    "Piper nv Smart Home is the perfect indoor security camera system. I love it because there are no monthly fees which is good for a girl on a budget! There's no pesky contracts to deal with either. It's easy to use and simple to set up. It sends email/text alerts to my smartphone so I feel really secure because I can check in from my phone as well. They have got every detail covered as it pertains to protection!"

    "These are great little cameras! We installed 8 of them around the property, and they work beyond our expectations. The integrated audio is especially nice. I'd admit, the wife and I may have made a couple of very private videos to test these, and I just can't speak highly enough about them!"

    "The Nest Cam security camera offers easy setup and usability, as even a low-tech individual such as myself was able to get the product up and running quickly. The camera's wide-angle lens and crystal-clear 1080p resolution are truly high-def, and the night vision is unbeatable. These features don't come cheap, though. At $199, the Nest Cam is a bit of an investment, and additional benefits and add-ons cost extra. Still, with Nest Aware, you can store up to 30 days of footage in the cloud, and you'll get app enhancements such as more-sensitive motion alerts."

    "The Vimtag VT-361 is nothing less than amazing. I finally upgraded my security system with the Vimtag VT-361 camera and the advantages are almost too numerous to list. The most impressive thing is the night vision feature. I feel more secure about my home when I am away as I can check in remotely with any android or apple device. I just wish I would not have waited so long to upgrade!"

    "This security system has a DVR Kit , which is equipped with four channels and four 800 TVL bullet security cameras you'll have your home or business under surveillance in no time. My wife wanted to purchase a security monitoring service and after doing some research I was unimpressed with reviews and the cost for the services from many companies in my area, so I decided to buy and install my own. I have set the cameras to record motion only during the day and constant record at night. It took about six hours to install all 4 cameras with most of that time being spent crawling through tight spaces in my attic to connect the wires into the video cameras. The time spent setting up the equipment was maybe 30 minutes. I was also very happy to see that I could hook this up to my television and now with the push of a button I can see all four cameras on my television screen. This is great for checking the front door when there is an unexpected visitor, or to see what the noise was in my backyard. "

    "This camera is for outdoor use. I suppose you could use it indoors, but I'm not sure if it would have the features you wanted. Waterproofing is one of the first features mentioned, but you would not need that indoors. I'm not sure if it would be worth the hassle of installing this thing indoors. With so many cheap, easy to use indoor camera options, I do not think it would be a good choice to buy this one."

    "I recently started a restaurant in my hometown and I wanted to provide myself and my customers with a sense of security, so I installed the Zmodo Smart Wireless Security Camera System in the restaurant. They were super-easy to install and I was able to configure them in about 1 hour with only the manual. Once installed, I told my employees that the cameras were "just for show" and didn't record anything. However, I was continuously collecting video... I managed to catch one employee stealing from the cash register and another employee having her boyfriend join her in the kitchen area. This camera system has saved me a lot of headache and helped me to pinpoint a couple of bad apple employees that otherwise might have spoiled the whole bunch."

The two way audio was an added feature, as well as the clear night vision (our last one was so grainy you couldn't see anything). Overall, this suited our needs perfectly."

    "When we started having trouble with unwanted people on our property and missing mail from our hallway I decided to get a security camera. The Reolink Argus came up in my search. It was not the cheapeest option, at around $100 for a single camera. However, it is easily the best option in my pinion. It is totally wireless which makes it easy to use anywhere. It offers high definition video and includes audio. The motion sensor is perfect, it's not too touchy to pick up everything, but is sensitive enough to capture what you need. One thing to bear in mind is that it is battery powered so You can't really set it and forget it for months at a time. I wouldn't suggest putting it somewhere that is too difficult to retrieve it from."
