I got one of these a few weeks ago for $35 at BHPhoto and have been very satisfied. Have not been prompted to sign up for a subscription, unlike Ring for example, and I still have every clip the camera has captured (about 9 days so far). All of my other smart devices are TP-Link, so it's all one app for me, and they basically play well with Alexa too.
FYI, you are in the 30 day free trial period. Towards the end of that trial, you will be promoted to select a Kasa Care plan, which is a per camera monthly plan. No option like Ring to cover multiple TP Link cameras. If you stick with the free plan, it provides only 12 hours (consecutive) of recording for the Spot cameras. This rendered it virtually useless for me, so I sent all 3 of mine back.

As for the camera itself, was very pleased with the quality for the price. But I'd rather pay a little more on the front end and not have to subscribe to overpriced plans to get the full benefit.

That's Wyze limitation with 5 minute only?

Can Wyze record on 64GB card?
I have 3 Wyze cameras.
Running 2 with 64G high endurance cards. Works great.
Running the last one with a 128G non-high endurance card. Also works great.

(The 128G is big enough, that it takes about 2 weeks to record across it one time. So by the time it actually gets about 100 writes on it, we are looking at about 4 years out. That is good enough for me)

Yes wyze limits the 12 second clips to every 5 minutes, there's no way around it as far as I know. To be clear it only records a clip when there's motion, and it won't record another clip until 5 minutes have passed (assuming there is still motion).

Wyze officially says the cams only support 32gb microSD, but many users report successfully using larger sizes. Myself I am using a 64gb SanDisk card with no problems, it is properly recognized and has been in the camera for a few months. I have it set to record events only, not 24\7.

If you want to record 24\7 it's best to get one of the 'endurance' branded cards, they are specifically made to withstand the constant writing of data. Normal cards aren't made to survive that type of usage.
i have cheap no name 128 gb cards in both of my Wyze and they work fine, no issues. yes over kill, but its what i had laying around

Rather than just copying it, here's what I wrote comparing Wyze, Kasa, and Arlo during the last Kasa sales.

https://slickdeals.net/f/13310827-tp-link-kasa-cam-1080p-wi-fi-network-camera-with-night-vision-60-more-free-s-h?p=129744664#post129744664

I'll say that I returned this model in favor of the KC-120 @ $50 for the longer recording storage mainly (2 days free). I enjoy having all my lights and cameras in one app; and it works well with Google displays

Exactly how and where are those clips captured w/o any subscription service ?

Terrible product. I'm glad I saw this:


"Only storage is through the Kasa app and a subscription service"

No local storage options.


WTF TP idiots?! We are going to buy your $20 can for $35 and pay $300 in the next few years for stupid 3td party cloud?

This is why no one likes you.

By the way Mr TPLink lead engineer, since I got your attention, we don't want 45 apps on our phones. Make your products ZWave friendly so we can use normal apps that use ZWave standard across every manufacturer.
What are you even ranting about. Lack of local storage is a negative but it's not unique to tp-link. There are much more expensive cameras out there that also require a monthly subscription. They make networking equipments and wifi connected devices,,, so no zwave

So no local RTSP access to these TP-Link cameras? Yeah, no thanks.

I read that Wyze cameras support RTSP, but it's somewhat of a newer feature. Can you actually buy a brand new Wyze camera and set it up without using any Wyze apps? Or do you still need the app to commission the camera onto the wifi network?

I'm tired of all these shit company putting out solutions in ways that tie their hardware to their ongoing server or apps. I just want a HTTP server on the camera for configuration, and then allow me to turn it off.

Can't comment on that, I only use the wyze app. It works well enough for my needs, and is leaps and bounds better than the YI app that I was using prior.

I had set it up using Wyze App and then uploaded the rtsp related files that wyze provides to SDcard and I then set it up to record in Blue Iris and everything works smooth till date and it's been couple months without any issues. There is an open source option that will over ride the firm ware I believe what Wyze has installed but I haven't played with it though

I own one of these and its great. Works wonderfully. And nice to see it next to my 20+ tp-link kasa bulbs, in the same app.

BUT I will not buy another one, as long as Wyze offers superior and free storage.
Do these go straight to ur phone or do u have to hook it all up etc ?? Im looking for security cams that i dont have to hardwire or do stuff too sense i stink at this stuff
