Wyze doorbell cameras comparison

The Sun is low in the south during the winter, so that big shadow tells you it is on the other side of the garage. So my pics are looking west, with south to left, and north to right. :slight_smile:

You are absolutely corrupt. I am dyslexic & often times use malapropisms. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Iโ€™m really disappointed with the WVDB. My camera is facing East and it blows out the background so bad that it makes the cam almost useless. The Nest Hello that I had previously had no problem handling the lighting.

Which version doorcambell is this?

I had an ARLO & sent it back. It had the same problem. I have yet to find a video DB that can compensate well for bright sun backlighting. It must be difficult to do. The Kangaroo is the only one I have found that actually has a software option to compensate exposure for backlighting. It has other limitations. At the same time if the DB faces south, as many do, it would seem the OEMs would have a solution. Otherwise, the effectiveness of discerning who is actually approaching your home is pretty limited. All faces look pretty dark with little detail.

Thatโ€™s the wide dynamic range thing that all the real camera buffs are always complaining is missing in these consumer grade cameras.

This is what I Came here for.

Ya, mine is on side of entry and faces west - very similar, after noon or so when sun comes around, the entire background is washed out with glare partially washing out the other side of the entry. At least a foot or so towards the front door is shaded enough, morning and later in the day its not bad. But my primary view is from a v2 in sidelight window on a shelf looking forward - it is south facing but well shaded.
