Wyze Cam Floodlight uses two cameras for double the coverage

Smart cameras are excellent tools for outdoor security, but the simple addition of a floodlight can completely change the game. Not only does a floodlight illuminate the area and startle intruders, but they also draw attention from your neighbors. The new Wyze Came Floodlight leverages two cameras for double the coverage and double the protection. All total, it provides 2,600 lumens of LED lighting.

The Wyze Cam Floodlight uses three PIR sensors to provide up to 270 degrees of customizable detection. You can adjust the sensitivity of each of these sensors, turn them on and off individually, adjust the range, and more. The ability to tweak the sensors’ rate of response means you can avoid something like a passing car triggering the floodlight if you live close to a road.

The Wyze Cam Floodlight streams and records in 1080p and utilizes a Starlight Sensor for full-color night vision. You will be able to make out more details about all of the footage the camera captures, but if that isn’t enough, there’s an onboard USB plug for attaching another Wyze Cam v3 for even more coverage.

If someone comes onto your property that isn’t welcome there, you can startle them away with an ear-shattering 105-decibel siren. Between the siren and the bright lights, it will be a bit like sensory overload. The two-way audio functionality means you can also talk to visitors (or intruders) through the camera, adding your voice to the sound of the siren.

The Wyze Cam Floodlight boasts an IP65 weather rating. It will stand up to a dry, dusty day just as easily as it will a sudden downpour. All footage is saved to the cloud for 14 days with no subscription needed, and you can also add a microSD card for 24/7 rolling recording. Motion and sound events are saved in 12-second segments so that you can see what happened just before the camera went off, too.

The Wyze Cam Floodlight is now available for preorder from Wyze for $85 plus $15 shipping, so a total of $100 in all. These smart outdoor cameras are scheduled to begin shipping in December of this year.

While many users access Google Home on their smartphone or smart display, the platform is also available via web browser. The web-based Google Home experience wasn't exactly the best way to access your smart devices, but that's rapidly changing as Google rolls out new updates to the client -- the latest of which adds a ton of new ways to access your Nest Cams.

Google began rolling out the update late last week, and most users should now have access to the improved Google Home for web experience. The big draw is access to your Nest Cam history and the option to download clips.
