"Yes, there are several features that would make these cameras more useful to some people. Wyze has added many such features, "
I’d be interested to see the list of “such features” added since 2018.
Admin vs User access wouldn’t be on a list of “such features” added.
PC /Windows (or Linux?) interfaces wouldn’t be on the list.
LAN storage instead of cloud storage wouldn’t be on it.
An actual “user’s manual” – a simple instruction book – wouldn’t be on it.
There are levels of difficulty to programming in adding new features. There are levels of utility to the users. There are levels of capacity to the hardware and levels of priority to the ISPs trying to route packets without bringing Federal Net Neutrality goons down on their heads. I get all that.
But the more patience I’ve invested in the Wyze cam environment, the more temptation I experience to just go buy an ugly green-camo trail/game camera from the WalMart clearance rack. THAT won’t do all the things my ideal cam-device does, either. But I wouldn’t feel like waiting another month would ever improve matters.
