If you’re setting up a home security system, then cameras are almost certainly on your shopping list. The market is a minefield of cameras with functions that all appear similar and at wildly different costs. We recently reviewed the Wyze Cam V3 and V3 Pro cameras and found them to be excellent value offerings. The company has now released the Cam Pan V3 offering more coverage with a single device.

The Cam Pan V3 achieves this by being a pan and tilt camera sporting an auto-tracking feature, allowing a 360-degree field of view. There’s a huge feature set beyond just the pan and tilt capabilities including:

  • 1080p HD Colour Night Vision
  • IP65 weatherproof
  • Motion and sound detection notifications
  • Easy installation in a variety of positions, indoors or out

Clearly, a single camera that sweeps through an area is not as effective for full coverage as multiple, fixed cameras. Not everyone needs or wants a significant surveillance system presence in their home. The Pan Cam V3 is a happy middle ground, with consistent coverage across an area of your home following the DORI (Detection | Observation | Recognition | Identification) model we’ve previously detailed.

The features may not be at the bleeding edge of technology for DIY security, the price isn’t high either; keeping the Pan Cam V3 well entrenched in the value range. If you’re keen to get your hands on one, they’ll be available on the Global Wyze site or via the Amazon store for AU$ 69.95 per unit.
