If you use a surveillance camera at home, you have hundreds of hours of video per week. But if you need to get something out of it, you may be interested only in the parts with people. Wyze understands that.
To cope with constant live and video recordings, the company is introducing "People Recognition" for its low-cost cameras. When enabled, the Wyze app notifies the phone app when a human enters the frame of one of the cameras connected to your home network. Users can also browse recorded video, highlighting only those areas where a human being is located.
This type of detection is much harder to automate than you might think faces. Wyze's press release states that it has partnered with Seattle-based software company Xnor (pronounced Ecks-nor, not Znore) to carry out AI processing on Wyze Cam itself Reduce the number of false positives users experience received from Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan. The feature will be available as of today in a firmware update.
