With news that the new Eufy cams will be $40 (and $50 for pan/tilt) and support HomeKit natively, I’m wondering what Wyze has on the software roadmap. The Eufy cams will support 2k video, which should provide better resolution. That, combined with HomeKit’s iCloud storage is very compelling at the price point.
It’s about $35 for a Wyzecam with an SD card, so the new Eufy is worth a look.
The community has been all but begging Wyze to focus on improving the app and the user experience instead of expending their hardware lineup. With the Lock software trouble the some (many?) folks are seeing, here’s to hoping Wyze doubles down on software and firmware improvements to stay competitive.
I was browsing YouTube about three weeks ago and came across a “I finally found my home security camera” … it may have been a Eufy - I’ll have to find it… it checked all his boxes for: inexpensive, local (no cloud or external server to reach out to) , easy to mount, local SD card, and maybe battery powered?
I think Wyze has been a wake up call to the industry. I am going to buy a Eufy to try, if it can function as local network only that would be a game changer for me. And the HomeKit support is great as well.
Have to wait and see, I am sure new things are coming from all the vendors. Iteration is the life blood of any product line.
We will open source software development kit (SDK) and the source code to the public through website and GITHUB . Developers can DIY their desired AI functions , such as catching your dog from stealing food on the table (as shown on above video), or identifying their own license plates and opening the garage door among other AI functions.
