The Best Home Security Cameras and Systems

“Love this camera! I actually bought it so I can keep my eye on my dog while I’m away at lunch for work, and it’s awesome. It’s super easy to set up and has really neat features on it like motion detection and sound detection, so if for some reason the dog (or baby) cries, it’ll alert you directly on your phone so you can pull up the video. This also allows you to speak to whoever is on the opposite side of the camera through your phone, so I can calm my dog down should I ever need to. For the price of this, it’s definitely all it’s cracked up to be. Thinking about ordering another!”

“If you’ve ever researched consumer-level outdoor security cameras, you know that the offerings have left a lot to be desired. Poor hardware and even worse software have pretty much defined the entire market. Commercial options are better, but they’re also far more expensive and lack the basics of what I want in a home security camera (cloud recording and a decent smartphone app, to start with). Fortunately, the Nest Outdoor Security Camera now exists. So far, I’m really impressed with it. The video and audio quality are great, but the best feature is the smartphone app (Android, in my case). It’s fast, it’s easy to use, and it works. Scanning through hours of video is just as responsive and intuitive as watching the live feed or the last detected moment of activity. Installing the camera was painless, and the fact that I didn’t have to run to the hardware store means they got the accessories right.”

“This hidden camera is super cool and easy to use. I just followed the instructions that came with it to set the time and motion-detect mode by plugging it into my computer. That was really fast and easy, and then I unplugged it from the PC and plugged it in an outlet and tested if it works. I was able to record right away! You can even change the video-recording resolution. This is really cool, and even a mom like me was able to set it up in no time without any help from my husband. Now I can just plug it in whenever nobody’s home, and nobody will be able to tell that it’s a spy camera and not a phone charger. It does say to not use the camera continuously for more than three days, so I guess we can’t use it on long vacations out of the country, but other than that, it’s a cool gadget to have!”

“Our peaceful, safe neighborhood has recently become a target for crime. Houses and cars have been broken into almost daily. So we decided to purchase a security system before we were hit. This was our first-ever security-camera purchase. I did not know anything about how to pick one, so I did a lot of research and eventually decided on this one. It arrived fast and with great packaging. The picture is crystal clear even in pitch-dark. We couldn’t believe how good it was in night vision. Daytime is just as clear. We have it hooked up to a computer screen that was not being used and it’s perfect. We have recommended it to everyone. Great system, crystal-clear pictures, and good customer service. Luckily, we have not caught anyone trying to break in yet. But if we do, we will be ready.”

“I cannot speak highly enough for what a wonderful product this is. The quality of the Ring Floodlight itself is great, and the quality of video is superb in both day and night. I understand the limitations of night vision, but it is still fantastic, the notifications are awesome, and if you set your perimeters properly, you don’t get a bunch of extra annoying notifications. It is simple to use and installed for me from out of the box, connected to Wi-Fi, and was up and working in less than 30 minutes. This is a must-have … I have shown five co-workers today how it works live, and pretty sure Amazon will have five orders this evening. I will be getting another one for the side of my house that I never thought I could do anything about, and a Ring Camera for the backyard. Thank you, Ring, this should win an award for best product of the decade!!”

“I recently got this setup after attempting a cheaper IP wireless camera. For my needs, the IP camera was a wash and difficult to set up and use. I decided to bite the bullet and spend a little more for this system. I do not regret it one bit! The setup is relatively easy, although wires are almost always a pain. After testing the system, I installed three of the four cameras. The included cables are more than generous in length. Once installed, the system is a breeze to set up. As it has a built-in hard drive, it’s so much easier than getting a cheaper system that requires an additional hard drive. I like that I can see playback, and even record segments from my phone. In addition, the included DVR is easy to use and maneuver through. This is the first security system I ever installed, and I now feel like an expert after doing this myself. I would absolutely recommend this system, and I’ve actually already convinced a few neighbors to get the same system.”
