Yeah this camera is pretty awesome. About a month and a half ago, I spent $200AUD on a Swann standalone outdoor wifi camera and have had nothing but problems with it. I ended up buying this (which got from North America to Australia in <5 days, btw... amazing), an outdoor cover and a 32GB sd card and this easily beats the Swann. I love this camera enough that I've ordered another one and I've recommended it to family and friends. While the Swann has "heat sensors" in it, this has people detection. It also has continuous recording (which my Swann doesn't). Being able to slide the timeline back and forth for hours at a time to see what happened, for example - 6 hours ago, is pretty awesome. It also has two-way audio. Someone can be knocking on my front door, and I can communicate with them through the Wyze cam using my phone. I also have the RTSP firmware flashed to allow me to view the feed on my PC, but unfortunately the devs are apparently not keeping that firmware up to date so any new flashy features don't work (like the aforementioned People Detection).

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.
