If you've got a few dollars burning a hole in your pocket and have always wanted an HD, night vision, motion detecting, time-lapse, continuous recording video camera with two-way audio, well, here you go. Wyze's affordable cameras have pretty much the same features as their more expensive counterparts. They even come with 14-days of free cloud storage and a slot for local recording on a microSD card, which is handy if you don't want to save things to the cloud where they might be less secure. Baby cam, pet cam, security cam, surveillance cam, game cam, cam cam--these cheap cams can be whatever cam you want. Going all Big Brother has never been cheaper.
Wat kan er gebeuren als er iets misgaat?
The biggest worry we have about Wyze’s affordable security cams is the huge data leak they suffered back in December, 2019 that exposed the personal information of 2.4 million customers when they left a database unprotected for 22 days. That is not good, not good at all. Fortunately, Wyze jumped on fixing their epic goof, which is what you want to see when something like this happens. And as far as we can tell, Wyze hasn’t had any major security vulnerabilities or data leaks since then.
All in all, these cameras seem ok for your indoor and outdoor spying needs. What’s the worst that could happen? Well, we suppose you could share your videos to the Cloud, rather than keeping them stored locally where they tend to be safer. Some major state sponsored cyber attack could happen and that state, say, Russia for example, could learn who you and your neighbors vote for and then target you with ads to try and change your vote. That would not be cool. Also, probably not likely. Still, not cool. Store those videos locally people!
