I don’t work for Wyze and I agree with Kal. Your comments and post don’t make a whole lot of sense.
There are only 2 types of contact sensor (door/window) and motion detector. Wired, and Wireless.
Only security companies will do wired sensors. I don’t think I know of any “do it yourself” wired security sensor package. These sensors typically run a wire to a big box that has a battery and gets it’s power from an outlet. So, in essence, these are “powered” sensors.
Within the “wireless” group, sensors are powered using batteries. There’s no getting around that. You may find a motion detector that can get direct power somehow, but that’s about it. All contact (door/window) sensors will use batteries if they are wireless. Within that sub group, there are about 3 types of wireless sensors that I can think of at the moment. Z-wave, Wifi and “wireless” running at 345Mhz or another ‘closed’ frequency. “Wireless” sensors tend to get the most battery life (3-5 years), especially when/if there’s no interference. Next Z-wave (1-5 years, depending on the sensor) and finally, Wifi (6m - 1y).
If you don’t want a “monitorED” system, then you’re basically looking for a Do It Yourself security system. There are a few of them out there which allow you to buy your own equipment and then “monitor” the home yourself, but again, they are all based on wireless sensors, so you’re always going to have to deal with that aspect.
From what I’d most to least recommend (based on what you seem to want) is Ring, you buy the sensors and hub and can monitor everything yourself. The package gets really cheap now and again. Before Wyze introduced their system I was dead set on getting Ring. Abode is also pretty good, you buy the sensors and hub and can monitor everything yourself. It’s more expensive but I think also a bit more advanced and more for people who are serious about their self monitoring. After this, anything you find is going to be charging you a fee, either for remote or app compatibility. I subscribed to Simplisafe for 3 years and it was really good but I got tired of paying the ~24 a month and going down to ~15 meant losing app access. You can use it without paying at all, but would be limited to using the keypad. You also can’t program your sensors at all if there’s a problem. These were the longest lasting wireless sensors I’ve ever used as I never had to change batteries in the 5 years I had the system installed.
It’s not really about buying cheapest or most expensive. Sometimes thes cheaper things work just as well as the expensive ones for people’s needs. Example, Kals’ case and also mine. As I mentioned, I live in a great neighborhood in a city with the lowest crime rate in the U.S. I also live between 2 police officer’s familys (that’s big deterrent in and of itself). I don’t think I need a system that I’m going to pay $60/mo or more for to monitor my home. I am/was a camera junky (I have 5 cameras in the front of my home, 2 on each side and 3 in the back and even more inside my home) which were mostly collected/purchased before I purchased my home here 4 years ago. I was going to get Ring because I wanted to have a security system installed…it’s coming to the end of this pandemic and me and my family are preparing to get back out there, travel, etc. and while security cameras have the home covered inside and out, I wanted something that is a bit more pro-active in case I’m not paying attention to my phone. Let’s say we’re at Disney or the movies and my phone is silenced or put away and something happens - THIS is when I need help and coverage but it’s so rare that I would feel like an idiot paying even 20/mo for it. That’s where Ring’s pricing attracted me. Then Wyze announced a solution and I figured, even if the worst case scenario is that it doesn’t work for me. I’m getting a year of Cam Plus as a part of the package so, why not?
Now, If I lived in an area prone to break ins, that doesn’t mean I’d pay ADT or Comcast or any of those big companies either. They are still using what I call their monopoly model. They have a tech come in and set everything up and you pay all this money and it still doesn’t work any better than Ring or Simplisafe anyway. Show me a system you consider “high end” or “super reliable” and I will easily be able to point you to forum(s) with customers who will disagree.
As Kal mentioned, Noonlight doesn’t have access to your cameras as far as I know. The feature turns your cameras on automatically (if they are off) and have them start to record when the alarm system is triggered afaik, I could be wrong on the details.
Good Luck in finding a system that works for you though.
