Wyze is coming out with a NAS like device to record all cameras to. It was teased earlier this week, but this is a better video of it. Still no official announcement from Wyze, but they have this booth set up at CES currently so it's not like they are trying to hide it. Originally I thought it only fit 2.5" drives, but it does fit full drives as well.

Wyze doesn't actually make any hardware, they buy it from a Chinese company and flash their custom firmware to use with their app. If you look at the Chinese product, it works out to be $57 after converting the money. If this was sold for $60 it would be an instant buy from me. I would like the ability to record all cameras to my home server, but I would be happy with this if it was plug-n-play.

Didn't officially announced if outside would be wireless or not. Just that it was coming this year

This was left in my house with 7 hardwired cameras outside. Dude spent quite a bit of time and money setting it all up. I'm annoyed to have to learn a new OS on top of Wyze now

Haha, same. I never did when we moved in. We even still have the same garage code that they left it on.

I never reset opener and reprogrammed the remotes so I suppose we are risking in that regard but we have replaced locks and reprogrammed the keypad.
