I think that I need just one or two camera to cover the front and maybe side of my house. Night vision would be nice. They obviously need wifi so I can monitor things on my phone or PC. Let’s say that the use case is to catch or deter vandals. I want to record when they detect movement, especially at night. A doorbell cam won’t work because the doorbell is perpendicular to the door and points to the side of the garage.
My understanding is that Arlo, Nest and Ring are the main choices. I already have a Nest thermostat and smoke detector which is a minor reason to go with a Nest but I am not married to that.
What do you think?
