What made you choose Wyze Cam?

With so many different types of home cameras on the market, what made you choose Wyze Cam over the others?

 


#2

I read about their features on the Engadget and Cnet sites and then there is the $20 cost. After receiving my first batch, I was convinced


#3

Cost, versatility in mounting (although I was surprised when I got it to find it was not as stable as expected), 1080p (although I don’t feel that the nighvision or digital zoom measure up now that I have seen them), Cost, free cloud storage, the company story and their approach (although you can read my other thread about how I have soured on this point), and did I mention cost (I wanted substantial coverage and I couldn’t get it on a reasonable budget with many options).

20 bucks (plus another 10 for the SD card)

I had been wanting to try a petcam for a while, but not wanting to spend $200+ to find out if the dog sleeps on the chair or the sofa while I am gone.

I liked the features* Wyze offered at the price point, so I bought one.

I thought the camera was great from day one. I had found the forum, watched the YouTube videos, and really liked that it was a small company with a stated focus on customer support (and that appeared to be the case); so I ordered another camera about a week later. The second camera had issues, but the company took care of it in a satisfactory way, so I ordered a third camera the day after getting #2 replaced.

There is so little going on with my dogs when I’m not home (they sleep mostly-who knew? Everybody) and so little happening outside that I’m considering moving to a more threatening neighborhood. The dog park needs a clandestine security camera (& a wifi network? and a power source, solar/battery).

Now I’m thinking about what Spielbergian thing can I do with these cubes that I can’t do with my Cannon Coolpix, or Iphone 6. My best idea was to face 2 cams together with motion detection turned on, flip my finger between them and hope to start a pixel war (much like what happens when 2 mirrors face each other), but nada. What if I place 2 cubes facing in opposite direction between 2 mirrors facing each other. If you don’t hear from me again, it probably worked and I’ve fallen thru a rip in the fabric of time/space. Call my wife (I haven’t told her about what I’m doing)…

Saw it just after launching and placed an order to test it out. I liked the price point for the options available and had been underwhelmed by other cameras that near the price point of this camera. I was glad to place an order when they were still “pre-orders” originally and received it quickly because after that the publicity blew up and stock kept going out!
