Wyze’s Person Detection Feature Will Disappear Temporarily In 2020

The security cameras from Wyze will provisionally lose their feature of person detection in January next year after the AI firm it joined hands with on the feature unexpectedly ended their deal. On its website, Wyze claimed that its deal with Xnor.ai comprised a clause letting the startup to end the deal “without reason at any moment.”

Even though Wyze confesses that it has made “errors,” it claims that the loss of person detection feature might only be provisional. It claims that it aims to roll out its own in-house edition of the tech in 2020, and it will still be provided to its users free of cost. Wyze first included the person detection feature to its Wyze Cam Pan and Wyze Cam V2 earlier in July.

The cameras by Wyze have always had the benefit of being very affordable, with its entry-level camera having a price tag of only $20 versus the $199 for Nest. But the loss of person detection feature not more than a year after it was first launched, along with the temporary postponement to the launch of its subscription platform this month, represents that Wyze’s low costs come with threats.

Speaking of cameras, the code found in the newest edition of camera app by Samsung recommends that the firm is operating on a series of new camera modes for its handsets, media claimed. These comprise a new Director’s View mode that can allow you swiftly switch and preview between different lenses along with a new Vertical Panorama, Night Hyperlapse, Custom Filter, and “Single Take Photo” options.

The Director’s View mode seems interesting particularly. Media thinks that users will be capable of previewing or even filming from various camera sensors at the same time and then click on thumbnails to the right and left of the display to toggle between subject close-ups and different lenses.
