If the pithy little Wyze Cam Spotlight isn’t powerful enough to illuminate your driveway (it’s definitely not), then the company’s latest product will pique your interest. Meet the Wyze Cam Floodlight, a motion-detecting outdoor security camera with two full-sized LED lamps.
To our surprise, the Cam Floodlight isn’t just a Wyze Cam V3 glued to a big outdoor light. It features an independent motion detector with adjustable sensitivity, an integrated 105db siren, two-way audio support, and oddly enough, a USB port to power a second Wyze Cam V3. (So if you already have an outdoor light at your home, you can replace it with a Cam Floodlight and install a second Wyze Cam V3 without routing a ton of new wires.)
The Wyze Cam Floodlight’s lamps output a combined brightness of 2,600 lumens, making it an impressive upgrade for existing outdoor lights. And of course, this Cam Floodlight packs all the features you get with a normal Wyze Cam V3—Night Vision, IP65 weather-resistance, local storage; it’s all there!
You can now pre-order the Wyze Cam Floodlight for $100 (that’s $85 plus $15 for shipping). That’s more than twice the price of a standalone Wyze Cam V3, but to be fair, a decent outdoor floodlight with LED bulbs costs around $40. Shipping begins December 2021.
