The problem is that Wi-Fi cameras are not exactly TVs—you just can’t look at the picture quality and say “that’s the best” and be done with it.
There is no camera model that includes all of the best or most desirable features.
If the Logi Circle is sold out or otherwise unavailable, get the Netgear Arlo Q, which offers very good A/V and still-photo quality in bright, dim, and no light, relatively easy setup, smart and welcome geofencing alerts, unique and customizable activity zones that limit where the camera will detect motion, and free seven-day video recording and storage, all of which offset its slightly higher-than-average price.
If you’re on a tighter budget, or if two-way chatting on your Wi-Fi camera or geofencing isn’t important or necessary for you, the Blink camera costs about half as much as our other picks.
In day-to-day use, your Wi-Fi camera will be more for home monitoring than home security.
The Logi Circle offers smart geofencing, free-for-life 24-hour cloud storage (plus longer storage plans for a fee), and good-enough image quality (including excellent dim and dark room performance).To name a few: Playboy, Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, re/code, NBC-Universal, CNET, Popular Science, e Bay, Mashable, Stuff, Ubergizmo, Tom’s Guide, Digital Trends, Laptop, Techlicious, and many others both extant and, well, un-extant.I am also an elector for the Consumer Technology Association Hall of Fame and write the inductee bios and the industry’s official history.None of the indoor cameras reviewed in this guide will actually make your home more secure.A home security system, such as the ones The Wirecutter recommends here, or just some smart lighting, will do a better job of that.
