Best security camera deals: Ring, Arlo, Blink and more on sale

These are the best security camera deals available right now

If you’re worried about security around or in your home, then grabbing a home security camera is the way to go. Not only will it give you a general sense of relief knowing what’s going on while you’re away, but it can also act as a deterrent to any potential problems that may occur. And, if you have issues with pulling cables, then there are some great wireless security cameras out there for you to get your hands on. That’s why we’ve gone out and looked through all the best deals on the market right now and collected our favorite deals below. We’ve included offers from Arlo, Google, and Blink.

Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera — $59, was $130

The Arlo Essential Spotlight 4 outside in the elements.

The Arlo Essential Spotlight Camera is one of the better wireless cameras out there. Arlo is a brand that’s become a staple in home security cameras. The Essential Spotlight Camera is easy to install and take down for charging, and it offers the conveniences you’ll find in most wireless cameras. These include easy wireless connectivity to your home’s wifi network, which often needs to be done with a hub. This camera has connectivity built right in without the need for additional peripheral equipment. It has a motion sensor and an infrared mode for seeing at night. It has a two-way audio, which can be a good way to ward off intruders or talk with people making deliveries.

Blink 2 Outdoor — $126, was $180

The Blink 2 Outdoor security camera system is a step toward a more complete surveillance system. Two cameras are included here, with the Blink 2 Outdoor offering improvements over previous models. It offers long lasting battery life, with the ability to run up to two years on just two AA lithium batteries, which are included. You can set this system up to alert you on your phone when the motion detectors are triggered, and it also gives you the ability to customize motion detection zones within the Blink Home Monitor app. This package also includes one Sync Module 2, which allows you to connect up to 10 Blink cameras and save videos and photos from each.

Google Nest Indoor/Outdoor Cam — $140, was $180

The Google Nest Cam is a great, versatile option for home security cameras that can be used indoors or outdoors. It has a 130-degree view, which is pretty solid for a security camera, and the 1080p resolution should be more than enough to see things clearly. There is also a six-times zoom you can use, which might come in handy given that it has a roughly 25-foot detection distance for motion, while the night-vision LED will give you about 20 feet of night vision. This version comes with a battery, so you don’t have to worry about wiring it up, which is good because the charging cable it comes with is only three feet long, so you aren’t really going to be able to write it up full-time.

Google Nest Doorbell Wired (2nd gen) — $150, was $180

A man installs a wired model of the Google Nest Doorbell near his front door.

While everybody knows about the Ring Video Doorbell, the truth is that there are a lot of other great options out there if you don’t necessarily want to be in Amazon’s ecosystem. One great example is the second generation Google Nest Doorbell, which has a lot of great improvements on the previous generation, such as a continuous video feed, easier installation, and things of that nature, although some of them are locked behind a $12/month Nest Aware Plus membership, which is a shame. Besides those features, though, you get 960 x 1280 resolution with a 10-foot motion detection distance, as well as a  145-degree field of view.

Google Nest Cam with Floodlight — $220, was $280

The Google Nest Cam with Floodlight mounted on a house.

If you’re looking for something that is more specifically made for outdoors within the Google ecosystem, then the Google Nest Cam with Floodlight is the way to go. It has the same sort of features as the non-floodlight version, with the added benefit of two floodlights that can hit a maximum of 2,400 lumens. Each floodlight also has a 25-foot and 180-degree detection radius, which is slightly more than what the camera has, so they should pop on before or at the same time as the camera, which is great. One thing to keep in mind is that this is hardwired, so installation will take some thought and effort.

Best security camera deals: Get a single camera for $30 and more
Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera

Whether you're working at home or still going to an office, having security cameras around your has can offer you peace of mind, but what might not give you as much peace of mind is finding the right one. Luckily, the best security cameras usually have some form of deal on them, and we've collected some of the best here for you to save you the trouble. So, whether you need a whole-house setup or just a single camera, there are deals for every need.
Today's Best Security Camera Deals
While there are a lot of great deals, our favorite is probably the Swann Enforcer bundle, with four 1080p cameras and local storage. That last bit is important if you have choppy internet and can't rely on cloud storage; plus, you don't have to deal with annoying subscription services, which is always a big plus. The downside is that it's a wired system, so you'll have to run cabling, and not everybody is willing to do that. On the other hand, if you want a wireless system, the Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera Security Bundle is a great option since it comes with a charging station and costs $300 for three cameras, so essentially $100 per camera for 2k and a bunch of other functions.

Of course, if you only need one camera, the Arlo Essential Indoor Camera and the eufy Security SoloCam L40 are both great options. Which one you go for depends wholly on whether you feel the need for 2k resolution or not, although if you're doing it for an indoor space that isn't too big, it might not be worth going for 2k, especially if you only need a pet camera.
