However, Wyze has an interesting proposal that they announced in their forums, in which users can actually choose how much to pay, even if it is $0. The company says that this started out as an experiment last year and discovered that most users were pretty honest and paid for the feature in full, even though they had the option of paying less or nothing at all.
So much so that the company decided to open up this feature to all of its users. “We’re introducing Cam Plus Lite, giving Wyze Person Detection and 12-second cloud recordings to all users at whatever price you want to pay for it, including $0. We’re also adding several requested features for local recording on microSD cards, including removing the 32GB card size limit and adding skip forward and rewind buttons.”
This means that if you own a Wyze camera and would like access to its more advanced features that were previously locked behind a paywall, you’re welcome to subscribe for any price you think is fair. It’s an interesting experiment but we wonder whether in the long-term, whether it will end up being profitable for the company.
However, in the meantime if you’d like to take advantage of this offering, now’s a good time to do so.
