@SpeedingCheetah I posted the following in another forum thread a few minutes ago. I did this test a couple weeks ago. I haven’t analyzed the data itself, just logged the connections so far. I’m running the latest firmware, so, any claims by WYZE that it isn’t doing this anymore are false.
I ran my camera on a separate wireless network which is connected through a PC with two NICs and logged the connections from the camera for a short period of time. The following are all the servers that it connected to.

I’m running the latest firmware which is 188.8.131.52. The camera is a WYZE Cam v2.
Someone from WYZE, please explain what these servers are. In particular, I would like to know what the Chinese server is being used for, but, also the other non-Amazon servers. What are ports 10001 and 10240 used for?
Note, the Android app connects to the same Chinese server that the camera does.
