Wyze is a smart home camera manufacturer that espouses a low-profit-margin strategy designed to keep costs low without sacrificing quality. Its Cam Pan boasts 360° horizontal and 93° vertical coverage along with a 110° per second rotation speed, giving it the ability to take in a full-circle view in less than three seconds. Up to four custom way points can also be set within the camera's patrol route; motion within its field of view can be automatically detected, tagged and tracked in real time. Two-way audio is also supported. Additional camera specs include 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 120° wide-angle lens, 8x digital zoom and six infrared LEDs that distinguish 18 steps of gray to provide enhanced night vision.
