Outdoor wireless security camera
5

kelf1 · 21/11/2020 09:08

Hi,

Does anybody have any views on the best outdoor security camera.

I am looking for an outdoor camera (3 camera set) which is wireless (no drilling wires through walls) and powered by a rechargeable battery. Ideally I would like to record the pictures at home rather than use the cloud.

I have looked at various reviews and most are mixed.

I would welcome any view from personal experience.

Many thanks in advance/

We have Ring and have had no problems.

Batteries last weeks, clear pictures. Simple to set up

Blink from Amazon. Always have offers on - join their mailing list or wait for Black Friday. Clips are stored on your phone. I think you can view them on an Alexa with a screen as it's all Amazon. Two AA batteries, and you can get inside or outside ones.

Ours is cables as we would forget batteries, it records to a hard drive you can view locally or anywhere via internet app.
Great care must be taken with positioning
Some good advice here

How would you cage the big up camera batteries?
Consider if viewing remotely as it uses loads of data.
