Like many people, we thought the Wyze Car was just an April Fools Day prank and missed out on the original launch. But Wyze is giving us another chance; It’s opening Wyze Car orders in periodic “waves,” giving everyone an oppertunity to grab the neat device before it sells out again.
Update, 11/1/21 1:26 pm Eastern: The Wyze store crashed shortly after opening Wyze Car orders. There is now a queue to place Wyze Car orders. Give Wyze your email to get an alert when it’s your turn to buy a Wyze Car (a spot in the queue doesn’t guarantee a purchase, though).
The Wyze Car is a small, affordable vehicle that you can control from your phone. It allows you to survey an area using a connected Wyze Cam V2 or Wyze Cam Black, and it even has a built-in headlight for nighttime use. Impressively, the Wyze Car has a two-hour battery and works indoors or outdoors (though it isn’t water-resistant).
Of course, the Wyze Car requires a Wyze Cam V2 or Wyze Cam Black to work properly. These cameras are technically discontinued, though Wyze is selling the Wyze Cam Black again, presumably to push Wyze Car sales.
If this is anything like the original Wyze Car launch, then Wyze will sell around 500 units with every hour-long drop. We expect the Wyze Car to sell out today, so order yours before it’s gone.
With a 2-hour battery and built-in headlights, the Wyze Car is ready to traverse the hellscape of your living room or backyard. It connects to your phone’s Wi-Fi signal for remote in-app control and livestreaming. Keep in mind that this product requires a Wyze Cam V2 or Wyze Cam Black.
Wyze Cam Black
The Wyze Cam Black shoots HD video and features a Night Vision mode. Pair it with your Wyze Car to … well, you need it to use the Wyze Car.
