Due to the enormous advancement in technology especially in the last decade, the drop in prices and the vast field of possibilities to choose from, the home security and video surveillance systems have become extremely affordable and available, while keeping the cost at bay. There are wireless security cameras that cost merely next to nothing, and whole video surveillance systems that cost less than a high-class smartphone.

Of course, there are high-quality products, and there are products that reek of Chinese cheapness, but nevertheless, here are the 15 best wireless security cameras Amazon for 2017.

1. Nest Cam Indoor Security Camera

Sale
Nest Cam Indoor security camera
  • 24/7 live video: 130° wide-angle view and all-glass lens let you look after home in 1080p HD, day and night.
  • Alerts and snapshots: When Nest Cam detects activity, it can send a phone alert or email with a photo of the event.
  • Quick, easy setup: Plug in Nest Cam and download the Nest app to get started. No hub needed.

This is one of the best wireless security cameras available on the market at the moment.

It comes with a 130o wide-angle lens, 1080p full HD, motion detection, night vision and two-way audio.

Naturally, there is a way to connect wireless security camera 1080p to your mobile device, so alerts and video feed are always within your grasp.  If you just subscribe to the Nest Aware service, you will get 24/7 continuous recording for 10 or 30 days. Otherwise, you have 24/7 video streaming available, but no records are kept.

The only negative side so far it the price, but having in mind that we are talking about a high-quality product, one must weigh the many pros against the very few cons, and make an informed decision.

2. YI Dome Camera

Sale
YI Dome Camera Pan/Tilt/Zoom Wireless IP Security Surveillance System 720p HD Night Vision (US Edition)
  • 720p High-definition, 112° wide-angle advanced glass lens combined with 345° horizontal & 115° vertical rotation range...
  • Responsive and advanced microphone with a built-in anti-noise filter for a clear 2-way Audio experience. Intercom Mode: one...
  • Receive real-time Activity Alerts while you're out. 10-sec motion tracking records and centers the moving object. Bookmark...

Affordability, thy name be “YI”… This is one of the wireless security cameras available on the market, which delivers serious specs and possibilities, at a merely ridiculous price.

It combines an 112o wide-angle lens with a 345o horizontal and 115o vertical rotation to provide a full 360o coverage of the area.

The microphone has a built-in anti-noise filter, which improves the two-way audio experience, while the unobtrusive advanced night vision system makes this camera an ideal choice for a baby monitor. This wireless security camera with night vision can be mounted on the ceiling, on the wall, on vertically standing. Motion detection sensor and smartphone connectivity boxes have also been ticked.

No cloud storage options are available at the moment, but the video can be saved locally on a microSD card.

The user can set “bookmarks” which are essentially preset for desired angles of coverage since the lens can be moved to provide a 360o coverage.

The only negative side (if it may even be considered as a negative) is the 720p HD video stream. But for prices at around $50, what more could anyone possibly want?

3. Zmodo Smart Wireless Security Cameras

  • Easy and Quick Setup-Zink.Power the camera and one click to complete the network configuration.Connectivity:IP/Network-2.4GHz...
  • Download free Zmodo app from Google Store or Apple Store, does not supports Windows Phones.

Keeping up with the affordability theme, here we have the representatives from Zmodo. Extremely easy to set up, expandable system by adding more cameras, 720p HD quality video stream, motion detection sensor, night vision, mobile device app, indoor and outdoor usage, low price.

That ticks pretty much all the checkboxes, right?

The relatively small viewing angle of 77o is the one thing that spoils the great first impression.

4. Wansview 1080P WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera

Sale
Wansview 1080P WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera, for Baby /Elder/ Pet/Nanny Monitor, Plug/Play, Pan/Tilt, Two-Way Audio & Night Vision Home Surveillance Camera Q1 (Black)

  • PAN/TILT: Horizontal 340 degree and vertical 90degree, 4x digital zoom, and IR LED night vision up to 26 feet.

This is another member of the “affordable” family. Namely, the Wansview camera provides a 1080p full HD quality video stream, and it utilizes motion and audio detection.

It has two-way audio, Wi-Fi antenna for better signal quality and stability, night vision, mobile device app and an SD card slot support of up to 64GB card capacity.

All of this, for a price of around $80. These kinds of specs for this amount of money makes it quite difficult to point out any cons.

5. Arlo Security System by NETGEAR

Sale
Arlo Security System - 2 Wire-Free HD Cameras, Indoor/Outdoor, Night Vision (VMS3230)
  • See in stunning clarity and sharper details with HD cameras and watch live streamed or recorded videos from your computer,...

  • Night vision cameras with HD clarity even in the dark

NETGEAR is one of the best manufacturers in the field of communication and connectivity, and with the Arlo Security System, they do not fail to deliver excellence once again.

The Arlo wireless security cameras are small, nimble, very easy to install thanks to the magnetic mounts, and also, weatherproof, which means that they can be used outdoors as well.

Motion detection sensor, night vision, expandability by adding more cameras, smart power usage and free cloud storage round up the pros. Cons consist of the 720p HD video stream and the slightly steep price tag.

Perhaps we have the right to expect a video stream with higher quality at this price.

6. Vimtag VT-361 Super HD WiFi Video Monitoring Surveillance Security Camera

  • Remarkable Field of View with Super Wide 90 degree Viewing Angle, Remote Pan/Tilt, Intelligent Digital Zoom, and IR LED Night...

This representative from the Amcrest family is one of the most popular wireless security cameras on the market today. Looking at the specs, it is easy to see why this is so.

Namely, the camera provides a full HD video feed at 30 frames per second (which is a lot, because most of the full HD camera go up to 15 frames per second), while sporting a 90o wide angle lens, two-way audio, night vision, motion detection, microSD card slot for local storage, mobile and web apps developed for every Operating System out there, optional cloud storage etc.

Even lifetime support (only in the USA) is included in the price of around $90.

 10.TENVIS JPT3815W-HD

  • Infrared Night Vision: Automatically turn on in low light and in darkness
  • Mobile Devices: Support remote viewing on mobile devices. iPhone/iPad/Android OS supported.

This camera tries to deliver all the common goods at retail price.

Since what it has to offer is pretty much in the same ballpark with most of the other wireless security cameras out on the market, the somewhat unknown manufacturer sells it at a very affordable price.

The specs list includes 720p HD video stream, the ability to pan and tilt, night vision, motion detection, iOS and Android smartphone apps and a two-way audio communication.

The price is under $50, which seems quite fair, since there no other particular reasons for choosing this camera.

Hello, and welcome to the unfathomable section of our list.

The trio from Funlux offers 720p HD video through very wide-angle 115o lenses; automatic IR LED for night vision, multi-platform support, motion detection and two-way audio.

Now let’s add the 60 days return and refund policy, the two-year warranty and lifetime tech support (US only), and state the price of around $80 for this whole package. How is that even possible? Unfathomable, right?

12. VSTARCAM Wireless Security Network IP Camera

Sale
VSTARCAM Wireless Security Network IP Camera WiFi Remote Surveillance 720P HD Indoor PTZ Pan Tilt Zoom Audio Recording Night Vision Video System Home for Baby Monitor (C7824WIP)

  • Keep an Eye and an Ear on Your Most Precious Assets: Stay in Touch with Two Way Talk Audio--Respond to what you see and hear...

At number 12 on our list, we find the VSTARCAM camera.

This one is very similar in nature to the TENVIS camera we saw previously because it hardly has any distinguishable characteristic.

It offers 720p HD quality video, two-way audio, microSD card slot for local recording, mobile device app, motion detection and night vision.

The 70o not-so-wide lens can be panned or tilted, and the camera can be mounted on the ceiling, wall or vertically standing. The price hovers around $50, which is probably the main selling point of this camera.

13. Kodak CFH-V10

Kodak CFH-V10 - HD WiFi Video Monitoring Surveillance Security Camera, Two-Way Audio, Night Vision & Free Cloud Storage
  • Lifetime 1-Day Cloud Storage - Look back on recorded video clips from the past 24 hours (included)
  • HD video quality - Watch and listen to live or recorded HD video with 2-way audio, and night vision
  • Motion-triggered notifications - Get alerts delivered instantly to your smartphone or tablet

This one is small but feisty and packs quite a punch.

And also, there is a very strong name behind it. Welcome to the intelligent surveillance world of Kodak.

This small warrior delivers 720p HD quality video, two-way audio, night vision and a highly sophisticated motion detection algorithm. More to it, it offers 128-bit SSL end-to-end protection.

Explained in plain English, this means that the security of the transferred video stream is on an extremely high level.

There is a lifetime 1-Day Cloud Storage included in the price so that you don’t miss a thing. Premium plans include a 14 or 30-day cloud storage and full utilization of the Smart Detection algorithms.

14. Dericam S1

Sale
Dericam Outdoor WiFi Wireless IP Security Camera, PTZ Camera, 4x Optical Zoom, Auto-focus, 1.3 Megapixel, Pre-installed 16GB Memory Card, S1-16G White

  • Multiple Easy and Economical Storage Options: No Hidden Cost, No Montly Fee, You can Remote Record and Playback via...
  • Easy to Setup & Use: Quick Setup via iPhone or Android Smartphone Using Free Dericam App. Remote Viewing & Configuration...

Unlike the most members on this list, the Dericam S1 is not trying to hide the fact that it is a video surveillance camera.

But while most of the previously mentioned wireless security cameras are for indoor use, this one is meant to be used outdoors.

It has a rugged, weatherproof body, and unlike any other camera on this list, it has a 4X optical zoom, where some of the others provide 4X digital zoom. For those of you that are unfamiliar with this terminology, the optical zoom is better, because it does not ruin the picture quality while zooming.

The digital zoom simply crops the picture and decreases the quality, to simulate zooming.

Anyway, the Dericam S1 provides a high-quality video stream (1280×960 resolution), powerful IR LEDs for crisp night vision images, motion detection and the possibility to remotely pan and tilt the lens, for optimal coverage, and a preinstalled 16 GB microSD card.

Naturally, there are mobile and web apps for better connectivity.

The price is a bit steep, around $150, but this is a very good and capable video surveillance hardware, and plus, there are no additional subscriptions or fees, so it balances itself out.

15. KAMTRON HD

  • Easy Set-up: Scan QR Code to download MIPC View App on App Store or Google Play. Seamlessly HD video streaming and two-way...

The last member on this list comes in a small, stylish package. The Kamtron HD ticks all the necessary boxes for an average wireless security camera.

So, it provides a 720p HD quality video stream, along with the motion detection, night vision, two-way audio, mobile device app and a microSD card slot that supports card capacity up to 64 GB.

The lens has a fairly narrow (especially compared to other members of this list) field of view of 62o, and with a price tag of around $65, it is hard to justify it over the TENVIS, YI, Veezon, or VSTARCAM cameras.
