What was abandoned? It has the same feature set a year later, probably more features actually. At an unbelievable price.
As to upgraded models appearing each year and support for legacy models phasing out - Apple, Samsung, Motorola all use that business model on devices costing hundreds or a thousand dollars more than the the Wyze Cam cost.
I think there is some confusion about the Fire stick and the Fire TV, which also connects via the HDMI port on the TV. I don’t think the Fire Stick is supported by the WYZE skill where the Fire TV does work. I have a 2nd gen Fire stick and I can’t get my WYZE cameras to work. Not a huge deal as I use my Fire Tablet 8hd in Show Mode and the WYZE cameras work great!
If someone has the Fire Stick working, can you provide step by step instructions?
The Wyze skill does not work on the Amazon Fire Stick TV.
I ordered one today, received it, set it up, updated the firmware, and enabled the Wyze skill on Alexa. I am able to discover the camera devices and initiate an “Show <camera name>” command but the Fire TV shows only “Waiting On Wyze Camera” before timing out and returning. Further research shows that if you go to the Wyze Skill on Alexa it says “Fire TV stick is not currently supported. It will be supported soon.”
I can only interact with the skill via the Alexa smart remote. The Echo I have doesn’t seem to know about Wyze Cameras.
Edit: I have linked the FireTV to my Echo and can initiate the “Waiting On Wyze Camera” by saying “Alexa Show <camera name>”. Very cool but still times out. Hopefully support will be coming soon.
I want the ability to just tell Alexa to start motion (and sound) alerts on a camera (and stop them).
My V2 is in the garage. I just leave it on 24/7. Walking into the garage (it hasn’t seen a car for 15 years) is an occasional check to see if everything is working as it should be (i.e., I should get a phone notification), which it always is.
My Pan is in my house. Motion (and sound) is always off, because I’m usually there. But when I go out I want to turn motion and sound sensing on, without picking up my phone. “Alexa turn on Pan motion sensing.”
Better yet, of course, is Alexa figures out I’ve left the house, and turns on motion/sound sensing automatically, because I set up a routine. But I’m patient …
I have been using Alexa Fire Stick for at least 6 months, and it has been a selling point for people I show it to. I did run into an issue a couple of weeks ago when a client purchased a Fire Stick, and it didn’t work. It turned out that they had all of their cameras set on HD. When we changed to SD, all of the cameras showed up on the TV, I have also found that looking at the Wyze cameras on an Android tablet is not straight forward. You need to have the newer version of the Android operating system for the App to work. It seems like we need a Tips & Tricks page that can point people in the right direction.
