The Wyze Light Strip is one of two deals Wyze is offering.

Wyze

Disclaimer: We aren't recommending that consumers purchase Wyze products at this time. Over the past several years, Wyze has suffered from repeated data leaks and security breaches, including a 2019 user data leak, exposed databases in 2022, and exposed video files that same year. More recently, Wyze has seen both 2023 and 2024 security flaws that let at least 13,000 people see through other Wyze security cams owned by unrelated users.

Wyze's forum report on the latest breach includes an update from February 19, 2024: "Our engineering team has added a new layer of verification between users and event videos to prevent this from happening again. We've also removed the client library and will not be using caching until we can find a new client library and stress test it for extreme scenarios like we saw on Friday."

This response is a start, but Wyze has repeatedly struggled to reliably update its approach to security and meaningfully communicate with its users. While we have seen security companies bounce back from security problems in the past, we haven't seen this kind of improvement from Wyze yet. So we are not endorsing their products or any services where you need to create a Wyze account with your personal info. 

We'll keep you updated on Wyze's security and privacy if our recommendations change. If you're looking for security brands that have made notable security improvements or have good privacy track records, we can recommend products from Ring, Google's Nest, Blink, and Arlo.Wyze, the prolific smart home device and camera company, is running two deals on its smart lighting products. Buy a Wyze Bulb Color 4-pack and receive 40% off a second (a savings of about $16), or save $8 on a Wyze Bulb Color and Wyze Light Strip bundle.

Both the Color Bulb and Light Strip are part of Wyze's connected home range. Accessible within the Wyze app and via Alexa or Google Assistant, you can change the lights' brightness, color, warmth and schedule. Both can be set to a range of white light temperature settings and 16 million colors, according to the company. The Light Strip can be synced to the beat of your favorite music. Both products are covered by Wyze's 30-day, hassle-free return policy.

Wyze is well respected around these parts: The Wyze Bulb Color received a positive review, and CNET gave the original Wyze Bulb (without colors) an Editors' Choice award in 2019.

Take advantage of this deal and bask in your choice of 16 million colors.
