Well we are another step closer to Alexa integration for our Wyze Cams as beta firmware was just released for the Wyze Cam V2 for which the change log mentions Alexa integration even though the Alexa Skill is not yet available. Unfortunately through this I learned the the Wyze Cam V1 will not be getting Alexa Integration due to a hardware limitation. That means only the Wyze Cam V2 and the Wyze Cam Pan will get Alexa Support. I know that not much can be done about this because it is a hardware limitation but it is still disappointing given that the Wyze Cam V1 is not that old of a device. People in the community were muttering about feeling slighted when the Wyze Cam V2 was announced less than a year after the original Wyze Cam release but personally I was okay with it until now. Now I feel slighted but I’m sure that will not stop me from upgrading my 5 existing Wyze Cam V1s to a mix of Wyze Cam Pans and Wyze Cam V2s.
Any Wyze Cam users have any thoughts on this? Let me know in the comments below.
