Thanks #Solardave that can explain how it works a bit. I am concerned for how it will be able to use IR radiated heat detection in a Texas climate with the sun heating up the concrete underneath the camera. Lots of radiated heat coming from hot surfaces in the summer all the time (especially vehicles recently turned off sitting in the driveway) and if there are swaying tree shadows (for the pixel changes) within the cameras view at the same time, it will likely be detecting people/vehicles all day long. I hope it is using another layer of checking for another mysterious condition to help with a situation like that. Perhaps this is where XNOR’s AI solution helps for the recognition part. Thanks for the insight.
I am so happy that this feature is not just for newer camera hardware, I was not expecting that from Wyze but kudos to them for making it so. I thought they were going to do this part themselves but it looks like they may have quickly figured out how complicated it is and decided to partner with someone who already had the solution and could scale it for them efficiently. Win win for everyone but I hope it was not too expensive, I like Wyze’s prices!
