Wyze has announced a new subscription service for its home security cameras, although it has delayed launch due to unspecified "critical issues." Subscribers to Wyze & # 39; s $ 1.49 per month instead of limiting users to 12 seconds of recording every five minutes. Complete Motion Capture service record as long as the camera can detect movement.
The launch of the new subscription makes Wyze's cameras much more competitive with those of Nest, Arlo and Ring, which have been offering subscription services with cloud recording for a while. However, Wyze's prices are cheaper than those of its competitors. Ring and Arlo & # 39; s plans start with around $ 3 per month per device, or $ 10 for multiple devices, while Nest's subscription covers all of your devices for $ 6 per month from next year.
The Wyze subscription can be more expensive if you have a lot of cameras, but otherwise it's probably the cheapest option, especially considering that the Wyze cameras start at just $ 20.
Both the Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan & # 39; s are compatible with the new subscription, keeping your clips in the cloud for up to 14 days. Wyze also offers a free 14-day trial for you to try the service. If you do not opt for the subscription service, the Wyze & # 39; s cameras can record continuously on a local microSD card.
