the “good” (?) news is so far landscape is the post with the most heart in the thread (excluding the opening message itself).

so hopefully…

I do also see some other people seems to complain about the lack of response on others items.

My question is simple… why is Wyze dragging their feet on this issue. There are many solutions available to them.

Here is your latest Wyze Official News on this topic:

I’m sure you have heard of the two distinguished gentlemen named “Bull” and “Pucky” ? I’m relatively certain that they sit on Wyzes developmental board of directors. And as members of this illustration board I am sure that they are quite vocal in their opinions

I gave up on this along time ago. When the outdoor cam dies I am considering Eufy.
I also have a wyze watch - another joke. I wont buy another product from Wyze.

Understood

I will say that I have some Eufy products as well, and I have been insanely frustrated at how insanely buggy and inconsistent they are with things not working right, nowhere near as open to feedback, way fewer fixes and updates (even for really critical issues), and more expensive. I was very quickly convinced I did not prefer Eufy over Wyze and it is not greener on the other side. But some people love them, and I love that they give Wyze a reason to continue to compete and keep prices lower (so I highly support some people continuing to support Eufy and keep up the competition).

I would just recommend not going all-in on Eufy until you’ve tried a few out and go into it slowly. I felt like I was paying a higher price for increased buggy devices, and not caring as much. Having said that, I really like that they have some 2K options, and I have a few of my Eufy cams backup my Wyze Cams in critical areas. I don’t hate them, and I would not be opposed to getting some more of their stuff in the future too, but they will absolutely never be my primary tech company. They have their uses, I am just suggesting that if you look into it like I did, I strongly recommend going into it slowly so there is reduced risk for extra frustration.

In my opinion, that is good advice for any IoT gear.

Agreed. I learned this the hard way over the years.

Luckily, some stuff has decent resale value if done quickly, but it’s definitely preferable not to have to deal with that headache, and few bother to do so. So much better to play it safe from the start.

I am running way behind in here, but I am still here and can say I have no new information. I do continue to nag, I will have to forward your photo on and ask them how you fix this issue lol

Hello Carver,
I replied to the Wyze Official News directly to Gwendolyn’s post.

I’m still not convinced that WYZE is making this issue a top priority, sadly:

Here it is folks. The 3.0 app AND landscape is etherware.
“we WERE”
“a while BACK”
“landscape …. CONSIDERED”
“REPRIORITIZED the app overhaul”

I read this as; the developer meeting table went round robin and out of the suggestions discussed a complete redesign was scrapped. Also, revenue is not what we thought so we laid off employees under COVID and we need a buyer for the company before we fold within the next 18 months.

I would totally attend a fix it Friday except it’s during a business work day. I have zero spare time between 6am and 9pm M-F.

They usually post the starts on a Friday, and harvest the votes on a Monday. I’ve suggested they take a full week and take the votes/open a new Fix it Friday on Monday at the same time, but that change hasn’t been made yet. In the meantime, you have at least a weekend, no problem. :slight_smile:

This is happening on tablet only. I’m using Samsung Tab S7+ on UI 4.0
V2 RTSP firmware fullscreen works.
V3 RTSP firmware fullscreen auto crashes back to home screen.

It only started a month ago. Note 10+ UI 4.0 goes fullscreen without issues. I did a reset on the tablet and still happening. Anyone know a fix?

Wouldn’t this be addressed by implementing the 90 ° image rotation that’s also on wishlist? I understand that is more for cams that have to be mounted onto their side for a vertical view, but seems like it would satisfy both needs. I can see some aspect ratio issues on some devices, but I think most people who need it would be willing to live with some less than perfect displays as the code is being tweaked. We certainly live with other flaws and it could be done in the beta channel where most users are inured to glitches.
