Please tell me they finally figured this out so they can sell a bazillion more cameras… These things are great for placing all around the house when we travel in the motorhome for months at a time, but they must be recorded 24x7 in my BlueIris setup. If they were smart or truly thinking, they would make a cam plus subscription mandatory for it to work… Last time I tested cam+ is was still part of the Not Ready for PrimeTime players group. -Bill

So to be more clear, while CamPlus is required for Web View, it was never needed for RTSP, and in any case Wyze completely discontinued and hid all RTSP builds for all cameras and has no intention of making the feature available again ever.
People have used one or more independent hacks to convert to RTSP streams though.
I understand its NOT required, but we want it supported on the camera out of the box they should just required a Cam+ subscription, or maybe a Cam-, a little cheaper for RTSP as you wouldn’t be using their bandwidth or disk-space. If they could make a profit from RTSP then maybe they would finally use their resources to do it right and implement it into their standard firmware. This hit or miss firmware kludge is not something they want to maintain as it does not add of their profitability. All businesses need to make a profit to keep supporting their products. -Bill
It is actually V2, V3 and the doorbell for me. Just randomly posted in the OG forum. I feel one of the reasons that Wyze removed RTSP to force users to the app. The business model does not work unless they can have reoccurring revenue. App = marketing and data collection. No RTSP = cam+ subscriptions.
If people start canceling subscriptions maybe they will listen.
I’m so tired of spending hours and hours of research and to get their cameras integrated into my smart home so that I can easily and conveniently view the cameras outside of the APP! I’m also so tired of this attitude of “for the price point and features” you can’t beat WYZE. This is not actually true. If you add in the CAM+ subscription then the total cost of ownership is actually more expensive. There is a lot of competition out there offering more for the same price or less. I WILL backup wh…
