A Wyze Move

After raising $20m, Wyze Labs , the company on a mission to make smart home technology accessible to everyone, is introducing Wyze Sense – a security kit that includes contact and motion sensors.

The new kit can be paired with the Wyze Cam and comes with four components: the bridge, which plugs into the back of the Wyze Cam, two contact sensors and one motion sensor for the attractive price of $20. The motion sensor is designed to detect movement and the contact sensors are designed for things that open and close like doors and windows. When either activity occurs, the sensors trigger the Wyze Cam to start recording, or just send an alert to one’s phone. The bridge, which can manage up to 100 sensors, is powered by the Wyze Cam and the sensors run on replaceable button-cell batteries, which can last for 12 months.

Since launching in Oct. 2017, Wyze sold over 1.5m units of its first products, Wyze Cam and Wyze Cam Pan. Travelers, which launched a digital storefront on Amazon last year, offers the Wyze Cam via its Smart Kit, although the insurer doesn’t have a direct partnership with Wyze as the program is through Amazon.
