Roku has teamed up with Wyze Labs to sell its own line of smart home products, including security cameras, smart plugs, and smart lights. The company’s smart home products will be available at Walmart stores starting next week; it'll also be available on Roku’s and Walmart’s websites.
Roku’s smart home devices include a floodlight camera, indoor and outdoor cameras, a video doorbell, smart bulbs, smart light strips, and indoor and outdoor smart plugs. People will be able to access their camera feeds on Roku TVs and streaming devices, the company said.
Much like in the streaming space, Roku aims to compete with other smart home devices on price, with some of the cameras selling for around $27. The company apparently plans to make up for some of those low margins by selling related services, including a cloud storage service for its security cameras.
The impending launch of Roku’s smart home devices was first reported by Zatznotfunny.com this weekend. Protocol was first to report last year that Roku was looking to expand into the home. At the time, the company was looking both at making its own devices, as well as partnering with third-party manufacturers.
Roku's spokesperson declined to comment on the financial relationship between Wyze Labs and Roku.
