WyzeCam: Unboxing, Review, and Giveaway!

My new toy, can be your new toy!

I’ve been looking at getting a home security camera setup, but just hadn’t taken the plunge. When I saw the price tag on these tiny cameras, I knew I had to at least try it. Let me tell you, these little cams pack a big punch!

The camera connects to WiFi, so you can monitor your home while on the go. It also offers two way communication so you can chat with people at home, or tell someone robbing you to get out!

The WyzeCam also offers,

  • 1080p Full HD: 2.8mm focal length. 110º wide angle lens. 1/2.7″ CMOS sensor. 1920×1080 (1080p) full HD
  • Night Vision: F2.0 aperture, IR-CUT filter, and two 850nm infrared LEDs
  • Motion Detection with push alerts to your phone.
  • Smart Sound Recognition, the camera even listens for smoke alarms and CO monitors
  • Rolling 14 day cloud storage. Alerts that you receive will record a 12-15 second video clip which is saved to a cloud where you can review, or download and save. This is free and requires no additional cost or subscription.
  • Continuous recording with the use of a MicroSD card.
  • Time Lapse video, to perhaps record your day at home in hyper speed?

The WyzeCam comes with an amazing price tag of $19.99 if purchased through the WyzeCam site.

Watch the video below as I unbox and set up a camera, then leave a comment for a chance to win one of three WyzeCams offered by the company for our readers.

Important: Winners of the WyzeCam will be picked randomly. I will ship the cameras anywhere in the US or Canada. If you wish to comment on the post, but don’t have an address in the US or Canada I can ship to, please let us know so that we can ensure only those eligible to receive the cameras are in the running.

Disclaimer: While WyzeCam has graciously provided units for a giveaway, I purchased my units on my own, and didn’t speak to the company until after I had already made my purchase. The opinions expressed in the video are entirely my own.

      I would love to have this so I can watch the house from work and be able to talk to my dogs as well.

  • Wayno

    Brad is neglecting Aussie readers 😭😭😭

  • Wayno

    I have a US address you can ship to and it won’t cost you a cent!! (I’m talking about you in case you hadn’t noticed) lmao

  • MePiikan LzBolaz

    Watched the video (yes all of it) and I must say they I’m very impressed with the camera. For me the first practical use that came to mind is as a baby monitor. They are super expensive these days and for $20, this is an awesome alternative. By any chance were you able to test the WiFi range?

  • Kevin Button

    The camera looks really cool. Not looking to win just wanted to share that I was surprised at the quality for such a reasonable price.

  • GhostRider71

    I would love to have this security camera so I can watch the house when we’re away.

    Great review. Looking forward to trying one out😏

  • CraigC

    Great review and a great demo. I’m going to order one for watching the front door. Would love to have a 2nd to watch the garage or back door. As I live in MN, is the cam going to work in an unheated garage below freezing?
