$15 only. It is like a buy and throw away type of camera.

So cannot expect too much.

I just installed my Wyze Cam Pan camera this morning.

For those who are interested, here is a breakdown of my total damage bought from ezbuy.

Item(s) Subtotal S$59.34
Agent Fee S$5.07
Shipping Fee S$3.99
Agent Fee Discount S$-5.07
Order Subtotal S$63.33

Ordered on 27/Jun
Received on 19/Jul

There was some delay because of my fault in putting an incorrect price. Must pay for local delivery charge apart from the cost of camera. Also, there was a holiday on 4/Jul.

Camera setup was really so simple and quick. I think I setup less than 10 minutes.

You don't need to do any port forwarding or setup any DDNS like my previous Foscam cameras.

You don't even need to contact Dean in the middle of the night.

Setup with TinyCamMonitor is also very simple.

Motion sensitivity is much better than my previous Foscam. The camera can pan and tilt very fast.

Free 14 days cloud storage. Videos are stored safely in Amazon web server. A server which you can trust.

2 way audio is very clear.

The only thing I miss is the optical zoom.

I think pictures you can just review from online.

I don't want exposing my location.

The other thing, the night vision is not as powerful as my previous Foscam.

For $63 price tag, I don't expect much.

I have the Wyze cam pan as well.
It is good and cheap. They work with Google assistant - easy viewing on Chromecast and home hub.

They just introduced AI tech into the camera which would mean smarter detection - lesser notifications.

Think Xiaomi rip off their design legally since wyze needed funding previously.

Xiaomi is also selling a model like the Wyze Cam Pan model.

When it comes to software, firmware update and server, Amazon is a company you can trust.

You can see the Wyze forum is active with product discussion. Just like Foscam. That means you can expect good software update.

Privacy concerns? since backing up on Amazon also allows them to have options to view recordings?

Between Amazon and some other IP cameras which provide cloud storage, I think I trust the former more.

Anyway, you can choose not to save in the server.

Arlo Ultra 4K Wireless Cameras.

Who is the distributor here or the major retailers here? COURTS, HN, BEST etc? Where's the tech support and service centre?

Found that Netgear and HN are selling the Arlo 4K wireless cameras.

There's a Arlo Singapore but no contact number leh

OK, no 4K streaming via 4G LTE. You get 1080p over 4G LTE. It also doesn't store 4K clips in the cloud. 4K only via home WiFi network

I have no issues with eyes android app.
Don't need to reset my cams at all.

Infact I use Tinycam Monitor Pro. Perfect for remote live viewing.

But I have to say the C7838WIP is one of the best Cams around. C7824WIP is really a budget cam but it has good low lux sensor.

Hi there, like to know how u connect ur vstarcam to tinycam Pro, I seems not to be able to get it connected the username and password u use is the eye4 acct?

I'm using C7824WIP model.

Greatly appreciated!
