Greater Control Over Detection Zone Shape

I’ve been looking at their job postings. it’s encouraging to see they are hiring to improve and innovate.

True — unfortunately — and it emphasizes my point. If the internal data share amongst staff does not function properly, this is what happens. It is a functional issue within the company and will not change unless addressed at the top to smooth the flow of information both directions in a timely fashion.

I tried using BlueStacks after reading your post, but I couldn’t get it to work. I’m on iOS. Installing BlueStacks was OK on my Win 10 desktop, but it would not accept my password to login (too long). I changed my password to accommodate the Android limitation (I was surprised it didn’t just pick up the account after I logged in.) but then it wanted me to pair each camera with it — that’s where I quit. I have cameras hundreds of miles apart and that just wasn’t realistic in my situation. Hopefully it will work for others.

Yes. The only square thing in a camera view is a vertical wall perpendicular to the camera. The perspective foreshortening in my camera means my square driveway is at an angle to the main road. In order to get my whole driveway I have to include part of the road, which means I constantly capture motion from the heavily travelled road.

In addition, being able to add a second polygon would enable me to include the garage door in one camera, instead of having to put two cameras in place.

Hummm, I don’t recall having any issues with passwords. After I installed BlueStacks, I got the Wyze app from the Google Play Store, and from that point on, it was the exact same process as the phone, except that now you’re operating in the emulator. I launched the Wyze App, and I was able to see my cameras, pulled up each camera and adjusted the DZ size. So you have different WiFi’s for different cameras, I’m not sure if that could be the problem in your case. My cameras are on the same network. Perhaps you could set up the app to use one network at a time, pull up the camera(s), do the adjustment, repeat the process for each WiFi. Don’t give up, this trick does work. Good luck, let me know if I can help further.

I think a very useful feature would be to allow the motion detection zone to be more freely adjusted. Currently it can only be a rectangle or square but it would be very useful to be able to make trapezoidal shapes in order to more effectively cover a certain space. As you can see in the picture below I can only select a small area without detecting the street or my neighbors driveway (neither of which I care to detect). Being able to select an area similar to the red outline would be much more useful.
