I looked up some details on that “Neos Leak Sensor” and while reading the specs page for the Neos Leak Sensor, I saw this graphic:
(Seems the same bridge is used for motion and leak sensors, so Wyze should be able to use the same bridge for both too)
Those graphics look conspicuously more like a Wyze V2 (square) than they do Neos’ own “security” cam (cylindrical):
Makes me think that Neos just put a Xiaomi cam inside a cylindrical package…and that Wyze chose the Neos Leak Sensor because it’s predisposed to easily work with the V2 cams already.
(I just saw some reviews that showed some Neos Cams were identical to V2’s, at least in the past)
Seems like a decent sensor though, can detect a single drop, tell what the temperature and humidity are, 18 mo battery life, sound alarm, etc. For 3 sensors + a bridge they were charging £44.99, so about $53. I’d expect equivalent Wyze sensors would still be close to $5 each. I love that they can do a lot more than just leaks (temp/humidity too). Since it seems Wyze has already filed approval for these, I’m excited they appear to be coming up soon.
Some cool temp/humidity options:
Based on some devices they are working on (these temp/leak sensors, and the thermostat), I can see why they are thinking about their own heaters (not that I think they should do it). I mean, if you get the Wyze thermostat they’ve been working on:
and pair that with several of these Neos temp/humidity/leak sensors for each room, then it would track individual areas of the house and equalize the temp. (for example, my basement is always about 15 degrees cooler than the main floor despite having “central air” and us doing things like closing nearly all the vents on one floor, etc. Joys of an older house…).
It is exciting to see they’ve actually filed for these sensors! It didn’t take long to release WCO after filing, so maybe these are coming out soon too!
