There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The reason why I am giving 4 stars rather than 5 is that the amount of markup. How the f*** a USD$20 dollar camera cost AUD$69? That's more than double the price and I am not convinced that shipping cost is the major factor here. Maritime shipping cost less than you think especially for a product that take so little space and weight so little.
If you can wait for 1 or 2 weeks to be delivered from Amazon US, order from there and save some dollars.
Price is up there comparatively to the US. Australia tax? Otherwise would be 5 stars.
It's cheap. The quality is great, comparable to my $200 Swann. The audio could be better. But overall, I love it. Would and have, buy again.
They work awesome and are clearer than my friends cameras.
the 15 sec cloud upload is not bad Being free however note it has a five min cool down for each camera. The person detection is useful however motion can be quite noisy albeit better than nothing.
I have mine pointed outside through windows
They come with a magnetic base so it’s easy to find spots for them. If you do this you can also rotate the image if they are upside down , but you’ll have to turn off the Infrared or it’ll reflect off the window . Some people put IR lights outside to work around this or motion sensor solar lights.
You can also daisy chain them so you can get by with one USB port
There’s also an option to flash them with firmware that supports RTSP but you will lose person detection
This is offset by the fact you can record locally to your own server for 24x7 recording and using the feature of your surveillance system - I use blue iris.
Additionally you can add SD cards to each device to record to that as well
Great all round entry camera and worth it just for basic surveillance
They aren’t weather proof
Top reviews from other countries
Now more than 2 years since the original review. Cams still work ok, software application although constantly updated is still often problematic and limited as far as reliability and motion detection go. Sound from the camera is not very good and often look as if it is muted. Picture is good for the price as well as field of view. The picture of the motion video is somewhat better than what I included here which is a compressed version of the original video. Still no Windows or Web support (Android and iOS native support). MicroSD recording is fine but playback is still a pain.
1) Free 12 seconds motion video to "Wyze" cloud with alerts (notifications). 5 minutes "cool down" period where no recording nor alert takes place.
2) Continuous or motion detection recording to microSD card. No alert nor notification when motion is detected.
3) Paid Monthly Subscription of full length motion detection to the cloud for 14 days (no "cooldown" period), with alerts (notifications).
No recording option to local NAS, SMB, FTP or other cloud services (Google, Dropbox, etc.)
Still a good value for the price.
Added a 12 seconds motion detection video and picture of the Wyze pan cam looking through window in sunny daytime.
UPDATE April 2019.
Added pictures of camera looking through window. One in cloudy day time and another one using night vision with IR led turned off. Note that I am using a separate stand alone IR led lamps outside so this is why the vision is still pretty clear.
UPDATE February 2019.
Good support provided by Wyze for these cameras and those puppies are still going strong despite the fact that both of my cams are being used to look through windows one inside the house the other one outside in my unheated shed.
Also, you can now turn on night vision while turning off the IR led which is very useful for a cam looking through a window. I can see clearly now...as long as I have enough ambient outside light. Which I do, most of the time. All of the below evaluation still valid.
UPDATE May 7, 2018.
I have seen very little updates/enhancements for the Ezviz mini o cam while Wyze Labs is constantly improving their software. Ezviz added motion detection area does not work as of this date. Also, I own 2 Ezviz mini o and only one got the latest firmware update.
The WyzeCam is still suffering from the short 12 seconds motion detection clip every 5 minutes which is the biggest drawback imo. It makes the cam unreliable as a security solution. Also, you can not bypass the cloud recording. If you turn it off and use only the micro sd card, you do not get any motion notifications. Even if cloud storage is free, I wish there was an option to turn off cloud recording and still receive notifications when motion is detected using the mSD card. It's impossible as of this date to record motion clips or pictures to neither a cloud service such as google drive, an ftp server, nas drive, or Windows share. The cam also lack a web interface for either viewing the live stream or changing settings.
The V1 cam records at only 10 fps which can make fast or close moving objects very choppy. The V2 version is somewhat better recording at 15 fps (please note that V1 is not sold anymore and what you will get as of this date is version 2).
However, they did improve the motion detection feature. You can now define a rectangular zone for the motion detection area. Also, both motion/sound detection sensitivity were changed from a Low/Medium/High setting to a 0 (low) - 100 (High) slider which much improves false alerts. You can also use the WyzeCam with the popular Android TinyCam software while I have yet to make the Ezviz work with it.
There were lots of connection issues that have now been fixed.
You can use the cam through a window by turning off the led lights to avoid reflection. However, this also turn off the night mode (black and white) which makes the view extremely dark unless you have good outdoor lights where you aim the cam.
Wyze also has a user forum (Wyzecam.com) where you can get help from other users should you run into problems with your cam(s).
WARNING: upgrading the cam firmware to v 184.108.40.206 could brick your cam. Do it at your own risk. Update May 2018: Wyze now has a procedure where you can fix your firmware cam should it get corrupted. See Wyzecam site.
If I compare the WyzeCam to the Ezviz mini (about the same specs but Ezviz is a little more expensive), I much prefer the Ezviz mainly because of better software and motion detection algorithm.
The picture quality and wide angle are better on the Wyzecam.
Ezviz will record at least 1 minute of footage (sure on sd card if you do not take the non free cloud server option) when motion is detected and there is about no gap between motion detection triggers. WyzeCam records to the cloud a 12 seconds footage, which is much to short, then is 5 minutes without capturing any other motion. This is totally useless as a security option. At least if you had the option of recording the motion notification trigger footage to the sd card, that would be a better option (if longer clips without gap are allowed).
The WyzeCam has only 3 motion sensitivity settings, high, medium and low. Way too many false alarms on medium and high (especially if you place the camera in front of a window to monitor outside) and almost none on the low setting. Ezviz has motion sensitivity settings that range from 0 to 6.
However, the WyzeCam allows you to share (export) the motion detection footage video to virtually any apps installed on your device (such as Google photo) which is much better than Ezviz Youtube and facebook only options. But again, you can only export the 12 seconds footage.
Both cams allow continuous or on motion event recording to the sd card. Wyze will even record sound, smoke and CO alarm events. It is not clear whether sensitivity will affect the recordings of the motion recordings.
Maybe Wyze will improve there software motion detection algorithm, but as it stands as of feb 24, 2018, I much prefer the Ezviz mini as a cam security option, mainly because of the longer, no gap, motion detection recordings and better sensitivity level. None of those two cams will email a picture of the triggered event, which would be a real bonus imo.
Hope this review was helpful.
The camera itself is really very very very small. I was very surprised at how small she is. The design is pretty enough, so it does not spoil the view. The sound has a decay of about 3-4 seconds with the video, but in reality, it is not a very big problem. As for the camera, she is great. The picture is actually in 1080p when you choose HD mode. As you can see in the picture, the visibility is perfect (the quality is deteriorating here, it's normal). The night mode is very very very well done. For a camera too expensive, she is great ... It's Wow. We can see very well. However, as soon as there is a little light, she has difficulty. (See the image in black and gray is the night vision) Let's talk about the microphone now. The feature of speaking is ... how to say ... to see again! We can talk, but a disastrous echo is made when we finish talking. It's as if the sound of the microphone and the phone interferes with each other. It's disgusting on that side. On the other hand, we hear quite well, but nothing more. One feature that I like is the microphone. Why? Simply because I like to scare my dogs. Yes I know, I am demonic. A small problem with this camera is the "Sensitivity of detection". Arkk ... I have to put it at 100 so that it does not send me 5 notifications per 10 minutes. But otherwise, disable it, it is useless internally. I also like the fact that we are 14 days of free cloud. It's really nice of them. You can also add a 32GB micro SD card (Recommended at 32 and under, because the camera is designed for the 32GB, but no more). When recording in SD (low quality (720p)), the micro SD will record for 7 consecutive days. In HD, the micro SD will record for 2 days in a row. Be aware that the camera is designed to crush old pictures depending on the mode or record you.
- Excellent value (really kind)
- Fast delivery (Via Intelcom in Quebec)
- Excellent customer service
- Well done application
- You can not see the camera on a computer (except using Android Emulator)
- The thread is quite short, so have to buy a longer one
- The microphone is missing sometimes
Overall rating: 4.8 / 5
This camera is perfect for those who have a baby or who want to watch their animals during the day and even talk to them (whatever they are going to be more afraid of than anything else). The infrared vision is excellent and the price-quality is perfect. I recommend it

Bon. Je vais écrire un très gros commentaire.
La caméra en tant que telle est vraiment très très très petite. J'ai été très surpris de voir à quelle point elle est petite. La design est assez jolie, ce qui fait qu'elle ne gâche pas la vue. Le son a un décallage d'environ 3-4 secondes avec la vidéo, mais en réalité, ce n'est pas un très grand problème. Quant à la caméra, elle, elle est géniale. L'image est réellement en 1080p quand vous choisissez HD mode. Comme vous pouvez le voir sur l'image, la visibilité est parfaite (la qualité se dégrade ici, c'est normal). Le mode nuit est très très très bien fait. Pour une caméra aussi peut chère, elle est géniale... C'est Wow. On voit très bien. Par contre, dès qu'il y a un peu de lumière près, elle a de la difficulté. (Voir l'image en noir et gris, c'est la vision nocture) Parlons du micro maintenant. La fonctionnalité de parler est... comment dire... à revoir ! On peut parler, mais un écho désastreux se fait quand on a fini de parler. C'est comme si le son du micro et du téléphone interfère entre eux. C'est dégueulasse de ce côté-là. Par contre, on entend assez bien, mais sans plus. Une fonctionnalité que j'aime bien, c'est le micro. Pourquoi? Tout simplement, car j'aime faire peur à mes chiens. Oui je sais, je suis démoniaque. Un petit soucis avec cette caméra, c'est la "Sensibilité de détection". Arkk... Je dois le mettre à 100 pour pas qu'il ne m'envoit 5 notifications par 10 minutes. Mais sinon, désactivez-la, elle s'avère inutile intérieurement. J'aime aussi le fait qu'on est 14 jours de cloud gratuit. C'est vraiment sympathique de leur part. On peut également ajouter une carte micro SD 32GB (Recommandé à 32 et moins, car la caméra est conçue pour le 32GB, mais pas plus). Lorsqu'on enregistre en SD (Faible qualité (720p)), la micro SD va enregistrer durant 7 jours consécutif. En HD, la micro SD va enregistrer durant 2 jours en consécutif. Sachez que la caméra est conçue pour écraser les vieilles images dépendamment du mode ou vous enregistrer.
- Excellent qualité-prix (Genre vraiment)
- Livraison rapide (Via Intelcom au Québec)
- Excellent service à la clientèle
- Application bien faite
- On ne peut pas voir la caméra sur un ordinateur (sauf à l'aide de Émulateur Android)
- Le fil est assez court, donc obligé d'en acheter un plus long
- Le micro fait défaut parfois
Note générale: 4.8/5
Cette caméra est parfaite pour ceux qui ont un bébé ou qui souhaite regarder leurs animaux durant la journée et même leurs parler (quoi qu'ils vont avoir plus peur qu'autre chose). La vision infrarouge est excellent et la qualité-prix est parfait. JE LA RECOMMANDE
