I am trying to record from a V2 camera using Android. I don’t have an SD card, so where do the recordings go?
There are two types of recording. If you have an SD card in the camera you can set it to record either events like motion or continuously and you can view those recordings by clicking “Playback” in the app while viewing the camera stream. The other type of recording are event recordings and they are 12 second clips with a 5 minute cool down in between motion events. You can download those and if you do, they should save to your devices camera roll.
@Loki explains recording methods well in a previous thread.
There are three kinds of recording available in the app:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
