Wyze makes some amazing low-cost smart home gear, includingthat’s a Cheapskate and CNET favorite. Deals are rare, unsurprisingly, because this stuff is already selling at razor-thin margins. That’s what makes this an unexpected and welcome surprise: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Home Depot has the . That’s $50 off the original price, about $40 less than buying everything separately and the lowest price I’ve seen. (Just a few weeks ago it was marked down to $69.)
Shipping is free, by the way, though you might also be able to pick it up immediately from your local Home Depot brick-and-mortar.
The starter pack includes a variety of items:
- The original Wyze Cam, a simple but effective security camera that supports two-way audio, night vision and more. It comes with a 32GB microSD card for local video storage, though you also get free cloud storage.
- Three Wyze Bulbs, all of them compatible with Alexa, Google and IFTTT. Read CNET’s to learn more.
- Two Wyze Plugs, basic smart plugs you can use with things like lamps and space heaters. Read CNET’s to learn more.
- The Wyze Sense kit, which consists of a module that plugs into the back of the camera, a motion sensor and and a pair of door and window sensors. Those last for up to a year on built-in batteries. Worth noting: Wyze proper is no longer selling this kit, as there’s apparently a newer version coming soon.
So, yeah, you get a little of everything. You can add more stuff piecemeal as needed; Wyze now offers more advanced cameras, including the Wyze Cam Pan for $30 and new for $50, a smart lock ($100) and more.
I’ve used many of the Wyze products; they all work really well, due in part to a great app that makes everything easy to manage. The Starter Pack was already a compelling deal at $79; now it’s a real standout.
