I’ve read dozens of posts on this community forum trying to figure out what Wyze camera is best for my use. I’m impressed and grateful to all of the authors, but I am confused. Perhaps if I explain my needs, I can get some clear and simple advice.
We have a remote cabin. No Wi Fi signal except via our ATT cell phone hot spot, which has about 1/2 strength cell signal. Our closest neighbor was burglarized and we want to install a system that will 1) capture and record the culprits’ faces, 2) notify us when a break-in occurs, and 3) provide us with remote real-time viewing.
As an added bonus, it would be a pleasure to be able to tell the robbers to “get the !@#% out of my house” via two-way voice communication.
I’ve read we need to be aware of our hot spot gigabyte usage (we have 30gb limit monthly). But unless / until the cameras are activated by motion or “called up” on the Wyze app, they are not using hot spot gigabytes, are they?
We’d like to have one camera concealed outside on the porch and one camera concealed inside. Wyze outdoor cam is not an option because we don’t have a router, correct? Can Wyze v3 operate without being connected to a router? Does v3 require a base station? Am I missing any other limitations/requirements? Your advice is appreciated. Thank you.
