Wyze makes some amazingly good 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 $20 off the regular price and the best deal I can recall seeing.
Shipping is free, by the way, though you might also be able to find it at your local Home Depot brick-and-mortar — assuming you’re willing to risk visiting a store.
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.
- 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/window sensors. Those last for up to a year on their built-in batteries.
So, yeah, you get a little of everything. You can add more stuff piecemeal as needed; Wyze now offers a more advanced camera (the Wyze Cam Pan, which sells for a measly $30), a smart lock ($100) and more.
I’ve used several 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 $99; for $20 less, it’s a steal.
