@alextsayun This is exactly like this Mi Camera. 😱
@alextsayun Pro dropshippers 😉
@alextsayun I believe the Xiaomi version only works in China.. This must have updated firmware to work in US. Would be great for makers to *drop* in and provide some clarity -
@alextsayun thank you for your comments. In creating the WyzeCam, we licensed the same industrial design as xiaofang, but we worked directly with the manufacturer to design a new version, the WyzeCam. So while the physical appearance is the same, we created our own Wyze app, firmware and AWS cloud service. We also provide US-Based Tech support to help our customers if they ran into any issues.
@conradd Nope, it works fine outside of China.

You can get the original Xiaomi for even better price.

Pros:

Concept

Cons:

Only the rebranded Xiaomi

Link to the Xiaomi?
Hi there - this is WyzeCam :) We did license the industrial design of Xiao Fang (which is the name of the camera you have in mind, sold on Xiaomi's website), but we designed the WyzeCam with a completely new solution from the ground up, including a new app (named Wyze, available in both iOS and Android), new firmware, and AWS cloud solution to store alert videos. Hope this helps. And btw, Xiao Fang does not work in the US.
Ripping off a Chinese product...what kind of parallel universe is this. It's clearly a rebranded Xiaomi security cam. https://xiaomi-mi.com/ip-cameras...

I know a security organization in Africa that would love this tech.
Hi, everyone! I work for Wyze Labs and I definitely understand the frustration about not being able to order WyzeCams outside of the United States yet. I'm sorry that we aren't set up for international shipping because we are so new but we definitely have plans to branch out in the future.

Really cool, almost too cool. Wonder if they also have access to our videos and privacy.... I mean for $20 there I am bit leery.
@androidlove You can hack the camera to turn off access to internet https://github.com/samtap/fang-h...
@androidlove we use end to end encryption for all videos transmitted to AWS cloud for security purposes. As the company, we do not have access to your videos in the cloud. Only the Wyze Account owner can view their own videos.
@androidlove That's a totally understandable concern! We absolutely do not have access to your videos and privacy. We firmly believe that your videos are for your own use and respect your privacy.
