Like you, we are excited about Wyze Cam Plus Lite, a new service that is basically free for all Wyze Cam owners. But Wyze has someone else gigantic Announcement for its customers – after years of only supporting microSD cards up to 32GB, Wyze Cams will finally support higher capacity local storage solutions.
If you use a microSD card with your Wyze Cam, you can save footage locally instead of storing it in the cloud. More importantly, it unlocks continuous video recording without the need for a Cam Plus subscription. no more 12 second videos! While a 32GB card can hold about a week of continuous footage, many customers prefer a larger card that holds twice or three times as much video.
Here are the updates mentioned in Wyze’s forum post:
- We just got a license for an exFAT patent and will officially support microSDXC cards larger than 32GB! This is already included in the latest Wyze Cam v3 firmware and will be added to the rest of the cameras in the next firmware updates.
- If you’re using local storage, the event has a button that takes you straight to the corresponding timestamp on the microSD card so you can view the full local storage event.
- We’re adding 30 second rewind and forward buttons so you can jump through microSD cards faster. This will be live in mid-February.
In addition to expanded support for microSD cards, Wyze is adding two small improvements to the local storage experience. When you press the event button for a local video, you will be automatically directed to its event timestamp (the part of the video that contains motion). In addition, Wyze plans to add 30-second rewind and fast-forward buttons for local videos this February.
At the time of writing, only the Wyze Cam V3 is updated to support microSDXC cards larger than 32GB. Other Wyze Cam products will have this feature in their upcoming firmware updates.
