Is this a business lobby? If so, I’d run Cat5e and use a POE camera. I say use a POE for a business since traffic and triggers will chew up the batteries in battery powered cams fairly quickly, even those with much bigger batteries than Wyze cams. I’d rather put the effort in up front for a biz rather than have to recharge cams.
Using a camera through glass depends also on reflections from behind as well, they work well if you can limit those, but I’ve found the trigger sensitivity to not be the same. For a home, I’d use an outside cam outside; at 8-9 feet you can catch faces just fine.
The v3 detects pixel change as motion, the WCO s use a PIR sensor as an initial detector for motion. Once either way detects motion they both then upload their events to the cloud where the AI does it’s analysis on the video and tags recognized objects.
I would say the “vs”'s is actually “pixel detection vs PIR detection” and not “ai vs PIR”. Ai comes into play when you have cam plus lite or cam plus on a supported camera. The detection systems are just the initial detection system, and the ai for recognized objects comes after for supported cameras.
They both have pixel detection systems that detect a change in pixels in view (and that pass the threshold of their different settings and sensitivitys)
