99View at Walmart?Like its older sibling the Arlo Pro, the Arlo Pro 2 has motion detection, night vision and an intercom function, but the Pro 2 has a higher resolution 1080p vs. 720p with a wider 130 degree field of view. The Arlo Pro 2 can be plugged in or run off battery power, and can last for up to six months without needing a recharge. You'll also get Arlo's generous cloud subscription plan, which offers seven days' worth of footage for free. Read our full Arlo Pro 2 review. 99View at AmazonLow Stock$179. 15View at Walmart Marketplace?Excellent low light daytime videoEasy to set up and useStrong smart home compatibilityHighest cloud monitoring feesAverage nighttime video qualityNo scheduled recording optionsOur tests revealed that the Nest Cam Indoor works best in low light during the day, and it does well recording well lit rooms, too. We had some issues during our nighttime tests – as objects close to the camera were washed out by the LED – but nothing that would be a deal breaker for most home security scenarios. We especially like the simplicity of Nest's mobile app, which makes it relatively easy to set up the camera using a QR code. The Nest app also lets you view videos and control other Nest products, and this model works with more smart home devices than other security cameras, including the August Smart Lock, IFTTT, Philips Hue and Scout Alarm. Nest Cam's audio records well enough for most people, but it wasn't as clear as the Foscam C2 and the Flir FX.

If you have additional Nest gear at home such as a Nest thermostat things get even savvier, as you can configure the Protect to shut off your ventilation system if it detects smoke, a potential life saver. First is the concept of the smart battery: Rather than replace the entire alarm, a smart battery simply replaces the 9 volt cell inside your smoke detector. The battery contains a Wi Fi radio that can communicate with your home network and a companion smartphone app. The battery also includes a microphone that listens for the smoke alarm into which it has been installed. When the alarm goes off, the battery leaps into action and handles the “smart” side of things, working much like a standalone detector. At present, there is only one smart battery on the market: the Roost Smart Battery. It’s not a perfect solution, but at just $35, it’s much more affordable than a standalone smart smoke detector. If your budget is limited, it’s definitely worth a look. A similar idea comes in the form of the smart listener. Again, the idea here is that you don’t rip out your existing smoke detectors, you just install an extra piece of hardware that can listen for an alarm going off and alert your phone if it hears one, turning a traditional alarm system into a smart one. This is different from the Roost battery because the alerter simply plugs into a power outlet there’s no battery backup, however, so if the power goes out, the device won’t be able to hear the siren.

But note that you cannot get remote viewing or monition detection alerts without Internet.

If not, adding additional equipment can be fairly inexpensive.
