Of all the places to put a security camera, the front door is one of the most practical and least invasive. Google's Nest makes a great option in the Hello, a connected doorbell with a camera built right in. You can get one for $164 right now on Rakuten, a whole $65 off MSRP. Read More
Arlo spun off from Netgear a while back, but it's been using the same Netgear-signed app the whole time. Starting today, there's a new Arlo app under a new Play Store listing. The updated app looks the same, but it adds an important feature in the form of two-factor authentication. Read More
When we reviewed the Arlo Ultra, we were impressed by its video quality and battery life, but found its price to be very steep. Thankfully, the product is now on sale, down to $546 ($54 off) for a two-pack, or $756 ($44) for three cameras. Read More
Smart home gadgets are futuristic in the best way. With a robot sweeping your floors, lights that set themselves automatically, and a doorbell that can tell you who's ringing, you're practically living in The Jetsons. All that automation can cost a pretty penny, though — so thank goodness for Prime Day, when just about everything you can buy online gets a little (or a lot) cheaper. Read More
Wyze offers capable home security cameras starting at just $20, but the feature set isn't on par with cameras that cost ten times as much. Wyze is taking a step closer to the likes of Nest and Arlo today thanks to its partnership with Xnor.ai. With Xnor technology, your existing Wyze cams can detect people and cut down on notification spam. Read More
When it comes to security cameras for your smart home, Arlo has the reputation of making premium products that work reliably and are easy to install — thanks to the ability to run wire-free on internal batteries. The Arlo Pro 2 is currently on sale at Best Buy and Amazon, with the four-pack going for $550 and two-pack for $299.
Although Samsung has been in the smart home game for a few years now with its SmartThings ecosystem, its lineup has mostly relied on being a central home automation hub that integrates with third-party devices like plugs and lights to automate your home. Until today, the majority of the brand's IoT products were sensors that would act as triggers, but the company is now expanding it with a smart camera, plug, and bulb, which give it a complete range of smart home products.

You've got numerous choices in connected some security cameras these days, but almost all of them require wires. Running a camera solely on batteries introduces a lot of uncertainty. Will it last long enough? Will it wake up reliably? Arlo, a former Netgear subsidiary, has released several battery-powered cameras that bested the competition, but the new Arlo Ultra is a tougher sell.
This 4K camera has a high upfront cost and higher monthly fees than other devices, but the performance is admittedly impressive. The video is incredible, and the addition of a spotlight is genuinely helpful. After some software updates, the Arlo Ultra is a good product with similar reliability to Arlo's past cameras. Read More
We recently shared a deal that let you save up to $280 on first-generation Arlo Pro cameras. Although the discount was interesting, the product was only capable of 720p video recording, which is a little outdated nowadays. If you passed and waited for an offer on security cameras with crisper image quality, you're in luck, as the second-gen Arlo Pros are currently discounted on Amazon, with a four-pack selling for $600 instead of $800. In case you rushed on last week's deal and are now regretting your purchase, let me ask: Is it too late now to say sorry? Read More
At the age of 4K screens and videos, 720p cameras almost seem outdated. Despite a lower image quality, they're still perfectly capable and way better than old-school CCTV systems. However, as new products with sharper pictures come out, the price of first-gen Arlo Pro cameras keeps dropping and has hit one of the lowest it's ever been, with a three-pack selling for $300, instead the $580 MSRP.
