We specifically focused on fixed cameras with a wide field of view, at least 80 degrees, so they can monitor an entire room from a corner. We also researched ways to test the cameras in real world scenarios, rather than relying on confusing technical benchmarks. We hold each camera to the same standards and test them in similar conditions. We use the data from our tests to find the different strengths of each camera and to inform our recommendations. How Much do Wireless Security Cameras Cost?You can expect to pay around $150 on average for a wireless home security camera, though you can find products for as low as $25 Wyze Cam and as high as $350 Nest Cam IQ Outdoor. Most Wi Fi security cameras under $100 come from generic brands, which may have shorter warranties and fewer features than products from established brands such as Nest, Samsung, Netgear, D Link and others. You can also expect to pay for local or cloud video storage. Local storage is essentially a microSD card, which is generally a one time purchase, while cloud video storage costs an average of $5 a month or $50 a year. ÀHow We TestedVideoFor daylight video tests, we wrote on a poster and placed it 16 feet away to compare each camera's indoor video quality. We used two lighting settings: natural light with the lights on and natural light on its own. We found the video was often better with the lights on than with natural light alone.

This is another thing people want their wireless camera to do—watch things inside during the day, and keep an eye on what’s going on outside after dark. But this rarely works. Most indoor security cameras will pick up glares and reflections when aimed out a window. This obscures the outside view, making it useless. If both outdoor and indoor security are a priority for you, we recommend getting the right type of camera for each area. You may be able to find an indoor camera that claims to be specifically designed to minimize the glare and reflection of a window, but be sure to read a lot of customer reviews to verify that those claims are accurate.

It's worth noting that they do work well both indoors and outdoors, thanks to their IP65 waterproof rating and strong magnetic mounts. Thanks to 8x digital zoom, a 'smart siren' and a powerful Night Vision mode, there's no corner of your home you can't keep a close eye on from the system's app or web interface, giving you ultimate peace of mind. The only downside is that the set up can be tricky and it's not the most intuitive security system on the market either. 99 View at Amazon$179. 99View at Newegg$199. 99View at WalmartSee all prices 12 found?A collaboration with designer Yves Béhar, the Hive View is one of the few security cameras we’ve ever seen that actually looks stylish, coming as it does in a choice of champagne gold or black and brushed copper finishes. Thankfully, as much effort has gone into the substance as the style, and the Hive View comes with some really cool features. Most notable is its detachable head, which allows you to temporarily move the camera – with its HD 180 degree field of vision – to anywhere you’d like in the house for as long as the on board battery lasts, which is about an hour. Perfect if you want to keep an eye on the baby while cooking. The Hive View works with the wider Hive ecosystem, so if you’ve already got the Hive thermostat and sensors everything will work seamlessly together in the same app. 98 View at Amazon$381.
