Why is there a 5-minute delay from recording to notification?
There shouldn’t be a five minute delay from recording to notification. Notification should happen within 10-15 seconds. However, there is a five minute delay between cloud recordings. This is there to enable Wyze to provide the cloud storage for free. Is this what you are experiencing?
That could be it. How can I get instant response from the camera?
You wont get true, instant response as it still has to go up to the cloud. The 12-second video records, gets sent to the cloud and then the notification is sent.
Another thing, If you use either the motion sensors or the contact sensors, once those trigger, the notification should be fairly instant.
