Wyze Cam Pan, 360 Degrees of awesomeness for 30$

In this article, I will be reviewing the Wyze Cam Pan leaving with some pro’s and cons before you consider purchasing.

 

Wyze Cam Pan

The Wyze Cam Pan $29.99 on Wyze Site Click here to view. Pretty impressive camera packed with features. The Wyze Cam pan allowed me to have multiple printers printing and i am able to look at a live feed, zoom into one to printer and move pan and tilt the camera to look at another printer.  

 

Setup and Packaging

Wyze Cam Pan and included accessories

Wyze Cam Pan is Packaged very nicely. The Wyze Cam Pan comes with a USB cable and a power supply. Setup is a breeze. Download the app and create an account.  Then connect the power supply to the included USB cord. Now plug the other end into the Wyze Cam Pan. Wait a few seconds and let the Wyze camera boot up. 

In the Wyze app clicke the + sign in the upper right corner of the app. Next you are asked to remove the film from the lens. Now hold the setup button until the camera beeps and you hear “ready to connect”.  Next Select the SSID and password of the wireless network you want the Wyze Cam Pan to connect to. A QR code pops up on the screen. Hold your device withing 5 inches of the Camera’s lens until you hear “QR code scanned. If you do not hear this.  Wyze directs you to a Youtube page with a how to setup video for Camera. Now you should be up and running.

The wyze app is still in its early stage, but seams to work and flow pretty well. I do not care for the layout of the app. How the app shows a snapshot of the last picture that was viewed threw the camera. I would prefer a live feed right on the home screen of the app or a current snap shot.  

 

Crazy amount of features for under 30$

Live Feed on any Alexa with a Screen

Live Feed on any Alexa with a Screen

Wyze has generously packed the Wyze Cam Pan with a crazy amount of features for under 30$. Almost to much to list, so i will just touch on a few of them.  CLICK HERE TO SEE MORE FEATURES  Wyze Can Pan’s sound detection is extremely sensitive even on the lowest setting. Digital zoom up to 8x, and 360° horizontal view & 93° vertical view, 1 GHz CPU and 128 MB of on board memory, and a TF slot for local recording time laps, and motion detection, and sound detection.   

Works with Alexa, allowing you to view a live feed for up to 10 minutes on a Alexa device with a screen. The Wyze Cam Pan’s night vision is very clear. 6 infrared LEDs, enhanced night vision distinguishes 18 steps of gray and provides clear images up to 30 feet away. IFTT and push notifications.  One of my favorites is the Two way audio,  now i can yell at my cat to get away for my printers. 1080p at 15 frames a second is not amazingly high but it is more then enough to see what i need to see. If your are worried about data usage the Wyze Cam Pan uses about 4-7 megabytes a minute in 2080p 

Conclusion

Easy setup and low data usage are just a number of features that make the Wyze Cam Pan a great addition to your Hobby shop or as a simple security camera. The included 14 day rolling cloud storage is only another reason to think twice before buying another camera. Whether you use the Wyze Cam Pan to monitor your printer or to see the entire room. For 30$ US this is a great buy. The only cons i have; are the layout of the app and how the app shows a snapshot of the last picture that was viewed threw the camera instead of the most recent and the memory card is not included.
