I think a few of us (ejhartman, corey, tylersucks, wilkins, me) have some sort of setup. I bought the $20 Wyze came when it came out like 6 months ago. It's a generic cheap Chinese camera, but Wyze build an app around it and added some nice features. They came out with v2 and I got one of those last week.

I have one inside and one outside by the front door. They are more toys than real security measures. Wyze is mostly local storage, but does do 14 second cloud saving when motion/sound is detected. People online love the app TinyCam Pro, and I got them working with that last night, but I'm not sure I see the benefit of it other than TinyCam shows a live feed of multiple cameras at once, the Wyze app only does 1 feed at a time when you click into the camera.

Corey, do you leave your outside lights on at night? I replaced my 3 outdoor bulbs with 75w equivalent LED bulbs over the weekend.

Lights off. IR on

Unfortunately the IR auto mode doesn't go to off when the lights are on outside. It may be from the sensor being covered or it looks past the overhead lights into the darkest and determines IR needs to be on.

I leave our lights off outside. If the garage door is open or one of the other exterior doors open, the appropriate lights come on if it is after sunset (and turn off after a set amount of time).

Wow...house of the future. So basically when you open a door to let Kirby out it turns on and then off X minutes after being closed? Almost like a motion light....

What are you using the v1 for?

Mainly home security out front window.

I've use it for hyperlapse and watching out dogs while gone too

And she's a little girl who sings songs that's on the Ellen show a lot. Her family has a youtube channel as well- Claire and the Crosby's. Dave Crosby is one of the owners of Wyze

Shoes out of the garage? Why not tools or something worth more? Does he leave the garage door open a lot?
