You want the exterior of your home to be bright and safe but also attractive, so we've looked for options that can meet these criteria, leading us to the Good Earth Security and Onforu 2 Pack as top options. These are hardwired rather than plug-and-play, but they aren't terribly costly, provide ample illumination, and have a relatively plain appearance. For those who'd like something that will integrate into a smart home, we chose the Philips Hue PAR38. You'll need a hub, but once you have it, these lights seem to do just about everything but make you a cup of coffee. We also decided to add the Ring Floodlight Camera, although arguments continue over whether this Ring is ready for primetime. Unfortunately, if you expect to open the box, hang up the light, and never think about it again, it's probably not the option for you. If, on the other hand, you're willing to put up with a few installation and setup hassles, and you want the smart features, it may be worth the extra work. Plus, it's an obvious camera/light combo, which may cause burglars or porch pirates to think twice about approaching your home. Finally, we opted for one solar option, the Litom Solar, which are simple to operate but not terribly large. If you want truly bright illumination, expect to need several of them.
