How does cloud recording work?

When you turn on one of the detection options, like motion or sound detection, your Wyze Cam will automatically record a 12-second Event video. After the 12-seconds there is a 5-minute cooldown until the next Event Video is recorded. 

Event videos are automatically stored on the AWS cloud via end-to-end encryption and can be viewed for up to 14 days in the Events tab of the Wyze app. After 14 days, Event videos are deleted and cannot be recovered.

There is no subscription involved, no trial, just constant use with a 14-day time expiration for individual video clips.

The optional Complete Motion Capture service will remove the cooldown period and allow your Wyze Cam to record longer than 12-seconds and as there is motion detected. Learn more about this added feature by clicking here.
