Camera Disruptor Wyze Enters Sensor / Security Market

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Mar 28, 2019

Wyze, the company that has disrupted consumer IP cameras, combining American marketing and Chinese manufacturer, has just announced its expansion into the sensor / security market.

This comes shortly after the company announced $20 million in VC funding and selling more than 1 million cameras in their first year.

Can Wyze make an impact in the low-end consumer market with $20 sensor kits just like it did with $20 cameras?

Inside this note, we examine Wyze's new offering and how it contrasts to other DIY offerings such as Ring, Simplisafe, and Nest.
