The Best Security Cameras for Your Home

Wi-Fi security cameras let you keep tabs on packages outside your home, pets on the couch, and even prowlers raiding your refrigerator. We’ve done hundreds of hours of research and testing on outdoor indoor , hardwired, wireless, and doorbell Wi-Fi cameras , searching for the best models to fit a variety of homes, budgets, and security needs.

Ring Outdoor Camera

  • Subscription:  required (no free video storage)
  • Power: corded
  • Compatibility: Amazon Alexa, Works With Ring

The Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In Wi-Fi camera comes with a lengthy, weather-resistant power cord but can also run on a battery (sold separately). We prefer the cord, which enables the camera’s ability to record longer clips and more accurately capture motion events. The camera delivers crisp two-way audio and 1080p video, with a 130-degree field of view.

Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera

  • Subscription:  required (no free video storage)
  • Power: cordless, rechargeable battery
  • Compatibility: Amazon Alexa, Apple Home (with a compatible base station), Google Home, IFTTT, Samsung SmartThings

The  Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera  captures sharp 2K video and includes a rechargeable battery so you can install it anywhere within reach of your Wi-Fi signal.

the system has a 6,500 K spotlight for color night vision, as well as a siren that peaks at 95 dB (based on our measurements), which you can set up to trigger automatically based on movement or in an emergency with a touch of a button in the app.

Eufy Indoor Cam C120

  • Subscription:  optional (local storage is free)
  • Power:  corded
  • Compatibility: Amazon Alexa, Apple Home, Google Home


The  Eufy Solo IndoorCam C24  captures 2K images day and night, a massive upgrade from 1080p resolution, which has long been considered the gold standard. It can detect motion, tell the difference between people and pets, and even hear crying.

Capture 4K video and photos with a 2-axis gimbal and Electric Image Stabilization (EIS) for smooth shots.

You can store clips in one of four ways, including locally on a microSD card or NAS (network-attached storage. 

The C24 is also the least expensive, best-performing camera we’ve reviewed that supports Amazon Alexa, Apple Home, and Google Home.

Google Nest Doorbell (Wired, 2nd Gen)  

  • Subscription: optional (free cloud storage)
  • Power: hardwired
  • Compatibility: Amazon Alexa, Google Home

The   Google Nest Doorbell   was the most accurate when it came to identifying types of motion (person, animal, vehicle, or package), and reacted quickly when sending smartphone alerts and displaying live views.

 The image resolution is only 960×1280, which is lower than our other picks, but the picture is clear, and the low-res actually ends up being easier on your Wi-Fi network to allow for smoother streaming. 

Audio was always clear on either end, with adjustable volume and the ability to switch off the microphone when necessary.
