The Wyze Cam V2 has been in our household for almost two years now. It’s been the main camera system to keep me updated on what’s going on inside and outside the house. Check out this twitter feed I caught a few months ago of a plane flying really low… like really low. That FedEx plane was on it’s way up, 15km away from an airport. It was really big.

Like I was saying, the Wyze Cam V2 has been the main camera system in our household. You can read about all the features here: https://automatelife.net/wyze-cam-v2/ The Wyze Cam V2 price point is excellent. Under $30USD. You can’t really beat that with all the features it has. The camera seems to work really well (Good Resolution and 8x Optical Zoom). And you don’t have to pay a subscription. However, you can pay a subscription now to get live motion captures. I would recommend getting a 32GB SD card.

What I like about the Wyze Cam V2:

  • The Price! Really. Compared to some smart cameras at the $75 or even $150 for the closest competitor with regards to features. You’ve got the most economical smart camera in the market.
  • The features: 1080p, 2-Way Audio, IR Night Vision, Free-Cloud Storage for 12-second motion detection clips
  • The suite of sensors: You can use your Wyze Cam to connect a pair of contact sensors and a motion sensor.
  • Wyze App gives you a ton of options to group and configures your cameras pretty much any way you like it. You can create automation scenes with Wyze Bulbs, Wyze Sensors, and Wyze Plugs

What I don’t like about the Wyze Cam V2:

  • A small Smart Camera means a light-weight camera. The Wyze Cam basically fits anywhere. Ok; what’s not to like? But if you don’t want to use the stickers (which are pretty good stickers) and the magnetic base, you might find the camera slipping and sliding when your kids come by the Wyze Cam and play Tonka and Barbies around the camera… Maybe they could have added improved the rubber bases to prevent movement.
  • Wyze Cam drops out of WiFi every once in a while: I’ve been experiencing a few disconnects from WiFi. Although I believe I have a pretty sturdy WiFi network (since other devices are not dropping off), it seems that devices on 2.4GHz like the Wyze Cam are susceptible to dropping off the network. This can be inconvenient and painful. I have yet to hear an explanation for this.
  • Wyze App Interaction Design & Usability: Wyze is improving their User Interface (UX) all the time. I just don’t think they got all the breakdowns right. Like where do you think you should access the settings for motion detection? In Event Settings or Notifications? I don’t know. I have to figure that out each time I’m in Device Settings. Don’t get me wrong. They have tons of features to configure – just wondering if they could group some of them together.

Wyze Cam V2 Recommendation

Yes, you should get as many Wyze Cams as you need. They are really functional and fit well in any home. They have just enough cable to reach where you need them. Wyze Labs seems to have figured out how to get the most competitive features for a Smart Cam into the Wyze Cam. I don’t know how they did it, especially when most of the processing happens within the camera. It’s quite an achievement considering its competitors like the Arlo or the Nest Cam. The Wyze Cam is also very economical. These cameras are definitely ‘Wyze’. If you need a Smart Camera right away, just get these. The decision to buy is really easy here. The Wyze Cam is one of the best Smart Cameras on the market. The Wyze Cam V2 will fit perfectly into your Smart Home.
