  • Amazon is offering great deals on not two of the best options out there when it comes to home security cameras, the Wyze Cam and the YI Home Camera 3.
  • Both currently priced at around $24, the cameras offer features that match pricey high-end rivals at a small fraction of the cost.
  • At that price, you can buy eight of either one of these great home camera models and still spend less than you would on a single home security camera from some top brands.

It’s difficult to focus on anything other than the novel coronavirus outbreak right now, and that’s certainly understandable. It’s the most important thing happening in the world and it will continue to be for months and months to come. The United States now has more confirmed COVID-19 cases than any other country in the world and that’s in spite of the fact that only a fraction of people exhibiting symptoms can get tested since there’s still such a shortage on coronavirus tests. It’s bad and getting worse, but we also have to remember that life goes on and we have more than just the coronavirus to protect ourselves and our families from.

Amazon has two great deals right now on home security cameras that are just as good as a $200 Nest Cam for a tiny fraction of the price. The first is the Wyze Cam, which has all the main features you might want as well as 14 days of free cloud storage for between $24 and $26 per camera. The second one is on the Yi Home Camera 3, which costs about the same amount but has some more advanced features as well as a 6-month free trial of YI’s cloud service. On top of that, you can get a 10% discount if you buy two right now.

Based on today’s deals, the Yi model is definitely the way to go. On top of all the main features you’d get with the Wyze Cam, the YI Home Camera 3 also includes advanced AI features like person detection and even sound analytics. The downside is that you only get free 7-day cloud storage for 6 months, and after that you’ll have to subscribe to YI’s cloud service if you want to keep using the cloud. $24.49 for all those features is still a crazy price.

As for the Wyze Cam 1080p HD smart home camera, it’s always a great value and it comes with 14 days of free cloud storage for free. That’s not a limited-time trial, mind you — you’ll enjoy free cloud storage for as long as you own your cameras. As we also mentioned, Wyze cameras are still shipping out right away on Amazon despite the retailer’s shift in focus away from nonessentials. You’ll pay $25.98 for one camera or $21.33 if you by them in 2-packs, and they’ll be on your doorstep in just a few days.
