This is a Psychological analysis of why people use Cameras indoor in a rant. To be completely honest people you should not be using cameras to spy on your own children, husband, wife, even the dog (Maybe in a dog room) If you need a Support dog due to PTSD then Certify your dog to be with you even at work as a therapy dog if your dog means that much to you obviously your mental state can not make it through the day without your Service dog. My concerns are solely based on the safety and security of your children and how to keep people from entering your home and selling videos like voyeurism of your loved ones.
Concerns: Having cameras in your house shows a lack of trust of others, that lack of trust caries on to other arguments and gestapo type of leadership that rarely leads to a loving home. I have noticed some people invite hackers to look at their children in there homes by not securing there networks with complicate passwords instead they complain and blame the company for their ignorance. I for one personally believe that cameras should only be used to benefit the community outside your house, People trying to gain entry to your house or your neighbor house or proof to the insurance company the cars were broken into or a drunk driver side swiped everyones car when going down your street are great ways to use the camera, I have no problems to use the cameras for Bird watching and even hunters can use it to see what deers are coming around on their property, To extend on that though Coyotes and mountain lions or bears that are predators can be spotted with wyze cameras helping your family to stay safe and indoor until the threat leaves. What about the kids playing outside? That is a good question, I would assume many neighbors will have cameras in the future so if your child gets visited by a stranger everyone will have them on camera, but still hackers will always be able to access cameras somehow because somebody somewhere that do not read instruction and not change there router password from “PASSWORD” to a real difficult password. Once again Security starts with you, your sanity and how you perceive people around you and how they perceive you back is all on you so please becareful in turning the camera inside on your family.
Suggestions: I suggest buying the $20 Wyze sense kit that contains the Sensor, The sensor can notify you if your windows, doors are open or left open after a certain amount of time like if your toddler of 3 years old opens the door and runs outside obviously leaves the door open will notify you that your door is wide open. You can buy the Black ball sensors that will sense movement all around your house, stairs, kitchen, bathroom without compromising your family sense of trust. (Pretty much in a nutshell your home should not be a prison). just a few ideas that I have implemented in my house. My three camera location for my cameras are front door, Back sliding fenced yard, and Trash can area (Racoons or stray dogs love to tip over or people trying to get in my fence by jumping on my City trash can to get in my backyard or peeping toms).
About me: I have a four year degree at Miami Dade College in Criminal Justice, I have worked as a police officer and as a soldier in the U.S. Air Force, Worked for an electrician installing security cameras then Started my own security company 20 years ago installing security cameras, Home networks, Servers, Computer repair, (Anything to make money you know what I mean) Today I am a disabled Vet at home writing small programs, mostly Streaming and reading people’s comments, Commenting on Wyze for me is like helping people make sense of their ignorance by educating them and hopefully making them better aware of their surroundings.
Last but not least if your a single college student and your personal things goes missing like money in your room then yes I agree with putting up a camera to watch over your personal belongings, I remember my dorm days and people called it borrowing without returning. I never got my radio back, or USB back, or my recorder back, So if your a college student this is not for you this rant is about keeping pedophiles or people from recording your children and selling it out in the market as voyeur.
