Can Wyze Cam v3 record events continuously?

Yes, but there are limits without Cam Plus.

Wyze Cam v3 can record nonstop motion, but only with the optional Cam Plus service.

Without that service, there will be the standard 5-minute "cooldown" period between similar* event videos that are stored in the cloud. This means that when there is continuous motion, the camera 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 combines Person Detection and Complete Motion Capture. This service removes the cooldown period and allows Wyze Cam v3 to record continuously for as long as motion is detected, with no 12-second limit.
