Wyze (camera) rover

I would like to see a rover that could be controlled over the internet and mount a Wyze camera (preferably the Pan Cam). This would allow one to wander around the house to check things out.

Bonus points if it were built to traverse uneven surfaces (think using under the crawl space of a home to inspect things) and automatically dock for recharging.

I concur. I want to do that with my crawl space too ,& would love to go through my vents also

This would be cool, basically a remote control rc with a wyze mount :joy:

This is a great idea! It’ll sure give some competition to that Ring drone!
Don’t forget to vote fro the #wishlist item to support this idea!
@LonnieM, you can vote for your #wishlist item if you’d like to!:smiley:

Hello, LonnieM.
My nephew has done something similar with a rover and two cell phones. The cell phone carried by the rover could be replaced with a battery-powered Pan Cam.

Picture 1 was taken by me of the rover in the crawl space under the house.

Picture 2 is my picture of the rover inspecting the work of my niece plugging mouse and rat access openings into the house walls. The partial outline of the rover can be seen left of the center.

Saw the email about the sale on April 1 (which stated it was no April Fools). Has this wishlist been fulfilled?

Is this your answer?

(Could be a joke)

@LonnieM you might be interested:

I waited for the latest countdown to reach zero, went to buy and it was supposedly sold out. Either this isn’t actually available, or it is more popular than a mid to high end graphics card.

It’s available, but many people were interested. You can still win with this contest:

I would say its not the answer, because it doesn’t fulfill the criteria:

I would say we update this wishlist with what we want that wasn’t on the one time offered rc car…

Internet connection - ability to control via web, so i can be out of country and drive the car around via the app to see my whole place

Charging station - one that it can return to automatically if running low on power

Century mode - ability to go a pre planned route at specific time intervals and trigger alerts if anything looks different than before (would require radar, lidar, or sensor array needed as well as onboard memory)

Many of these are accomplished by the robot vacuum already so it doesn’t seem like it would be too difficult… not to mention they now have overwhelming market research showing how popular a car type product would be, whether they meant it to be a test product or not.

This can be done. The car can connect to your internet and controlled remotely. The car can also be connected directly to your phone and controlled that way in case you don’t have internet where you’re driving the car.

This is not true, it connects directly to the phone, it can not be controlled remotely.

From product page: Wifi Direct - Play Anywhere
Travel around anywhere inside or outside your home with no fear of losing signal. WiFi Direct connects Wyze Car directly to your phone so you’re not tethered to your home’s WiFi.

It does connect to your home’s WIFI it doesn’t seem to be mentioned there.

Did you beta test this? Do you actually have one? This was discussed a bunch yesterday and the consensus was that it could not be operated if you weren’t in range with you phone, I am now super curious if it can actually be controlled remotely over wifi - is there any way to get a confirmation on this? @WyzeGwendolyn

I am currently testing this and I can confirm that it does connect to your mobile device directly or your home network like a regular Wyze camera.
