Dome camera

#1

Is there any consideration for removing the physical tilt limit for when you want the Cam Pan to look all the way up but underneath itself when it is installed on the ceiling (upside down). I want to install this camera on my front porch so I can pan and tilt freely to look/check for whatever random location the delivery service placed a package. My preference is to install the camera upside down on the ceiling but that would mean if I want the camera to look all the way down underneath itself, the whole camera would need to be tilted in an awkward looking way, to achieve this. Perhaps on a v2 version of the CAM Pan or perhaps even the future CAM Pan outdoor could have a ball shape at its top instead of a flat surface to allow the camera to see all the way up (see all the way down when installed upside down). Any possibility for this hardware modification?

What you’re asking for is generally called a dome camera, so I’ve modified the title to reflect this.

Keep in mind that this would be a completely new hardware development for Wyze. There is an outdoor camera currently in development, but we don’t know yet what it will look like. If it turns out not to be a dome, then I wouldn’t get your hopes up for this happening very soon since there are other hardware projects already in the works. This may give you some insight into their plans:

In case you missed it, Wyze did a video Q&A session a while ago. Here’s a link to the video and a timestamp index of the content.
