Thanks wyze for not alerting me when a thief actually broke into our property. But yeah love the wind blowing the trees, bunny rabbits and nothing happening alerts. 👍

  • GitHub repo motion

    Motion, a software motion detector. Home page: https://motion-project.github.io/ (by Motion-Project)

    It is indeed annoying. My old jerry-rigged set up (Motion Project, old Android phone, and a 10 y.o. netbook) was able to filter blowing trees, clouds, birds, etc way better than my Wyzecam V3 can. As they say, if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself, but until we get RTSP we can't do it ourselves.

  • GitHub repo WyzeHacks

    Hacks I discovered allowing Wyze camera owners to do customizations (by FiveLeavesLeft)

    Five Leaves Left WyzeHacks This is a community-made firmware that includes support for RTSP (among other things) Recordings can be sent to another system via NFS but the camera/wyze app will not have access to them or the sdcard at all. It is also likely susceptible to being broken (no longer installable, but if you have it it will keep working) by future Wyze firmware updates. Meaning it may or may not work for you now, and if it does but you go back to the official firmware for a time, it may not work when you try it again in the future. Once you've flashed it you should be good if you don't go back to the official one.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo docker-wyze-bridge

    RTMP/RTSP/HLS bridge for Wyze cams in a docker container

    Docker-wyze-bridge This one is more likely to continue working, even if it gets broken temporarily by Wyze updates. It requires a separate system (computer) running Docker to act as a bridge (simulates a Wyze app to connect to the camera and capture the video stream, then redistributes the stream as RTSP) This will allow you to still access the camera from the Wyze app though updates to how the app works could potentially break this software. It's less likely to be a problem as older app versions are usually supported for a while and the wyze-bridge developers would have ample warning of breaking changes and should in theory be able to fix them before you are affected.
