Many home surveillance cameras come with apps that provide smartphone connectivity for remote control and 24-hour livestream footage. Motion detection and personal alerts come straight to your device, helping you to feel secure even when you’re away from home.
You say you compiled a list of other cameras and their features, would it be possible to get a copy of this spreadsheet? Personally, I’m looking into a camera by hikvision and am curious if that ever made it on your list, and if so.. why it was disqualified. A high quality PoE (not battery or wireless) camera that can record 24/7 locally and to the cloud is important to me.
The only downside to their cloud ties is that most models require you to pay a monthly fee to store recordings for later viewing. But since they can send alerts and live feeds to smartphones in an instant, these cameras can often negate the need for recordings.
Ordinarily I hate advertising (including hidden/disguised/obfuscated/meta-refreshed/etc affiliate links) but this site stays current, has real world user-testing comparisons and adds so much more information, that I will buy with your link and be back for more. Whatever happened to Consumer Reports?
Check in on your home day or night from wherever you are. Log into the Zmodo app on your phone and get immediate access to your 1080p HD live video, camera settings, alerts, and more. With 65ft of night vision, your property is protected even night.
If you think this all sounds like a big investment, remember there can be multiple applications for your home surveillance system. In addition to security, outdoor cameras provide extra accountability. Expecting a package on a day and the delivery service claims they already came by? Now you have the video footage to prove otherwise. Plus, because they’re equipped with night vision, they’re also a great way to view any four-legged visitors who may only show up after dark. You’ll find that the more information you can have at your disposal, the more secure you’ll feel.
We rate each camera’s mobile app for its reliability and its design, and pay particular attention to the intuitiveness of the interface. We gauge performance by the camera’s resolution and field of view, the reliability of remote viewing and the quality of the video (colors and detail).
I tried your #1 pick the Arlo Pro. I didn’t have near the success you discuss. Its night vision was poor. Its motion detector was totally inconsistent. I jumped up and down in front of it and couldn’t set it off. It worked much better indoor, but outdoor it was a total bust. Perhaps I need a professional model with a professional installation.

Besides good Wi-Fi, you may also need a nearby outlet. Eight of the cameras we tested offer the option to use battery power; most others require an AC connection, which means you won’t be able to place them just anywhere.
Netgear currently sells extra rechargeable batteries for the Arlo Pro and Arlo Pro 2 for $50 each. The company also offers the Arlo Pro Charging Station, which can charge up to two of those batteries simultaneously. Just know that charging takes only about 90 minutes, so most people probably won’t need to bother with spares.

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas so that she could monitor her dog while she was working. Her dog is very ill and not expected to last very long. This allows her to check in on the dog at any time of day wherever she is and has been a great help and relief for her during the day while she is working. She reports that the video is excellent and it allows her to sweep the area she wants covered as well as talking to the dog. This is a wonderful solution for anyone that needs or wants to monitor a given place for any period of time. She said the setup was easy and straight forward. No problems.

Over the last two weekends, I installed a Nest Outdoor Camera. We picked this one because we already have Nest Thermostats and were enticed by the Nest’s smarter motion detection. The motion detection is important because our next door neighbor has over 20 cats and so we have a number of cats that pass through our yard.
If you’re more interested in checking on your kids or spotting packages versus prowlers, the Netgear Arlo Pro 2 is also a great pick. It’s the best battery-powered unit we tested and can go for up to six months between charges, so it’s easy to place and move. If you have an AC outlet handy, the camera can also be plugged in. It delivers an excellent image and clear two-way audio, and it allows for practical smart-home integration and seven days of free cloud storage. It also offers an option (for a fee) to add more cloud-based video storage, and you can use a USB drive for additional local storage. Because it’s battery-powered, it can’t record continuous motion, often leaving gaps of a few seconds in between clips. This makes it less desirable for security and kept it from taking one of our top two spots.
Motion Detection: The Nest motion detection is good, but not great (much like everything Nest produces). The zones are great. However, it still detects motion from cats. However, the person detection feature means that we can ignore every other kind of motion alerts. However, you can’t turn off alerts from things that aren’t people. So it seems that even Nest doesn’t totally trust this feature.
