Susan installed Zoom to handle her physical therapy sessions online. She discovered though, that her computer has no camera or microphone built-in. So what should she get? She doesn't want to spend a lot in a limited amount of time. Leo says if she doesn't have a laptop or a smartphone, then she needs to be looking to buy a webcam. Leo likes Logitech's webcams. The Logitech C922 or C910 is great. They have built-in microphones as well and plug into your USB port.
Susan has a fighting studio, and she needs some security cameras. Preferably something wireless. Recommendations? Leo says that battery-powered cameras wouldn't work because they are motion-controlled. So Leo recommends cameras that are wired for AC power. He recommends the Google NEST Camera. But the downside is, that they're expensive and the monthly fee is required for storage. A better affordable option is WyzeCam. They start at $20. Offer night vision. Have two-way audio. And you can view them online.
Darren is looking to upgrade his network to a Mesh router and is having issues connecting his WyzeCams. Rich says that a lot of people are having issues with this because the WyzeCams are 2.4ghz and the mesh routers will switch between 2.4 and 5 GHz. That can cause camera connection issues. Google's mesh router will automatically connect to the band that the camera supports. So he may want to check out the Google WiFi mesh router.
Rich has Eero and he was able to hook up his WyzeCams without any issue.
John bought two Wyze Cams for his security, and he's constantly being notified of movement. Can he fine tune it to be more selective? Leo says that because they are so economical, the software is fairly basic. He can go into the settings and limit notifications per hour though.
Sara is moving to Victorville, and she's concerned about how spotty the internet will be. Leo recommends Broadbandreports.com to get reviews and find out what the best internet service provider is for that area. She's also going to be getting wireless security cameras to access them from her mobile device. But she's concerned it'll eat up all her data and kill her upload speed. Leo says that can happen if the cameras are recording all the time. Leo recommends the WyzeCam v2.
