You are using an OS that is 5 major releases old. Expect to lose support and capabilities for stuff.
I’d say the 5 days notice communicates something. How 'bout you?
That is kind of shockingly short notice then. The July timeframe was handled really slowly. Where did this sudden deadline come from then? Some new vulnerability, a log4j issue? We all knew the change was coming, and agreed no one should expect perennial support for old systems, but this is the first I’ve heard of this particular cutoff date.
Confidence, recklessness… or urgency?
I almost have to think / hope that if they were truly exposed they wouldn’t wait? Hmm. I will take them at their word that this is just a platform for future features.
Well, as cam-firmware-hesitant, if the bugginess of new releases doesn’t improve radically and instantly, it will be a deal-breaker for me.
I can’t/won’t be climbing/reflashing/repositioning cams. I shrink from that like a snail from salt.
Oh no way. (Better not be.) The poster’s warning says app, not firmware. I’m not planning on doing any ice climbing.
« As a result, we’re requiring that all Wyze Cam v2, v3, Pan, and Video Doorbell products be updated to the current firmware version. We recommend you update them yourself to control the timing. Otherwise, we will likely push updates to outdated devices beginning February 1 through February 15, 2022 . (Updates to Wyze Cam Outdoor are coming soon - stay tuned.) »
I thought of you when I read this.
You realize I’m much older than Customer… and feeble, too. What about me, wily canuck??
BTW… This latest iOS update did not require a re-authentication as it has in the past (at least it didn’t for me). That might be grounds enough to remove one special character when referring to the *&#%& iPhone
I know this one…
I literally laugh out loud every time I read it.
And don’t you go talking about how I have an iPhone @spamoni4 my 2 Android devices cancel out my 1 iOS devices.
You and I have the same setup: 2 Android Devices and 1 iPhone. I use the Android Devices primarily, only use the iPhone when I am validating something or testing things for a community member. But the moment it is done, it goes back in the drawer.
Me three. I can and have gone days without realizing my iPhone needs to be charged.
…We will likely push [firmware] updates to outdated devices beginning February 1 through February 15, 2022…
Given the past experiences that beta tests still have escaping bugs.
Wait for a world wide bricking when the firmware failed updating.
When Wyze is working well… I love it.
When Wyze failed, it is hell trying to fix.
i have asked for Wyze to provide a space on their website for an APK repository (a list of older versions )
vote to support it here
As far as I know, around here, I am the originator of the reference to the #$%^&* iPhone. I have a work issued @#$%^&* iPhone that I absolutely despise - but have to carry all the time. My personal phone is an Android and I have an Android tablet (although it is primarily used for flying my drone). I have the Wyze app on all three and although I primarily use the Android for Wyze, having Wyze on a second phone that I am carrying all the time comes in handy at times. It also allows me to beta test stuff on both platforms. There have also been a few times that the Android app hardly worked, and some times when the iOS app hardly worked so having the other platform was handy now and then.
