How to Mute Sound on Wyze Cam

How to Mute Sound on Wyze Cam

Hello there! I want to share with you a simple guide on how you can turn off the sound on your Wyze Cam. Are you ready? Let’s get started!

First, you’ll need to open up the Wyze app on your phone. Go ahead and find the icon for the app on your home screen, and give it a tap to open it up.

Once the app is open, you should see a list of your Wyze cameras. Find the camera that you want to mute and select it. This will take you to the live feed for that camera.

Now, take a look at the bottom of the screen. You’ll see some icons down there. One of them looks like a speaker. Give that icon a tap, and you’ll see the sound get crossed out, indicating that it has been muted.

That’s it! You’ve successfully disabled the sound on your Wyze Cam. It’s as simple as that!

If you ever want to turn the sound back on, just follow the same steps and tap the speaker icon again to unmute it.

I hope this guide has been helpful for you. Enjoy using your Wyze Cam without sound, if that’s what you prefer. Have a great day!

How to Disable Sound on Wyze Cam

Hey there! So, let’s talk about the Wyze Cam. It’s this awesome device for keeping an eye on your home, and it’s super affordable. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this thing. But, like anything else, it’s not perfect. Luckily, the folks who made it are always open to feedback and are constantly making improvements based on what users like you have to say.

Now, there’s one downside to the Wyze Cam that some people have been talking about – the lack of a “disable sound” feature. Well, here’s the deal: you can’t exactly mute the live audio while streaming, but hey, at least you can turn off the sound on the recorded footage. It’s not a perfect solution, but it’s something.

Okay, let’s get into how you can disable sound recording on your Wyze Cam.

How to Turn Off Sound Recording on Wyze Cam

You won’t be able to completely disable sound on your Wyze Cam, but you can make sure that the audio doesn’t get recorded along with the video. The live video feed will still have sound, but we’ll talk about that later. For now, let’s focus on turning off sound recording for the videos.

To do this, you’ll need to use the Wyze app on your Android or iPhone. If you’re already using the camera, then you already have the app. So here’s what you need to do:

Disable Sound on Wyze Cam

  1. To get started, open the Wyze app on your device.
  2. From the Devices home screen of the app, select the Wyze Cam. If you don’t see this screen right after launching the app, look for it in the bottom left corner of your screen.
  3. At the top of the screen, tap on the gear icon. This will bring up the Settings menu.
  4. In the Settings menu, choose the Advanced Settings tab, which is the second one in the row.
  5. Scroll down until you find the Record sound option. Here, you’ll see a slider next to it. Move the slider to the left.
  6. If the slider turns white instead of green, that means you’ve successfully disabled sound detection.

Now your Wyze Cam won’t record audio anymore.

How to Turn Off Sound Detection on Wyze Cam

If you don’t want your Wyze Cam to detect sound, you can turn off this feature. By doing so, you won’t receive notifications for any sound events. Just follow these steps:

sound detection

  1. First, open the Wyze app on your iPhone or Android.
  2. Select the Wyze Cam you want to work with.
  3. Go to Settings.
  4. Now, tap on Alert Settings.
  5. To disable sound detection, just move the slider to the left. If the slider turns white, you’ve done it right.

But be careful when playing with these settings. If you disable both motion and sound detection, the footage from your Wyze Cam won’t be recorded to the cloud anymore and you won’t be able to watch it later.

How to Turn off Sound on Wyze Cam Live Stream

Technically, you can turn off the sound on your Wyze Cam live stream. While watching the live screen on the app, you’ll see a microphone button. Just tap on it and the sound will be disabled. However, the sound will still be recorded, you just won’t be able to hear it.

But there’s no way to disable sound for live streams unless you physically remove the microphone from the Wyze Cam. I don’t recommend doing this, though. It requires taking apart the camera, locating the microphone (it looks like a yellow ring), and taking it out.

You’ll need some tools, like pincers and a screwdriver. But be warned, doing this could damage the camera and void its warranty. So, if you fail, you’ll have to buy a new Wyze Cam.

In my opinion, it’s best to leave the Wyze Cam as it is. But if you really want to remove the microphone, I suggest searching for a video tutorial online. It’s hard to explain without visual guidance.

Turn Off the Sound

Many people want to disable the sound on their Wyze Cam because of privacy concerns. This is totally understandable, and it’s surprising that Wyze hasn’t addressed this yet. A simple sound off switch would be a great addition to their products.

For now, you can use these methods to partially disable sound on your Wyze Cam. If you have any additional comments or questions, feel free to share them in the comments section below.

My Thoughts on Disabling Sound on Wyze Cam

We could really use a “disable microphone” option on the app. Currently, you have to touch the microphone icon for a few seconds to turn off sound, but it could be more secure. Let me explain why. Imagine a scenario where a 6-year-old sister is holding the phone and talks to her 2-year-old sibling who is in the crib. This could wake the little one up. So, keeping the phone away from the 6-year-old isn’t a solution if you want to see the video and hear the sounds in that room.
