In an email today from WyzeCam I got to read about some new and exciting features. At the price point of a WyzeCam you do not really count on many features and certainly do not expect the quality and quantity of updates which have been available for the WyzeCam. This latest update which consists of an App update and a Firmware update adds:
- Motion/Sound Detection Sensitivity Selection (slider from 1-100)
- Motion Detection Zones
- Moving between alerts by swiping left and right
- Turning sound recording on/off
Motion Detection Zones and Motion/Sound Detection Sensitivity are both features that I am super excited about. When you really think about it how many times are you notified of something that you just do not care about, that having a zone window and sensitivity control would cure? It happens all the time and is the main reason why notification go ignored. Motion Zones are one of my favorite features of my Ring Floodlight Camera and Video Doorbell Pro, both of which cost hundreds of dollars. Too now have this feature in the WyzeCam is incredible. I hope that in the future we get the ability to create multiple motion zones.
