Over the past few months, Wyze has announced a slew of new offerings and services to better serve customers. Today, the company has officially entered the home security and monitoring space with the new Wyze Home Monitoring, a 24/7 professional monitoring service that costs only $5 per month.
Wyze Home Monitoring is powered by Noonlight. The service connects users to trained dispatchers in the event of an emergency and routes information to local 911 call centers so first responders receive the information they need. Wyze Home Monitoring also watches for other potential problems like water leaks and sudden swings in temperature.
Wyze has also launched new hardware to go along with the Wyze Home Monitoring service. The Wyze Sense v2 line includes new motion and entry sensors, a keypad for arming and disarming, and a hub to connect all of the devices together. The HMS hub includes a battery backup that allows it to continue functioning even in the event of a power outage.
The Wyze Home Monitoring system works in conjunction with Wyze’s $25 Wyze Home Camera. When an entry sensor or motion sensor is tripped, the Wyze Cams will automatically begin recording to monitor the situation. You can check in on your home at any time through the Wyze App to see what is happening inside your home.
The keypad allows you to arm and disarm your system, but you also have access from anywhere through the app. If a dog walker accidentally sets off your alarm, you can easily disarm it without giving out the code. The Wyze app will send a notification when motion is detected, as well as a daily summary of alerts to give you a brief overview of the activity in and around your home.
Wyze has built a reputation for producing quality products at an affordable price. As the company has expanded to include numerous security cameras, smart locks, video doorbells, and more, its influence in the home security sphere has grown. Now customers can build a whole-home security system at a fraction of the cost of higher-priced competitors.
The Wyze Home Monitoring service is available for pre-order beginning Tuesday, December 8, via Wyze’s website.
