expiredA new Amazon low strikes Wyze Cam V2 with Sense Starter Kit, now $40 (Save 20%)

Amazon is offering the Wyze Cam V2 + Sense Starter Kit for $39.99 shipped. That’s $7 off the typical rate there and beats the lowest price we have tracked by $1. It just so happens that I just bought into the Wyze ecosystem and this full-blown kit is precisely why. Having recently purchased a second home, I wanted to always be able to keep an eye on it and be alerted if anything were to go wrong. I picked up several of these kits, each of which includes a camera, one motion and two window/door sensors. Going this route I was able to inexpensively arm all my doors and windows with sensors and strategically place security cameras to capture what happens if a sensor is unexpectedly tripped. I bought a microSD card for each camera, ensuring that any footage captured inside my home remains off the cloud completely private. Rated 4.3/5 stars. Learn more in our release coverage.
