According to a Reddit user and a report from Zatz Not Funny, Roku appears to be expanding into the smart home space with smart bulbs, light strips, and security cameras.

The products appear to be white-labeled Wyze products, and it appears that the company is developing a Smart Home channel as well as a dedicated mobile app.

The images, which appear to have been taken from Walmart’s website, depict Roku white and colored smart bulbs, a Roku lightstrip, a Roku smart plug, indoor and outdoor security cameras, and a Roku panning camera.

They have the same appearance as Wyze’s Cam v3, Cam Pan V2, Bulb Color, and other products.

Roku’s TV and smartphone apps could allow users to view and control camera feeds, bulbs, smart plugs, and other devices.

There is no indication of pricing, but Wyze products such as the $34 Cam Pan V2 and the $23 Wyze Bulb Color are relatively inexpensive when compared to Nest or Philips, for example.

However, Wyze was recently chastised for failing to address known camera security flaws in a timely manner, and it suffered a data breach in December 2019 that exposed the data of 2.4 million customers to the world.

Roku is also adding a new, more affordable subwoofer to its lineup of wireless speakers. The Roku Wireless Bass Pro is $50 more expensive than the Roku Wireless Bass, which costs $130.

It is front-firing rather than downward-firing and has a single 5.25-inch subwoofer as opposed to the Pro’s 10-inch subwoofer. With approximately 120W of peak power as opposed to the Wireless Bass Pro’s 250W, the Wireless Bass also has less punch .
