home wireless security
If you’ve ever read any of my camera reviews, you know that I hold all my cameras up to the Security Baron Necessary Features Test, which makes sure that they’re up to my high standards in terms of video, audio, night vision, storage, smart platform integrations, artificial intelligence, convenience, and value. After many months of reviewing different cameras from top brands like Arlo and Canary, I’m ready to show you the best security cameras of 2019. I love the Nest Cam Indoor— obviously, or I wouldn’t have named it my best camera!Video wise, the Nest Cam impresses with 1080p HD display, a wide 130 degree field of view and the ability to zoom in eight times. The night vision is similarly clear with eight infrared LED sensors, and the camera comes equipped with two way audio. Not only does two way audio let you speak to whoever you’re recording, which can be an easy way to talk to family members from afar, but it’s also a great way to scare away intruders as a last ditch effort. You’d be scared too if a disembodied voice came screaming out at you to get out of their house!On a more negative note, the camera’s night vision wasn’t quite as clear as I’d like it to be. While the box said you’d be able to see for 15 feet, things got blurry for me at 10. However, I am quite pleased with the camera’s two way audio and smart platform integrations, which include Amazon Alexa, Fire TV, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant. It’s hard to find a camera that integrates with Apple HomeKit, as its one of the less popular
smart home automations, so I like that the Circle 2 really gives you options here. Of course, you’ll be able to watch your livestream or cloud storage footage on your Fire TV in addition to vocally commanding the Logitech Circle 2. Truly, home security has never been more convenient!While the Logitech Circle 2 includes 24 hours of free cloud storage plus unlimited streaming and downloads, I would recommend going with a membership, not only for the additional
cloud storage but also for the person detection only available with the premium package.
