Which cameras are best for house security ?

It depends on what “house security” means to you. For example:

  • Do you want to monitor the cameras remotely?
  • Do you want someone else to monitor the cameras remotely?
  • Do you want the cameras to trigger an automated response in some way? – In an alert to you? In an alert to a monitoring service? In an automated “Who goes there?!” on a speaker near the cameras?
  • Do you want the cameras to record activity? For how long?
  • Do you want the cameras to be AC-powered? Battery-powered? Both?
  • Do you want the cameras to be connected to the Internet? Off the Internet? Both?
  • What image resolution do you want?
  • How much storage do you want? On the camera? Off the camera on a drive in your house? Off the camera and in the cloud?
  • What focal length(s) do you want?
  • How sensitive to movement do you want the cameras to be?
