Meet the Wyze HD Cam and the Wyze HD Cam Pan. Today only, save 20 percent on these smart home cameras with prices starting at just $21—as part of Amazon’s ‘Deal of the Day.’

Wyze HD Cam

Unlike the cameras you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on, the Wyze is on sale for $21. In fact, you can buy nearly six Wyze HD Cams for less than the price of one Nest Cam, or nearly five for the price of one Ring Cam.

Along with Full HD live streaming, the Wyze model features two-way audio, so you can talk to house guests via the Wyze app. It also detects motion—it can record whenever it senses activity around your home.

While it records video and audio on a microSD card (which can hold up to 32GB), it will also save to the cloud. The Wyze HD Cam even has night vision, so it can work all day and night for around-the-clock home security.

“I bought this to monitor my chickens when I’m not home,” wrote a delighted five-star shopper. “They are young birds and we’ve had a dog get in their run and we’ve also been battling extreme heat. Honestly, I could watch these birds all day now that I have this camera. They are far more entertaining than work!! The camera quality is phenomenal for such an affordable camera.”

In addition, this indoor smart home camera works with Alexa or Google Assistant for hands-free navigation and voice commands. It also has sharing features, so family members can access video recordings and a live stream.

“I was a Nest user, had purchased a few cams for me and did a full setup for my parents, with two outdoor cams as well as indoor cams. While browsing for other options for my own home since Nest is very expensive, I came across Wyze and it has changed the game for me,” added another satisfied shopper. After installing it (by the way very simple and easy) I realized how good it was and ended up buying six more (I gave away some) that’s how impressed I was...Cannot rave enough about this device!”

Want two cams instead? This Wyze Cam two-pack is on sale for $41, or $10 off at Amazon, today only. That’s a 20 percent savings and the lowest price ever from the retail giant!

On sale for $30 (was $38), this Wyze Cam Pan can do everything the Wyze HD Cam mentioned above can do, but it can also pan from side-to-side a full 360-degrees and tilt vertically up to 93-degrees. And for good measure, this smart home camera can zoom. You can control the direction of the Wyze Cam Pan with Wyze app, while you can also save clips in the cloud for 14 days for free. This is something Nest doesn’t offer and shoppers just love it!

“This little camera is very impressive,” raved a satisfied Amazon shopper. “This Wyze camera produces excellent picture quality and has a very easy to use app. The fact that you get 14 days of clips storage for free just blows the Nest cam out of the water.”
