Apple buys Seattle-based Xnor.ai for reported $200 million
Could be the reason and maybe we’ll be getting some AI stuff on our iPhones eventually too.
I’d agree that was the reason When Wyze first announced it, I assumed Amazon/Ring was going to buy Xnor.ai because both companies were in Washington State. Will be interesting to see what Apple does with the tech/talent/patents.
The reason is more likely that Apple is getting into the home automation business enhancing the functionality of HomePod . They will be looking to buy an established security cam company… Apple Wyze Cam doesn’t sound too bad LOL.
Gross, first thing apple would do is make the housing aluminum and jack the price up to $200.
And make it only work with Apple products…
In my opinion that sounds horrific and would go against their mission statement of making quality smart home technology available to everyone, but that is just my opinion
wow, good job, I had a feeling that is exactly what happen when I heard the news that wyze not being supported by them anymore. I bet Apple wanted to buy up Wyze in the process and leave us out in the wind raising the cost of the wyze cameras.
Just read that Apple Inc bought out Xnor.ai for their ‘people detection’ technology. Apple only buys the best companies. Wyze was smart in using them also for their cameras. Now it all makes sense…
Hi, @gengel5. I moved your topic to this existing thread to continue the discussion here.
Apple can buy me out, I’m available, but at 82, who cares anymore…
don’t worry, someone will also buy “wyze” soon too…they seem to be falling apart anyway
Key point in that story might be Apple’s privacy mandate - keeping more processing local on the device rather than “leaking” it into the cloud.
Wyze Apple… better Ring… get it huh???
Exactly right! Real big on privacy factor, also big on cameras, both iPhone and iPads. Makes sense they outbid the others.
How so? They just got a big investment and are working on a slew of home products.
I love Wyze, but nothing would make me drop their products faster than if they were bought by Apple. Wyze’s ideology and Apple’s are very different. Wyze would change. No thank you.
