Why did Wyze choose to use the cloud for Person Detection?

Fewer limitations and better performance.

We decided to use the cloud this time - and not another on-edge solution - because this way, computing resources are unlimited. This way, Wyze faces fewer limitations when designing AI features such as:

  1. Better model performance.
  2. Running different models at the same time.
  3. Supporting a wider range of devices and services.
  4. Shorter update periods.

Considering those benefits to users, we’ve decided to go with a cloud solution this time around. But at the same time, we have also kicked off the effort of building an on-edge solution.
