Between package thieves, door-to-door scammers, would-be intruders and noisy raccoons that can give you a fright when you're home alone, a smart security system can be a good addition to keep you safe and relaxed at home. Not all systems record as well at night as they do during the day, though, which is when most of us want a clear view of our doors. Lucky for us, one of the best security cameras on the market works any time of the day, and it's currently discounted at Amazon.
Amazon's top-selling Wyze Cam v3/ Wyze Spotlight bundle is just $51 (down from $53). In addition to a high-definition 1080p Wyze camera, you'll get a motion-activated Wyze Spotlight. Shoppers say it's easy to set up and works beautifully.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
The Wyze Cam v3 has all the features you need in a security camera. The camera records video in full vivid color, day or night, thanks to its special sensor. Plus it works indoors or outdoors, even in inclement weather.
The smart security features automatically turn on when the camera detects movement or sound. It can start recording at that point, and can even send an alert to your phone. The sensitivity can be adjusted, so you don’t get an alert every time the dog walks through the living room.
A five-star reviewer said, "The camera is awesome...10 stars. You will not be disappointed. The cameras' night abilities are unmatched; my night video looks like daytime."
The spotlight turns on automatically when motion is detected — you can also control it via app or by hand. Because the Wyze Cam v3 features two-way audio, you can speak with anyone who shows up at your front door. A siren feature can be deployed to scare off unwanted guests, from raccoons to porch pirates.
A MicroSD card slot allows you to record continuous 24/7 video. The system is compatible with a wide variety of apps and devices, so you'll be able to access your feed from anywhere.
Another reviewer declared: "Phenomenal! Works wonderful, I can leave my babysitter with my children and still be able to see what's going on. I can talk through the camera, which is so great. The picture quality is extremely clear. I'm very happy with this purchase, and I've already recommended it to friends."
