Need a wifi security camera. Any recommendations?

Basically I need 2 of these for home security. Both will be indoors. I am looking for something with cloud storage. I don't need top of the line gear. Just something to use when I vacation occasionally. Thanks.

I use the Arlo Q. Could not be easier to set up and use. App monitoring and alerts. Scheduling. Good sensitivity. I really like it.

I'm also using a Arlo. I believe it is a pro. They come in a bunch of configs. The one I bought has a base station and 1 camera. The base station is connected to my router. The camera is wireless. The picture quality is pretty good both in light and night vision.

You get free cloud storage for 7 days. You can buy more storage. You can also connect a usb drive to the base station to hold video for longer than 7 days.

I only had it setup for two days now. I don't like app but it is usable. The main problem is I get you are not connected notices that don't go away even if I am connected. I have nexus 6p that constantly transfers over to free wi-fi. So for half a second or so I don't have connection. Sometimes this is long enough to give me the notice. I have to restart the phone to get rid of the notice. Note this is only cosmetic. Even with the notice I can see what is going on from my phone and arm and disarm the arlo.

The one I have also has a alarm. Not all of them have a alarm. I bought the arlo to replace a canary that was complete garbage.

You might also want to consider setting up a raspberry pi with motion eye. You can find step by step instructions on the net.

I have two 720p pan and tilt Foscams. They sell for about $60 and can do Cloud Storage, and microSD cards.

I don't use the Cloud Storage, but have no issues with them.

Re: Need a wifi security camera. Any recommendations?

I have used Foscam wireless cameras. they were a bit of a pain to setup with my router but it was nice to be able to record the feed int o my NAS at scheduled times or get phone notifications if movement was detected
