Roku Launches Smart Lighting And Other Smart Home Products

Roku has expanded into the smart home space with white and colored smart bulbs, a Roku lightstrip, Roku smart plug, Roku indoor and outdoor security cams, Roku home video doorbell & chime, and a Roku panning cam. The products look similar to the Wyze‘s Cam v3, Cam Pan V2, Bulb Color and other products. The products appear to be white-labeled Wyze products, and it looks like Roku is working on a Smart Home channel and dedicated mobile app.

With the TV and smartphone apps, Roku could let users show and control camera feeds, bulbs, smart plugs etc. However, Wyze was recently criticized for not addressing known camera security flaws in a timely manner, and suffered a December 2019 data breach that exposed the data of 2.4 million customers.

The new Roku smart home product line is selling on Walmart.com here.
