The Best Outdoor Security Camera
Updated Dec 10, 2022
An outdoor security camera can be a powerful deterrent to mischief makers. It will let you know instantly whether that rustling in the bushes comes from a friend, foe, or furry creature. However, after reviewing dozens of cameras over the past five years, we’ve yet to find a perfect model. Some are hard to place, some need to be charged regularly, and others require a subscription fee to be most effective. If you want a completely cord-free option, we recommend the Arlo Pro 4 Spotlight Camera. If you want something a little cheaper and have an outdoor outlet nearby, we recommend the Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In. And if you want one that can light up the night (or at least your porch), we suggest the Eufy Floodlight Cam 2 Pro.
