Susan from San Diego, CA

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.

Can I Connect a WyzeCam to a Mesh Router Network?

WyzeCams

Episode 1582

Darren from Missouri

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.

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.
