It has been almost a year since I’ve posted on here, and it appears some basic functionality still hasn’t been added. They are working on some of it, but a year is a little long to still not have the following:
Alert > Timeline: After selecting an alert, it will just play 12 seconds from the cloud, which for me is useless, as I’d like to see the whole event which was recorded on the microSD card. I’d also like to see the alert automatically take me to the timeline to see the whole event. I’m glad to see they are working on this, but it shouldn’t have taken this long, in my opinion.
Download Event: There isn’t an option to download the full event, and also isn’t an option to choose a time range to download. It will download the 12 second clip, but not the full motion event, and also won’t allow a time based download, such as from 1:15 PM to 1:45 PM.
Mobile App Downloading (not streaming): My main reason for not using the app on my main phone is because it will keep downloading the 12 second clip, rather than stream it. I’d rather not have it download a clip that is useless to me, and would prefer to have it allow me to stream the full event (and download it, upon request).
I’m not an expert in design and development, but taking over a year to add the above functionality doesn’t sound reasonable to me. This is all something I’d expect to have been added within a few months.
With that said, it’s obvious Wyze has made many improvements, such as adding person detection. Also, there is a great community here with many knowledgeable people who have been able to provide critical feedback, including some relating to privacy and security, which Wyze has been willing to listen and respond to. This has all made me feel more comfortable using Wyze, and I’m looking forward to recommending Wyze to others in the future.
If you have any feedback or comments, feel free to share. I’d like to hear from those who agree, and disagree, with my opinions and observations.
