The Wyze Cam v3 is an excellent indoor/outdoor Wi-Fi camera for an incredibly low price. There are just two problems. It’s frequently out of stock, and you have to subscribe to Wyze Cam Plus to buy it. Until now! Micro Center has the camera in stock in its stores and its website, and you don’t need a subscription to purchase.
In case you missed our review, the Wyze Cam v3 far outshines its sub $30 price. It works indoors and outdoors, has night vision and a starlight sensor, and produces quality video considering the cost. It’s hard to fault the camera when it costs so little.
But getting ahold of one is another matter. Due to a chip shortage, Wyze has trouble keeping it in stock at the company’s website. And when it does have them for sale, it’s reserving them for Wyze Cam Plus subscribers.
You can buy the subscription and the camera together to get around that, but that’ll leave you spending $35 plus shipping. After that, it’s $24 for each Wyze Cam.
If you don’t want a cloud subscription, then order a Wyze Cam v3 from Micro Center. You’ll spend $30, which saves some money over buying a single camera directly from Wyze. Some stores have stock right now (our local store shows 25+), and if you don’t have a Micro Center nearby, you can have it shipped.
Just head to the Wyze Cam v3 page at Micro Center. If a pop up appears asking for which store you want to pick up from, don’t worry. Just scroll all the way to the bottom of the list, and choose “shippable” items. Unless you prefer to pickup, in which case choose your store. If you have it sent to you, you’ll pay shipping which will add to the cost of the camera, but you pay for shipping through Wyze too. For now, that’s the only way to buy the camera outside of Wyze, as you’ll only find the Wyze Cam v2 on Amazon.
There’s no telling how long stock will last, though, so don’t wait if you’ve been wanting a Wyze Cam v3.
Wyze Cam v3
For $30, you couldn’t ask for better performance from an indoor and outdoor camera. The Wyze Cam v3 is Wi-Fi powered, and can see even in the darkest of nights thanks to its starlight sensor.
