Want to take a look at the live streams from your Wyze cameras without launching the Wyze app? If so, good news: Wyze just introduced a web view for live cam broadcasts and recorded events, though you’ll need to sign up for Wyze’s paid subscription service to use it.
Still in beta Wyze Webview made its debut on Tuesday and allows you to monitor live feeds from your various Wyze cameras in a web browser.
The Live Stream tab shows you simultaneous streams from your cameras in live mosaics, with audio, or you can expand an individual stream to a full screen view.
If you want, you can organize your cameras into groups and view the grouped sources in full screen mode on the web, but for now, you will need to do the actual grouping in the Wyze app.
Wyze Webview also allows you to review recorded sound or motion events. Just click on the Events tab and you will see tickets for any event on any given day.
Besides the date, you can apply a trio of other filters to the event view. For example, you can select only certain cameras or you can filter motion events by type: package, person, pet, or vehicle. Lastly, you can filter events based on whether they were triggered by motion or sound.
I tested Wyze Webview myself on Wednesday morning, having successfully logged in using the Google Chrome browser on a Windows 10 PC with two-factor authentication enabled. I only have one Wyze camera, the Cam v2, so I couldn’t test bundling, but otherwise I was able to watch the camera’s live feed in mosaic and full-screen mode, as well as review and filter events recorded up to two years ago. weeks.
Overall not bad, but Wyze Webview has its limitations. For now, it is restricted to subscribers to the $ 1.99 / mo Wyze Cam Plus service, which offers cloud storage of recorded video events of any length and without a cooldown period for a single camera, as well as for individuals, packages. , vehicles and pets. detection.
On its official Twitter account, Wyze said that it could eventually bring Webview to free users as well. “We are monitoring how our Cam Plus users interact with the service to determine if a free tier will be possible in the future.” Wyze said in a tweet. “Our cloud provider charges for the number of simultaneous streams, so we need to be a little careful.”
Additionally, Webview currently only supports only three Wyze camera models, including the Wyze Cam v2 other v3, and the Wyze Cam Pan. That leaves out Wyze Cam Outdoor, Wyze Video Doorbell, and Video Doorbell Pro, though Wyze promises that more of his cameras it will eventually be compatible.
