Two of the unbelievably cheap Wyze Cam models are getting even more attractive, gaining support for Amazon’s Alexa platform starting Friday.
Specifically, the $20 Wyze Cam V2 and $30 Wyze Cam Pan will be accessible using voice commands.
Users will first need to update the firmware of their Wyze cameras through the Wyze mobile app, and then enable the new Wyze Skill in the Alexa app or the Alexa website. Once linked, users will be able to ask Alexa to view a livestream of the camera on an Echo Show, Echo Spot, or Fire TV.
