The Detection Zone feature allows you to define a specific area that you want your Wyze Cam Pan to detect motion in. Everything outside of the zone is ignored and will not trigger an Event video (if Motion Detection is turned on) or Motion Tracking (if Motion Tracking is turned on). You can use Detection Zones to exclude frequently or publicly accessed areas, such as sidewalks or roads, or to only watch an area you care about like a doorway.
To set up a Detection Zone, enter the live stream view on your Wyze app, tap the Settings > Detection Settings > Detection Zone. By default, Detection Zone is toggled off so motion detection occurs in the full screen (full field of view of the camera). To set a Detection Zone, toggle Detection Zone on. Drag the corners of the box to set your motion detection target area. The Detection Zone will be saved automatically.
To turn off the Detection Zone, tap the Settings icon and select Detection Settings then Detection Zone. Toggle Detection Zone off.
Some behaviors to note:
- If you have Motion Tagging turned on, Motion Tagging will frame motion that occurs anywhere in the full screen, not only motion in the detection zone. However, only motion detected in the detection zone will trigger other actions based on your settings (Event video, IFTTT actions, etc).
Note: Motion Tagging is currently only available on the Wyze Cam v2.
Motion Tagging frames motion detected by the camera with a green box. When there are multiple moving objects, the Motion Tagging feature frames the largest moving object in the field of view.
Motion Tagging is turned on/off in the Live Stream view and it will be visible in any recorded videos (playback, Event videos, timelapse, and manually recorded videos) captured while the Motion Tagging feature is turned on. It is not possible to add Motion Tagging to a video that doesn’t have it or to remove it from a video that has it.
To turn Motion Tagging on/off, enter the Live Stream view for your camera, tap the More icon, then tap the Motion Tagging icon to turn the feature on/off. The Motion Tagging icon will be colored when Motion Tagging is turned on, and will be gray when Motion Tagging is turned off. . The Motion Tagging feature can be turned on or off independently for each Wyze Cam v2.
