[Home Depot] Wyze cam v3 back in stock $43.98

Available at homedepot.ca and amazon.ca.
Run to get yours :) Those usually don’t last long in stock
Thread Summary
Here is some more info for those of you that are interested in Wyze V3 Cameras

- V3 has amazing night vision for this price point camera and beats out many others that cost more as well.
- V3 Officially supports 32GB MicroSD but people like myself are running this 128GB perfectly fine (Kingston / Sandisk Brands)
- Continious recording 24/7 with Event notifications [5 minute cool down between notifications if you do not have the paid CamPlus Subscription/ CamPlus has no gaps in notifications and no time limit either)
- You can run a cable up to 40feet, no problem, been tested and used by many of us. [Amaozn has plenty]


- MicroSD card continuously locally 24/7 in HD Quality:

16GB = 1-2 Days
32GB = 3-4 Days
64GB = 5-8 Days
128GB = up to 14 days

Some other FAQ:


Q: How long does it record each alert? How much can it record to cloud?

A: 12 seconds for the FREE tier, if you have CamPlus, then it will record full length, some of my events are like 1-2 minuets long on my camera I see. However since I do have a 128GB SD Card [32GB Officially supported], I can review the footage of that entire time frame if needed before during and after the alert.

Q: Can this send activity alert notifications to text or email for example, or just to their phone app? It sounds like there is like 10 sec. delay to receive the notification, and there is a 5-minute cooldown (only one notification every 5 minutes)?

A: No, it does not and will not send activity alerts through text or email, only through app, however you can share it with other family members so everyone can see alerts etc. There is a few second delay, I dont think its 10 seconds, I think its more like 2-5 seconds. As for events, if there are continuous events occurring, you will only get notification once every 5 minutes with the free tier. If you have CamPlus there is no delay/cool down period.

Q: How to mount?

A: You can mount it directly, the camera has a built in screw hole, and a screw is provided, I used that to mount it nicely above my front door, you can also put the screw under your soffit and hook the cam in, as long as the screw is close to surface, it will be nice and tight, won't go anywhere, I got all my cameras mounted like this. If you are at all paranoid about that screw not being enough, you can pickup one of many available mounts on Amazon, that screw into the bottom of the unit [no modifications needed] and may give you a better angle if needed. I like my cameras as close as possible to the wall/ceiling so that is why I never mounted it with a 3rd party mount.

Q: Will it be ok outside with -xx Temps?

A: Yes, this camera is designed for indoor AND outdoor use, up to -20 however based on my own experience, I don't think its going to have any issues with even colder weather as long as its mounted in a dry place and not directly exposed to elements. I have had the V2 mounted under my covered front porch and under soffit above garage for almost 2 years without any issues in South Western Ontario and it didn't skip a beat.

Q:Can you review the recordings through the app?

A: Yes, you can review the recordings through the iOS / Android app from anywhere, as long as the camera has connection to the internet and all without taking out the MicroSD card from the unit. You can also save clips etc right to your phone from the app.

Q: How does Continious recording work?

A: It will overwrite on the oldest content first, it's a loop and thats exactly how loops work, once SD card is full, it starts to write over the oldest content and so forth.

Q: Got multiple Wyze Cam's, whats the best app?

A: Wyze app!, Put them in a group [option available on the first tab, top left where you normally go to "ADD a Device" and you can view all at once instantly [they will all load together immediately and its much better than viewing 1 camera at a time]

yup HD has the official Canadian Wyze products (there is french on the boxes) Amazon just sneakily sells the US versions from their US warehouse.
HD also has 180 day return policy, so you have more time to evaluate the wyze eco system.

Looks like all the wyze products are in stock now, doorbell, outdoor, smart plugs etc.

get them now before the price increase:

Can these be mounted on a camera tripod? Or can you only screw them into something or use a sticky pad?

They have a 1/4-20 mount


“ 1/4"-20 Mounting

Like with the Wyze Cam Pan and Wyze Cam Outdoor, the Wyze Cam v3 has a `1/4"-20 threaded connection that you can use to mount the cam to any standard 1/4"-20 mount.

Out of the box, the 1/4"-20 threads are actually used to hold on the base of the cam, but the screw used to attach the base can be removed with a standard Philipps or flat head screwdriver.”

Warranty + 180 day return is a no brainer. Originally wanted 2 but since prices are going up I decided to get 3. The store also had 1 pack of smart plugs so added that to my cart too. Thanks OP!


I might try pointing the cams through the window from the inside, wonder if I will experience any glare or issues

I ordered one from amazon yesterday cause i had $5 promo but not getting warranty if needed is not good and that extra $5 might be worth it haha.

So is wyze not doing warranty if you buy from amazon/.?
