- Pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) lets you control the Cam Pan remotely using the Wyze app so you can see every angle of your room while youre away, on demand. Or, have Wyze Cam Pan monitor your room automatically with the Pan Scan feature by setting 4 predefined waypoints. Panning has a 360 left/right rotation range and tilting has a 93 vertical up/down range.
- Live Stream from Anywhere in 1080p - 1080p Full HD live streaming lets you see inside your home from anywhere in real time using your mobile device. While live streaming, use two-way audio to speak with your friends and family through the Wyze app.
- Motion/Sound Recording with Free Cloud Storage - The Cam Pan can automatically record a 12-second video clip when motion or sound is detected and saves that video to the cloud for 14-days, for free. Mobile push notifications can be enabled so youre only alerted when something is detected letting you stay on top of things without having to constantly monitor the app. Or, record continuously to a MicroSD card (sold separately) regardless of motion and sound. Compatible with 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB FAT32 MicroSD cards.
- See in the dark - Night vision lets you see up to 30 in absolute darkness using 6 infrared (IR) LEDs. Note: IR does not work through glass windows.
- Voice Controlled? You got it! - Works with Alexa and Google Assistant (US only) so you can use your voice to see whos at your front door, how your babys doing, or if your 3D printer has finished printing. Wyze Cam Pan is only compatible with the 2. 4GHz WiFi network (does not support 5GHz Wi-Fi) and Apple (iOS) and Android mobile devices.
- Share with those who care - One Cam can be shared with multiple family members so everyone can have access to its live stream and video recordings. Just have your family members download the Wyze app and invite them to your account. Camera sharing can also be easily removed.
It was effortless to set up this camera and the app works wonderfully. Night vision is excellent indoors (others have said it doesn't work well outdoors or through glass). The camera does not topple over even if not anchored, although to be sure, I slid some masking tape between the base and the rotating top to tape it down in case of earthquake. If you want to mount it you will need to buy a mount kit or a tripod.What I did not like about this camera is that there is no way to physically switch off the microphone or the speaker. This means you cannot use this camera in locations where you security is important... if a hacker should access your camera, they would be able to listen in. Furthermore, there have been reports of hackers breaking into all kinds of IP cameras and playing music or making noise. As my apartment has think walls, I cannot risk that someone would break into the camera and play obnoxious noises like airhorns or sirens, disturbing my neighbors.I taped up the back of the camera to try to block the speaker, but it only reduced the sound by about half. Since the speaker can be pretty loud, that is not good enough.A physical kill switch on for the mic and the speaker on the camera itself would solve that problem.
So far so good. And you can't beat the price. The picture quality is excellent. I also have an Arlo Cam Q, and the picture quality is inferior on the Arlo. My only complaint is the app is a bit confusing to operate, as the different options for the camera are not clearly explained. I also love that you can put your own micro SD card in it, and do continuous or motion/sound activated recording locally. Very few cameras have that, as they want you to pay for their cloud service.
I’ve been looking into the Wyze cam for about a year now. We finally decided to purchase to keep an eye on our most recent addition to the family (very old, sick dog). We are OBSESSED with these cams!! They are extremely affordable and have AMAZING clarity during night and day. Not to mention, they are real time! I love being able to speak and move the cam around to search for my fur-kids. Also, we really like that the cam pans with motion. I literally keep my phone open to the “Furby Cam” to keep an eye on our dog and cats during the day while I am away. I’m so glad that we didn’t waste our money on a RING. We love these cams so much and plan to purchase some more for outside of our house.
Frustrated with other expensive Doorbell and security cam systems, I needed a cheaper, temp solution quickly so I found Wyze on and bought a Wyze pan camera for 36ish bucks and a mini SD card based on reviews (and it's Alexa compatible) to TRY it and.... I LOVE it. Now it's NOT a doorbell but heck I don't answer my doorbell anyways (my giant mastiff alerts the entire neighborhood when some tries to get close to the front of the house and he looks mean)I just want to replay the coming and going activities as needed or watch live feed if I see fit so this Wyze device was perfect!!!It detects motion and/or sound and sends alerts, it motion tracks, motion tags, pan tracks, it offers continuous recording that can play back days of time in addition to sending you motion clips based on motion or person detection settings, you can watch the live feed with sound (what you hear is based on distance) AND it has two way selections to listen and talk through it decently, you can create shortcuts to do quick temp activities such as one click to pause notifications to override your schedule settings (exp: I stayed home sick and have it set to normally send alerts during work hours so I press my pause shortcut so my hub's doesn't get alerts while I move around the house AND without having to mess with my weekday settings), you can add multiple cameras easily, play back entire periods YOU select in time lapse speed, you can take pics of what you are seeing, take videos from live view or from the playback (use to black mail your kids when you catch them singing or picking a nose), the app is easy to use, you can buy inexpensive accessories to mount it on an outlet or mount it to a wall, even hang it upside down bcz you can flip the view, and the best.... NO PAID SUBSCRIPTION required. (Like ahem RING or Nest) and VERY REASONABLY PRICED (so everyone has access to personal securityI could probably gush more as I play with features, I know I'm forgetting something BUT I did buy a second camera and will probably keep adding to my system as needed.Hope this helped!
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Update review:_____________________Still getting great images. I don't record anything directly to the SD card and don't use the built-in motion detection etc. I use rtsp: to connect to my NAS and other security monitoring software on my PC, and use their settings.One very disturbing issue just 20 minutes ago: I use the YouTube app on my smart TV, and after watching an episode of Antiques Roadshow, instead of going to the next video, I had 5 minutes of what I assume is some Chinese woman and her cam feeds. Reference the video. Not a joke. This didn't come thru the app, but across my network to my TV. My TV isn't connected to my phone, so I can't see where changing the password would or could have any effect. It appears that they (whom ever "they" are) have access to my internal network. Not impressed at all. I'm going to change the sub net on the wireless router I use for these cams, change the password and see if it happens again. If it does, in the trash they go!Original review: ____________________These cams are a snap to setup. Install the app and follow really simple instructions. At one point it will have you will need to have the camera read a QR code on your phone. Don't forget to remove the protective plastic film that's over the lens. I have (2) Pan cams mounted outside with black silicone covers, and (3) V2 cams inside the house. All have been updated to "demo" firmware, that allows them to be accessed from my PC desktop, laptop, NAS etc. using rtsp:// protocol. Search "Wyze WiFi cam desktop viewing" to locate the "demo" firmware. There's a version for both V2 and Pan cams. Both work great. I don't use SD cards in any of them (except to upgrade the firmware). I use free software to connect to the cameras and record with no time limit. The motion detection is cool. If you enable it, it will follow a car going by, as the car moves, so the camera rotates to keep it in frame.The color reproduction in good light is excellent. To get the best resolution from your cam, after initial setup, go to the live stream view. You'll see an "SD" in a light blue outlined box just to the left of the words, "Live Stream". Select this, and you'll get a drop down list with: SD, 360P, and HD. SD is the default. Keep in mind that higher resolution will require more bandwidth on your WiFi, and affect how responsive the cam is from the app when viewing the live stream.I'v read many questions on here about whether or not the Wyze cameras are wireless. Some have answered erroneously that they aren't, that they need to be connected to power. Huh? They are wireless indeed. Wireless is how they communicate, but are powered by a USB cable connected to a power supply that plugs into the wall (both supplied). Think about what happens when your phone's battery runs out. You plug it into a charging cable. It still communicates wirelessly, but is plugged into the wall for power. It doesn't stop being wireless when you plug it in.Overall for the money, you really can't go wrong. My only uncertainty is how these "indoor" cams will work outside in weather. It can get to -20 here in the winter. Only the Pan cams are outside under the eaves. out of the lion's share of the weather. I wouldn't have tried putting them outside had I not read about others doing it with good results. Search YouTube as well. As I learn more, I'll update this review. Hope it's helped someone. :)
