Wyze is raising prices — again

Wyze is raising prices — again

Last year, Wyze made a whole lot of noise about how the new Cam v3 would deliver a bunch of enhancements for the same $20 price. Come launch day, the company couldn't hold true to its word, raising prices to $24 (before shipping) or requiring that you pay more on the side for a subscription service to get that original price. The company even buried those original claims regarding pricing when we called them out for it. Now Wyze is back with another price bump: The Wyze Cam v3 will cost $33. At least shipping is included this time.

Wyze Floor Lamp is an Assistant-less lamp with a Bluetooth remote

Our readers should be familiar with Wyze's products — if not the security cameras, at least the Assistant-integrated smart bulbs. In the latter vein, Wyze has just opened pre-orders for a new $30 (plus shipping) smart floor lamp, imaginatively named the Wyze Floor Lamp. It's a tightly focused 9W, 5'11" tall LED light on a gooseneck, paired with a Bluetooth remote that allows 11 different brightness levels.

Wyze launches $60/year home monitoring service with proactive 911 dispatch

If there's a speedrun record for releasing tech products, Wyze might be on track to break it. In November alone, the company announced new sprinklers, vacuums, thermostats, third-gen Wyze Cams, and smartwatches. Wyze isn't stopping there, as it has come through on the launch of its home monitoring service.

Wyze Robot Vacuum review, one month later: Better than it has to be at this price

Wyze Robot Vacuum review, one month later: Better than it has to be at this price

Wyze has made its name in the US by offering competent smart home hardware for startlingly little money—$20 for a camera, $50 for a smart thermostat, and so on. The $250 Wyze Robot Vacuum is by far its most expensive product, but it's still cheap compared to the competition. This device sports full 3D mapping, scheduling, and it's got an app that isn't terrible. Most importantly, it does a very good job cleaning, assuming you don't mind a little noise. Unfortunately, you can't control this device with Google Assistant, but that's one of the few drawbacks.

New Wyze Bulb Color is an Assistant-compatible RGB smart light at a rock-bottom price

Wyze has opened pre-orders for its new Wyze Bulb Color. $35 (plus $8 for shipping) gets you four RGB-equipped, Assistant-compatible, 1,100-lumen color smart bulbs. That works out to $10.74 each, which makes them among the least expensive Assistant-integrated smart bulbs you can get, and they're set to ship next month.

Wyze buries previous claim about keeping Cam v3 price down

Wyze buries previous claim about keeping Cam v3 price down

The Wyze Cam v3 is finally available for purchase after a short launch-day website snafu, but that $20 launch price the company told us during our review hasn't quite panned out — at least, not the way any of us thought it would. Right now, the only way to way to buy the camera is with a Cam Plus subscription, which can cost you almost twice as much, depending on how you do it. And when sales open more widely later, it still won't be $20.

Wyze announces new smart sprinkler controller that can sync with the weather forecast

Wyze announces new smart sprinkler controller that can sync with the weather forecast

Caring for your lawn can be painstaking, especially if you have a big yard. Thankfully, automatic sprinklers can make this process a lot easier by watering your grass based on a pre-set schedule. Nevertheless, your plants or lawn may not necessarily need to be watered systematically, especially when raining.

To help you save water and money and make your life simpler, Wyze just announced an eight-zone smart sprinkler controller that costs just $50 and can automatically sync with weather data to only water plants when needed. The brand is already famous for its very affordable household products, including its smart thermostat and robot vacuum, so it only makes sense for it to release a dead-cheap sprinkler controller.
