Best Home Security Cameras

If you’re looking for peace of mind, the best home security cameras can provide it by monitoring your home inside and outside, day and night. These cameras can all record video and stream it live to your phone or tablet when they detect motion, whether it’s an intruder or your pet walking around. In addition, the best home security cameras can incorporate two-way audio, security lights, and other features that allow you to do more than just see what’s going on.

Best Home Security Cameras

The best home security cameras range in price from $20 to over $500, and many charge additional monthly fees for items such as cloud storage and other features. That’s why we’ve tested dozens of home security cameras and evaluated them based on their ease of use, features, and image quality to list the ones we think are the best.

If you want a reliable home security camera for indoors and outdoors, you can’t beat the Arlo Pro 2. This 1080p camera has a wide field of view of 130 degrees, night vision, and much more. It can be plugged in or run on battery power and can last up to six months without needing to be recharged. It is equipped with a microphone and speaker, allowing you to talk to the person you see in front of the camera.

You’ll also benefit from Arlo’s generous subscription plan, which gives you seven days of free footage even if you lose certain features, such as custom motion zones. Subscriptions start as low as $3 per month for a single camera and also give you 30 days of cloud storage.

Don’t be fooled by the low price; the Wyze Cam 1080p is the best home security camera for those on a limited budget. As the name implies, it can record video at 1080p resolution, and while the quality isn’t as good as the Arlo Q, it’s still sharp enough to see who’s out there. There is no subscription service, but the Wyze Cam 1080p does come with two weeks of free cloud storage – although clips are limited to 14 seconds – as well as a microSD card slot that you can use to enable continuous recording and create an accelerated video. With an add-on module, you can connect this camera to Wyze motion sensors and smart lights, as well as third-party smart devices with Alexa and Google Assistant. Overall, this is one of the best home security cameras right now.

All-new Blink Outdoor – wireless, weather-resistant HD security camera with two-year battery...

& Free shipping
Last update was on: 2020-10-25 12:00 am

The Blink Outdoor is one of the best home security cameras for those looking for a truly wireless option for less than $100. The camera runs on two AA batteries (which should last up to two years) and communicates wirelessly with a small base station that is connected to your Wi-Fi network. The Blink Outdoor housing is weatherproof, so you can stick it indoors or outdoors, and it comes with a convenient mounting bracket. Although it’s not top-of-the-line, the 1080p video is a good choice for the price.

Although it doesn’t have free cloud storage like the old Blink XT2, you can record videos locally on a USB stick. Cloud storage starts at $3 per month or $30 per year. Since Blink (and Ring) are owned by Amazon, the Blink application is also connected to Ring’s Neighbors application, which allows you to view a stream of other incidents in your neighborhood and post videos from your Blink camera. The Blink application is fairly robust, and while it doesn’t have all the functionality of Arlo’s cameras, this under $100 application offers many features for the price.

Arlo VMS5240 Ultra - 4K UHD Wire-Free Security 2 Camera System

& Free shipping
Last update was on: 2020-10-25 12:00 am
$552.01 $599.99

Not only do the Arlo Ultra’s 4K cameras offer the best home security video, but they also use this extra resolution to allow digital tracking and zooming, making it easy to track and identify a person as they move through the frame. A built-in projector also allows for color recording at night, and it has two microphones for better sound. But all of this will cost you a lot of money: A single-camera (with the hub) costs $399, and additional cameras $299 each.

The Arlo Ultra doesn’t come with a free level of cloud storage, so you need to spend at least $3 per month if you want to record video. And if you want to record 4,000 videos, you need to spend an additional $1.99 per camera per month, on top of the monthly plan, which is waived in the first year. But if you want the best in video quality, the Arlo Ultra is for you. Overall, this is one of the best home security cameras right now.

$107.99 $149.99

With its top-notch video quality, excellent motion detection, flexible programming, and intuitive user interface, the Arlo Q would be a contender for the title of Best Home Security Camera, even without its very generous Basic Cloud Subscription Plan, which entitles you to a week of free recordings. The Arlo Q is square in shape, needs to be plugged into a power outlet, and is not waterproof, but it is the best camera to monitor the inside of your home or apartment.

If you would like to record video over a longer period of time and benefit from additional features, such as customizable motion zones, then you will need to purchase one of Arlo’s cloud storage plans, which start at $3 per month for a single camera, or $10 per month for up to five cameras, and entitles you to 30 days of cloud storage. Overall, this is one of the best home security cameras right now.

The Deep Sentinel is unlike any other home security camera. Indeed, when the camera spots an intruder, it sends a live stream to a monitoring station, where a professional can trigger an alarm on the camera, shout a warning and, if necessary, contact the police. All this has a price: In addition to the cost of the cameras ($499 for three cameras), you also have to pay a monthly fee of $50. In addition, the resolution of the video reaches its maximum at 480p, because it favors the fluidity of the video stream over its definition.

You could spend a similar amount on the best home security system, but they don’t monitor your cameras as proactively as Deep Sentinel does. However, they are the best home security cameras if you are looking for active surveillance.

Last update was on: 2020-10-25 12:00 am

The Nest Cam Indoor is the third generation of the famous Dropcam – one of the first and best home security cameras – and improves the video quality of its predecessors up to 1080p. It is easy to install and, thanks to its magnetic swivel base, it can be installed almost anywhere indoors. The video is sharp, the night vision is clear, the camera can be used as an intercom and it interacts with the Nest Protect nest thermostat and smoke detector, as well as with many third-party intelligent home security devices. But to really use the camera’s features, you’ll need to pay $10 or more per month for the Nest Aware program, which gives you access to cloud storage, people detection, and customizable activity zones.

Last update was on: 2020-10-25 12:00 am

The Ring Floodlight Camera combines two essential features in one: A home security camera and a motion activated projector. When the Floodlight camera detects motion, it turns on its two powerful LED beams and its highly accurate 1080p camera and starts recording. The Floodlight camera is also equipped with a loudspeaker, which allows you to talk to the person in front of the camera and hear their responses.

The Ring application offers a variety of settings, such as custom motion zones, programming, and more. Add to this Ring’s Neighborhood Watch feature, which allows you to see what’s going on in your neighborhood with other Ring users, as well as local police and firefighters. (You can also post your own videos on the Neighborhood application). Unfortunately, to record and share videos, you need to subscribe to Ring’s online storage plans, which start at $3 per month. Overall, this is one of the best home security cameras right now.

Google Nest Cam Outdoor 2-Pack - Weatherproof Outdoor Camera for Home Security...

& Free shipping
Last update was on: 2020-10-25 12:00 am

The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is one of the most expensive security cameras on the market, but it’s also one of the smartest. This weatherproof residential security camera has a tamper-proof design, a triple microphone array, and HDR support for better quality video than other cameras. It must be plugged into work – no battery option here, sorry – but the camera comes with a 25-foot power cord, which should make installation easier.

The Nest Cam has an 8 megapixel (4K) 1/2.5-inch CMOS sensor and a 130-degree wide-angle glass lens; although it captures 4K, it only provides 1080p, which gives much more detailed images than with a 1080p sensor. In addition, the Nest Cam’s AI can distinguish between people and animals, and can even recognize individual faces. However, many features are only available with a Nest Aware subscription, which starts at $10/month, or $100/year. Overall, this is one of the best home security cameras right now.

Image quality is a fairly important issue for an outdoor security camera. Granular and mutilated images defeat the purpose of capturing a potential intruder for the camera. You can’t catch the bad guy if you can’t see what he looks like. That’s why I chose Amcrest ProHD Outdoor as the best choice for an outdoor camera. It has an HD resolution of 1296p, while most competitors have a maximum of 1080p. In addition to very high resolution, its 98-foot night vision range, mobile access to live and recorded video, and motion detection make the Amcrest ProHD hard to beat.
