The Android app tinyCamPro can view WyzeCam cameras.  TinyCam can act as a web server allowing access to WyzeCam as well as other IP cameras and the camera in the Android device.  I have it as a "gateway", one open port on my router allowing me to view old Android, old iPhone and a WyzeCam in ActionTiles.

I have to view one of the cameras in browser which triggers password pop-up, then they all show in AT.   TinyCam allows usrname:password in URL according to instructions but haven't tried that yet.


For $25, WyzeCam are great quality IMO.  Wish I would've waited a week, they have a pre-order for v2 now; better audio, better video chip, matte finish.


I saw somewhere IFTTT integration coming in March too.

I’d doubt their reliability also at $20 ea. But I now know of 3 people that have them installed and all 3 say that they’re pretty good, especially given the price tag.

It's too bad they didn't use classic "Foscam" firmware. I heard of some successful (?) experiments by (good-guy) hackers, but they were subsequently locked out.

These cameras are based on the Xiaomi Xiafang camera solution but with different firmware. See the discussion here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Abode/comments/78vc7w/wyzecam/
