I was happy to read your spotlight. Thank you for joining the Wyze team. We like that there is an entire team of employees dedicated to just security.

On a slightly related tangent, it is my understanding from other employees that Wyze would eventually (at some point in the future) love to create some limited access to a sort of public API as long as they can guarantee they can implement it with the appropriate security precautions. I know that probably hasn’t been a primary priority, but if you ever have the chance to help the team ensure the security part of that will be in good shape, many of us would be eternally grateful for any contribution you make in helping that eventually be possible. :slight_smile: Sorry, have to throw in my API endorsement since it’s somewhat relevant, as we’ve heard that ensuring solid security is a main concern with it taking so long. :slight_smile:

I’m sure Wyze keeps you busy with their insane growth in both users and products. Thanks for your efforts, & just know that you are appreciated even if sometimes it feels like nobody ever knows everything you’re doing for us on a daily basis.
