The Wyze cam sound detector picked up a strong thunderstorm

TStormsDelrayBeachFL210712The downside of having self-monitored smarthome security cams, sound sensors, door triggers and motion detection at the Florida condo in Delray Beach is that one never knows what will set it off. Usually it has been a flash of light or in a couple cases a slightly weakened battery on a sensor.


Yesterday though, even though it was the middle of the day, a strong thunderstorm with an extremely loud clap of thunder set off the sound detector. When I reviewed the Wyze cam footage, wearing my Aftershokz Aeropex headset, I was amazed at just how loud the detected thunder was … and how bright the lightning was coming in the window. At least it is working. I also checked out the storms rolling in from the southeast (map right) just to be sure it was a storm on my Dark Sky Weather app – yes, strong bursts for sure.
