If you’re looking for smart home security cameras, you know how expensive they can be (we’re looking at you, Nest Cam and Ring Stick Up Cam). But don’t worry – they aren’t the only games in town.

You can grab a top-notch smarthome camera with unbeatable image quality – and even color night vision and live streaming – for a bargain. In fact, many shoppers have done just that, making the new Wyze HD Cam v3 an Amazon’s Choice item for just $33. In fact, it’s so popular that it’s received a five-star rating from over 3,000 reviewers.

And if you have Amazon Prime, of course you get free shipping. not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your 30 day free trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

New for 2021

The Wyze Cam v3 beats the previous version by a distance. It features night vision in full color, instead of cloudy gray and green. One happy Amazon shopper shared: “The night vision is incredible. Our alleyway is fairly dark, but on the camera it looks fully lit, and that’s with the infrared light turned off. Really good at picking up movement, and I’d say 95 accurate at detecting people. .”

It has a wider viewing angle to capture more action, and it’s weatherproof, so it’s now suitable for outdoor use. The camera detects motion and records when it detects activity. And HD live streaming provides an incredibly clear picture.

“This camera is a huge improvement over the v2,” raved about a five star reviewer. “Aside from the wider angle of view (more camera coverage), the night vision is insanely good in color. The fact that this can be used outdoors and withstand the elements makes it perfect.”

Safe and sound

The camera records video and audio to a microSD card (which can hold up to 32GB) and also stores it in the cloud, so your footage is always available when you need to check it.

More good news: The indoor smarthome camera works with Alexa or Google Assistant for hands-free navigation and voice commands. Sharing features allow multiple family members to access video recordings and a live stream. Say one five star reviewer: “Great little camera!”
