I’m a new user of Wyze .
I’m based in the U.K… I want to purchase cam plus for my cameras after 2 week free trial but when I go to purchase cam plus the options are Canada or America and purchase is in US $
So, is cam plus available in the U.K.?
If so, when purchasing, where do I access purchase of cam plus for U.K. use.
Think the product is great … v3 cameras remote access is fab …
If you paid the subscription and you were able to redeem the licenses in your account, you will be able to use it. The whole thing is badly designed. Not sure that you won’t have performance issues with it.
What that says to me is that if you live in the U.S., subscribe to CamPlus, you can access it from anywhere in the world. It DOESN’T say you can subscribe if you live elsewhere since it also states you need a U.S. billing address.
Not sure how a VPN solves the OP’s problem of not having a US billing address? Besides, with a VPN all access is non-local meaning that all live video, etc. is accessed via an internet connection that runs to the US and back to the UK which could be fraught with problems.
Still doesn’t solve the problem. OP is accessing cameras in the UK which involves a round trip to the US and back. Still doesn’t fix the billing address problem. By the way, I do understand how VPNs work.
I didn’t address the billing problem, only the technical aspect of the being geo-locked. That’s yet another issue for him to tackle. I’d assume having a credit card accepted in the US solves the billing problem.
Yes, even if the camera is in the UK, you can still view the feed from the US.
As for the double round trip, I can tell you that commercial VPN services are pretty fast. They use the service to watch movies.
And thinking about this more, there really is no double round trip. There’s one additional host. And like I said, the speeds are phenomenal.
And also remember, once the Wyze server has cleared the connection, it’s now peer-to-peer.
As noted by @Brlepage CamPlus is NOT geo-locked so that is not part of the problem. Also, peer-to-peer is affected by the VPN. The VPN makes the phone non-local to the camera so the internet connection would be used, not the local wifi.
I’m not trying to put words in your mouth. The original question from the OP was whether or not you can purchase a subscription in the UK. Access to the cameras and CamPlus was already functional via a Trial License without the need for a VPN.
