Make your home safer with a small, affordable home security camera, like this Digoo Lens Home Security Camera, which is currently 50 percent off on Amazon. Easy to install, it allows you to keep an eye on your home even when you’re not there.

The Digoo Lens Home Security Camera records and plays back footage using either a microSD Card or ONVIF upload. Because it supports ONVIF and RTSP, the Digoo camera can not only be an amateur gadget for personal use, but also a professional device for a surveillance system that supports ONVIF.

The camera supports up to 64GB microSD cards with FAT32 format, and allows you to seamlessly stream video and two-way audio directly to your smartphone, tablet, Apple Mac or Windows PC. A wide 115-degree viewing angle gives you a remarkable field of view, while the intelligent digital zoom and 10 IR LED night vision (up to 32 feet) helps you capture the best footage no matter the time of day or distance from your main subject.

Motion detection and intelligent alerts deliver real-time push notifications of captured images to smartphones while you’re away. The camera is designed with security at the forefront and requires a password to access it. Simply download and install the DigooEye app and register an account. From there, you can configure your home Wi-Fi name and password for the camera through your phone.

The Digoo Lens Home Security Camera normally retails for $60 but is currently marked down to $30 on Amazon, providing a $30 (50 percent) discount.

Do more than just get alerts to your phone when your home is in potential jeopardy with an intruder-deterring siren, such as this D-Link Wi-Fi Siren, which is currently 18 percent off on Amazon. The smart device works with your water sensor, motion sensor, and other devices to trigger a siren based on leak or motion detection.

As a smart device, the D-Link Wi-Fi Siren can be fully customized to your needs and preferences. Set up your own custom rules, and play a different sound for each rule. There six sounds to choose from. To get the most use of the device, pair the Wi-Fi Siren with your Wi-Fi Motion Sensor and get alerted to movement near doorways, windows, and other sensitive areas, or pair it with your Wi-Fi water sensor to detect leaks from washing machines and water heaters before they do damage.

The Wi-Fi siren easily connects to your Wi-Fi network, with no additional hub required. With IFTTT support, it’s easy to pair your devices with other IFTTT-enabled products and apps to fully customize your smart home.

The D-Link Wi-Fi Siren normally retails for $49 but is currently discounted to $40 on Amazon, saving you $9 (18 percent).
