RickO your RightOn !!!
Although there are numerous possibilities to alleviate the pain the current single cam view, back and forth clinkiness imparts to all of us … I see at least 4 cam multiview being necessary.
Your logic in using 8 of course would be even better and the spec suggestions support the idea without creating new issues.
My DRONE Mobile iPhone controlled car starter provides live maps tracking of our 2018 Camry XSE without a hiccup and as you point out many other camera software options do MultiView very well.
I’m likely in the minority with WYZE as I am completely Smart Homed to the MAX.
One pole revealed a large percent of WYZE owners / users only have 2-3 cameras.
I operate 10 and three others from competing brands.
The issue of bandwidth as related to multiple IoT connected home automation products is managed by the latest Modem / Wireless Routers. If you wanna play in this new (Siri for me) voice command wireless world at home you need the right support tools to go along with your fancy toys.
New Home Pod, Latest Phillips Hue lights, Smart Thermo’s, Touch Free Door locks, and wireless surveillance cameras inside and outside including the chicken coup and dog house all need the hardware devises to accomodate their streaming demands.
The addition of multi-viewing of live cameras with WYZE will not impact a properly invested in and set up Future Home with wireless Smart integration.
