Event Recording Schedule

Create an Event Recording Schedule to set when your Wyze Cam generates Event videos, and if they are triggered by detecting Motion and/or Sound.

Event Recording Schedule

Don’t want Events recorded while you’re home in the evenings? Set your schedule to only record Events during the day.

To edit your Event Recording schedule:

  1. In the Wyze app, tap on your Wyze Cam. 

  2. Tap the Settings gear on the top right.

  3. Tap Event Recording > Schedule.

    1. Want detected Events to be recorded all the time?

      • Tap the toggle next to All Day to turn it On

    2. Only want detected Events to be recorded sometimes, like when you’re not home?

      1. Tap the toggle next to All Day so that it’s Off and greyed out.

      2. Choose your Start time

      3. Choose your End Time.

      4. Tap the back arrow < to save your changes.

  4. Tap which Events you want to trigger a recording.

    • Detects motion: An Event will be recorded when your camera detects motion.

    • Detects sound: An Event will be recorded when your camera detects sound.

  5. Your changes will be saved automatically.

Note: Update your Event Recording Schedule for each Wyze Cam you’d like a schedule for. 

Detects Sound and Motion

You can set Wyze Cam to record a 12-second Event Video when it detects motion and/or sound. 

To toggle your detection settings: 

  1. In the Wyze app, tap on your Wyze Cam. 

  2. Tap the Settings gear on the top right.

  3. Tap Event Recording.

  4. Tap which Events you want to trigger a recording.

    • Detects motion: An Event will be recorded when your camera detects motion.

    • Detects sound: An Event will be recorded when your camera detects sound.

Note: If you don’t toggle on either option, the camera will not record Event Videos.

Cool Down Period

There is a 5-minute cool down or “rest” period after Sound or Motion triggers an Event Video. Unless you have Cam Plus, which removes this cool down and gives you full length videos, there will be 5 minutes between every 12-second Event Video.

Sound and Motion are separate triggers. If sound triggers an Event Video, but during the 5-minute cool down the camera detects motion, another Event Video will be recorded.

Smart Sound Recognition

Smart Sound Recognition uses an advanced algorithm that recognizes the unique sound patterns of smoke alarms and CO monitors. With Smart Sound Recognitions turned on, alarms will generate a 12-second Event Video and send a push notification to your phone so that you can act quickly.

To turn on Smart Sound Recognition:

  1. In the Wyze app, tap on your Wyze Cam. 

  2. Tap the Settings gear on the top right.

  3. Tap Alarm Settings.

  4. Tap the toggle On next to the alarms you want to trigger an Event Video.

    • Smoke alarm sound: An Event will be recorded when your camera detects a smoke alarm sound.

    • CO alarm sound: An Event will be recorded when your camera detects a CO alarm sound.

Note: This setting will work even if you have Detect Sound toggled to Off under your Event Recording settings.
