How to choose a home security camera
When choosing the best home security camera for your needs, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the available features, but think about what’s most important to you. Field of view is one of the first things to check out — too narrow a field of view and you might find your camera doesn’t cover the area you’d expect — as is video quality, to ensure your recordings are crystal clear. But you’ll also want to decide whether you’d prefer a wired or wireless connection — and don’t forget, wired-in cameras without a battery won’t work if the power is out. If you’d like your cameras to integrate with other services like Google Assistant, Alexa, or Apple’s HomeKit, it’s worth bearing that in mind, and you’ll also want to check out whether the camera you choose comes with a subscription plan. With some home security systems, you’ll need to subscribe to access all the best features. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, ensure you check out the camera’s app to make sure it gets solid reviews. There’s nothing worse than picking up a great camera that’s let down by an app that’s constantly crashing or difficult to use.
The Arlo Pro 3 is one of the best home security cameras money can buy right now, even though it’s a bit more expensive than some competitors. You can choose from two or four cameras to suit your setup needs — and all cameras are fully weather-sealed, so they can be used indoors or out. Set up your system wired or wire-free and enjoy video resolution up to 2K and a 160-degree viewing angle, plus continuous recording to keep an eye on your home. For nighttime security — or outdoor parties — the Arlo Pro 3 Floodlight is an excellent option that adds a bright floodlight to the original camera configuration or select from the Arlo Pro 4 or Arlo Ultra 2, the newest options in Arlo’s home security lineup.
Don’t want to drop so much cash on a camera? We got you. There are plenty of more affordable options, like the Wyze Camera V3, one of our favorite budget cameras for home security. Its IP65 construction makes it ideal for outdoor use, and it even includes night vision.
If you’re after home security cameras that work with Alexa or Google Assistant, consider the Blink XT2 or the Google Nest Cam IQ Indoor. The Blink XT2 works indoors or out, and you can arm or disarm your system and view live streams straight from your smart TV or display. The Google Nest Cam IQ Indoor isn’t suitable for outdoor use. but as an indoor security camera, it boasts excellent image quality thanks to a 4K sensor that records dual 1080p frames simultaneously, combining them into one full HD video. This means it has a much greater dynamic range than most indoor security cameras, balancing the exposure between dark rooms and bright windows for clearer videos. Add a Nest Aware subscription and you’ll get person alerts, activity zones, the ability to create clips from your cloud videos, and 30 days of cloud video storage — so it’s easy to customize your camera to suit your needs.
Other alternatives to look out for this Cyber Week include the Logitech Circle View that’s designed to work exclusively with Apple’s HomeKit, and the Ring Spotlight Cam Solar, which works with both iOS and Android devices, as well as Mac and Windows PCs, and features built-in motion detectors that start recording automatically when they sense movement.
