All of these cameras will give you a decent amount of features, but at a pretty hefty price tag. One caveat with all of these cameras is that they cannot be integrated with other devices and systems. In other words, if you’re into the whole home automation scene such as smart door locks and lights and smart security systems, the none of these cameras will interact with any of these devices. They are solely standalone security cameras that work on their own platform and app.
If you would like a more versatile camera, that can work with fully fledged home security and smart home automation systems, look at our Alarm.com indoor, outdoor and doorbell cameras. Not only are they extremely affordable, and can cost you next to nothing if you sign up for a contract, but they will give you the most amount of flexibility in terms of how you want them to interact with your new ‘smart’ home.
