I just read an article about Amazon firing some employees for viewing customer’s videos without authorization. The article mentions that some staff are authorized and able to view customer’s private streams, but these employees apparently looked at videos or streams beyond what Amazon felt they needed to do their jobs. The fact that they are able to view them at all, and authorized to view even some of them, is troubling.
Does the Wyze system have any way that its employees can view the clips, streams, etc…whether authorized by the company or not?
On the flip side of the coin, I do see situations where Wyze employees accessing a customer’s video might be necessary in a case where a crime has been committed against the camera owner and they are no longer around to give the police or anyone else access to the videos that may lead to the arrest of the criminal. But this would require Wyze to have a way for its employees to access and view the videos, which could potentially be abused.
