I set up my bulbs flawlessly and they worked great with Google Home and Amazon Alexa. All of the sudden I can’t control them with either service, instead receiving “not responding”. When I reach out to Wyze support, I am told to unlink the Amazon skill, restart my phone, and relink. This wouldn’t be so sad except I am having the same problem with google. Then I’m told, “You'll need to contact google or alexa, the bulbs are functioning properly”. Pretty disappointed that all the effort is transferred to the customer. Don’t get me wrong the hardware is a hell of a deal, but If this is the level of support I’m going to receive, might as well stick with people who do it better, for a little more money.

Functionality with a rough UI
The app allows you to access all the advanced hardware features of their recent cams. On the other hand, event recording is slow to alert and time limited unless you buy monthly subscription. Playback is extremely hard to navigate and can only be watched at 1x speed, so you’re watching the recording in slow, real-time. The time lapse video takes minutes to download before viewing. My network has a strong, fast 2.4Ghz signal UI has features buried. You can’t rotate automatically through live camera feeds, can only be done manually, one camera at a time. App could be spiffed up but is generally OK. Hardware is pretty great for the money

Just ok but NO HomeKit = hard pass
This little camera and the software app is just ok for the price. I was ready to go all in and cover my place with this Wyze cam 2 pan but NO Apple HomeKit support on the horizon will leave me with just the one I bought for curiosity. None of there products are HomeKit comparable and the company clearing doesn’t care to make them so.This app gets a little glitchy sometimes when trying to press buttons or enter text. The pan cam is great but is a little noisy when panning. For now I leave it still and stationary. I’m looking for other home security and monitoring cameras but one main criteria is HomeKit support and integration.
