Editor's Notes

March 05, 2019:

You’ll feel all the more safe and sound when you’re protected by one of these trustworthy, weatherproof outdoor Wifi cameras. Two reputable Nest models made our list, thanks to their impressive list of features like integration with smart home hubs and facial recognition capabilities. The Arlo Pro 2 will give you added security, with its loud siren that can be engaged either through the app or its motion sensors. While most of the models here offer limited free cloud storage, if you want to be able to access your clips for a longer period of time, you might need to pay for a monthly subscription. Most start out at around $5, with higher tiers offered. If you’d rather not pay such a fee, consider the Blink XT featured here; however, note it does not offer two-way audio, which could be a deal-breaker for some. The Eufy Security is an up-and-coming selection with more useful features being added over time, and it provides the ability to store a year’s worth of footage locally.
