Ratings and Reviews
Much better than its price suggests
If you’re on the fence about Wyze, trust me when I say it’s worth it! It works well enough with Alexa, though not great. Still, it's fantastic with IFTTT! The quality and auto-night vision are also better than you’d expect.
I can only give the app 4 stars because, while it is good for watching a live stream, it’s missing a few features. You can change the quality from 720p to 360p but even the lowest setting the video is still very watchable if you don’t need to zoom in too much. There are several automations to play with; more than enough for any smart homes. The camera load time is adequate at 3-4 seconds, just a tad bit slower than my Nest (which is a lot more expensive).
All this being said, watching a playback of previously recorded video is so difficult to use. The way you have to FF and RW is not even close to being helpful in finding a certain event. It would be great if the developers added a “Skip 15 seconds” feature or whatever period of time. It would make life so much easier than trying to use only the little slider in the current app.
So close, but not yet worth the hassle
The picture is crystal clear, and the features that it’s SUPPOSED to come with sound amazing. Eventually, it could be a great product! However, there is a laundry list of flaws, and the forums will attest to that. For me personally, the flaws I encountered were: dropped streams CONSTANTLY (reliable WiFi, promise), screen timeout after 10 mins on google home or a few hours on iPhone (take note those wanting constant streaming like for baby monitor or constant security monitoring- there is no way to lengthen the time the screen is active, I confirmed this with their own tech support), camera would move randomly for no apparent reason, motion detection alerts never- not once- actually alerted anyone (2 people on account, one google pixel 3 and one iPhone XS MAX) even though I confirmed several times with several people that all push and notifications were active both within the wise app and on the phones themselves, and customer service seems either burnt out or just not all there. When I asked about the 10 minute screen timeout time on the google hub they said I could simply ask google to bring up the camera every 10 mins for hours on end..... um..... what? How is that even a logical response?
TL;DR wyze has great potential. Too many kinks to work out for now.
Amazing - motion
I rarely write reviews - this product deserve a score of 20/10 score . Just incredible for the price and how well it works . Just a couple things that bother me , wish there was an external antenna or really just anything that would increase the connectivity . Biggest step for improvement would be add a grid to the motion detection zone selection as my camera is facing my street oddly and in order to have it go off for my driveway I need to have it in the street and this goes off for every car , if I could be able to individual select each grid box and mold the zone to the geography of my perimeter then that would be amazing. Maybe a louder speaker for the voice and or an alarm tone that can be activated . Would love a Mac version or just app form for the Mac as I my phone and computer are my only devices and I need to use my phone to call etc whilst my computer could stream . other then that I can’t complain for the cost and I will definitely be purchasing more . Definitely needs an alarm option to be played aloud . Also I don’t know why when it records in 1080p to the sd card there are glitches and motion blur like it’s recording locally why should there by a lag in FPS ?
