I just set up my new Wyze Home Monitoring kit, and I’m pretty happy with the system so far! One thing I didn’t expect was a vast improvement to the response time of my cameras for person detection. Before, there would sometimes be a 5 minute delay between walking in front of the camera and having it send me a notification, but now it’s less than 5 seconds!
I wonder, does the new base station perform the person detection processing locally instead of sending it out to the AWS servers? If so, that’s a huge selling point for HMS, and I’d be looking to buy a ton more cameras to put up around my house.
Thanks for your time, and great job on releasing another great product for a reasonable price, Wyze!
Wait… I wonder if they are making PD local with the base instead of servers… I don’t want the home monitoring system and I don’t actually think they are because they never said they were but if they are they better sell that base separately for those who don’t actually want the HMS service.
Might just be because the app cache got flushed while he was configuring the new gear…
I doubt the base is doing any analysis.
Were you able to get the system to turn on your cameras when you armed the system? I can’t seem to figure out if I can do this or if I have to turn on the cameras separately after arming the system…
Unfortunately there isn’t a rule trigger yet for HMS being armed, so best bet is to make a shortcut to turn on and then turn off the cameras in this situation.
