[POLL] Stability and Innovation: The Proper Balance

Technology companies balance STABILITY and INNOVATION in the products and services they sell and support. Given that,

I think Wyze should emphasize Stability OVER Innovation:

  • 60/40
  • 70/30
  • 80/20
  • 90/10

If you want to promote this poll on the boards (to encourage participation) add a pertinent comment. This sets its status as “newly updated” and it jumps to the top of the list of topics.

Oddly, an actual vote in the poll has no effect in this respect. :man_shrugging:

Well, a full two years and still a pertinent question, I think.

Born out of this exchange:

Keep in mind, at that time Wyze had far fewer products (in public & early-access release.) If someone knows the exact number and what they were, chime in.

Now they have many many. Many. A lot.

So… they chose a path, not meekly, but balls-out.

And here we are. :tornado: :star_struck:

 

Clearly, something went horribly wrong somewhere.

Other than image you mean? :slight_smile:

Do you accept the rationale that they have been scrambling to stay alive?

Wyze’ 9/2021 post:

Some forum folk react:

If they’ve been struggling to stay alive it’s only because they can’t seem to make products that work correctly. Right now they have a giant mess with notifications, AI event tagging, CamPlus etc… are broken for several people, and that’s only the ones who have posted on this forum. I’m sure there are a bunch more that it’s happening to. It has been happening for well over one month with Wyze claiming several times “it’s fixed” when it hasn’t been fixed at all.

I was going to buy a Doorbell and couple of smart plugs but decided against it because why would I want to buy even more broken products from a company that can’t even make their main product (cameras) work properly?

If they’re struggling, this is why. Instead of trying to create a million products that don’t work, why not just focus on getting their primary product line to work?

Seriously, the broken notifications, AI, CamPlus right after I subscribed to it, going on over a month now without a solution has stopped me from buying more products I was going to buy from them. Whether they hear it directly from the customers or not, their crappy products are losing them customers and sales.
