Best Home Security Cameras

LF indoor cameras to deal with shady neighbors plus other security features. Want to buy today!!

I recently had new neighbors on both sides of me move in. They are obviously tweakers. I need to do some budget friendly home security. Someone (possibly one of them) broke into the abandoned house across the street. I am especially looking for 1-2 indoor security cameras. [These are the ones I am looking at right now](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076H3SRXG/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_dp_3eXjBbQ3DMKCY?pldnSite=1). The Foscam and YI cameras also look viable. I have been looking at camera options for almost two days now and feel no closer to finding a good one. My budget for cameras…

I know nothing about cameras but I need to learn and buy some asap

Here’s the backstory: https://www.reddit.com/r/legaladvice/comments/8r72xb/pre_legal_advice_drug_addict_friend_is_probably/ I don’t have a lot of money to spend but I need something that records and I can watch from my phone. I have the perfect spot to hide so I don’t care about the size. I’ve been trying learn on my own but things are getting worse and I need kind of like a list for me to pick from please. I have a small 700 square foot apartment and the camera will be in the living room so I don’t need the best quality…

Best option for wired (power only), external camera

Hello. The back of my home has this: [https://puu.sh/AGuZd/db9c3a5edd.jpg](https://puu.sh/AGuZd/db9c3a5edd.jpg) Since I rent, I would like to use that power source and hookup a light and camera. My default thought process led me to the Ring option: [https://shop.ring.com/collections/security-cams/products/floodlight-cam?variant=56549563083](https://shop.ring.com/collections/security-cams/products/floodlight-cam?variant=56549563083) However, I wouldn’t mind being able to record 25/7 (which I’m pretty sure I can’t do with Ring). Are there any options out there? I’m open to whatever other ideas or thoughts that you have that I may be missing. Thanks!!!!!

High-resolution (4K or better) camera systems with local recording as well as syndication to a cloud based service?

I recently bought a house and have a large perimeter that I’d like to keep under surveillance. I’m curious what my options are for High-resolution (4K or better) camera systems that record locally but also have an option of syndicating recordings to a cloud-based service. I’ve been looking a bit at Lorex cameras and like their motorized features but I’m not sure if those features are supported by third-party software or if I’d be locked into a Lorex device ecosystem. I’m not opposed to something that is DIY as long…

What do people think about Simplisafe? Reliable?

Title says it all. Thinking about switching away from ADT since the monthly cost is high and they’ve failed to call on several triggered alarms. Happy to DIY, but reliability is a must. UPDATE: Thanks for all the info. One other question. Can anyone confirm for me how the camera monitoring works with the $25 monthly package? I’ve read conflicting reports, some of which say you can record with unlimited cameras on the $25 plan, whereas it seems to read in places on their site that you also have to…

I am trying to find the manual for this tag reader at my work

I’m not sure if this is the right place but here it is. I am working for the security team and we do not have any of the packaging for this camera. The issue we have been having is that we used to get a better clear image of the tags, but randomly everything stopped. The camera has zoom and focusing options but neither are getting the same picture we used to. It’s not very old either which is the concern. It also was not cheap. Our last place to…

I need to replace my dreadful 240p cameras at my house…looking into a 4k system but I have no idea how to install, etc. Help?

Hi all. My house came with an ADT DVR and 4 cameras. The resolution is dreadful, and makes them almost worthless unless the subject were to walk right up to them. Furthermore, there are several blindspots, meaning I will probably need an additional four cameras to cover the entire yard. I don’t know the first thing about wiring, so that would need to be done by a professional. What I do know is that I want 4k resolution and easy app access, along with the ability to record remotely. I’d…
