Have you seen the details of Black 3.0? It looks SO cool. Love the video, too.

NO! Thanks for the link!!! :smiley:

I just finished watching the video and it’s fantastic. I remember when the blackest black and pinkest pink both came out. I’m glad to hear that they’re still going strong! I also plan to get one of those watercolor pallets. :slight_smile:

Good question! While many of you want a Black option (which does look really cool!) white options historically sell better. Because we operate on a thin-margin/high-velocity business model we’ve had to focus on maximizing the White option, but we’re always listening to the community and working to deliver what you all ask for! Thanks for the comments & don’t forget to vote if you want black back!

Sort of insane not to offer it at least in white and black. Your white cams stick out like a sore thumb on my black building. I snapped up 2 of the black - perfect.

there is a gentleman on these forums that is actually making his own black vinyl wraps for the V2. I bought a few of them and I love them. I didn’t line up the corners perfectly, but they change the camera A LOT as far as visibility goes. and if you decided later down the road that the black isn’t good anymore, you could peel them. DM me and I could more than likely put you in touch with him.

Suspect this is a volume question. Big enough buy the cost differential goes away. Consider a black sleeve (see aerosol can labellers) I think a lot of the discussion here is a decor or easier to hide thing really.

Love to have a few in black… are they coming back? I’d even pay more for that

the closest you are going to get right now is a vinyl wrap you can put on the cam. I have done this to several of my cameras and I’m happy with the results. msg me if you would more information on this method. :slight_smile:

#62

I voted yes… sorry all the DYI solutions are crappy looking, the Wyze Black looked professional

#63

I must agree the color variety would likely boost the sales of product, not only for camera. Yes, extra production cost is another issue. How about Wyze come up with some livery kit to quench our thirst for now? If yes, please also make some digital camo, I will dress up all my V2 and Pan. :sunglasses:

#64

BTW, I did grab a couple of black V2 the day it released. It’s exclusive privilege for my man-cave. And I did feel special. :smirk:

Matte finish for any color or shade might be more discreet plus lower reflection if placed looking out a window. Function over “looks”. Was the limited edition black cam glossy or flat finish? If non-glossy it has my vote.

Maybe an option for the outdoor version of the Wyze Cam? The only color/shade would be a matte grey to black to maintain production cost. Guessing sales would come close to the v1 &2 model.

#66

Always wondered why there wasnt a black option and now I find out there was a special edition… OMG, bring it back!

#67

There is obviously a big market for the black version. While I understand that you are a small company, it is also true that small companies grow when people buy more of their products.

Also, instead of charging more for the black version why not just limit the amount ordered per household? That way you won’t have to worry about making large quantities.

I agree, but in case they don’t bring it back, these black covers work well…

Look forward to Black version, but i had to improvise to reduce window glare for mine, and i used some $8 Con-tact paper, it is the Black chalkboard version, so it is dull and eliminated all the reflection for the ones i have. takes a little bit to trim real nice, but works well for $8 and 6 cameras with more left to use.

Here was my solution for $6. The paint should peel off if you ever need to return the camera:
