I have both a NestCam (indoors) and just purchased the Arlo Pro (outdoor/indoor) based on The Wirecutter review. The one big negative with the Arlo Pro is that the cloud recording is not continuous whereas the Nestcam is. You are dependent with Arlo on the camera picking up motion. It picks up rain drops just fine, but four times has missed people!!! Yes, the Nestcam charges more for cloud recording versus the 7 days free, but the continuous recording is a far better experience than relying on the motion detection of the Arlo Pro. My apologies if I missed it, but don’t think I see the issue of continuous versus event-driven recording addressed in the article.
Alerts. A good outdoor security camera will alert your smartphone or tablet whenever motion is detected. It should be able to deliver those mobile alerts whether you’re inside the house or on the other side of the world. Faster are better, but that is often dependent more on the network you’re connected to than on the camera itself.
Zmodo’s 1080p Outdoor WiFi Camera requires a password-protected 2.4GHz Wi-Fi connection with WPA/WPA2 encryption. It can be set up and controlled through the Zmodo smartphone app (available for iOS 7 and up and Android 4.0 and up).
As with the Nest, adding a paid subscription makes this camera a lot smarter. If you’re just looking for extra storage, the Circle Safe Basic plan will provide 14 days for $4 per month per camera (compared with five days for $5 for Nest Aware). The $10 Premium plan bumps that up to 31 days of storage (compared with 10 days for Nest Aware) and adds zones, filter options, and the capability to differentiate between people, pets, and other movement.

For people with data capped internet – having this camera recording all the time might not make sense. This doesn’t even take into account the potential network degradation if they don’t have any QoS (Quality of Service) configured to make sure that the Nest doesn’t have any side effects on network performance.

We chose cameras with similar pricing between $70 and $200, though cost doesn’t currently play a role in our scores. In terms of features and quality, this is a step above budget security cameras. The cameras have 720p HD video resolution or greater and night vision, which are essential attributes in modern security cameras.
