I find it amusing that Wyze is waiting for a stable version of firmware to base RTSP off of. These products have been being sold and in production environments for nearly a year. I have to question the technical competency of a company that would place unstable firmware in production and not have it stable in that timeframe.
I continue to buy and use Wyze goodies because they are cheap, but I consider them my big boy toys. The fact that they now sell security monitoring services that are based in part on the use of v3 cams is, in my opinion, highly irresponsible and unprofessional. I was fine when they used the disclaimer that their products were not for true security use, but they have now crossed a line by selling a “professional” monitoring service but still claiming that their flagship camera device is operating on unstable firmware.
You can’t have it both ways. Either these are recreational toys and we need to lower our expectations, or they are production security devices that are stable and we can entrust our safety to them. If it is actually the later, then @WyzeGwendolyn should not justify delays in releasing a RTSP version based on unstable base firmware. Like I previously said, you can’t have it both ways. It is time for Wyze to grow up and act as a responsible corporation if they want to be in the security business. I don’t subscribe to their monitoring, but if I did, and god forbid some tragedy occurred, I know there are many really good lawyers that would love to exploit comments like “waiting for stable firmware” to justify the demand for huge settlements.
I still really like Wyze and their products, but I am very disappointed that they want to sell premium security services yet still make excuses for dev delays claiming stability issues in a nearly year old product. It is making the organization look foolish and incompetent. Time to step it up Wyze!
