There are so many choices for WI-FI and wired security camera systems, you no longer see the forest for the trees. Where do you have to pay attention to, other than the price? First, you have to determine why and for what you want to use a security system. Here is a review of different sorts of security cameras.
That can be for various reasons:
- You want to know who’s standing outside when the bell is ringing.
- You want to watch your pets when you are not at home.
- You want to protect your property outside.
- You want constant surveillance in your shop.
- You want to use it for inside, outside and as a baby watcher.
- Do you need night view?
- Or just fool the burglar?
Which quality do you demand? When you want to watch your pets, you obviously can do with a lower definition camera then when you want to secure your shop and need very sharp images of potential robbers. You do want, in the last case, HD images.
How many cameras do you need? For a front door, you only need one, which is able to recognize persons. For pets ditto. But when you want to secure your property or shop, it is sensible to choose for multiple cameras with high-quality images. Often, the police can not identify persons from security cameras because of the low quality. What use does it have to install and buy a cheap system when the police can’t do anything with the images.
I have selected a number of cameras based on user reviews with attention to convenient in use, quality, price, easiness to use and to install, vulnerability, safety codes, compatibility on devices and app experiences.
Cleverdog Smart Wi-Fi security camera
It goes without saying that you want to secure your home. This is very easy with this wireless security camera.
Because the IP camera works on Wi-Fi, no cabling is required. The model is equipped with night vision via infrared. The night vision is no less than 10 meters, so you can easily follow a wide area, even when it is already dark. In addition, there are motion sensors that simply detect every movement.
Keep a close eye on whether everything is still completely safe at the location where you have confirmed the IP camera. The IP camera can not only be used as a wireless security camera but can also be used as a babysitter. This way you can see exactly whether your child is still sleeping when you are working elsewhere in the house. Through the handy microphone, you can also talk to your little one, for example, to reassure your child when he/she starts to cry.
The wireless security camera with night vision can easily be placed anywhere because you do not have to worry about difficult connections. You can use the IP camera in various ways and simply charge it via a USB cable.
Suitable for: Pet and baby watch, front door caller watch
This camera is selected for its price/quality ratio.
Somfy Protect Security Camera
The camera that sees everything and immediately warns you and protects your privacy. You have an extra eye that keeps a close eye on everything at home and will inform you immediately if something is wrong. With the Somfy Security Camera, nothing escapes you. Because this HD plug & play security camera takes everything and sends you a push message when there’s trouble. And it is beautiful; you install this camera within 10 minutes and let it communicate with your smartphone via the app. And he looks good too!
All images that this camera makes when it detects motion are stored in the cloud. As soon as the camera detects a movement, the alarm goes off and you immediately get a push message on your smartphone. You can watch your premises live for 10 seconds. If the power fails then the backup battery ensures that it can continue for at least 4 hours.
And then there is the privacy shutter. At the moment you enter the room, the camera literally closes. So everything you do in your own home is only meant for your eyes. No image, no cloud, nothing. 100% privacy guaranteed.
And last but not least. Do you have pets? You can set this camera in such a way that it does not activate the alarm with every movement.
