The Luxriot Evo in a Nutshell

This software is for professional applications and requires a little bit of technical knowledge for the setup. But don't worry because it's not that complicated.

Be aware that at first, the Luxriot Evo was not designed to be used on a home or small business applications, but it can be used for that if you are willing to set it up.

==> If you are interested in learning more about the software, I recommend you read the article Free VMS software – Luxriot EVO.

In this article, I don't talk about the software installation,

Visit the Luxriot web site to download the software and install it by yourself.

Once you have the software installed, just continue with the Wyze Cam setup.

At first the Luxriot Evo does NOT work with the Wyze Cam.

Unfortunately, it doesn't communicate directly with the camera protocol.

You need to install the RTSP firmware and enabled this protocol on the camera.

==> Read the article How to install the RTSP firmware on the Wyze Cam to learn how to get this installation done (don't worry, it's very easy).

So, here's the step-by-step to record the Wyze camera on a PC

On the next windows, click the button "New Device".

It's not rocket science, as long as you have the patient to set up the software.

To add more than 9 cameras is necessary to buy a license, but I think it does NOT worth the price for such an application.

This software is very good and you can even stream the Wyze cam to YouTube.

Make sure the camera is not too far away from the router so it can have a strong Wi-Fi signal and a better operation.
