Unlike the cameras you can easily spend hundreds of dollars on on, the Wyze is on sale for just $21 (originally $25). In fact, you can buy eight Wyze HD Cams for less than the price of one Nest Cam.

Along with Full HD live streaming, the Wyze model features two-way audio, so you can talk to house guests via the Wyze app. The smart home indoor camera has motion detection, so it can start recording whenever it senses activity around your home. Although it also records video and audio on a microSD card (which can hold up to 32GB worth of data), it can also save to the cloud for 14 days of storage for free. The Wyze HD Cam even has night vision, so it can work all day and night for around-the-clock home security.

Additionally, the indoor smart home camera works with Alexa or Google Assistant for hands-free navigation and voice commands. It also has sharing features, so you can send your household video recordings and a live video stream.

Not bad for just $21.

Here’s what Amazon shoppers (and one chicken farmer) have to say about this smart home camera:

“I bought this to monitor my chickens when I’m not home,” wrote a delighted five-star shopper. “They are young birds and we’ve had a dog get in their run and we’ve also been battling extreme heat. Honestly, I could watch these birds all day now that I have this camera. They are far more entertaining than work!! The camera quality is phenomenal for such an affordable camera.”

Another Amazon reviewer added, “I initially bought one camera, tried it out for a week and fell in love. I ended up buying two more cameras for my house shortly after. Wyze cam is setting a new standard for what to expect in a wifi camera. Most companies want to charge you for cloud storage, but Wyze cam doesn’t. With Wyze cam you get all the bells and whistles without breaking the bank.”

The reviews quoted above reflect the most recent versions at the time of publication.
