Who here would like to see a Wyze Drone? I’ve been looking into drones for myself and my business and I keep thinking, I wish Wyze had a drone. I think I would definitely buy it if it had all the right specs.

@holocron you must have beat me to the submission by about a half hour, lol, nicely done!!! Like your idea of an outdoor version as well…or maybe some kind of “drone door”, similar to a puppy door, to let it outside.
… Hopefully, the functionality will be triggered by person / motion detection, with manual control options. The base could be the charger where the drone will return if low on battery. Would be a great additional to the WYZE family.
Thanks for the update. Believe me when I say that there are a lot of us out here who would love to see you guys bring and affordable autonomous drone security platform to market. Hope to hear good news about drones in the near future.
I have several products: 5 cams, 2bands, and 1 scale.
I use the cams for home security, and they work great.
Im working on a home security enhancement using a pair of quadcopters which rest on inductance pad chargers to keep them fully powered, and which will fly a programmed flight path (using Python) to perform a security patrol. The patrol is triggered by motion detection from a camera some distance from the house.
The quadcopters are essentially toys without robust cameras. Would Wyze consider further developing security qyadcopters with high resolution cameras capable of detailed image capture of faces or auto license plates for better identification as a security device?
The flying cameras are a better solution than stationary cameras: i know someone who had a boat and trailer stolen from their property one night by thieves who spotted the cameras during the day, who then returned with laser pointers to disable the cameras to perform the theft. Much harder to disable a moving (flying) camera.

Create a drone with security camera, microphone, and LED spotlight. The drone comes with a waterproof outside docking station where it can charge and be ready for it’s next scheduled patrol (as long as the wind speeds are within range). It links with the homes security system to help provide 24x7 advanced home protection. Ideally it would be able to be armed when the alarm system is active (and it would then follow its configured schedule and flight plan).
The user could configure the drone to follow an intruder, use the spotlight if necessary, but focus on getting details that can help the police say. Fire alerting could be added (perhaps “packages” are sold for each type of added alerting beyond intruder alerts. For example, pet monitoring, package delivery, etc). Lot’s of possibilities when you have neighbors with the same system - they then integrate and help each other monitor and follow an intruder.
Also, the drone learns the environment, so you can ask “Alexa, tell drone to investigate the backyard and send video”. Or such like.
Cheap, but effective drones are easily available, but it would be cool if the camera was Wyze. The base station would handle the tough stuff regarding software, and would provide the drone with just the information it needs to do it’s job. That really should be too tough. Of course the base station would need a lot of thought if it goes outdoors (I was thinking if you placed a roof about 4ft up from the station, that would give the drone clearance, and maintain a degree of dryness). It would need to alert the user if it crashes, etc. 4k camera with some zoom capability.
