Not to bump an old thread but wanted to provide an update on this: I’ve been reasonably happy with the Wyze outdoor camera kit for a while, enough so that I upgraded to 5 cameras, a second base station, and even gifted one to a family member that has liked it and since expanded their setup. There is a catch though, they recently changed their software/free features set. I’ll need to look into it more but by default the motion event recording events no longer seem to be free (or may not stay that way long?). Kind of a bummer, really. This implies that in an off-grid scenario you won’t get these either. On the other hand they did upgrade their ‘detection zone” settings to be more customizable and after a year+ of outdoor use the hardware hasn’t seemed to suffer (though eventually the battery should start to degrade). I think the overall rankings are still pretty fair, basically a true off grid solution sacrifices enough of a “convenience factor” to not switch things up unless you really have the patience to dial everything in perfectly, but buyer be aware: your terms of service can change without your consent!
