    "I've had my car broken into several times in the past, so I had enough and bought a Zmodo Smart Wireless Security Camera System. I set them up right by my car and house doors. Now if it ever happens again, I have footage of the event. Definitely worth it if you need a home security camera system."

    "I picked up the Canary Flex to test out for securing my home a bit better. I was a bit worried about having to go through a ton of footage to see movement, but this uses a geofence to only show you when things have moved within a certain area - for example, close to my house. It's much more convenient to narrow down what footage I need to be looking at. The app is also very easy to use; it's colourful and engaging, but still lets me find what I want, when I want it. I also love the magnetic attaching base; it makes moving and removing the camera easy to do, which is good because I haven't fully decided exactly where I'd like to place it. Overall, I like this camera very much, and I'm glad I settled on this option."

While the product is no longer available on the website provided it is hard to get a good grasp, but based completely on the description it seems like something that someone looking for a home security camera system would be looking for.

    "The GW Security 8-Channel Video Security System is very pricey, but it has done a good job as a security system. It comes with a bunch of cameras which should be able to cover whatever you need it to provided you don't live in some kind of McMansion, or non-Euclidean structure. "

    "Synchs easily to one's smartphone, which allows one to tilt the camera by moving a finger around the screen. It offers good night performance, although there may be some glare issues that are tricky to resolve. Indeed, many of the features require a bit of research/trial and error, but once it's up and running, it works well with good resolution. "

    "For the price, I feel like you can get a better system somewhere local. It works great, but it's a pretty hefty price tag for something you have to install yourself. "

    "This is really good inexpensive home security camera. It has good picture quality and a cool design. what I liked most about this security camera is that it was really easy to set up and it is wireless. The only thing I didn't really like about it is that it has to have a direct power supply because it doesn't have an internal battery. Other than that it is a really good home security camera"

    "This is ok if you wanted wireless and battery powered, but the distance sensing on this is really inconsistent. Sometimes it registers movement from 15 ft away, other times it senses nothing even if you're right next to it. A little flighty for what I paid for it, so I think I might try something else."

    "I was looking around for a home security system, and I would say the SafeMart GE Simon XT is the best if you want a hassle-free setup that isn't too expensive. Unlike other systems, there isn't a lot of wiring or complicated setup that requires an installer to certify. Up front costs are a little high but the monthly isn't too bad."
