Note - Currently, the Wyze Cams are unable to record to a MicroSD card for extended periods of time without an internet connection. This is planned to change in a future update.
Wyze Cam supports 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB microSD cards in FAT32 format. We recommend Class 10 for optimal performance. Lower class microSD cards have slower speeds for file transfer and their performance varies based on scenario, which is why we recommend Class 10.
Please be aware that some MicroSD card manufacturers may not cover use in smart home cameras under their warranties. Our warranty does not cover 3rd party products as covered in our Terms and Service under line 4E. Click here to purchase a 32GB Class 10 microSD card that is compatible with Wyze Cam and covered under our warranty.
The video file size will depend on whether your Wyze Cam is recording HD or SD video. You can toggle between HD and SD video on the live stream view of your camera.
For HD, the video size is approximately 400MB/hour (~10GB/day). For SD, the video size is approximately 130MB/hour (3-4GB/day).
Your Wyze Cam will overwrite the oldest footage when it runs out of room on the microSD card.
|Card Size||SD Video||HD Video|
|8GB||2-3 Days||0.5-1 Day|
|16GB||4-5 Days||1-2 Days|
|32GB||7-8 Days||2-3 Days|
*Note: The camera will recognize larger cards (64GB+) that use exFAT, but these cards are less stable and are more likely to experience issues in the long run. While there are ways to force larger cards onto the FAT32 format, they are less likely to be recognized by the camera and may corrupt your data.
