Pan Cam Instant Panorama

Concept:

A function within the Wyze API that triggers an instant panorama creation using the PTZ cameras.

Use case:

When opening the Wyze app and browsing to any PTZ camera, you are given the option to take a panorama photo. Once triggered the camera would take a photo of its surroundings and stitch it into one high quality panorama. Once complete the user is notified and presented with a fully stitched panorama image of the Wyzecam PTZ viewpoint.

Options:

  • Expose an IFTTT function for generating panoramas. For example: If motion is detected wait X seconds and trigger a panorama.
  • Add panorama to the options of patrolling. Take a panorama every X minutes.
  • Time laps panorama animations. Take a panorama every minute for 24 hours (user configurable and limited by the speed in which the camera can cycle through the PTZ sequence for a panorama). Upon completion the user is presented with a panoramic time lapse movie.
