Need more info on CMOS changes. Aren't these just rebadged with US firmware?
Did they update the OEM model of this camera?

v1 is a rebranded Xiaomi Xiaofang (or something like that). I found it all through reddit, most of the reviews seem favorable aside from China traffic (which the team said they are working on fixing). Cancelled my amazon order and bought the v2, for $26 it's a no brainer, worse case i'll use it for something stupid haha

v1 were just rebranded Xiaomis, not sure if there was a v2 that they rebadged or if they actually got their own CMOS setup now. In either case, these are still about the same price if not cheaper than Xiaomi, so updated CMOS for the same $ is always a plus. I found the v1 vs v2 (linked in the OP) and the results look much better

I have two of them and they are perfect for what we use them for. They are inexpensive but work great. We have them in our son's room and in our family room. It is nice because you can set time windows to send motion and/or sound notifications with a short playback sent to your phone. It is perfect to check on our kids during the night and make sure no one breaks in. I honestly couldn't be happier with our purchase. I am tempted to pick up some more.

would be nice if v2 was not hackable and unobtainable v1 becomes most valuable. i would sell my v1 at a premium and then buy v2.

Why would you want to pre-order this? This will be available on Amazon for the same price and easy return. They collect taxes.

We have the same setup. Works great for what it's for - general surveillance, but don't expect 4k quality resolution. Frankly what they advertise as 1080p looks more like 720p, that's why I said - general surveillance.

Is this the same cam as on the Amazon link below for 25.98 FSSS? If so, wouldn't it be better to buy from Amazon just incase you need to return? That way you get the $5.99 shipping when purchased directly from Wyze.
