Wyze Cam v4 Ideas

Well that is no doubt :slight_smile:. Not sure the SD cards can handle that amount of Read Write. Maybe that’s their plan after introducing the NAS.

lol the sd card specs are already picky without the high bandwidth reqs :joy:

4K is written to SD cards all the time.

Streaming 4K only needs 12 Mb/s.

I’m looking at cameras to cover my mum’s car which must sometimes be parked on the opposite side of the road and has been vandalised a few times. Due to the distance I want to cover, I’m thinking a 4K camera would be more likely to capture enough identifying detail than 1080p. I think 15 FPS would still be adequate though. Of course this would be more expensive but that doesn’t stop people buying the 1080p cameras if those are adequate for their needs.

First world problems. :slight_smile:

What the hell are you talking about? Having your wing mirrors smashed is a genuine and expensive issue. I live in the ******** a-hole of the UK. Most people buying Wyze cameras probably live in the first world.

Please create a 4k outdoor version using a sensor like Sony’s IMX274LQC cmos sensor or similar. A quick Google search shows they have been down to $1-5 a piece for a while now. SD card support would have to be larger as well. You make it, I’ll buy a bunch. Thanks.

Should have a 4K capability with Alexa , google home , HomeKit , and iftt comparability

I would like to have 4k and POE, I can pass on the micro-USB and wireless. It’s a lot more difficult to run 110/220 volt ac out to the cameras, but it’s much easier to run cat-5. Definitely support the higher capacity micro SD cards. I wouldn’t mind paying another $50~$75 more for the features.

Even with the 1080p Wyze cameras, the actual issue is the limited bit rate.

So I encourage you guys to vote on this Higher Bit Rate wishlist request:

https://forums.wyze.com/t/higher-bit-rate/6965

1080p normally needs a bit rate of about 4000 kb/s for good quality video resolution but i notice on the Wyze cam, its bit rate maxes out around 125 kb/s. So the video we get on the Wyze cam, as some of you already know, is very compressed compared to actual 1080p security videos. On the phone, you don’t really notice it because of the screen size. It’s more noticeable on an iPad or on your PC when you playback your Wyze video clips. So even if Wyze releases a 4K camera, this problem with limited bit rate will still greatly reduce resolution quality due to high compression.

Anybody interested should also vote on this wishlist request:

I would pay 2x or greater for a new cam with 2k resolution and slightly higher frame rate so faces wouldn’t become so distorted. Better resolution would help with the digital zoom. 4K would take too much bandwidth and is unnecessary.

4K! I can’t believe nobody has this. All the videos are somewhat low definition, especially when trying to get a car plate. 4K would be a great improvement and worth an increase in price.

Hi Wyze I would be very willing to pay more if you could integrate 4K video into your cameras

Right on. I think it’s about time that Wyze should roll out a 4k camera. It’s the mainstream now. They say 4K is a big breakthrough. It delivers a better-looking image, better color handling , saturation and whatnot. It got smoother edges and depth. So better video quality? As to 1080p, cropping or stabilizing the footage results in a scaled picture that is not as sharp as straight 1080p.

I got myself a Wyze Cam Pan last year. Can’t say I’m happy with everything. You just can’t zoom in the videos and get a car plate or read the words on the wall or something like that. Need new blood! Wyze

Would be nice if we can have an option to stream at 4k quality.

Wyze maybe you can make clearer video footage? Also it gets less clear as you zoom in. Please fix this!! Thanks

Under the 4k discussion, it would be cool if Wyze did something similar to what the Nest Cam IQ does “Supersight” where it has 4k sensor video rendering combined with HDR intelligence which increases quality when zooming (12x Zoom) but still uploads a 1080p as to not kill your internet or storage.
