I have a wyze cam outside, like I’m sure many of us here do. Person detection for me currently has almost no false positives anymore (shadows, etc., don’t trigger it as much as before). But when it’s dark (especially because of this time of year), many person events go undetected. So this is just a reminder to focus on submitting nighttime person events to Wyze for AI improvement. I think this is even more important to do because of the outdoor cam coming soon. So every day now I’m going through and submitting the ones where it made a mistake, but especially at night, since I really want to be able to find out if, say, someone broke into my car while I was sleeping.
It also currently has trouble detecting people further away.
Remember, it’s important to make sure they have a balanced dataset for training, like day/night, people in shorts / people in winter coats, besides people in more unusual positions, such as on a bike, in a wheelchair, etc, so don’t forget to keep submitting those videos.
I would love it if I could also help train the AI for vehicle, pet detection, etc., but I don’t know how I could do this currently.
TL;DR: Those of us with cameras outside need to keep submitting videos to Wyze to improve person detection, especially in unique situations, because the outdoor camera is coming out and the current algorithms are probably optimized for indoor use.
