Wyze’s new DIY home security system is dirt cheap

Simplisafe, Abode, and ADT better watch out. Wyze, the company best known for its dirt-cheap home security cameras, is now entering the DIY home security market with the Wyze Home Monitoring kit. Available for preorder today and shipping in March, the company will offer the base hardware for free is you sign up for professional monitoring, which itself is just $60 per year.

In some ways, the Wyze Home Monitoring kit is the most logical extension of its original product. Since the launch of the $20 Wyze Cam, the company has since expanded to smart watches, robot vacuums, headphones, and more. Yet, its camera — one of the best home security cameras — remains the centerpiece of its portfolio.
