Costco has 100w equivalent 4 pack for $15
I've been able to find (YMMV) 100W equivalent non-smart, non-dimmable LED bulbs at Dollar Tree. I don't expect them to last as long as some of the name brand -- but what do you expect for $1.

Indeed, slickdeals is a wanky site flag-wise. Look above at my real world experience, fact-based constructive comment... 2-down thumbs so far. And the experience is confirmed if you go to the Wyze forums. If you're going to down-thumb a comment, have the b@lls to justify the rating if the reason is not self-evident.
Use the classic site. I do not get why the added the thumbs up/down thing.

If you're a home automation enthusiast like myself then you will want to stay away from wyze products. There is no proper API for hooking the products into a proper home automation system.

The window/door sensors will completely stop working when the battery dies.

The motion sensors will fall off and stop being detected by the wyze bridge.

The cameras will stop working from time to time and the RTSP firmware works like crap and stops broadcasting all the time.

I just recently got the wyze scale as a birthday present from a friend and the weight varies wildly. The scale shows a 20-30 lbs difference every time you step on it. 1 minute your 170lbs then 5 seconds later you're up to 200lbs.

If you look in the wyze forums for feature requests API access has been voted up through the roof for years with no attention.

I've heard multiple people in the home assistant subreddit complain about how horrible their customer service is.

Wyze is trying to be the (apple) of home automation by locking customers into their horrible software and cloud systems.

If you want an alternative look to zigbee stuff like aqara for your motion detectors and window/door sensors.

If you want cameras for home automation uses check out eufy cams.

The aqara sensors are at most $2 more than the wyze sensors but far more reliable And can be used across many different systems without the cloud BS involved.

I like Wyze products but will never recommend their smart bulbs. I (and many others) have had multiple bulbs lose their ability to be controlled remotely. While their support was always good about sending a replacement, I don't care to go through a support session and swap bulbs on a regular basis.

My only other complaint is the v2 cam glitches out during power outages and has to be manually unplugged and plugged in. Not ideal for when you are on vacation. However, I have multiple cams that have lasted multiple years with no major issues.

Yup. Good deal for someone just started to get into smart homes. What I actually hate is that these bulb are the 60w equivalent version of a regular bulbs.

I can't find a smart bulb that's 100W equivalent for some reason.
Feit electric that is sold at Costco and Lowe's have 100W equilivent color changing smart bulbs. I have them for every bulb including my outside light in WI. This will be the 2nd winter outside for it. They're still running strong.

still you have to take into consideration that you can control the output on the bulbs since they are dimmable and can be remotely turned off at any given time vs lower less bright wattage that is limited to a locked in set of watts effectively having your cake and eating it.

Quote from Smokeysgrowl :
I can't stand dim light. LEDs are letting me down as a whole. I think I'm going to go back to incandescent. Hey Hue, are you listening?
have no issues with any of my LED bulbs, have lasted me for years, my energy bill has gone down consistently, brightness all depends on the wattage and many higher wattages can produce nice and bright lit environments and still save me energy. But I really like the dimmable option because while my wife hates the dark I can rest peacefully not being blasted in the face by super bright bulbs...do a little more digging around you wl see that LEDs offer more than what you might think

My idea of smart is flipping a wall switch on or off when you need light or don't.

I need some 100w bulbs too!
What is this crazy talk. You really think we should get up and manually turn a light on or off? Crazy! Get out of here with your manual light switches! LMAO

I bought this kit a couple weeks ago at HD.

Like others, it's just OK. I find the camera and smart plug to be fine, but I hate, hate, hate the bulbs. As LED bulbs, they're fine, but as smart anything, completely worthless - 2 out of three connected once, they wanted a FW update, and now none of them do.

And that was spending probably a good 1-2 hours trying to get them to pair with the iOS app, and they're super finicky at frequency, only work @ 2.4 GHz. It would be nice to adjust the color temperature of the bulbs, and of course, the 'smart' functions, but for the time being, I'll use them as regular LED bulbs.

The camera has been fine so far, and I use the smart plug, connected to a Nest Mini that Google randomly sent me. I haven't tried the other sensors, as honestly, I don't know what I would use them for.

No problem at all wyze has really left a bitter taste I'm my mouth with their shenanigans. The more I can spread the word the more I'm hoping people stop buying the trash and they learn a lesson and start giving the people what they want.

Quote from SiennaFruit401 :
What protocol (z-wave, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc) does this kit use? Looks like WiFi to me but definitely could be wrong. Would these devices integrate with SmartThings? I couldn't find much on the Home Depot website on these topics.
Sense items like motion sensor and contact sensors are proprietary protocol and requires a bridge add on that connects to their camera. The plugs and bulbs are 2.4ghz wifi. No smartthings integration that I know of but wish there
was one.
