After reviewing the Wyze Cam V2 and ditching my Nest Cams, I start growing my inventory of Wyze Cams. I decided to try out their PTZ camera the Wyze Cam Pan. With Pan, Tilt & Zoon features I think it can replace multiple v2's. Let's review it and see what this Nest fanboy thinks of the Wyze Cam Pan...
PROs - dirt cheap, 12-second FREE clip recordings stored in the cloud, 24/7 local recording with soon Max Drive, IFTTT support, Time-lapse recording, motion tagging highlights motion, works with Alexa devices with screens, PTZ controls, motion tracking, pan scan feature, two-way voice (not push-to-talk)
CONs - only 15fps, hard to find footage, Wyze recommends SD cards under 32GB (It still works with bigger SD cards, but they don't suggest anything larger than 32GB), only works on 2.4GHz wifi networks, 5 minute cooldown periods between notification (limiting the number of free stored clips. Just make sure you install an SD card and all your footage is recorded 24/7 to the card.) Until the WyzeDrive comes out there is no way to backup footage, motion tracking loses subject often, motors are loud,
