    SkyBell HD Wi-Fi Video Doorbell

    Best smart doorbell

    The $199 SkyBell HD Wi-Fi Video Doorbell with 1080p live streaming, motion alerts, and free clip storage isn't technically a security camera, but it sure does act like one.

  • Homeboy

    Best low-maintenance security camera

    The $189 Homeboy doesn't have the most impressive specs around; it doesn't even offer live video streaming. But what this battery-powered SD camera lacks in flash, it more than makes up for with a smart, straightforward approach to home security.

  • Nest Cam Indoor

    Best video quality

    Nest Cam's full 1080p live video and recorded footage is among the most impressive we've seen. It's crisp, high-quality video puts SD cameras -- and most of the HD cameras we've reviewed -- to shame.
