For a long time, Wyze was best described as the company that sold high-quality smart home products for less than the rest. But recently it started moving to the subscription game, first with full motion tracking, then Cam Plus, followed by home security monitoring. If you̵
If you haven’t been paying attention, Wyze has had a product release. In recent months it announced the Wyze Cam v3, the Wyze robotic vacuum cleaner and handheld vacuum cleaner, a security monitoring system, smartwatch and more. In any case, Wyze took pre-orders for the products at a “discounted price.” The Wyze Cam v3 started at $ 19.99, but will cost $ 23.99 after the pre-order period.
That’s still an excellent price for a security camera, especially one as capable as the v3 model. But it can sting if you miss the deal, as Wyze sold through stocks fairly quickly. And that’s where Cam Plus discounts come into play, according to an email from Wyze sent to subscribers.
Starting with the Wyze Cam v3, Cam Plus subscribers will continue to pay the “pre-order” price even when the product moves to the general public. Everyone else will pay $ 23.99, but you will pay $ 19.99 if you are a subscriber.
In addition, Wyze says it is adding new features for Wyze Cam Plus subscribers. Both revolve around detection features and bring Wyze Cams in line with similar offerings from Nest and Ring. In addition to the existing Person Detection feature, Cam Plus subscribers can now enable Package and Vehicle Detection features. You don’t have to pay anything extra and the options are now rolling out.
Both do exactly what the names suggest, and if you’ve ever felt the need to check your video doorbell or camera like a hawk for a package from FedEx or Amazon, package detection is something to get excited about. The new detection options and discounted prices are out now, so you should be able to take advantage immediately.
For anyone interested in signing up, Wyze Cam Plus costs $ 2 per camera per month, or $ 15 per year if you’re upfront.
