Wyze cam now in Canada

For all those looking to install Wyze security cams around their house, good news is that they are now officially available in Canada - at Petsmart. Yeah for some reason they are being marketed here as pet cameras. The not so good news is that the long awaited outdoor security cam is not at Petsmart. I wonder if that’s because an outdoor cam can not really be marketed as a pet cam. Or maybe because Wyze would like to satisfy the America demand first.

Of all the places I would never have thought that Petsmart would be selected as their Canadian launchpad.

Think of the Childre…
Why not? People can now monitor their pets. No other competition in Petsmart unlike BestBuy and other tech stores.

That is very true. But at the same time, Wyze cam is more well known as a security cam and a pet store would hardly be the place I would be searching for it. In any case as long as they launch all their products in Canada whether at Petsmart or wherever....

Is it an official Canadian launch or that store simply sell them on the "grey" market? They don't sell the sensors or any other components.

Amazon.ca (sold and shipped by) already sells some Wyze products.

That is a start but they are still working on an official launch in Canada, from their newsletter:
"P.S. Hey Canada! We're still working hard and making good progress on an offical Canada launch, but through Petsmart Wyze Cam is now in 100 stores up there."

Received this message today from Wyze:

Hey Canada! We’re still working hard and making good progress on an offical Canada launch, but through Petsmart Wyze Cam is now in 100 stores up there.

Edit: @JEDI Force I see that you beat me in posting the message.

Sweet. I don't think outdoor cams will come anytime soon to Canada. They have pre-orders now only in the US and they won't deliver until Oct it says.

I hope they have support for Canada though for the v2 regular ones.

Too funny. Although price could definitely be better. Hopefully this means warranty will be honoured now (although we've never had an issue with ours from Amazon Canada). Now to patiently wait for the outdoor cam arrival.

Price is the same as on Amazon... I bought a couple to put outside while waiting on outdoor cams. I had Nest at my old house but considering you had to both buy a wired cam at a premium and then pay them a monthly fee to store the video I'm never going back to Google.

You pay for what you get, and this just reflects the quality of the cameras.
