The Wyze Home Security System is inexpensive and easy to set up. However, there’s no cellular backup, and it has limited compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant
When it comes to DIY home security systems, the Wyze Home Security System gets a lot right. It has easy-to-read instructions in the included user manual and — even more importantly — in the mobile app, and makes it a cinch to add components and automations to your system. But perhaps the most enticing aspect of this home monitoring system is the price—it’s among the most affordable DIY home monitoring systems on the market. However, it’s not very compatible with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
For this Wyze Home Security System review, I tested the Wyze Home Monitoring Bundle along with the Wyze Cam v3 ($29.98), which won one of our Tom’s Guide Awards 2021.
