The Arlo Go is a wireless camera specifically intended for video surveillance. It is wireless because it works without cables: it is powered by a 3660mAh battery and connects to LTE via a SIM card. And it is specific to video surveillance because it can detect motion or hear noises, it also has a night mode with infrared LEDs, and it uploads footage to the Netgear cloud.
Surveillance & security cameras
Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is the best smart cabled outdoor surveillance camera. Of course, it’s not cheap and without Nest Aware you’ll miss a part of the “action”, but it’s the best there is.
Nest Cam is one of the best smart cameras on the market and this IQ version only improves what we’ve seen so far. The connection with the Nest Aware subscription is always important and considering the non-negligible price, we recommend everyone to at least carefully consider what would be the cost in the long run.
Netgear Arlo Pro 2 is the best wireless home security product. It’s complete, very smooth, and works very well. Generation after generation it always gains new functions. But the price remains very high.
The Nest Cams (both Indoor and Outdoor) are without a doubt among the best devices on the market. We may even dare to say that they are the best of the bunch, but in their case, much of the goodness of the product depends on the need of the individual buyer. When you first set them up, you will be offered a month’s trial of Nest Aware and it is very likely that you will be persuaded to continue with the subscription. Once configured you can enter “zero thoughts” mode.
Netatmo Welcome is one of the best smart security cams in circulation and has the undoubted advantage of being able to be used in its entirety without having to pay any subscription whatsoever.
Foscam R2 is a good product mainly for its great flexibility thanks to its rotating head. The video quality is good, but not great. However, if you know how to set it up or if you would like to use it in IP cam mode, it can offer a lot for its price.
Yi Dome is a cheap surveillance camera that offers a lot at a low cost. The ability to turn on by itself is a special feature that by itself might be enough to convince a lot of people.
