I’ve got a couple of Wyze cams purchased back in 2019, when the “original flavor” free person detection was still part of the product. I never updated the firmware, which is still on v188.8.131.52.
The original person detection has continued to work for me since I bought the cameras. But I recently got the offer email for pay-what-you-want person detection. I’d like to support Wyze, but on the other hand, my cameras work fine as they are. A few questions:
Is there any reason to “upgrade” (or not to)? Is the new person detection better than the old? (The old-style must have been on-camera, and I think the new-style is cloud based maybe. Which seems like a disadvantage to me.)
Have any other important features or fixes gone into the firmware versions that I’ve ignored? I didn’t see anything too compelling in the release notes.
I suppose I could sign up for the pay-what-you-want subscription now, and then just stay on my old firmware until the verdict is in on the new-style person detection.
