Can Wyze Cam v3 record events continuously?

Yes, Wyze Cam v3 can record events continuously.

Wyze Cam v3 can record continuous motion, but you'll need a subscription to Cam Plus for uninterrupted recordings.

Without Cam Plus, there is a standard 5-minute "cooldown" period between similar* event videos. This means that when there is continuous motion, but no Cam Plus, Wyze Cam v3 will only capture one 12-second event video every five minutes.

Additional notes:

  • *There is no cooldown period between different types of event recordings (Sound, Motion, Person are all different types of events).
    • Example: If motion occurs, then sound occurs, the camera will capture both events in two different 12-second event videos.
  • You can add a microSD card and set it to "Record events only" to record longer videos to your microSD card when motion is detected without a cooldown period.
  • Cam Plus removes the cooldown period and allows Wyze Cam v3 to record continuously for as long as motion is detected, with no 12-second limit or cooldown.
