Thanks everyone, i’m sitting this update out, as I’m taking a wait and see approach.
If people are having super success with this update then I will update, If not, I’ll just continue living on with the version I have, but I really want back the version I had previously from last summer.
@WyzeGwendolyn you might want to let the Dev team know . That when I updated my Cameras to the newest firmware, my Motion sensor stopped working. I had to reinstall the motion sensor and the rules that went with it. Now the sensor is a little slow on detection.
I notice now that when I go to one camera and view the playback, if I go to another camera after and view the playback it shows me the exact same times for events as the first camera even though nothing is there.
Same here… Everything seems to be working fine… cameras, cards, Sense hardware, tracking, livestream single & groups, SD playback, controls, event notifications, CMC. Testing under Android 6 & 9 and iOS 9.3.6 & 12.4.1.
Edit: Rules and shortcuts appear to be working fine also.
Do you have continuous or event SD recording? I set mine for event recording. On my Android 9 as soon as I press the back button on the timeline, it says “No more”. If I slide the timeline, I see recorded areas and I can view clips.
On rare occasions that the back button works, it will only go back to a point and not show the earlier recorded areas.
If I press the back button a few times, then I get a network error message. Very frustrating experience.
If I go back 2 app revisions, I don’t see these problems. Neither do I see these problems on my iPad.
If I go back one revision, then it’s worse. The clips don’t play at all. All I see is a static image.
I would consider the “recommendations to update very old Wyze Cam firmware” if a feature is added whereby we can toggle the local recording sensitivity to NOT honor cloud standards. Enforcement of that back in Cam Pan firmware v220.127.116.11 really broke things for me. Presently, the only workaround is to move from Event-based to Continuous recording. Not a solution since continuous recording makes it very cumbersome to find meaningful footage. Allowing us to choose between cloud standards vs original fixed sensitivity w/full-frame image would make me much more open to staying current.
Simply put, the cloud misses a lot of things with the whole cooldown period and what not. The fixed local storage method from prior firmwares was a hedge against this; Much preferable, unless one subscribes to CMC. I’m not a potential subscriber to that service and would like a choice as to how my local recording operates…
EDIT-1: I’ve tested v2.8 of the app and the firmware upgrade notification is CONSTANT, recurring any time you access an individual cam, back out of it, etc. Gone is the ability to suppress these nags. This will drive my parents batty… Dealbreaker for me as well and we’re all staying put @ v2.6.42.
