Earlier, Wyze cam couldn’t differentiate between the person and a pet but now with AI person detection, it controls the types of push notifications we receive. It notifies when a person is detected on our mobile app, jumps quickly to filter videos with people in them. It will also reduce the number of notifications pushed to the users of the app without any false alerts.
