security camera

guardzilla-outdoor-1

A few months ago I reviewed the Guardzilla all-in-one video security system. For those of you who don't remember or missed the review, it was a simple, feature-rich, app controlled, Wi-Fi security camera. I came away pretty impressed with the Guardzilla and recommended it to anyone in the market for an all-in-one system. Hoping to [...]

Seems like everyone is making web-enabled surveillance cameras these days. A majority of these consumer-grade cameras are meant for indoor use only, have 1080p HD resolution, and connect to the internet via WiFi. Most with some sort of cloud-based recording service, typically requiring a monthly subscription fee to store and/or view past footage of events. We have reviewed [...]

The best thing about security camera systems is that they allow us to keep an eye on our loved ones and property when we're not physically there. The worst things about security camera systems is that the majority of them have to be plugged into a wall outlet for power and probably require a monthly [...]

I've said it before, I'll say it again...I love security cameras. There is a certain peace of mind in knowing that if someone breaks into your home, you will know about it instantly. Additionally, most newer cameras have some type of DVR function, allowing you to provide Police with footage if bad guys ever break into [...]

Samsung isn't a name that normally comes to my mind when I think about security cameras brands, so I was surprised when I was offered the chance to review their SmartCam HD Plus. Since this camera is made by Samsung, it has to be good right? Let's find out if Samsung is the next big thing in wireless security cameras. [...]

Recently at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, EZVIZ the company who makes the Ezviz 720p Indoor Mini Wi-Fi Camera that I reviewed a few months ago, launched several more home WiFi security cameras to add to their product line up. The new EZVIZ Mini+ features 1080p HD resolution and 2-way audio which the Mini didn't [...]

foscam-fi9900p-1

Cloud based security cameras like the Nest Cam, Logitech's Logi Circle cam, the FLIR FX security camera and others are very popular because they are easy to setup, have a mobile app and don't require special wiring to use them. Then there are wireless IP cameras like those from Foscam that are also easy to [...]

Years ago, the Dropcam security cameras in many ways brought easy to setup home monitoring to the mainstream consumer. But today we find ourselves with more choices than we know what to do with and sadly all too many of those come with a monthly subscription fee to store and/or view past footage of events. Though not so [...]

Do you have a wireless security camera setup for your home so that you can keep an eye on your loved ones and property when you're not physically there? I've reviewed quite a few cameras over the years but have kept a Dropcam setup at my house for several years now. When Dropcam was bought [...]

First it was portable USB chargers, then Bluetooth speakers.  Lately I'm seeing a lot of "web" cameras designed as security or monitoring devices.  Today I've got the Kidde RemoteLync Smart Home Camera to try out. Wait, Kidde?  Yes, the people that make safety devices such as fire extinguishers and smoke detectors.  But a home security camera? [...]

I've reviewed so many wireless IP cameras over the years that I'm rarely impressed when a new one is offered to me for review. I wasn't all that excited when Foscam offered their R2 Wireless 1080P IP Camera to me, but once I received it and set it up, it quickly became one of my [...]

I love the idea of a video doorbell. Being able to see and speak to your visitors even when you are not home could really be handy. So fortunately when the Gadgeteer was offered the DoorBird Video Doorbell for review, I was given the opportunity to test it. When doing so, I found that the [...]

The competition for cloud-based WiFi home security cameras has really heated up in the past year or so. Finding a camera that has all the features you want for a low price can be tough to find. This is especially true when you factor in the price for accessing video through the cloud. The latest [...]

WiFi home security cameras are one of latest gadgets to explode in popularity in the last year or two. It seemed like this category really took off after Dropcam came on the scene. Before Dropcams and other cameras like them, home security cameras were not plug and play. Far from it. They required hard wiring [...]

Since becoming part of the Gadgeteer team, I've had the opportunity to review a few wireless security cameras. As I've said before, I love the peace of mind they bring my family. I've attempted to use these cameras to create a patchwork home security system - with varying levels of success. What I truly need [...]

I am always on the lookout for the perfect surveillance system for monitoring my home and cats while on vacation. The first thing I tried was a webcam connected to a computer that I would view from an app on my phone. Next, I tried an IP camera that could be remotely controlled by my [...]

I love indoor security cameras. I have what I consider a healthy bit of paranoia and love the peace of mind security cameras give me. Prior to my employment with The Gadgeteer I had purchased two Foscams, and early on I was given the chance to review the Oco Cam. Recently, I was given the [...]

Products like the Dropcam, now called Nest Cam, have made home security cameras a very popular gadget category. I have a Dropcam Pro that I have really really enjoyed using, but since they switched hands to Nest, the web-based viewer feels sluggish and there's also the monthly cloud subscription cost which makes it prohibitive to [...]

As I'm sure I've stated before, I'm a pretty huge fan of the Internet of Things and smart home technology; however, my number one priority in life is keeping my family safe. Fortunately for me, I get to combine these two things by using home security cameras. I currently own two Foscam's, but they aren't [...]

Dlink-Wifi-Camera-1

I have never had a WiFi security camera, but it has been on my list of things to try. I've read Julie's review of the FLIR FX Security camera and DropCam Pro and came to the conclusion that those seem to be the security cameras to beat. When the D-link HD WiFi Camera was offered [...]

I'm a big fan of the Dropcam and have reviewed and used every model since it first came on the market five years ago. In that same time period, I've reviewed many other home security cameras like the FLIR FX which is the latest camera I've had the opportunity to try. I tend to compare [...]

If you've been looking for a home security camera but can't decide which brand to buy, let me make your decision even harder by giving you another company to check out that you might not have considered before. It's FLIR, the same company who makes thermal imaging cameras and other high-tech gear. Their FLIR FX [...]

Julie and I have reviewed many Withings living-well products over the years, primarily smart-scales and activity trackers up to this point. Though in the past year, they have expanded their line-up to include baby, sleep, heart, and home products as well. In this case, Withings sent us several of their new high definition surveillance cameras to [...]
