The cheapest camera in this review, but still offers great features, like color night vision, motion and sound detection, smart home integration (aside for Apple’s home kit) even a built in siren. The video quality isn’t the greatest so if you’re on a budget and still want the 2k video you should go for the Eufy Indoor Cam 2K

Our Verdict

When considering home security price isn’t necessarily the main factor. So while the price range of the cameras reviewed ranges from $30 to $400 going with the cheapest option might not be the best choice. That being said even the lower range priced cameras offer good picture quality, sound and motion detection. When you making your final choice we recommend focusing on:

  1. How is the Image/Video/Sound Quality.
  2. Which Smart Hubs does it integrate with?
  3. Are there subscription fee required for cloud storage?
  4. What kind of warrenty is offered?
  5. Customer support availability?

Design of the camera is also something you probably like to consider. Although it may not be the main factor you may want to consider how the camera design and colors fit into your home. .
