      Wyze Sense sits in an odd place. It's cheaper than any home security system you can buy, but it's not a home security system. It is a self-monitoring system. Despite this fact, there is much to love about this 20-inch sensor package.

      Here's what we like

      • Incredibly cheap
      • Fast messages
      • Very small, fits anywhere

      And what we don't

      • ] Not a real security system
      • Do not disturb phone call
      • Requires at least one Wyze camera

      Whether it's the original Wyze Cam or Wyze Cam Pan, we love Wyze products. At the heart of Wyze is a basic promise: reliable products at incredibly low prices. Wyze Sense starter pack continues that tradition.

      If you already own a Wyze camera and you have ever considered adding motion and contact providers to your house, stop reading this review.

      As long as you don't want full security options, jump straight to buying a starter package right now.

      Stupidly cheap, but not complete security

      At about the size of a quarter, these sensors are incredibly small Josh Hendrickson

      For $ 20 you get a bridge (think of it as hub), two door or window contactors and a motion sensor. Sensors go on things that open and close, like your doors or windows, the motion sensor does exactly what sounds, and you might want it in a room where you don't have a camera, compared to similar SimpliSafe sensors you would spend $ 30 for Just two contactors, or just a motion sensor, and you still need to buy a $ 185 hub, but with Wyze Sense you won't get a complete security system.

      With SimpliSafe, every kit you buy comes with one t keyboard and base station, and you can also buy a siren. In addition, you can subscribe to a monitoring service. When you leave the house or go to bed, you can turn on the system. If someone is traveling a sensor, the siren is heard, and if you have surveillance service, they will call you and the police. The idea is to be a theft deterrent and fail to protect you and your family.

      Frankigt does not offer Wyze Sense anything. You do not arm the system, Wyze offers no surveillance, and you notice that the company never calls this a security system. It is a sensor system.

      You should get the system if you want to know about the coming and the time in your home. When the family arrives, when guests arrive, and if you are willing to do so to call the police for a thief breaks in your house in the middle of the day. You should look at something else if you want a complete security system.

      A sensor system that could not be easier to set up

        Wyze Cam with a bridge connected to a back.
      The bridge fits in with the back of the Wyze Cam. Josh Hendrickson

      Getting started with Wyze Sense is a simple process. First, plug in the bridge at the back of one of your Wyze cameras (it doesn't matter which one). Then attach your contactors and motion sensors to the spots you want to monitor, they all have double-sided tape.

      When you are satisfied with the placement, open the Wyze App and press the plus symbol to add a new product, then select a sensor. The starter kit came with a tool that looks like a sim card ejector, when prompted to push it into the small hole and hold it until you see three red flashes on the sensor. You hear your camera saying that mating is complete and you can move on to the next sensor. I stopped pairing all three sensors for about five or six minutes.

      Instant Notification, Enhanced Video Frequencies

        Wyze app shows installations and messages.
      You can see a history of sensor data and view any related videos from the App.

      In our Wyze Cam pan review, we noted that sometimes Wyze notifications may be frustratingly slow. Sometimes, the app will alert you to detection movement immediately, and sometimes it may be ten minutes late. I am grateful to say that the sensor does not suffer from this issue.

      At the moment I have a contact person on my front door and back door, and the motion detector in the garage (where I do not have a camera) pointed right at the garage door. When one of the doors is opened, I get a notification on my phone almost immediately. I have added options to monitor that the person who opens the door also closes it. When someone closes the door, I get that notification, and if it is open, I also warn about it.

      Here is the kicker. Right now I have a camera pointed out my front window and another camera pointed to my front door. When someone passes through the window on the way to my front door, the camera should discover that movement and send me video. Then when someone opens the door and travels the sensor, it tells the other camera to record and send the video to me.

      On average, the app informs me of the open door and related video before telling about the person passing through the window. While it's not good for camera-based motion detection, it's great for sensor speeds. Unfortunately, the sensors are not weather-resistant, and the motion sensor uses infrared which means that it does not work through glass. I can't use the sensors to improve my front window camera performance.

      A drawback is dependent on app notifications. Have you left your phone in another room? You will miss any notifications. Do you not interfere with your phone, especially overnight? Do not disturb prevented fast sensor conditions. Again, this is not a security system. The first night I tested the sensors, I thought something didn't work until I realized I didn't interfere with the settings had kicked in.

      The app provides more useful information, wherever I go

      The SimpliSafe Contact Top is significantly larger than the Wyze Sensor equivalent below it. Josh Hendrickson

      My house has a SimpliSafe system, and an advantage of it is the chime it does when someone opens a door. But it doesn't tell me who just went in, or what door they went in through. I work from home, so I don't always want to go up to investigate and interrupt my workflow, but I feel that I should. That's if I heard chime at all. If I have music or I'm on another floor, I will miss chime; it's pretty quiet. And if I'm the business or gymnastics, none of it does many good because I don't pay for surveillance.

      With Wyze app notifications, as long as I have my phone or tablet with me, I always know what's going on. The Wyze app indicates "the door opened" or "the back door opened" (or whatever I have called the sensors) and sends me a video when I have activated that link. I can easily see what happens in my office, another floor, or when I have left the house completely. It is extremely convenient and something that my security system does not provide.

      The best part is about Wyze Sense, I don't have to remember to arm the system. Unfortunately, my family is horrible about renovation, and often when I come home to an empty house, I find an unattended security system. No matter how good your security system is, the weakest point is always the family that arms it. So even though Wyze Sense is not a real security system, a strong sales point is that you can always leave it.

      Currently, you can't shut it down, but Wyze announced it would introduce this ability in the future.

      The only question is the Wyze Sense box next to a quarter, showing how small it is. ” width=”1600″ height=”900″ src=”/pagespeed_static/1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif” onload=”pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);” onerror=”this.onerror=null;pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);”/>
      Even the package is small. Josh Hendrickson

      If you own a Wyze camera and you are interested in a home sensor system, I have to recommend this system wholeheartedly. As long as you don't want supervised security, it works too well for such a small cost to say anything else. But there is a painful unanswered question: how much does additional sensors cost? Wyze said that they are planning to sell an additional package with three contact persons and an operating sensor, but they did not specify the price. Considering that a starter package already costs $ 20, I am looking for a price in that area.

      Each bridge can handle up to 100 sensors, so you probably don't have to buy additional starter packs. In the rare case that you need more sensors, several bridges (connected to multiple cameras) will work together.

      At this time, I plan to download additional sensors so that I can add one to my mailbox. The idea of ​​actually knowing when the entry (and perhaps a package) arrives is tantalizing.

      I haven't taken down my SimpliSafe system yet, but I'm thinking about it. Right now, it serves the same function as the Wyze Sense system, considering how often we forget to put it on. The only thing we would miss is chime from the base station, which is a function even though the dog has learned to love. If Wyze introduces an update to add a clock to the cameras, then it may be the day we take down SimpliSafe.

      Meanwhile, I also do not include the Wyze sensors. And if you get one, you will probably feel the same way.
