It can't be overstated that right now, the best way for us common folks to help combat the coronavirus is through a generous heaping of social distancing. As we keep ourselves at lots-more-than-arm's distance over the next few months, we'll need more and more ways to stay connected. One way to do that is with a smart display that you can use for video calling. Right now, you can grab an Echo Show 5 bundled with a Wyze indoor smart camera for $70.
The Echo Show 5 lets you chat with other Echo owners on the 5.5-inch display, as well as watch videos and TV shows. It's a great size for the kitchen or bedroom. If you need a refresher, you can read our review of the Echo Show 5.
The Wyze indoor smart camera, on the other hand, is a surprisingly effective $20 indoor security cam. It can livestream in 1080p resolution and automatically record short clips whenever it senses sound or motion in the immediate vicinity. For all the deets on this little camera, read the CNET review of the Wyze Smart Home Camera.
