The hardware is probably one of the first things you’ll look at when trying to figure out which IP camera might be best for your needs. When reviewing the 3 security camera models, they aren’t too many differences, except for a couple categories.


The ECO4LIFE 8C IP camera has the best lens when it comes to Wide Angle viewing. The new WYZE Cam V3 comes close at 130 degrees, but is still beat by the ECO4LIFE 8C.


The next category of comparison would be Night Vision. WYZE Cam V3 IP Camera has a slightly better night vision compared to its previous WYZE CAM V2. When comparing the Night Vision of the V3 and ECO4LIFE 8C, the only difference is the fact that the Wyze cam V3 can see in color vs. the Eco4life CAM being in black and white, which in most cases, should make too much difference.


One key category to pay attention to and that’s quite important for many consumers is the SD CARD support. This allows you to have consistent continuous recording and saved video for the Security camera footage - The WYZE CAM V2 and V3 only support up to 32GB SD card for on-board continuous recording, whereas the ECO4LIFE 8C, can support up to a 128GB SD card. This is also important for those consumers who may not want the CLOUD STORAGE. If you don’t want to worry about having a constant WIFI signal and peace of mind knowing your home is secured, local storage is an important feature – and the bigger the better.


The other categories listed are relatively all similar in features and specs, and you won’t find major noticeable differences – depending on your preferences, the cameras are very similar, but the 8C does have some stand out features compared to the WYZE CAM V3 and V2.
