Smart security cameras are an excellent way to keep an eye on the happenings in and around the home with live streaming, recording, and two-way audio capabilities right at your fingertips. Wyze's line of smart cameras are some of the most affordable options around, and now, thanks to an epic early Black Friday from Amazon, you can get started with smart home security for even less.
The Wyze Cam may be one of the most affordable home security options around, but it doesn't skimp on features. This smart camera offers 1080p HD resolution, two-way audio, night vision, and free cloud storage, plus it works with Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant for convenient voice controls.
Pan and tilt
In addition to the same great 1080p high definition video and two-way audio capabilities as the cheaper Wyze Cam, the Wyze Cam Pan adds in slick motorized pan and tilt controls. Motorized controls mean that you can get a complete 360-degree view of the inside of your home from anywhere in the world.
The standard Wyze Cam (opens in new tab), already a bargain at its retail price of $25, packs in tons of smart home goodness into a cute little cube frame. Wyze's smart camera sports 1080p high definition video with a 110-degree wide-angle lens that captures everything with crisp details during the day. At night, the Wyze Cam switches over to infrared night vision, enabling you to see distances up to 30 feet away. A built-in microphone and speaker give you the ability to communicate with family and even your pets from anywhere in the world.
For just a few more dollars, the Wyze Cam Pan (opens in new tab) adds in slick motorized controls into the mix. The Wyze Cam Pan can rotate a full 360-degrees and tilt 93-degrees so you can check in on the entire home without having to install cameras everywhere. An incredibly cool Pan and Scan mode automatically allows the camera to "patrol" your home with four preset positions, and of course, you can control it manually directly from your phone.
Both of Wyze's cameras come with 14-days of free cloud storage, so you don't have to worry about extra fees or another subscription to manage. Recordings are available to review through the free Wyze app on iOS (opens in new tab) and Android (opens in new tab), and the cameras also can link up with Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant for hands-free on-demand viewing through a compatible smart device. Unfortunately, Wyze cameras do not work with HomeKit, so if you are deep into the world of Apple, you may want to check out our guide to the best Apple Black Friday deals.
