Surprise! Wyze has secretly been working on the Wyze Cam v3, and it’s impressive how well it works. I’ll show you how bright the camera’s night vision looks with its starlight sensor and dual IR. Wyze Cam v3 also has improved audio, a wider field of view, and is water resistant for outdoor use.

Would this be a good camera to sit in my window and record any trespassing, including the ability to identify- see clearly the person? (would not be a great distance but within 20 feet) Would the glass deter the view? And what about the app to review? Liked this review and looking to invest in it for this reason. Great job!

I pre-ordered one in late November, and it came sometime in early January. Set it up, and was instantly impressed when night came around. The low light function worked flawlessly, and for $20, I consider it a steal. I have an Arlo Pro 2 5-Camera system that I purchased for around $750 when it came out in 2017 or 2018, and instantly, there was a noticeable difference. There is only one drawback that I have encountered so far, and that is the fact that it has direct wiring. For around $110 less for each camera, you have better night vision, better quality, and it doesn't need a base station. If you have a power source readily available, then this is the one for you.

Well the $20. price is GONE! $23.99+shipping so about $30. I feel Wyze misled the public on this one. The App NEVER showed them in stock at the $20. price. I also feel as though they misled the public by Failing to tell people that they were discontinuing the Door sensors and Motion sensors that were really small. (not sure what #) Again, their App ONLY showed them as being Out of Stock. But what FROSTS MY WHATITZS is their new door sensors are only available (as of 3/23/21) as "Free" with 3rd party monitoring. I'd rather pay a higher price than be FORCED to take 3rd party monitoring. Please check me on this, I'd LOVE to be wrong! I am a GREAT FAN of Wyze but on these things, Hey Wyze, WAKE UP!

Today I went to the wyze website to buy a couple of v2 and was surprised the v3 even existed. Well they're sold out so I guess I gotta wait. Also the wyze sense needs it's own hub otherwise you're forced to buy v2s.

Stay away from the Wyze Cam v3 for now - they are having major connectivity issues. Some cameras are better than others, but in some lots, 50% of the cameras lose connection through a single wall. Which is sad - the night vision on these is truly unbelievable. And when in the same room as the WiFi router/access point, it connects much quicker than the v2 - just don't move them any further away! I would STRONGLY suggest waiting for v4 - or until they recall these and replace with working ones - I have a feeling they have an antenna problem during manufacture (the most common problem with embedded / IoT devices)

Not sure why everyone saying “color night vision “ if you turn on night vision it’s still black and white with ir lights , if u actually turn off hr night vision it’s a color imagine without using IR LIGHTS WHICH IS Pretty much STANDARD view . And yes standard color view is 100 times better then v2 but still not sure why is everyone saying it has color night vision ?

Wyze camera? It would be VERY UNWIZE to purchase these lame ass unreliable cameras. I've had two. Neither of them work properly. They go for hours not recording then start to work again randomly. I had micro SD cards in both. Buyer beware. Same with the Momentum. I cannot find a reliable camera. Does anyone know of any that has worked for them?

It's not night vision that you're discussing. It's a low-light amplifier.

Great review but the V3 has a constant static that is bad when viewing it live or playback. Do your research on static sound for Wyze cam V3 and you’ll find that a lot of people are having this issue. Not good.

HD vs 1080p - personally it would be nice to get the HD but for using it as security cameras, I think 1080p is just fine with what they have done in v3. Maybe for other uses HD would be great. For me, I like the $20 price point and its a big selling point I have when I tell others about Wyze against other cams.

You'll have to spend well over $20 to get this or V2. Costs over $25 as they tack on shipping and tax, including taxing shipping charges unless you're in one of the few lucky states. That's why Amazon just charges $26.

1080p is enough for the purpose, we're not watching Hollywood movie.

Except it was a *BIG FAT LIE.* Wyze had us fooled this whole time. The Cam v3 was listed at $20, but it was _"OUT OF STOCK"_ (which is BS in itself because it had not been released to be sold out). Never the less, the Cam v3 was "in stock" as of a couple weeks ago with the sticker price of $35, AND you have to buy a subscription to CAMPlus *RIPOFF ALERT!!!*

Hi. Thanks for the v3 review. I'm after a camera to record my new house construction build. Naturally I won't have wifi available or the ability to use a base station. Features I would want are long life battery to endure non-sunny days, ability for battery to be charged via solar panel permanently plugged in, for an image/photo to be captured every say 5 mins and placed on local SD storage or sent via 3G/4G SIM to Cloud or FTP or Email, and optionally human motion sensor photo snapshots or recording for say 20 secs and again either stored locally or sent via SIM. Local storage needs to accept say 256GB or 512GB card as I'd want to have images/recordings for 6 months as I'd be placing camera on roof of neighbours single storey home for the duration of the build. Can you recommend anything?

Nowhere to be found in Europe at less than $80, four times the claimed price. Same problem with the V2 since its release, two years ago. I'm sick with this brand. Promoting a product without being able to distribute it at an equal price worldwide despite worlwide advertising is just mocking the world.

Your speaking of Wyze is fine. However, your experienced and remember that. A typical consumer can't review like you can and do comparisons. FACT ! it doesn't come with manuals or instructions as to how to use features and what, how and why it works. Figure it yourself through trial and error and going to their own forums page to look at chat and replies. I spoke directly with support and they just stated the are looking into it for future use to supply one. PEOPLE REVIEWING IT on USposts ARE EXPERIENCED AND KNOWLEDGE with comparison. IF typical consumer came into my store and has no experience or professional i would not encourage them to buy WYZE. Yes, a lot of features FREE or more with subscription, but no instructions as to how, why and what as to use the features just figure it out yourself.

The Wyzecam company is pulling off a big scam right now. They offered the V3 back before Christmas if you bought into their cam plus package for 3 months , but the V3 were back ordered . The problem is , you cant even use their cam plus (if you really wanted to) because you dont have the camera yet. Now that they have them in stock again , the only way you can get one is to buy one with the Cam Plus again . Meanwhile us people that ordered ours a couple months ago are screwed and doubt if our verification code will ever be valid to use once they take camera orders. STAY AWAY !!!

Hey Reid, did you get the email were Wyze has finally got the Wyze Cam V3 back in stock but if you want to buy one they're forcing you to buy the Cam plus at 15.00 a year? I would love another V3 but I really don't like being forced to buy something else. I really like Wyze but think this stinks that you have to buy something you don't want to get what you do want. Just wondered if you knew?

ginito 2 months ago
I find it absurd that some people complain about the 1080p... it is a security camera with low power consumption! And this little device has to stream its recordings to your phone. How much consumption and processing power do you think it will need to stream 4K from its Micro SD to your shitty ass phone for you to review the footage on a small screen anyways? You’d think that you can zoom in further? Then perhaps the answer is better lenses on the camera. Stop complaining you whinny people!

Wyze seriously needs to remove the low bitrate limit! It also needs an exposure adjustment! The camera has far more potential but is limited by their firmware/software! If you flash the v2 camera with webcam firmware the bitrate is MUCH higher and the images are much less pixelated, which shows it's an artificial limit placed on the cameras!
