How to Use the Wishlist

Hey, folks!

You all have amazing ideas about what we can do with our products moving forward. And we want to hear them! That’s why we have the Wyze Product Wishlist. Here’s how it works:

Posting

If you have an idea that you want to see, please do a search both in Roadmap and in Wishlist (Search Wishlist and Search Roadmap) to see if that’s already being discussed. If there isn’t a topic dedicated to it here yet, please make a post! Posts should be about individual requests instead of grouping them together. If you have multiple requests, please make multiple posts. That way people will be able to join the conversation and add likes to your post if they agree with your idea. However, if your topic is already in discussion, a mod will steer you toward the older topic and close the new one. We want to keep things tidy in here so that it’s easier for the Wyze team to see and consider your requests. :slight_smile:

If the mod that is processing your submission needs further clarification, you will receive a Personal Message (PM) from the mod. We will keep the submission open for five days while awaiting your reply. After that time, the mod may close the request and you would need to resubmit.

Voting

We want to see how many people support each feature and what kind of impact it would have. Please vote for posts that you want to see implemented. If you want to add use cases or otherwise discuss the feature, please do that, too! We’d love to see likes on the use cases and ideas for when we start investigating how we want to implement the ideas.

Check the Status

We plan to update the status with locked tags so that you know where your request is in the pipeline. The tags we’ll be using are:

  • researching - We’re looking into this and trying to select a good method for implementation but we’re not at a point of working on it yet.
  • maybe-later - This isn’t on our internal roadmap at this point but we’ve seen and considered it. Sometimes features that we plan to implement later but haven’t come up in the pipeline are in this category.
  • probably-not - We’ve read and considered this but for one reason or another this is pretty unlikely to happen. We’ll generally try to make a post about why it’s in this category. Posts here aren’t going to the tag to die. Sometimes we may make a change (like new hardware) that will open up more possibilities so we’ll keep an eye on it.

Additionally, we’re now adding tags for product, app, or integration to make it easier for our team members to see requests directly related to their work.

Commenting

We love to hear use cases and comments are welcome. But instead of writing, “+1” or, “Me, too!” please vote. This will help keep the threads easier to read and make sure that your vote is actually counted.

Moving to the Roadmap

Once a request moves to the in-development stage, it will be relocated into the #roadmap. Requests that are not yet in development will stay in the Wishlist.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Best,

WyzeGwendolyn

Great idea and implementation. What do you think about splitting the topic into 2 flows? One is for items that can be implemented though firmware updates to existing cameras (i.e ones that readers have already purchased) and the other for items that will need improvements to the design of the cameras (i.e ones requiring the purchase of “new” cameras). Since your firmware is not open source it is very difficult for a user to see what could be accomplished with a “simple” firmware/app upgrade compared to what requires a design change - obviously the request for the ‘color’ black is hardware but many other items requested are not obviously hardware vs software.

We could probably use a couple of tags to group posts this way within #roadmap but it would take some effort to get tags assigned. @WyzeGwendolyn, your thoughts?

Yes a point, but does this tagging not being done anyway otherwise how would the request to directed to the correct solution provider (or potential solution provider) within Wyze?

Sorry, I am totally not getting your reply. Could you try to restate it?

Update: post are now being tagged as researching, maybe-later, in-development, launched or testing to give users an idea of the status.

We are also considering splitting this category into Roadmap and Wish List, with the former being features that are planned and the latter being feature requests that are not yet in the definite plans. If you have thoughts on this, please post below.

This might be the better idea , Maybe a little less confusing , And seems like it would be less work than Getting things tagged

I like that. Would also like to see some or more feedback from Wyze on the feasibility of a Roadmap item. “Maybe Later” really doesn’t tell us anything. For example: More flexible detection zones. Is that even possible with the current hardware? You’re asking us to vote, but at some point, say at 50 or 100 votes, don’t we deserve a little more feedback from Wyze? Managing expectations is important.

A post was merged into an existing topic: Email notification with attached snapshots taken on motion detection

I would highly support this. it would be very clear cut for ideas vs support

Hi, my six Wyze Cams are arriving today, so I’m getting all signed up and into the community. I’m very excited.

I am also a software product manager and I love this approach to your roadmap visibility and capturing/displaying votes back on the main menu of features. Would you mind letting me know if the forum code is homegrown, or are you using a SaaS vendor? :wink: Thanks.

Welcome to our community!

We’re happy to hear that you’re enjoying our Roadmap. As for your question, I wasn’t involved with the forum design so I don’t have that answer for you. Sorry about that!

Thanks for the response–is it something overly difficult to find out?

Yup! We’re using Discourse for this forum though the vote aspect is an available option but we modified some sections with a custom build. :slight_smile:

Can you give us some color on the criteria Wyze uses to determine if/when things move from no comment to maybe-later to researching, etc…

Looking at the items in-development, It seems customer feedback and their votes play a smaller role than I initially thought.

Sure thing!

  • launched - Has already been sent out to the public.
  • testing - Usually means that it’s in beta testing though recently we used this for alpha features.
  • in-development - Means that we’re actively working on it but we’re not ready for external testing.
  • researching - We’re looking into this and trying to select a good method for implementation but we’re not at a point of working on it yet.
  • maybe-later - This isn’t on our internal roadmap at this point but we’ve seen and considered it. Sometimes features that we plan to implement later but haven’t come up in the pipeline are in this category.

As for the in-development items, many of these had more votes with previous voting methods. But while there is a strong correlation between requests and features we work on, it’s not a perfect one. This is impacted by our ability to deliver the feature, if we found a method to implement it during the research stage, if something paves the way for a future feature, company goals, and what our resources are. Many of the features that we’re currently working on entered the pipeline before the Roadmap launched.
