We all want to feel safe in our home. But even houses in the safest neighborhoods in the safest cities are still not excluded from the dangers of home invasion. You should never have to put a price on security and protecting the things and people closest to you, but for many years, home security systems have been financially out of reach for most people. Thankfully, that’s changing.
Home security cameras are now more affordable than ever. Not only are cameras inside your home a great way to alert you if there’s an intruder, they also allow you to keep an eye on things when you’re away from home.
Parents love using indoor security cameras to check on their kids and see that their children have arrived safely home from school. Home security cameras have also become a great alternative for new parents when searching for baby monitors, with home security cameras allowing parents to watch over their sleeping baby from another room without entering the nursery and possibly disturbing a sleeping baby. Many cameras include two-way talk function that allows parents and babysitters to help soothe a crying baby.
For those with elderly relatives, indoor security cameras are also a great way to keep an eye on their loved ones.
Pet parents also love home security cameras, which can let you keep an eye on Fido when you’re away from the house.
For people who travel frequently, indoor security cameras provide a peace of mind, with users able to have a quick scan of their home to make sure everything is in its right place. Can’t remember if you unplugged the iron or left a candle burning? Check your indoor home security camera.
Now that we’ve covered all the reasons why you need an indoor security camera, let’s look at some options that are affordable, easy to set up, and useful for every homeowner.
1. Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera
Alexa owners will love the 1080p Full HD screen on the Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera, which features night vision, two-walk audio, motion notifications on your app, and free downloads of the past 24 hours of activity in motion alert videos. Working with the Amazon Alexa, the Cloud Cam can stream a live feed of your home straight to your Amazon Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Echo Show, or Echo Spot. With new updates continually being added, the Cloud Cam has just introduced a list of alerts that will send notifications straight to your smartphone or computer when a baby cries, a dog barks, a smoke alarm goes off or a glass breaks. The Cloud Cam has the option to upgrade the basic subscription package, allowing customers to purchase additional footage storage that can be stored on the cloud, ideal for people who spend extended periods of time away from home and want to be able to go back and check motion detected video. If you’re still on the fence about the Cloud Cam, customer reviews, including many reports of saving pets from a burning house and catching home intruders, will likely convince you that this is a must-have product.

Get an instant view of any room in your house where a Wyze Cam 1080p HD Indoor Wireless Smart Home Camera is set up simply by speaking a command to Alexa. Steaming 24/7 to your smartphone, the LED camera is equipped with night vision and able to see things 30 feet away, meaning nothing in your home will be missed. Motion and sound detection is included with free 14-day rolling cloud storage, with the ability to add additional cameras, as well as SD cards to the cameras to hold local storage. The Wyze is also equipped with the ability to recognize the sound of smoke and CO monitors, with the camera immediately sending a notification to your phone to alert you. With a six-foot power cable and magnetic base, mounting the Wyze anywhere in your home is easy. Customers note that the camera is better for real-time monitoring, ie. checking in on pets as opposed to a camera with storage that will record movement in your home that can later be reviewed.
