Option to mute camera sound / audio by default?

My only real frustration with the eufy app (on Android but assuming it’s the same on either) is that sound plays by default when I open a camera stream.

I’d really like to be able to have an option to mute by default. I am just trying to check on what’s going on in my kittens room or out front of my house, not listen in.

At the very least, remembering my last option/state would be good.

100% necessary - I want to be able to check my cameras while at work without the recording audio blasting every time I open a camera feed. Please Eufy !

If you tap the audio button when viewing the live view, it will remain muted if you watch again later.

That isn’t accurate. I’ve been trying that for over a year. The mute state does not persist.

It depends on the camera. The doorbell has a silent mode. The floodlight and Cam 2 do not. When I click the audio button on the doorbell it comes up and says silent mode which stays on when I go out of the feed. When I do the same action with the other cameras it the sound always plays after I come back into the feed.

Yes, 100% agree and it should be the default also, sound should be opt in in the video feed.

That is unfortunately not true - at least for the Android version of the software. It would be perfect if it did.

I totally agree!

I have a few EufyCams (2K indoor) and WyzeCams (v2 and v3) - I am unable to prevent the Eufy app from hijacking the audio every time I want to just view the camera (also checking on my kitten). It kills whatever current audio stream I have.

The WyzeCam/App does not do this. Please Eufy, fix this so that the settings stick. Even disabling the microphone in the settings (not just muting on the screen) of the camera doesn’t work. This is the main reason that I won’t be getting any more EufyCams until this is fixed.
