This Insanely Affordable Wireless Camera Makes Home Security Cheap & Easy
If you’re thinking about finally turning your regular old-fashioned home into a futuristic smart home, the first thing you’re going to want is a wifi camera. Because what’s the point of living in the future if you aren’t monitoring every room in your house around the clock from wherever you are in the world, like some sort of billionaire with a priceless art collection? Unfortunately, a lot of smart home wireless video cameras are either very expensive or very complicated, or both. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With Wyze Cam by Wyze Labs, you can keep home security simple and ridiculously affordable without compromising on video quality or design.
Wyze Labs was founded for the express purpose of making high quality, easy-to-use, affordable smart home technology accessible to everyone. And with their Wyze Cam wireles smart home cameras, they’ve definitely achieved that purpose.
The original Wyze Cam is a sleek white cube measuring just 2.2 x 2.2 inches. It captures 1080p video and uses your wireless home network to stream it straight to your phone or mobile device via the Wyze App, giving you a live look in on your home whenever you want. Wyze Cam also features night vision with a range of up to 30 feet, plus two-way audio communication, which is perfect if you want to monitor and interact with your kids, or even your pets.
With just a few swipes, the Wyze App can be configured to send alerts to your phone any time motion or sound is detected. Motion tagging technology detects and outlines the motion so you know exactly what triggered the alert, and 14 days worth of saved alerts are stored in the cloud absolutely free with no additional subscription required. If you want more storage than that, you can simply add a microSD card and enable continuous recording or schedule custom time-lapse videos.
The Wyze App can also be used to setup and view multiple cameras. And because Wyze Cams are compatible with Amazon’s Alexa platform, all you have to do is ask Alexa to show you the front door, or the kids room, and the image will pop right up on supported Alexa-enabled devices.
The original Wyze Cam gives you brilliant video quality and tons of versatility. However, it also viewing angle is fixed, which means a single camera might not suffice for every area of your home. That’s why Wyze Labs went and made Wyze Cam Pan.
The Wyze Cam Pan features all the specs and functions of the original Wyze Cam—the 1080p video, the motion detection, the motion tagging, the night vision, the two-way audio—but with the addition of 360-degree panning and a 93-degree vertical range.
With a rotation speed of 110 degrees per second, the Wyze Cam Pan performs a full 360-degree scan in under three seconds. Simply use the Wyze App to enable the “Pan Scan” feature that automatically scans your room based on up to four “waypoints,” and you won’t miss a single thing.
Whether you’re looking to make your home more secure, or you simply want to take advantage of modern technology and check in on your family when you can’t be there in person, you won’t find a better value in smart home cameras than Wyze. And the setup couldn’t be easier. So why wait another day?
