You've definitely heard of the nest cams, but it's not the only game in the security camera market.
We're going to talk about the next best options.
But first, let's talk about nest really quick.
It was a big deal years ago, when it was called drop camp, then Google nest Ended up buying dropcam for around half a billion dollars.
Now the drop cam is the Nest Cam and it's still a big deal.
So let's forget about the Nest Cam and see the next best alternatives.
And number five with the Logitech circle two, if you love Siri you will love the Logitech circle too.
It works with home kit And it's capable of responding to Siri commands using a home pod speaker or your iPhone or iPad, Amazon and Google people.
Don't roll your eyes in a circle to work with Google and Amazon to okay enough go on.
Going in circles.
Let's roll on.
These jokes are horrible.
This circle too requires an adapter for power even though it can handle outdoor usage.
You'd have to keep the camera tethered to an outlet.
Logitech does offer a wire free version.
But that cost you a couple of bucks extra.
It shoots Trinity PHD video and has a 180 degree viewing angle.
There's even free 24 hour event based Cloud Storage.
If you decide to pay up for a service plan You get longer term video clips storage person alerts and you can customize motion detection zones.
And number four is the Arlo video doorbell.
It's got a wide field of view at 180 degrees, and it shoots video in a one by one aspect ratio.
The square video made it easier to see if a package was left on a doorstep.
When the Arlo video doorbell is armed motion detection and video recording is active when disarmed, do not getting any notifications.
Now you do not get free cloud storage that starts at a whopping three bucks per month which gets you an Arlo smart plan.
This gives you 30 days of cloud storage plus motion alerts that will tell you if the motion was a person, a car, a package or an animal.
Like the chupacabra.
[SOUND] Arlo smart also lets you set up a motion detection zone in case you don't want everything covered by the camera to set off an alert The Arlo video doorbell works with Google Assistant, Amazon's nameless assistant and Siri, Holy mackerel.That tissue attached to my head.It is rolling off.
We're at number three and that is the Amazon blink x T two.
Here's what you get.
A battery powered camera with a waterproof housing so pop that bad boy inside or outside the house.
Amazon says the batteries in the XT2 can last for two years.
$100 buys you one camera.
However, Amazon gives you a discount if you buy multiples 180 bucks for two, 250 for three and 380 gets you five.
Set up is a very simple tainable process, the camera syncs up with the cleverly named Blink sync module.
The Blink sync helps the camera and app Put together.
Don't want to use the sink.
Do you need it?
Since blink is owned by Amazon, it works with Amazon's voice assistant who shall not be named.
What else do you get free Cloud Storage.
Amazon will save your clips until it runs out of space.
The oldest ones get deleted and so on.
Number two is the y's camp.
That gives you a camera capable of recording 10 ADP HD video, a micro SD card slot if you want continuous local recording, along with support for Google Assistant and Amazon.
Not enough, you can set one motion detection zone.
The camera can also detect sound with smoke and carbon monoxide alarm detection.
How about 14 day cloud storage?
Yep, that 14 day cloud storage is event based Also you get time lapse video that all costs $20.
Let me try to make this more clear.
When you buy the camera for $20.
You get all those features I mentioned included, there are no monthly fees for them one payment and you get all that.
And then number one is the Arlo pro three.
It's not just one camera.
It's not three cameras.
When you buy the pro three, you get a pack of two cameras.
With the base station, so what's so great about it?
It works with both Google Assistant and Amazon.
Also Siri, but come on, who cares?
The Arlo Pro 3 cameras are capable of 2K resolution, which is great.
Additionally, the Pro 3 has a built in siren.
Did I mention that the Pro 3 can also go outside?
That's right, it's an indoor and outdoor camera, where's your video going?
You can attach a USB drive to the hub So you can have local storage.
It also has the same optional cloud storage as the Arlo video doorbell.
Here's a list of more features included night vision, two way audio motion detection and alerts and the part that will make you pause.
The price of the pro 3 is around $500.
