How big of a “super wide field of view” are we talking about ?!
Their will be a limitation to the FOV, having 2 cameras would be more ideal to be able to cover 2 areas at once.
This is how I use the cameras .
One is covering the entrance of my driveway
And the second v3 that’s being powered up by the back usb port is covering the area where I park my car
Reducing it to only 1 camera would not suffice . I need 2 separate cameras that cover 2 areas and also the v3’s allow for 24/7 recording with a micro sd card . Having only 1 camera with “ a super wide FOV” would be pointless bc you may still miss events
I’m just putting my input here bc I believe Wyze has the BEST floodlight camera on the market here and it’s a hidden gem!!
A 2600 lumen floodlight , v3 , and the back usb port to power an additional v3 for more coverage , and the v3’s allow you to record locally . All for $100 or $135 if you get the additional v3.
I bought the floodlight back in December of 2021 and the floodlight cameras is what originally got me into Wyze as I needed to replace my old dumb motion sensing floodlight that was giving out and wasn’t as bright and I was also getting into the camera thing and needed a floodlight camera combo to both replace my old floodlight and have cameras covering my driveway .
I have been disappointed in the floodlights performance since day one , the bug affecting the device when you opened the live view and the floodlights automatically turned on every time lastedfor around 4-5 months, the LED’s washing out faces and people , the pir sensors performance is dreadful , cars triggering on the floodlight even when set to turn on by pir sensor detection only, and so much more but I have stuck with it since day one bc I believe in Wyze and have expanded more into the ecosystem
But when I see the survey about offering a floodlight with no back usb port that concerned me
Yes I understand you all are just taking surveys and asking if users actually use the back usb port but to me that raises some flags and critiques .
As we all know more companies are going the minimalistic route and offering less and less for the same price as before .
The back usb port is very important to me and other users and I don’t wanna see future versions of the floodlight cameras be reduced to only 1 camera.
Maybe wyze could figure out how to add another stand for a 2nd v3 in leu of getting rid of the back usb port but it’s just my 2¢
Thanks for listening to us @WyzeHongfei
Have a good evening and Happy Thanksgiving
