Scheduled recording?

How do I set up scheduled recording please?

I would like to see the camera to record between say 7am to 7pm upon motion on week days.

Can someone please show me the steps? Thank you very much in advance.

Hi there, thanks for your help, but I’m not entirely clear on what to do.

I’ve set up I’M AWAY at 7AM, on “automate”, with actions “turn on the camera”. This short cut is shown on the main screen. Does this mean the camera will automatically turn on at 7AM, regardless of if I press the “I’M AWAY” shortcut or not?


These are my settings. Will the camera be automatically triggered by the time set and execute actions? Or would I still need to manually tap these shortcuts?

My understanding is they will automatically trigger

@WyzeJasonJ is correct. they are triggered by the set time. I use the automate triggers in conjunction with cameras/ sensors at different times and I love it. you can make sure they are working in the shortcut history. it will tell you if the shortcut was executed at that certain time.

The KB article is vague at best. It should also explain the differences between schedules and device triggers, and also when to use one over the other.

I hear you. I would personally like to see Wyze how to videos that are up to date and match the current Wyze app. Many of the support articles are obsolete and way behind. A short video should be included on each support page. Most of the guides give very little depth on how to use the Wyze app and all of its features. The support articles are scattered across multiple pages which are time consuming and frustrating for everyone. With all of the new products being added to the support pages, It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It is time to reorganize the support pages and make them more user friendly.
