$300? You do realise for that you could buy a Dahua 2mp STAVIS professional camera IPC-HDW5231R-ZE (the replacement for the model number I listed above as it’s discontinued) + a cheaper NVR or licence for BI and an LED floodlight and still have money left over, as the camera is around $170.
The Netatmo looks posh, but you’re paying for it Also, you don’t need IR + a floodlight really. The real purpose of a floodlight as I see it is to up the light levels enough to allow you to force colour recording at night. The purpose of IR, is to give a night vision boost to B&W night vision.
Colour is better as identification is easier with colour, The only limitation is getting enough light to make colour viable in low light which is where the flood lighting comes in.
I would also think that $300 is probably well outside of WYZE’s business model of producing cheap affordable cameras. There are a lot of options / competition when you get to even 1/2 that, and it appears WYZE’s business strategy is probably to avoid that competition by selling a camera they can sell for the lowest price on the market to pick up people who either can’t afford or can’t justify spending even $100 on a CCTV camera. I think there might be a bit of wriggle room in their strategy, but I very much doubt it stretches over $50 or so. However, I don’t speak for nor know the company.
