Great value for Money - Easy Setup

…The camera comes with the ability to hook up a wired Ethernet solution to your router (included) or a WiFi connection using the simple instructions, your smartphone and a scan of the QR codes from your smartphone by the camera. I was able to set up the camera, wifi connection and link to my smartphone in short order.…The camera began to stream right away and has a two way audio capability - you can turn on the microphone built into the camera to receive sound from the camera location on to the app - you use the microphone of your smartphone to send audio back to the camera which plays it on a built in speaker.... The movements of the camera using the smartphone touch screen are a tad slow and have latency.…

Actually you can share your camera to other YCC365 Plus App account. So you all can have access to the camera.

What is the coverage area or range

My daughters use this to monitor their dog during the day. The camera can be swiveled (from a smartphone) around a room or two unless there are walls blocking the sight line.

I recommend this product 100 % Iuse as surveillance system, I loved it

Another great Wyze Cam!!

…Super easy to use from your smartphone or tablet.Highly recommended!

Ya gotta get one of these!

Will this work with a small Uniden moniter?

This transmits via WiFi to your smartphone or computer. I do not believe you can physically connect it to a monitor.

Could i use this to monitor my dog in a room 12' x 27'?

Theoretically, yes. I haven't been able to get mine to work yet on my smartphone.

Great Product

…We were amazed by the high quality of video that came through and LOVED the fact that you could watch through your smartphone.…

Easy setup, great feature-set, smartphone app is useful

For the price, I don't think you can beat this camera and its features. Its roughly the size of a soda can, but rectangular. The setup is super easy when using wifi and an iPhone. I had 2 up and running within 10 minutes including a firmware update. This is my first security-type camera, so take that into consideration.…

Wyze WiFi Cam

The idea that you can buy a wifi security camera with active motion detection & panning, zoom capability, night vision, an ability to rotate 360 degrees and integrate with Alexa and through your it’s own software on your smartphone.... for $37 is pretty amazing.…

Can you view live video on pc or Mac desktop?

There is a program that you can install on your Windows PC. I use bluestacks but there are others too. The program emulates an Android device (like a virtual smartphone without the phone). You can install the app to that virtual device and then see the video on your PC. Not easy but it can be done.

Is this camera good for watching my dog while I’m away from home?

I would say it all depends on if your dog wants to be watched or not. This camera is a great pan/tilt/zoom camera and has a pretty nice picture - all in a very low cost package. It's easy to use the Wyze app on your phone to look at the camera remotely. But, if your dog looks at you with a confused look on it's face when you ask who ate all the Twinkies, they might not be too keen on you putting a camera up to track them. If you do put the camera in place - which is really easy to do by following the instructions in the Wyze app on your iPhone or Android device - I would advise making sure that your dog doesn't find your old smartphone and set it up for themselves. Despite the lack of opposable thumbs, you and I both know that your dog is a smart little cookie and will try to thwart your efforts to keep them off the sofa and from eating all your Chips Ahoy. Follow the simple instructions to set up this low cost and easy to use camera, but be sure that your dog can't hijack it and point it at the ficus tree in the corner while they jump up and down on your loveseat and chow down on your leftover burrito. Don't be surprised if Rover gets a little testy once the camera is installed in less than 15 minutes and they realize that the gravy train is over.
