Wyze 'really inexpensive' webcams

Recommended Posts


super cheap kinda worries me on something if it were critical for security. However I did alright almost 3 years on a dlink PTZ camera for $109. Used it as an outdoor camera not rated but was covered. Likely would have lasted even longer but i left it unplugged for a little too long and never rebooted correctly.

Same as Xiaomi, can be flashed with a firmware that disables the Chinese spyware/cloud, adds RTSP, ONVIF, MQTT control/events etc.

Last time I tried the motorized 1080p version, the stream was really stable only up to 720p. It's fun toy to play with though. I'm planning to use it to monitor/record my bengal cats' shenanigans.

Also be aware there are multiple generations of these cameras, each using different SoC and different firmware. So there are multiple CFW projects.
