Searching for the best indoor and outdoor security camera for your home, office, or business? This post takes you through some of the top options available, so you can pick the one(s) that suits your needs.
Like many businesses- and homeowners, you might have found yourself worried or bewildered about exactly what happens at your business premises or house when you aren’t around. Perhaps you want to remotely monitor Bella, Daisy, Coco, or Chloe; or keep track of your compound and get footage in the event of suspicious trespassing or burglary, smart security cameras are exactly what you require.
The top products offer superb features such as ultra-high definition (UHD) view, built-in audio system (microphone and speaker) to facilitate live chat, integration with smart devices like smartphones, user-friendliness, and easy configurations.
Besides, your home wireless communication networks (WIFI and Bluetooth) provide a perfect solution for a vastly sophisticated security system, one that leverages the power of contemporary technologies such as artificial intelligence and natural language processing, remote backup, as well as potable screen – mobile phone, tablet, or PC. Also, the smart security camera systems are compatible with various smart home platforms including Alexa, Apple Homekit, and Google Assistant among others. Rather than recording footage for hours, these cameras feature some kind of motion activation (motion sensing) and, in advanced cases, human detection. This technology enables the system to decide whether to record incidents and/or notify you via your mobile device, a custom application, or any other alert mechanism of your choice. Some security cameras use geofencing capability to activate themselves when you are not around.
This implies picking a security camera for your home and/or business is as much about picking its environment as the gadget itself; Lorex, Ring, Nest Cam Indoor, Canary, Arlo, Blink, and Wyze Cam are some of the top brands in the market.
Lorex offers a broad range of camera choices, including digital, WIFI-enabled, and wireless cameras. Its products are available in different styles such as bullet cameras, dome cameras, video doorbell cameras, pan-and-tilt cameras, and even cameras fitted in floodlights.
Ring is a top indoor security camera that seamlessly integrates with smartphone applications to enable professional monitoring. The security cam features the Ring Neighbor app to enable homeowners to receive alerts from their neighbors and footage as part of neighborhood monitoring efforts.
Whereas Ring is regarded as the best battery-powered security camera, Nest is regarded as the best wired indoor security cam. Its biggest selling point is its consistent recording. The Nest smart application allows the filtering of footage to get the needed clips.
Canary security is available in two variants: Canary Pro (previously Canary All-in-one) and Canary view.
Arlo security cameras are popular for their DIY Surveillance capability. The system can be directly connected to the home WIFI network and work seamlessly up to 220 feet away from the router.
Blink security cameras are wireless, inexpensive, and characterized by low maintenance.
Wyze indoor cam is probably the most affordable security camera for DIY smart home security. It’s characterized by easy installation and two-week free cloud storage.
If you’re looking for a security camera for indoor and/or outdoor purposes at your home and/or business premise, then you should look for something that best suits your needs. Consider the audio and video quality, cost, storage, night vision capability, smart integration, installation, durability, style, appearance, as well as mobile compatibility.
