Wyze, manufacturer of some of our favorite smart home products from Wyze Outdoor Cam to Wyze Plugs and Sensors, is back with new products. Today, it unveiled the full details of a $ 30 wired video doorbell, along with initial details for a smart thermostat and a set of active noise-canceling headphones.
A really affordable video doorbell
When we said that Wyze is ready to run the smart home; we called out a video doorbell as a missing component of the final game. Now the Wyze Video Doorbell is here, and it’s much cheaper than we could have predicted. The 1080p video doorbell comes in at just $ 30, even if you need to work with the doorbell wires to install it in your home.
You get a surprisingly full set of features for your money, including a watch that you can connect to a nearby outlet. The video doorbell is recorded in a 3: 4 aspect ratio, so you do not handle headless videos; after all, people are taller than wide.
The doorbell also has microphones and speakers for two-way sound so you can talk to visitors even when you are not at home. Of course, you also get night vision, and Wyze Vidoe Doorbell will light a strong LED when someone approaches, which increases safety.
Like most doorbells, you get warnings when the doorbell notices movement, even if no one rings the doorbell. And you get 14 days of rolling cloud storage for free. If you subscribe to Cam Plus, you get full-length personal detection and motion recording.
If you have other Wyze products such as the company’s smart light bulbs, you can tie them together to turn on lights or perform other actions when someone approaches or rings the doorbell.
Wyze says you can pair the light bulb with an unlimited number of watches, even if the company has not announced watch prices yet.
You can pre-order the Wyze Video Doorbell today at the Wyze website for $ 30.
A smart thermostat that plans to learn
If heat and cold are more your thing, then the WyzeThermostat is just the ticket. With the smart thermostat you can create schedules to automatically turn up or down the air conditioning and heat all day. If you have forgotten to adjust the temperature before going to bed, you can remotely control the thermostat via the Wyze app.
And do not worry if you forgot to reject things before you left; Wyze Thermostat senses when you are not at home and adjusts accordingly. Wyze says they plan to add learning features along the way so Wyze can make decisions based on the changes you make.
Wyze did not announce pricing today, but plans to open pre-orders for its smart thermostat on October 6.
ANC headphones with Alexa on board
The latest new product from Wyze does not really fit into their usual smart home ambitions, but it is still exciting. The Wyze headphones give you Active Noise Canceling (ANC) in a wireless format thanks to Bluetooth 5.0.
38mm biocellulose membrane drivers drive these cans, along with a range of frequencies up to 30kHz, so they should sound great even when the world is buzzing around you. Wyze plans to update its app with an equalizer so you can adjust the sound to be perfect, whether you’re listening to classical music or hearing-crushing death metal.
Wyze also built Alexa into your headphones so you can control your smart home or set reminders without touching your phone. If you prefer another voice assistant, you can access it from your phone via the headphones.
While the company did not announce pricing today, it plans to open pre-orders for Wyze headphones on September 29.
