Wyze cam

Post by Hermielover121 » Sun Jun 07, 2020 10:56 am

I recently got a Wyze cam but I did not put it on the wall since I might upgrade the tank soon so I just put it in the outside of the tank up close to the glass. How do you guys get all those recordings? I know about micro sd cards and I don’t have one but isn’t it supposed to record then stop then record again. Mine only record one short time and that’s all for the night. I have many questions but I will try to make this short. How are yours so clear in the night? When u put it on night mode it is not as clear as some others. Thanks in advance

I put mine in the tank, that's probably why it's clearer. You may have it set on motion detector. I have an sd card in all my cameras.

Without the SD card you're stuck using their free recording service. It's 12 seconds at a time, once every 5 minutes.

My SD card slot must be broken on the camera, it will not read any card.

Wyze has a subscription service for $1.49 a month that allows for unlimited recording length and no wait between them. I've been doing that instead.

Oh, and my videos are incredibly grainy, to the point where there is no detail

Oh that’s different I don’t know why but some I see are so clear? I guess it all depends. Thank you both for the help
