One of the last things you want to be worrying about while you’re away on vacation is what’s going on at home. Burglars, intruders, fires, gas leaks, nosy neighbors: each is a homeowner’s worst nightmare. But thanks to the many advances of technological innovation, home security camera systems exist in abundance — perhaps, too much abundance. That’s why we narrowed down a list of the very best ways to keep an eye on your place (and your pets, and your plants) while you’re out traveling the world.
Whether you’re often away for business or just want to keep tabs on your home during family vacation, there are a multitude of affordable home security camera systems with varying features to suit your needs. For example, many models offer smartphone connection, allowing you to check into a live feed of your home from anywhere in the world. Other popular and handy features include motion detection that’ll send alerts to your phone in case something fishy is going on in your living room and two-way audio that’ll let you communicate with the package delivery person, or let you say hi to your kids and remind them that Mom/Dad is always watching (it’s chill).
We’ve gathered up the very best home security camera systems on Amazon and sorted them based on popular features, such as smartphone connection, 360-degree coverage, and outdoor surveillance.
