Why so many restrictions and obstacles w/o cam+ subscription

Could you please remove all the obstacle and hurdles a person has to navigate through if they choose not to subscribe to the cam plus service. I have sd cards in all my cameras which I thought would make them functional without the cam plus service. There are so many limitations restrictions that the camera funstionality is severley compromised. Had I know this was the siutuation (not advertised as such) I would have stayed with my Blink system. It would be great to get a reply as to why it seems Wyze goes way out of the way (in my opinion) to esentially force cam + in order to use the cameras. Right down to large banner promoting cam + on the web interface page.
Why cannot the recorded video/motion video be accessed online from the sd card?
Why is there a cool down period for motion even though everthing is being recorded and stored locally?
Why is there a max video length when being stored locally (battery cam pro)?
Now it seems it has been made more difficult to navigate the recorded motion events on the app. Is this true? If not please provide a fix for this issue.
Why does cam plus lite not work on the motion and battery cam plus?

This is almost criminal, at a minumum, highly misleading and unethical. One can only hope there is a class action lawsuit in the works

Why cannot the recorded video/motion video be accessed online from the sd card?
I can view my SD card recording away from home. You should, too.

Why is there a cool down period for motion even though everthing is being recorded and stored locally?
SD card recording has no cool down period.

Why is there a max video length when being stored locally (battery cam pro)?
I don’t have battery cam pro, but I guess this is to save battery?

Now it seems it has been made more difficult to navigate the recorded motion events on the app.
The only change I see is that the interface is new for the new cameras. For the old cameras, it seems the same.

Edit: The Wyze app user interface is very confusing but these issues usually appear here regularly.

They can. Use the View Playback button. uSD card recording is different on the battery powered cameras - see below.

There isn’t. uSD card recording can be continuous on almost all of the cameras - see below.

One of many limitations to preserve battery life. In my opinion, the battery powered cameras are so crippled in order to preserve battery life, to the point of making them almost useless (with or without CamPlus). You could not GIVE me any of the Wyze battery powered cameras. On the other hand, I have over 40 operational Wyze wired cameras.

i feel the same. They fail to inform what you really need or even what you get with their subscriptions. 3 levels of just the Cam Plus! Cam Plus, Cam Plus Oro and Cam Plus Lite!

I have spent hours and hours and hours trying to figure out what does what.

Probably the worst documentation next to a Chinese written for Americans one i have encountered.

The App programers obviously dont accually use the App and they obviously have not had to figure out what to buy using their Store!

I was fine before i purchased my Wyze Cam Pan v3 and then the Lamp Sockets thinking thats what i needed. What a useless combination of products i have now.

rant rave

Oh, i forgot about Wyze Plus Unlimited!
