The original giant killer in the smart home camera space, the WyzeCam (v1), is saying goodbye just before its fifth birthday. The company has officially emailed its customers this week to say it will no longer sell or support its original product, as the camera can’t support a necessary security update.
While the WyzeCam will continue to work, Wyze warns in the email that it will no longer actively monitor or patch new security vulnerabilities for the device and that “your continued use of the WyzeCam after February 1, 2022, carries increased risk, is discouraged by Wyze, and is entirely at your own risk.”
Wyze included a link to a $3 coupon toward the purchase of a new Wyze Cam in the email. It currently offers five different models on its online store, with the flagship model, the Wyze Cam v3, costing $36.
