Oh my GOD Wyze… PLEASE integrate with google assistant rotuines ffs PLS
I am also waiting for floodlight/camera integration to replace my wired floods. I currently have regular floodlights on a smart switch, but would work soooo much better with motion detection/recording/lighting integrated into one system…that works with Google and Alexa for controls and routines.
Love my Wyze cams, hope to see flood light with cam combo soon:)
My old floodlight gave out so I couldn’t wait any longer for the Wyze solution. I found this floodlight that works with the Wyze cam v3. Seems like a a reasonable alternative, although admittedly imperfect. Install will happen next week, but have done an indoor install prep and everything seems to work.
Was just in Costco (my second home) and they have a full floodlight with 1080p camera and 128 GB SD storage for $79. I didn’t buy one. No person detection or cloud storage options as far as I could tell. It was supposedly $50 off but the price still seems a little high too.
See this thread about my experience with Wasserstein floodlights (I have two)
Their remote controlled model had issues. Their floodlights work with Arlo, Nest, and others just by having a different mount. The reviews for this model were mostly negative because the motion sensor would turn on the floodlight on a sunny day with no motion no matter what the remote was set to. At night, it was unpredictable. Finally Wasserstein agreed to exchange them with their non-remote model which has worked great.
Hopefully your app controlled floodlight has had more testing than their remote controlled model.
Just in case, keep the box. . “Veronica” in support has been very helpful.
My wife got me a membership at CostCo for my birthday right after they opened.
It’s one of my closest relationships and the beneficiary of the vast majority of my income.
I was thinking of getting the new socket gadget and using it on a flood light with an outdoor camera, but it occurred to me that, in order to power the camera, I would have to leave the light on all the time…
Maybe you can leave the light switch on but create a routine to only have light come on with motion or on a timed schedule.
I’m waiting on the real McCoy…
Home Depot again? Where was it in the store? With other outdoor lighting, or with other Wyze products?
I just saw this pic on my Facebook, thought id share since I’m looking for the same.
Interesting. Can you tell where the fb poster lives? (I’m not on fb so don’t know if that’s possible). I googled for it but all that returns is Wasserstein floods with built in accommodation for Wyze outdoor cam. A HD search sort of returns it, but clicking the link takes us to a ‘not found’ page.
Hey now. Cool find. Looks as if it requires a V3. I can’t seem to find the FCC page for it.
I already have floodlight with motion detectors that go off when the wind blows the trees and shrubs. I really hope they integrate the light with the AI features that I pay a premium for. I also hope these have a siren that works with HMS.
Are you sure you do? Because that would mean a 10-15 second delay (due to “cloud” processing) before the floodlight comes on as the prowler is moving.
Hopefully it would be shorter but still better then having to shut the camera and floodlight off on a windy day to keep from getting annoyed, which I have to do now, but at least I don’t have to shut the camera off now with it being separate.
While installing the first switch to control outdoor foods, I used a wyze camera to see the flood turn off as I was locating the right breaker. I was giving it about 15 seconds to see the light turn off. After trying every possible breaker, I started over with the obvious candidate. It turned out to be the right breaker, it just took 30 second lag to see it finally go off… just passing that along.
Curious that this isn’t on preorder yet… Wyze Is Prepping A Floodlight Camera
