Wyze Cam V3 Review

The wyze V3 cam is one of those popular home security cameras known for two reasons. It works very well & is extremely affordable. With several improvements to previous generations, now you can install it outdoors too! That makes the biggest decision to choose it as a security camera, but is it as worthy as it seems?

Wyze Cam V3

Wyze Cam V3 is an impressive home security camera that you can grab for an extremely inexpensive price tag. Not only that, you can install additional add-ons to use it as a spotlight cam. So, is the Wyze Cam V3 a worthy spot cam? Let’s dive deep into it. 

Why It’s Called Spotlight?

Let’s start with, why is this compact security cam called a spotlight. Because, you can mount an additional spotlight at the top of the cam, and voila, it will turn into a reliable spot cam. Another interesting thing is, that it doesn’t cost a fortune. Besides, the V3 splashes enough brightness to light up the dark areas without burning image quality.

Form Factor

Like the previous model Wyze Cam V2, it is a straightforward cube that measures almost 2-inches on every side, and all the edges are curved now. There are more similarities here, such as the camera is black, features a telescoping mount, magnetic disk & much more. Well the analogy ends here, and because of water-resistancy (IP65) the V3 slightly looks different than V2. However, it looks fantastic after all.

Video & Audio Performance

While the camera’s resolution is the same as the previous gen, which is 1080p, it has a lower aperture, 180° wider field of view, improved night vision, higher frame rate & a big thumbs up to double the number of Infrared LEDs. In addition to that, this security camera has simultaneous two-way talk, and the brand-new speaker is louder enough to emit an 80-decibel siren. 

Unique App

Coming to the smartphone app. It’s as simple & straightforward as Wyze Cam V3 design. The primary screen showcases all the paired devices & a thumbnail of what the cam is seeing. Besides, you can do a lot of things like monitor, review, settings, and more from the app, making it a really helpful app.

Final Verdict

Undoubtedly, the wyze cam v3 offers a good number of features comparatively at a lower price tag. We are particularly impressed with the amazing color night vision; both its range and fidelity are top-notch. Plus, the all-weatherproof exterior with spotlight feature is the cherry on the sundae for every home.
