As much as I love Wyze, I think they have grown too much, too fast, and have way overextended themselves by trying to provide everything to everyone.
It seems like they used the cameras to build a name, and then started pumping out cheap Chinese crap one after another under the Wyze name to capitalize (literally) on the name/rep.
I like the cameras, and I don’t care about the security and that everything goes through China. I’m just annoyed that they keep splitting up features across lines and hobbling them so that Cam Plus is needed to fully utilize all of the features of the camera.
It’s clear that they are not taking customer issues into account with upgrades. The 90 degree issue has been in the Wishlist for years now. It’s a BASIC FEATURE and it honestly pisses me off to the point that I’m seriously thinking about just biting the bullet and going with more expensive name brands that have all this stuff already.
Seriously though. $55 for a camera, $50 for a good 256GB SD card, then $15/yr for Cam Plus. That’s $120 for a “cheap” Chinese camera with security issues that’s missing a lot of issues.
If I look at $150/camera there are quite a lot of options available, many with POE, MUCH better apps, NAS storage, etc
So… With Wyze’s focus clearly NOT on cameras, is it even worth it buying any more, or should I just move on to a company who isn’t trying to sell as much crap as fast as possible?
