Wyze Cam is a Seattle, WA based company that manufactures smart home technology such as security cameras, including the Wyze Cam, Wyze Cam Pan, Wyze Cam Black, and the Wyze wireless camera.
Customers report their Wyze cams are no longer operable after the company rolled out the Wyze Cam Plus subscription service. Customers report repeated network connection issues even though they have a strong Wi-fi connection. Further, the internal SD card fails to record video footage as it is intended to do.
Customers also report receiving notifications asking them to choose the subscription service. Customers complain the notifications are deceptive and intended to move them away from a free version to a subscription service.
Due to the timing of customers’ Wyze Cams becoming non-operable as soon as the company rolled out the Wyze Cam Plus subscription service, customers believe the issues they are facing are specifically meant to force them to upgrade to the Wyze Cam Plus subscription service.
The Wyze wireless camera retails for $59.99, and Wyze wired cameras range from $29.99 to $33.99.
Wyze’s terms of service contain an arbitration provision that may be applicable to this potential claim.
