Home Depot has something similar for like 10 bucks. I'd be careful with this solution, especially if you are going to use this with traditional flood lights.

I tried it for my Wyze cam but it didn't worth because my flood lights are motion activated. There was power only when motion was detected, even if the light switch was turned on always. The internal mechanism of the flood lights essentially didn't provide power to the socket unless it detected motion.

Can always buy the generic wall outlet adapter.

I'm surprise Wyze made a pretty nice advertising video considering months back they were acting like they were financially struggling and getting people downgraded to still image monitoring, wyze cam lite, or upgraded to wyze cam plus subscriptions.

You have to connect it directly with an wire? People can just steal the cam and light bulb so it's kinda bad idea....if it's wireless activated may be better. You can keep the camera inside the home.

This is what you need for people who don't use wyze. It has usb for power and just use a high quality outdoor smart bulb for turning off the bulb. Easy. I use it and works perfect!
How long have you had it? It doesn't look like it was designed for outdoor use nor does it have an IP rating at all.

Generic bulb adapter with a small cubic charger that came with iPhones or blackberries and a smart bulb. My setup.

no offence, but still looks bad for such a pricey adapter

It's not just an adapter, it also allows the socket to trigger the light on with motion or makes your bulb "smarter" via your Wyze v3. Can also schedule like a regular smart bulb.

In my case I'm using a 1500 lumens output bulb, there are no other smart bulbs with that type of output.

I got this for my dad's place and it's been working pretty great. Here's what the options look like:

3 years, works perfectly fine outdoors in -40 winters. It's in my lamp so it doesn't get wet so IP rating is not important
