Wyze adds subscription service for Complete Motion Capture service

For less than $2 a month, Wyze will store full-length video clips in the cloud.

Wyze on Tuesday announced the company's first monthly subscription for its security cameras. Complete Motion Capture will record and store on the cloud a video clip from the duration of a motion event, instead of storing a 12-second clip every five minutes as is it currently does. 

The service is a monthly fee of $1.49 per camera, with the full-length motion clips stored by Wyze for 14 days. Pair the $1.49 subscription with the $20 Wyze Cam, and you have a really inexpensive home security camera to monitor your home.

Even if you paired it with the $30 Wyze Cam Pan, you're still saving a lot of money when compared to similar offerings from Nest or Ring. 

Wyze will still upload shorter and less frequent video clips for free. For someone who wants to have a backup of motion events (instead of relying on a microSD card), the monthly subscription makes a lot of sense. 

Users can sign up for the new subscription plan in the Wyze app, or by visiting the Wyze website.
