Guardzilla's nosy 360 camera sees your whole smart home
The $230 Guardzilla 360 is not like most indoor d.i.y.
Instead of having a fixed angle or pan tilt zoom capability Is the 360 cam gives you a 24/7, 360 degree view.
Pull up the feed, or a saved clip to see exactly what's happening from every possible vantage point, at the same time.

Guardzilla's premium 360 cam also doubles as an all-in-one home Security system.
Arm or disarm it from the related app, or set it to auto arm so the system will automatically arm when you leave home.
It also has a built in 100 decibel siren, to scare away intruders when the system is armed and motion is detected.

The 360 also works with the Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, Samsung SmartThings, IFTTT, and Nest.
So you have a bunch of advanced voice control and automation options to choose from.

But it is a good choice if you're trying to cover a large area and can only get one camera.
