Totally wireless and weather-proof with 1080 recording capabilities, and it’s under USD $40… sign me up!
Taken from Engadget … Wyze has officially launched its first surveillance camera meant for outdoor use. The company began with affordable home monitoring cameras in 2017 and is now taking its product outside after apparent customer demand.
Wyze Cam Outdoor’s main differentiators from the company’s indoor cameras are that it’s wire-free and weather-resistant. There’s also a travel mode, which enables the camera to record anywhere offline and without a hub. That way, you can bring the camera to monitor a hotel room or campsite.
Otherwise, Wyze Cam Outdoor has features you’d expect: 1080p live streaming and recording, night vision, 8x digital zoom and two-way audio, among others. The rechargeable battery has a life of up to six months, and an included SD card stores up to 32GB of footage.
The outdoor camera has been Wyze’s most requested product, said Wyze Director of Product Marketing Scott Wilson. We gave WyzeCam’s first iteration a favorable review, so we’ll see if the WyzeCam Outdoor hits the mark as well.
A limited number of starter bundles are available today for $49.99 and include the camera, base station, base station power adapter, base station ethernet cable, a USB charging cable, a user guide and screw assembly. When a full inventory launch occurs at a to-be-determined date, the camera on its own will be available for $39.99. Get it at the Wyze website.
