As fun as building your smart home is, buying all of the gear can be expensive. That's one reason Cyber Monday can be such a blessing as many of your favorite brands will slash their prices for a limited time ahead of the holidays, giving you chance to smarten up more areas of your home for less. One hidden cost with smart home tech, though, is the dreaded monthly subscription in order to use your devices to their fullest. This can quickly eat into any savings you made at the time of purchase. One line of smart home devices that doesn't require a monthly fee comes from Wyze. Its security cameras are super affordable, especially when on sale, and don't drain your bank account down the line either.

Wyze indoor cameras record video in 1080p HD and feature night vision, 2-way audio, Alexa support, and more. What's even better is that these cameras don't require a monthly subscription in order to get the most out of them.
The Wyze Cam Pan is a Wi-Fi indoor smart home camera that is down to $34.96 on Amazon. The camera normally sells for nearer $40. It records in 1080p and the night vision feature uses six infrared LEDs. The camera lens has a 110-degree field of view. You can pan 360 degrees horizontally and tilt 93 degrees vertically in less than three seconds. Though the discount is slight, the main benefit comes from the lack of subscription needed to save your recordings. You get 14 days of rolling cloud storage for free and you can expand the storage of the Wyze Cam with microSD cards up to 32GB like the Samsung Evo Select that only go for around $5.
The Wyze Cam and Wyze Sense Starter Kit is currently down to its best-ever price at $39.99. At $8 off, it's a super-affordable entry to smart home security. The compact wireless indoor camera also records in 1080p HD and allows you to view its livestream video feed using your smartphone. It offers night vision too and is compatible with Amazon Alexa so you can voice control it with a device like the Echo Dot. The included Wyze Sense kit includes two contact sensors for monitoring the opening of doors or windows as well as one motion sensor to place in your home. Each sensor lasts for a year on its replaceable battery and sends any data to your phone via the included Wyze hub.
