Some good camera surveillance systems for 2015 include the Nest Cam, the Belkin Netcam HD+ and the Canary, according to Tom’s Hardware. These Wi-Fi security cameras all stream video footage to users’ phones, tablets or computers.
The Nest Cam receives top reviews for its sleek design, easy installation and high video quality. The cam’s swiveling base makes it easy to position for maximum surveillance potential, and its 1080p video is some of the best available. Full use of the system’s features, including cloud storage of video footage, requires a monthly service fee.
Belkin’s Netcam HD+ is another quality surveillance camera, offering easy set up and control of home features such as lights and electrical switches. Reviewers praise the camera’s features and price while noting that its video quality is not the best available. The Netcam HD+ also offers cloud storage for a monthly fee.
The Canary is more expensive than many competitors, but the camera system makes up for its price with a bevy of sophisticated features, including heat, humidity and air quality sensors. The Canary also features a built-in intercom system and an alarm siren to deter intruders. The camera features an automatic “geofencing” system that activates motion detection when users leave home. Quality video recording and an intuitive mobile app make the Canary a worthwhile choice for users willing to pay more.
