Roku, a company best known for streaming media players and smart TVs, is expanding its product offerings to include smart home devices. Today, the company announced a partnership with Wyze and Walmart to sell a suite of products, including security cameras, video doorbells, smart lights, and plugs.
As the top-selling smart TV OS in the United States, Roku is uniquely positioned to enter the smart home market. Current Roku customers already have what they need to integrate a video doorbell into their smart home experience. The Roku video doorbells show them who’s on their porch right, and they can bring up a live stream from any of their connected Roku security cameras. According to a statement from the company, Roku smart home devices will be compatible with third-party voice integrations as well as Roku Voice.
Roku’s initial offering of smart home devices includes:
- Roku Indoor Camera: $26
- Roku Indoor Camera 2-Pack: $49
- Roku Indoor Camera 360°: $39
- Roku Outdoor Camera: $73
- Roku Outdoor Wired Camera: $49
- Roku Floodlight Camera: $99
- Roku Video Doorbell & Chime: $79
- Roku Wire-free Video Doorbell & Chime: $99
- Roku Smart Bulb Color: $17
- Roku Smart Bulb White: $23
- Roku Smart Light Strip 16.4 ft: $22
- Roku Smart Light Strip 32.8 ft: $44
- Roku Indoor Smart Plug: $13
- Roku Outdoor Smart Plug: $14
Roku developed the new smart home devices in partnership with Wyze Labs. So, it’s not surprising that they are rebranded Wyze products (with a slightly higher price tag), likely with proprietary software to work with Roku’s ecosystem. Roku will sell the devices in Walmart stores starting on October 17th. That said, you can pre-order the devices online through from Roku and Walmart starting today.
