The Best Wireless IP Camera
For its stunning video quality, quick setup, incredible field of view and overall awesomeness, Dropcam Pro is our pick for the best Wireless IP Camera.
Dropcam has recently updated its image censor and added new optics. The result – stunningly beautiful video quality.
The setup is a breeze – connect to Wi-Fi via your computer or iOS mobile device ( they have a great iOS APP, by the way), and you will be live streaming in under 60 seconds. It supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks for improved wireless connectivity.
Don’t want to miss a thing? You got it. It has 130 degrees diagonal field of view, plus improved zoom and night vision to keep your eyes glued to the screen.
It also has two-way talk feature, which has experienced some hiccups in the past. But, given everything else, with an optional Cloud Video Recording to securely store your recording offsite, Dropcam Pro is a winner.Check Price on Amazon
The Best Outdoor Security Wireless IP Camera
Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera
If you are looking for an outdoor security camera, nothing beats Nest Cam.
It gives you a live video feed 24/7, with a 130 degree wide angle view for maximum exposure. You are able to look through its all-glas lens at a very high quality 1080p HD video.
Nest Cam is smart. If it detects an activity, you can set it up to send you phone or email alert with an snapshot of the incident.
The whole Nest Cam package is weatherproof – so you can rest assured that it will continue working rain or shine.
You can communicate with your visitor through its built in speaker and micorphone. For example, next time if you see your delivery guy leaving the package by the sidewalk instead of your door, you can yell at him and ask him to leave it closer to your door. Try to be nice 🙂
Nest has made the installation very straightforward (and hassle free). You simply plug the camera cord into an outlet, mount the camera somewhere that makes sense, and you are good to go. If you have a magnetic surface, you can even stick it on there – no drilling or messy work required.
