I responded to your other posts. Was actually on a little Vacation to Cape May NJ. and am now renovating my Garage where my Network will come into. Gutted the Garage and will have my painters come in and make is look good, then I will be putting in cabinets for my tools including a work bench for my Wyze testing and Car repair. Then I will do a new floor.
In the middle of all of this, I have been extremely busy at work with the end of FY coming. Then being part of the Wyze Discord and assisting in there as well.
Been Rather busy. Have you visited the Wyze Discord?
Well then I guess we’ll see. One thing is for sure - Thread has nothing to do with it. Thread uses ZigBee frequencies and handles the low power stuff. Anything video is going to have to go over Matter WiFi according to what I see.
Very little out there about cameras. This was updated this month:
My short response, bolded what I believe to be the biggest issue.
Nothing heavy duty for my IoT network. Do not have to constantly reboot devices since deploying this device in a 3 story large sq ft home plus outdoor living space, and I have Wyze devices in the triple digits.
All the network problems I had (which were pretty minimal, Robot vacuum loosing connection once a week and switches not wanting to connect) went away when I tossed the ISPs rented “junk” router and deployed this modest router
I expect five to seven years out of a router nowadays. And that’s with considerable overlap in technologies. Once we get considerable AI technology and development I can see that window shrinking considerably as well. Kind of similar to how phones nowadays are a 2 to 4-year cycle for upgrades even if you’re lenient and don’t want to stay in the exact cutting edge.
I have seen the rumors on devices but sadly they’re just rumors thus far. I want to say somebody posted something a couple months back but I don’t remember what it was. I can’t remember if it was a YouTube link or what. I wish I could remember what they called it.
Even as a maven I can honestly say that if there’s a router DVR or anything similar in the works I still haven’t gotten my hands on it. And I think there’s something (not sure on credibility there) leaked maybe it was an FCC link about something with a different frequency months ago. I have a horrible memory so did a quick search and I can’t find anything. But that’s all I remember. I’m thinking back now it might have been one of the newer cameras with 5 gigahertz capabilities.
If somebody knows something I don’t I’m all ears! Of course in this day and age with the abilities of Photoshop I’m rather skeptical of things. Lol
OP @tomac14 at wit’s end with a stand-alone $100+? willing to pay a PREMIUM for certainty
@tbagcam at $0 (+rental fee?) for an AT&T isp-supplied @customer banging his head against the wall (less) at a future $59 refurb stand-alone @R.Good at ~$70 for a stand-alone, IoT-dedicated @slabslayer at ~$45 for a stand-alone with extender ~$35 @Omgitstony at ~$125 for an access point (AP) tied to isp-router (+rental fee?)
at $170 (on sale costco) for a 3-node mesh (using only 2) @ssummerlin at ~$185 for a stand-alone IoT-dedicated @spamoni4 and @carverofchoice at ~$400+ for multi-node mesh @Bam at ~$500+ for a 3-node mesh
Did I miss anyone? This maven-level detail is exhausting.
