cbartley99. I don’t understand your point. I have one V3 installed about 10 months ago. I have a 64GB card in it currently and it records everything. I have only AI notifications turned on and all other motion events off because that was my choice. I don’t currently need alerts for anything other than people, vehicle or (pet) raccoon. If I turn on all other motion events I get an alert for “everything”. So what is your security cam definition or desire.
The point is that right up until the introduction of the home monitoring system, some people were routinely mocking those who complained about the cameras, replying that Wyze never claimed to be a security company and that the complaints were baseless.
Of course this promo’s timing immediately after a massive and sustained Wyze services outage (with a lack of timely e-mail notification) is also really unfortunate.
I understand your point. I just think of my camera as more of a surveillance cam. Since I only paid $34.99 for the V3 with one year of cam plus included 10 months ago I got what I paid for. If I was serious about security I would have spent the big $$$$$$ for something else. I personally don’t care what they call the cams.
I think the point made sense to those of us that have been around here for several years. There were thread discussions that bordered on full blown arguments when someone complained about their camera missing events or having other reliability problems. The basic theme was that when someone complained, there were those that would adamantly argue that these weren’t security cameras, Wyze never said they were, or allowed them to be called that, and anyone that used them as such was basically delusional.
So for those folks in those arguments back then, this is basically a type of vindication for them that a camera sold as detecting movement, etc, has the expectation that they can be used for security and should work when needed.
