repurposing old phones is fun, i have a few old ones i used as makeshift security cameras for a while…the only problem with that is the battery, do i let the battery run down and recharge or leave it plugged in and risk overheating…I was also thinking of something similar to this and thought about getting a cheap tablet so i have a bigger screen, but then i have the battery issue again.
next i considered getting a fire tv, since my fire stick will display the picture from my cam i believe this will as well (however i can not say for sure), main problem here is that it will only display one at a time…hopefully they will build some more functionality into this so we can customize number of cams and size/orientation - this one looked promising, and would give a 32" screen for 132 bucks:
to get around the one camera feed limitation i started looking at android tv options, this is an android box running 9.0, which you can use with any existing hdmi screen you have - main problem here is that i am not sure if the Wyze app would work on this platform:
here is a cheap 32" android tv for $128 - although there seems to be some issues with certain apps per the reviews, and again not sure if the Wyze app would download to this:
edit, found one more option, in the customer question and answer section of this android stick $48 someone states that Wyze can be side-loaded if you have the APK:
I have not found something that was a good enough option to pull the trigger yet, and will probably keep looking. Has anyone tried any of these options out yet? Or have any other ideas?
