Everyone wants to feel secure, particularly when it comes to their home. This desire for safety has created an entire home security industry. While a home security system is great for your peace of mind, it might not be such a great fit for your budget. Traditional security systems often have multiple costs, including monthly fees for monitoring services and security camera cloud storage, not to mention the upfront cost of installation. Fortunately, there is another option. Smart home cameras are easy to use, easy to install and provide you with an affordable alternative to expensive home security systems.
What are the Best Indoor Smart Home Cameras?
Smart home cameras give you a variety of competitively-priced home security options. A Geeni indoor Wi-fi-enabled camera costs as little as $44.99, making it one of the best home security camera options without a monthly fee. These cameras deliver clear, fast HD livestream footage directly to your smartphone via the Geeni app. They’re also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana and include a built-in motion sensor that alerts you if there’s movement in your home.
The Geeni Pan and Tilt Indoor Camera is another great option. It has a pan and tilt feature that allows you to see what’s happening anywhere in the room, all while recording and storing footage. Plus, it comes with a built-in mic and speakerphone, which allows you to monitor audio or speak directly to anyone in the room.
