BGR Deals readers have come to know the brand Wyze quite well over the past few years, and its claim to fame is the $26 Wyze Cam home security camera that has been purchased by millions upon millions of people. This great little wireless home camera has all the main features you’ll find in comparable cameras, but for literally less than half the price. Now, in addition to its super-popular cameras, the company has entered the smart lighting space with Wyze Bulbs.
These are beautiful and bright smart LED light bulbs that support Alexa, Google Assistant, and more. And as you might expect from Wyze, they’re priced very competitively at just over $9 each.
Unless this is your first time reading our site, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the Wyze Cam before. This great gadget packs nearly all the same features you might find in a $100 home security camera, but it only costs $26. That’s a big part of the reason why it has about 78,000 5-star ratings on Amazon, and why people keep coming back for more.
There’s also a hot new model called the Wyze Cam v3 with awesome new features like color night vision, and it’s on sale right now for just $29.98 at Amazon. But Wyze isn’t just a camera company anymore. Now, Wyze has used the same formula to set its sights on the smart lighting market.
Wyze Bulbs are LED smart light bulbs that offer many of the same features you would find in a bulb from a leading brand that costs $20 or $25. You get a nice bright 800-lumen bulb with adjustable color temperature, Alexa support, Google Assistant support, and more. You won’t need a hub to use these smart bulbs since they connect directly to your home Wi-Fi network, so that’s an added bonus. But the best part is the price tag, as you might have surmised.
You can pick up Wyze Bulbs bulbs for around $15 each at Amazon, but who uses just one smart light bulb? Definitely pick up a 4-pack instead so you can cut your cost per bulb to just over $9!
