Its getting really annoying when these half baked people that have nothing better to do than hangout on a forum all day, try to use the “not intended for security” argument every time someone mentions that is what they wanted to do with the devices.
When you sell a product(s) like Wyze does, people are going to purchases them for the intent that a large majority of the similar products out there are sold to do. No everyone is going to pay $25 for a camera, and just watch their dog all day long. No people are going to use them to keep watch of their home, and in the event that something criminal happens, hope that the product they bought, that is a camera advertised that it works, that it will record 24/7 if there is an mSD Card, that will send a notification if it detects motion, will do just those things… While those things are “security” related, they are the basic functions the camera is advertise to do, but failed a majority of the time at doing so.
Same goes for the Sensors; its a contact and motion sensor. You expect that if the contact sensor is tripped that you will get notified, thus why people put them on the doors to ensure if the door is opened either while no one is home, or everyone is suppose to be sleeping, or if you’re teenager is trying to sneak out of the house… and yet the simple contact sensor FAILS to do that, especially when its being reported as “OFFLINE” all the time, even though its less than 2 feet from the Bridge. And people are putting up the motion sensors to trigger lights (possibly porch lights to warn off a possible intruder) yet the sensors fail to detect motion, and lights are not being triggered as they are expected to be (especially when they are Wyzes own branded bulbs)
So while Wyze may not advertise the products directly as “security” devices… They certainly do advertise the products to do things, and have the functions, that could be used in a manor to provide security, which they often fail to do.
Please come up with a better argument as to why these products are failing for so many people,… and for those that like to reply “they work perfectly fine for me, you must be doing something wrong” is even worse of an argument, because its entirely not possible just because you have no issues, then no one else should be, otherwise its the users fault, and can’t possibly be a faulty product, poor coding, and poor design (by the company Wyze rebranded their products)
