Wyze Launches a $40 Garage Door Controller With Camera

The bundle includes a Wyze Cam v3.

The Wyze Cam will let you check on your garage remotely through the app.

Wyze is launching a garage door controller in a $40 a bundle that will include the Wyze Cam v3 (normally $30 alone). Unlike other internet-connected garage door controllers -- most notably Chamberlain's $30 MyQ smart opener -- the controller won't use sensors to tell if your garage is open. Instead, it will use "AI vision-sensing technology" on the camera to tell if the garage door is open or shut.

The included camera is the Wyze Cam v3 -- the popular and well-reviewed smart camera Wyze released in 2020, which won CNET's Editors' Choice award. CNET reviewer Megan Wollerton commended the camera for its low price and high-value features. 

The Garage Door Controller is the latest device to launch in a barrage of new devices from Wyze, following a $155 gun safe and a $70 fingerprint deadbolt lock. But it also comes as Wyze grapples with a recent report that the company failed to alert users of a serious security flaw on its original Wyze Cam for three years -- a flaw that enabled unverified access to saved footage on the camera's SD card.

The Wyze Garage Door Controller is available to order now for $40.
