All of these cameras received four or more stars on Amazon, so check them out and decide which one is best for you.
Amazon Cloud Cam security camera
The Amazon Cloud Cam sends you a notification on your preferred mobile device whenever it detects any activity, so you can keep tabs on your home from anywhere. Thanks to the always-ready motion detection, it’s able to capture activities right from the start. “I got the Amazon Cloud Cam to see what my cats do during the day. Today, I had left the house and was out running errands. I got an alert that motion was detected in my kitchen. I looked at the live view and saw a person had broken into my home. I used the microphone feature and yelled at him to get out of my house and told him the police were on the way. He immediately left. Thank you Amazon. Without my cloud cams, this could have had a very different ending,” says a reviewer.
Dericam 1080p home security camera
The Dericam 1080p Wireless WiFi Security Camera can provide you day and night surveillance. You can access and view via smartphone, PC, or tablet, and it’s compatible with different Web browsers, such as IE, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, and third-party software applications such as Live Cams Pro, tinyCam, and Blue Iris. “I replaced 4 Foscams with 4 of these and I couldn’t be happier with the video I’m seeing…the color is great and the image is sharp and clear,” a reviewer says. “I bought just one to try them out and shortly bought the other 3. With the app you can talk to the other end and they can talk back to you if you choose. I also use Blue Iris for recording any movement which I have set up. It also emails and could send a notification in a text if you choose. For the price, at least try one like I did.” Next, don’t miss the 35 things you’re doing that make your house a target for burglars.
