At only $20, the Wyze Cam is about the tenth of the price of some of its competitors. It’s an indoor camera with 1080p HD, eight times optical zoom, and a field of view of 110 degrees. While the viewing angle is a bit more narrow than I like, otherwise, I’m impressed with the Wyze Cam’s video display. It also has awesome infrared night vision and two-way audio.
Storage-wise, the Wyze Cam knocks it out of the park. It offers local storage through a USB port and 14 days of free cloud storage. Keep in mind that some companies charge a dollar a day for cloud storage, so this is incredibly generous on top of the low price. I also love that the camera integrates with both Amazon Alexa and IFTTT, so you’ll be able to use vocal commands and create convenient home automations. Although the Wyze Cam lacks person detection or facial recognition, it does have smart sound recognition for your smoke and C.O alarms. Pretty impressive for $20!
