I have two dropcams and I wanted to add some more. I’m traveling through Africa for 2 months and want to be able to keep an eye on the house. Instead of adding another 2 dropcams I added 5 Wyze cams. I like disruptive tech and wanted to support the company. Additionally, I bought 5 more Wyze cams that should be there when I get home.
I tested the system for 2 weeks before I left and it worked great.
Now, for the last 10 days - well, I might as well not even have cameras. Sometimes they connect, sometimes they don’t. The one interior one just won’t connect at all now. The others will… sometimes… When they connect you can’t view past history (just freezes on last image).
I had someone go over to the house and manually restart all cameras, and my router auto restarts once daily.
Knew I was buying inexpensive hardware and no problem if one camera just fails - but to have all 5 not working… I now have no idea what is going on in my house - I’m half a world a way and all my property is at risk, simply because I jumped on the Wyze Cam hype.
Funny enough - my two Dropcams are still pinging me with alerts regularly. I dislike dropcam but sometimes I guess you get what you pay for. meh.
