Upon walking up to the patio we both noticed the cam light was red. Well me an hubby weren’t viewing the live cause we were messing with possum. His aunt had long gone to bed by that point.
Then again tonight, sitting outside and notice the red light on again. So I stare at the camera and after a view seconds of me staring red light went away and the blue light came on. It’s pretty unnerving the more i think about it.
Same issue here. Except I feel like someone is viewing that I didn’t give shared access too. Something like this could help me on confirming this.
The red light also comes on when the camera is recording movement to the cloud. So ironically you moving in front of the camera to view the red light would make the red light come on. It will then stay off for 5 minutes unless you are on Cam Plus, after which it will activate with movement again. With Cam Plus it should activate every time it starts a new recording.
User level access records of access or feature change for shared devices
I agree with all the requests for per user permissions. I would like to expand that beyond just per user permissions to per user records.
Let me better explain what I mean. Anybody that is familiar with how modern network access and admin privileges and user privileges typically works knows that one of the first things that is implemented in a network is per user access records. So in the context of Wyze cameras what I mean is, each time one of the users you’ve given access to your cameras does anything with your camera, to include even just opening their app and accessing the shared cameras live feed and watching it or listening to audio or even any changes they make to the settings of the shared camera. Any of those activities a shared user performs should be logged every time it’s done by any user including the admin or owner. Why this becomes important is it helps you to know if you are sharing your cameras with a large number of people who did what and when they did the action. Having these access records allows you the Admin to know potentially who changed the feature and when they did it as well as knowing who’s listening in on your conversation perhaps or if they did as well as who’s watching your camera and when. At least in my case when I gave others the ability to access my cameras I still forget sometimes that the cameras are there. If I’m talking about a sensitive subject or perhaps discussing with someone else in the room a gift you want to give one of your shared users and you have forgotten about the camera recording everything then that shared user might hear your conversation and that could totally ruin a surprise simply because you forgot about the camera. By having records of each users access to the live feed or a log as well of anything they change in the settings you would at least know whether your secret is “Out of the bag”. Or it may help the Admin/Owner track down who keeps changing a setting and messing things up. Especially if you have several users you’ve given access to your camera too and some of which are not very tech savvy. So this feature which should be much easier to implement and usually is already implemented in most networks would at least give the admin/owner some User level logging features before Wyze is able to program User level controls.
The reason I even bought the Wyze cameras in the first place was I felt like they would be much easier for some of my non-tech savvy family to be able to access and they are relatively inexpensive. I’m handicapped and I recently had major back surgery. So giving family access to those cameras including one in my bedroom was to give them peace of mind since they couldn’t be physically with me 24 hours a day while I am recovering . My father is in his late 70’s and has to take care of my mother since she has needed his help as her health has faded as they have aged. My sister works a full time job and my daughter is in high school. I spend several hours a day alone with no ability to get out of bed without help. So these cameras are also for my own safety. Unfortunately though because there is no user logging it makes it hard to know who accessed what when and/or who changed what settings. Many times those who are not tech savvy don’t even realize they have changed something in the settings. I also think that this feature would be a lot easier to implement than user level access controls and at the very least would allow the admin/owner to know who did what and when they did it.
Unfortunately because of the way these cameras work and I didn’t know this prior to purchasing them you have no control over what individual users can access and you have no log of their activities either. This user level log could be easily implemented within the app itself even as an unencrypted text file that then could be queried by the camera owners app to keep a “Master log.” In their app.
Hopefully Wyze sees this request and implements at the very least user level logging until they can give us user level controls.

User accessible logs / action logs
Would be great to be able to troubleshoot, or see what actions were pressed by what user.
This way we can figure out if someone is pressing a function or if the device is potentially defective saving support time.
I am in complete agreement. Have family member in the same situation (not fully self-sufficient) who will remain alone for parts of the day and it’s important to be able to check on them often, myself and my sisters are doing it for a family member and I am also doing together with my wife for my in-laws. Having record to access is also a question of safety and security because in case one of us accidentally leaked the credentials and someone is logging into the account. That would alert us and as soon as we find out it wasn’t any of us (like someone accessing at night and was none of us) then we could immediately change the password and restore security.
I’ve given access to maybe 10 people, this is appropriate per my situation, I see the light turn red on cam showing me it’s being accessed but I’d line to be able to check to see which user is accessing it. Can there be a log that shows times that cameras were accessed and by which user? Thank you.
A history log where I can check who was watching the live stream
I have shared my shop cameras with several people and I keep noticing the red led on all the time. I feel that as soon as I have an obvious look towards the camera(s), the red led turns into blue. Nobody from the people I shared the camera with are confirming that they watched the stream. It would be great to have a log of what account was watching the stream and what time.

Message Notification if another user is viewing/listening on Camera
I feel that a message notification to your phone indicating when another user is watching or listening in on the Wyze Camera. Ruined surprises due to audio intrusion and other instances. Just a suggestion.
For any shareable Wyze camera, add the ability for the owner to get a notification when a shared user accesses the live stream video.
