So I like the WyzeCam concept and I have invested enough that I am “in”, but I worry that there are some execution issues and a “too quick” to market approach.
First off, why in the world is a company Alpha testing when they already have a v1.0 on the market? Releasing a v2.0 shortly after said v1.0 is also suspicious. Was the v1.0 an attempt to generate hype and capitol when investors dried up? Like consumers would ever get a straight answer.
I wouldn’t raise this concern if not for some of the MAJOR glitches. I have 6 cameras, each with a 32GB SD card. Each is plugged into a Wemo Mini Smart Outlet. I access via one of two wi-fi networks and cellular. The first wi-fi network is the same that the cameras are on (as well as the Wemos). The second is at work. No matter the access method, the problem is the same. Streaming video is inconsistent, drops often and glitches with motion detection. That last point is worth explaining. I have noticed that if motion detection alerts are active, and you try to stream, the camera will freeze while the segment is being created/uploaded. Sometimes the camera will lose the connection and then I have to start over.
I am working through troubleshooting with WyzeLabs regarding the multitude of connection issues (which many of you may have the same woes as me), but the fact that once connected, the functionality is spotty and clunky only makes me think that the coding is subpar and someone hasn’t thought through real world usage very carefully.
Does anyone else have the lag/stop/drop issues with streaming from a camera. How have you fixed it? Have you fixed it? When does it happen for you?
