- Google’s Nest Cam Indoor is one of the most popular wireless home security cameras on the market right now, but it’s also extremely expensive with its $200 price tag.
- Meanwhile, Amazon is currently running a sale on the top-rated Wyze Cam 1080p Home Camera that slashes the price to $46.95 for a 2-pack.
- That works out to just $23.30 per camera, which means you can buy eight Wyze Cams to cover your entire home and still have money left over compared to buying only one Nest Cam.

The Nest Cam was instrumental in creating and popularizing the wireless home security camera category. Of that, there is no question. As it did with its smart thermometers, Nest created a product that was wonderfully useful and remarkably easy to set up. Back then, the device’s $200 price tag might have been at least somewhat reasonable, since it was an emerging space and there wasn’t much competition. The problem now, however, is that there are plenty of other options out there that are just as good and they cost a small fraction of what Nest is charging.
A perfect example is the Wyze Cam 1080p HD Indoor Wireless Smart Home Camera, which is already a steal at $26 shipped. It has all the main features you could ask for such as 1080p resolution, night vision, motion detection, and two-way audio. Beyond that, however, it has another awesome feature you might not even think to ask for: 14 days of free cloud storage for your video recordings! $26 is beyond reasonable for this great camera, but you can buy a 2-pack right now on Amazon for just $46.36, which works out to $23.18 per camera. In other words, you can literally buy EIGHT Wyze Cams for less than you would spend on ONE Nest Cam.
Here’s a blurb from the Amazon page that has some more info:
Wyze Cam V2 delivers fast, clear, live stream footage direct to your smartphone via the Wyze app (iOS and Android), day or night. With motion and sound detection you can receive an alert anytime your Wyze Cam V2 detects sound and motion, and view up to 14 days of saved alert videos for free – no monthly fees or subscription required. Use the Wyze Cam v2’s new motion tagging feature to easily identify motion in both live stream and playback video modes. Plus, you can add an 8GB, 16GB or 32GB microSD card (sold separately) to enable continuous recording and schedule custom time-lapse videos, and use 2-way audio to talk and listen through your Wyze Cam V2. Use the Wyze app to manage and view multiple cameras, share your cameras with other users, view alert videos, and record and share photos and videos directly from the app. The Wyze Cam V2 must be powered to use (it does not have a battery) and is designed for indoor use (it is not weatherproof). Power Adapter Input – 110-240V (AC/DC). WiFi: 802.11 b/g/n 2.4GHz (Does not support 5GHz network) Supports WPA and WPA2 protocols
