2023 Review: Wyze Cam Floodlight Pro Examined

Cupertino, August 10, 2023

We gave the original Wyze Cam Floodlight a high rating for its affordable price, bright LEDs, and easy installation. However, we were disappointed that it didn't support voice control. Now, the company's $149.99 Cam Floodlight Pro addresses that shortcoming and introduces several improvements. The Floodlight Pro has a higher-resolution camera with a wider field of view and brighter illumination from three LED lights. While the price has increased, it still offers excellent value and has earned our Editors' Choice award for smart floodlight cameras.

If you're interested in a wireless model and/or one that supports Apple HomeKit, the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight Camera ($249.99) is a better option and another Editors' Choice winner.

The Cam Floodlight Pro measures 9.1 by 10.2 by 7.8 inches (HWD) and weighs 2.9 pounds. It is slightly larger and heavier than the original Cam Floodlight. It features three dimmable LED panels that emit a total brightness of 3,000 lumens and can provide up to 180 degrees of horizontal light coverage. The Floodlight Pro is designed to plug directly into a junction box and can be mounted on a wall or soffit. It comes with a round mounting plate, mounting screws, wire nuts, a tethered hook, a Philips screwdriver, and a simple user manual.

The Floodlight Pro includes a camera unit with a pivoting mounting arm that allows for optimal coverage. It has a speaker, a microphone, and a status LED that indicates the device's power status and connectivity. There is also a microSD card slot for local recordings, a loud 105 dB siren, a dual-band Wi-Fi radio, and a Bluetooth radio. Instead of a passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor, it uses built-in AI technology to trigger motion recording and alerts, as well as activate the lights. It offers smart detection features and a motion-activated voice alert.

The Floodlight Pro's camera is a significant upgrade over the original Wyze Cam Floodlight's camera. It captures 2.5K video at 20 fps, has a wide 180-degree field of view, and can capture color video at night using low-light gain. It also offers the option to configure infrared LEDs for black and white night video. The camera continuously records to the microSD card and can also be used with the Cam Plus subscription plan for cloud-based video history.

The Floodlight Pro supports voice commands from Alexa and Google Assistant, and it works with IFTTT for third-party smart home device integration. However, it doesn't support Apple HomeKit or Matter.

The Floodlight Pro uses the same mobile app as other Wyze devices. The app allows for live video streaming, accessing videos on the microSD card, controlling the lights, activating two-way talk, adjusting settings, and managing notifications.

Installation of the Floodlight Pro requires working with high voltage cables and should be done by a professional if you're not comfortable with it. Once installed, the pairing process is straightforward through the mobile app.

Overall, the Wyze Cam Floodlight Pro offers great performance and excellent value. It provides high-quality video, adjustable lighting, reliable motion detection, and convenient features.
