Updating. App was crashing but after a couple of days they rolled out an update and fixed that. Overall, the app is functional. It's not user friendly, it's not pretty, but it works. It's very difficult to set up devices through the app using wifi, so make sure you have an ethernet cord handy. Mostly I use the app to check on things when I'm away, or if I hear something I need to check at night.

Need a better UI. Need to be able to one click to enable or not enable motion detection. Need to be able to turn off the camera. I have several wyze cameras and I can turn all of them off from their app. Also, why do I have to go past several screens to get back to live view? For example, I change a setting under configuration and have to go back at least 3 screens just because I turned off/on motion? Takes too long to get to camera settings after seeing for motion. UI is very dated.

I works when it does and I like it, except it has major bugs. For one, just exiting the app is full of lag. Then it crashes too often, and if it does, sometimes all the cameras you added are gone because the only way to enter the app is to delete the cache and/or stored data. Rather infuriating. I think I will have better luck writing my own program. The API is available so maybe it's time.
