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 Cam Plus service will remove the cooldown period and allow your Wyze Cam to record videos longer than 12-seconds when there is motion detected. With this service, you'll be able to record full-length videos, receive real-time alerts when people are detected, and filter all of your video clips with people in them
