Wyze Fails To Deliver Own On-Board Analytics, Launches Novel Name Your Own Price Service

By: Zach Segal, Published on Jul 24, 2020

While Wyze failed to deliver their own onboard analytics to replace the removed XNOR.ai ones, Wyze has now launched a novel to the security industry, name your own price service for its new cloud analytics.

Inside this note, we examine what happened, what this means for Wyze, how name your own price might be successful and why there is an argument that this is "bait-and-switching" that they promised not to do 8 months ago.
