Maybe I’m just still peeved about the fallout between Wyze and their would be NAS partner, but why all the hype for Person Detection?
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a wonderful and welcomed feature. But it’s a security feature in a camera that’s, current;y, not meant for security.
Wyze camera’s in their current state are not security cameras.
Without NAS and/or 24/7 Cloud support, these camera’s are just cameras with smart features.
Now I get the reason why Wyze is taking so long with NAS support is that they would like to bring their own NAS to the market before making the cameras compatible with other NAS devices and that does make sense at a business level.
For one: Why bring a NAS device to the market when there’s tons of other NAS devices out in that market?
Two: The NAS market isn’t exactly growing nor is it big so why bother?
Three: I’m going to guess that most people who buy these cameras are people in the tech/gadget community who most likely already have a NAS device or would rather choose one with specific features that help them with all their tech needs?
Again, why bring harm to your already beloved products by sitting on this issue for the sake of bringing your own NAS to the market which is tiny. Why not focus on more smart home devices because that is a market that is growing and the market that Wyze should really set it’s sights on?
I would love to buy all-in on the Wyze cams. I really would. I’d have at least 8 of them with room for growth, but without NAS and/or 24/7 cloud support, I’ll have no other choice but to go elsewhere for security cameras like the Arlo/Eufy cameras.
I just feel like Wyze is doing more harm to their business than necessary for a product that hardly anyone will buy.
NAS support, at the very least, should be one of your top priorities right now.
