Choosing  The Right System

Most people will start their search for a security camera based on the installation location. Where do you need security cameras? If you live in a house with front and back yards, you can benefit from installing one of the best outdoor cameras. Video doorbells, otherwise known as doorbell cameras, may also come in handy in monitoring your front door. The point here is that you can mix and match different security camera types to achieve optimal home security. Our list of the best doorbell cams might help you pick a suitable doorbell camera.

  • Indoor Cameras: Indoor cameras, which typically cost around $100, should be placed on the ground level of your home at the very least. Avoid private areas like bathrooms or bedrooms, but cover any area that’s easily accessible, like a front hallway, or any area that’s central to your home, like a living room. Indoor cameras are more likely to be plug-in than outdoor cameras, which may not be near an outlet. Most indoor cameras require Wi-Fi or an internet connection, except a few that connect and record directly to a DVR or NVR. And even most NVR- and DVR-connected cameras these days connect to the internet to provide you with remote alerts.
  • Outdoor Cameras: Outdoor cameras, on the other hand, tend to cost around $200. The reason? They come with weather-resistant cases so that they can withstand large temperature ranges as well as various solids and liquids, be it rain, snow, hail or dust. How you determine how durable a camera is will depend on the IP rating, which we detail below in our buying guide. Unlike indoor cameras, outdoor cameras are more likely to be wireless — meaning that they’re powered by batteries and connect to Wi-Fi — due to fewer outdoor outlets; check out our list of the best outdoor wireless cameras to explore your options. But one thing that is important to note is that wireless cameras may still require the internet.
