Though the company is based in Santa Monica, California, their cameras and products are assembled in China – it says so right on the box! It isn’t so much the fact that a product is made in China that can be of concern – it’s the quality control and monitoring of said assembly.
Is WYZE a safe company?
While we did discover security vulnerabilities in the Wyze and Guardzilla cameras, both have a number of other features that help them earn decent, and even fairly high, security scores in our tests. The Guardzilla camera earns Good ratings for data privacy and security, and the Wyze camera rates Very Good for both.
Where are WYZE products made?
Wyze is manufactured in China and it’s a cheap product, this is one of the reasons people have a concern about how secure the camera is and keep asking questions about the topic.
Who founded WYZE?
Each camera has its own secret key and certificate so that we can validate its identity during handshake. The contents are encrypted via AES 128-bit encryption to protect the security of the live stream and playback data.
Can Wyze cameras be hacked?
Yes, the Wyze Camera can be hacked and somebody can have access to the live video of your home or office. Keep in mind that the camera is not “unckeable” but there are ways to reduce the problem and increase the camera security.
