DIY SMART HOME SECURITY CAMERAS | My Picks



what's up guys home security cameras isn't something new yet still many people don't have any I've tested about a dozen different products and I'm going to show you what worked best for me so without further ado let's get started so let's start from the outside of your home first the place that possibly gets the most traffic is your front door so it only makes sense this area is monitored 24/7 and for this I recommend the ring video doorbell the installation process takes about 10 to 15 minutes and all the required tools are included it's powered by either it's 5200 milliamp internal rechargeable battery or through the existing doorbell wiring should you decide not to use your home's doorbell wiring ring claims a battery should last up to 12 months and when you're done installing ring video doorbell you'll need to download the app to your iOS or Android device to connect ring to your home's Wi-Fi network setup takes a few minutes and it's very straightforward let me give you guys a quick walkthrough on what the ring video doorbell is capable of doing the ring video doorbell allows you to stream live video and audio from your front doorstep directly to your smartphone or tablet and it does is when certain events happen because it's equipped with built-in motion sensors they can detect movement and it'll instantly trigger a notification to your device and allow you to see a live video stream of your front door you'll also see two call-to-action buttons one of them is to accept and the other is to deny if you push to accept you'll be able to communicate with the other person if you push on deny it will just exit the livestream the video is being captured by a built-in 720p wide-angle lens that has 180 degree field of view and it has a range of up to 30 feet now within the app you can set up motion detection zones and also the range now this can be useful if you want to exclude certain areas like for example the left side of your house let's say a lot of times kids are playing in that area there's a yard and you want to get notifications every time it's being triggered or in my case I had to adjust the ring because every time a car would pass by I would get a notification another way ring video doorbell gets triggered is by someone pushing on the doorbell similar to when it detects motion you'll get an instant notification on your device asking if you'd like to accept or deny and this can be useful as it gives the illusion that someone is home by accepting you can communicate with the person at your front door without you having to be at home how can I help you dee brown scans ah do you have anything for the galaxy s6 as a matter of fact I actually do I have one Biasi s6 in this beautiful wood and then one for the iPhone thickness tight black leather you're gonna be oh man for sure I'm gonna be right down man now for any reason you missing notification you can enable cloud video recording for $3 a month or $30 a year which allows you to go back view and download up to six months of previous events and they do offer a 30-day free trial for all new customers since only the ring video doorbell I've noticed shipping companies have been very polite with my deliveries and have been setting my boxes down gently it's also convenient being able to see when my packages arrive my only complaint is that there's no API for developers and also there's no IFTTT integration so it cannot communicate with other smart devices in my home though it's not a deal breaker it is its biggest drawback but what about inside of your home what kind of security should you have as I stated in the beginning of this video I tested out many different products both inside and outside to see which one works best and although some seem like a great idea including having an all-in-one solution they were clunky didn't work as advertised or kept dropping offline and didn't really offer any real home security where I personally recommend it so after trying several systems the I camera keep from a smart alarm was the most consistent and offers the best value for your money at one hundred and fifty dollars it's cheaper than Dropcam cheaper than Piper and much cheaper than canary the setup process took less than three minutes to get it up and running and their app is relatively easy to use and it gets better with every update so that's a good thing but what makes the AI camera keep useful is all of its built-in features in such a small form factor it has a 720p camera that is able to pen 350 degrees and you can also tilt up and down 40 degrees all which can be easily controlled through their app by swiping in the direction you want to see you can also pair multiple eye camera keeps and place them in areas around your home or in certain rooms that you want to monitor you don't just have to rely on having one the eye camera keep also has infrared LEDs to give you night vision so you don't have to worry about placing it in a well-lit room I've actually even used it as a baby monitor and has worked great speaking of baby monitor you can set up to be alerted if I camera keep detects any sound or motion and you can also adjust the sensitivity so if there's any sound or motion that's being detected you will be notified on your smart phone now where I camera keep really shines compared to all of the other products I tested is that it's fully modular you can buy the ice smart alarm preferred package home security system which includes the cube one two door or window sensors one motion sensor and to remote tags and this will allow you to take full advantage of their home security system without having to pay any monthly fees or be stuck on a contract oh yeah and it also has IFTTT integration so it's able to play nice with other products and I'm able to customize my experience with it too now I've done a full review on the ice smart alarm and also the eye camera key which I recommend you watch if you're interested in knowing more about them I'm going to leave pricing and availability of all of the products I spoke about today down below including some of my comments to the other products that I tested that I just felt we're ready for primetime so if you guys want to read on that make sure you read the description anyhow guys I hope you enjoyed this video and if you did hit that like button as it does help out the channel thanks for watching and you'll catch me in the next one adios yes how can I help you bacon do you have any samples yeah yeah man I'm gonna be right
