Purchased the 3 camera pack during the Best Buy boxing day deals (free Echo show and something else I can't recall at the moment).

Been working great with no issues and surprisingly haven't had to replace batteries yet even though 2 of the cameras are in very high traffic areas.

I have the first generation and works well.

The battery is over a year of operation and still working.

Also wondering this - Wyze are supposed to be bringing out a proper outdoor cam, but maybe C-19 has pushed that back somewhat!

No TinyCam support unfortunately. Otherwise I would have replaced one of the Wyze that I set up outside

It seems a limiting factor for these is the 60s cloud whereas my Wyze cams have both intermittent cloud and are on continuous 3d HD loops using local storage which these lack. There's been times I've reviewed footage that was missed by cloud. Recently a neighbour caught someone breaking into his vehicle overnight using his Wyze, I noticed he just has it outside his upstairs window without outdoor housing.

I think these look better and don't require a power wire but I've been happy with my outdoor Wyze setups not needing to ever change a battery using a ladder to do so. I realize accessible power outlet is an issue for some. Also see my comment above.

After reading your story, I don't think It's worth to replace my wyze with this.

Are you going to buy the blink?

Can i add these cameras to Ring app?

I have a couple Ring devices already, and I don't want to run 4 or 5 different apps on my phone for home security / autmation.

How do you view recorded footage on the sd card for wyze? I don't think it's accessible from the wyze app (maybe I'm doing it wrong). I find the wyze cam recording kinda useless because it only record 11 seconds unless you subscribe to their cloud services.

Pro-tip: I discovered that you actually get more cloud storage space as you add more blink hubs to a single account. I could check history upto 3 weeks of history with 4 cameras with 2 blink hubs.

I dont think so. But can view them on Echo Show via Alexa or Blink app.

No, I have several Wzye cams and a Ring Pro. My first outdoor Wyze has been in use without issue over 1.5y

On my phone within the app I tap the camera I want to see, tap "View Playback" which accesses the microSD, the green bars are intervals of recording but I have it set to continuous so it's one long green bar. I move it to the approximate time and expand to the exact minutes I want to review. The 12s cloud clips I just use for notifications and if the camera is stolen or non-functional.

I'm upgrading from Wyze to Blink. The video quality on the Wyze has been awful for me :(
