Person Detection makes Wyze Cam way more useful. It can filter out motion notifications for things you don’t care about, like swaying tree branches, insects, and headlights. You’ll get a specialized alert when your camera sees a person.

Rolling 14-day cloud storage for motion events

Wyze Cam already has the ability to record locally to a microSD card, but with Cam Plus Lite you’ll get 12-second videos recorded and saved in the cloud for 14 days. Clips are only recorded once every 5 minutes.

Rolling cloud storage and person detection are critical to a having a good experience with Wyze Cam, so we’re making payment optional. Both of these services require us to pay millions of dollars in monthly cloud costs. If you can help us cover the cost that would be AMAZING! Please chip in whatever you can to keep these features accessible to all Wyze users.

What if I’m already a Cam Plus Member?

Cam Plus members already make monthly contributions to Wyze. We love you and thank you for your support! You don’t need to do anything; we’re automatically putting Cam Plus Lite on all your cameras that don’t already have the full Cam Plus experience.

What cameras are currently compatible with Cam Plus Lite? 

Wyze Cam v1, v2 and v3, Wyze Cam Pan v1 and v2, and Wyze Cam Outdoor. We need a little more time to make Cam Plus Lite compatible with our video doorbells. 

What if I’m already on a Name Your Price plan?

If you already went through the Name Your Price process for person detection last year all your cameras will be automatically upgraded to Cam Plus Lite at your current contribution, including those who paid $0. 

But "Name Your Price" Person Detection wasn't on all my cameras.

With the original "Name Your Price" plan, only Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan v1 were eligible. Cam Plus Lite makes newer camera models eligible too, so if they weren't eligible for person detection before, they are now. You'll just need to tap the Person Detection toggle under Services in your Account tab. 

Do I have to opt in on every camera?

No, Cam Plus Lite is an account-level change. When you opt in to the service, all your cameras will be eligible for Cam Plus Lite. 

What is the suggested contribution price?

The suggested contribution price will change depending on the number of cameras you have. Contribute whatever you feel is best, but we'll suggest a little under $1 per camera.

Will future devices be able to opt into Cam Plus Lite? 

We’re going to evaluate the results of this experiment before making that decision.
