This is a rant. So deal with that.
So, I have a problem. One of my 6 cats has been pissing 1 foot away from the litter box…
Which one is doing it? You’d think a WYZE camera with an SD card should be able to tell you this pretty quickly. Wrong.
Motion events are only 12 seconds, and there are no motion events for the SD card.
The timeline does not show motion events on the timeline view, when you play back a recording, so you have no idea where to even being looking for an event. Why!?
Motion is all or nothing. You cannot motion search in a particular area - only the entire image, which has a lot of motion… Why!?
There is no web interface, only mobile app, WHY!?
Yes, you can save recordings to SD card only on motion, but who knows how that works – it might not capture the few seconds before, or after the event that I might need - so why would I use that? Ugh, why must I make such compromises with this trash product?
It’s as if WYZE had this great idea, let’s make a low cost product, and then never looked at any other competing products to see what features might actually be useful. Yes, it records, but that’s about all it does. Kind of useless.
I’m pretty much done ranting. I think I want to toss this thing in the trash - it can’t even help with the most basic question - what cat pissed on the floor. What’s the point when it takes more effort to review footage than it takes to write a rant like this?
