Consumer Reports recommends the best video security systems for a variety of situations, according to Dan Wroclawski, home editor for Consumer Reports.
The first up is the Nest Hello video doorbell for $230. It has 24/7 continuous recording and alerts and offers several paid video storage options.
Consumer Reports suggests the top-rated Arlo Pro 2 for $220 security camera which offers several video storage plans. One of the plans is a free one. There are also other packages with additional cameras at additional expenses depending on your security needs.
According to Wroclawski “Smart door locks are super convenient because they allow you to lock and unlock your door from anywhere. So if you have guests coming for the holidays and you’re not home, you can let them in with just a tap of a button on your smartphone.”
Wroclawski also said, “DIY home security systems are a great option because most of them don’t require you to sign up for a long multi-year contract.”
For that job, the $200 Ring Alarm Kit Five Piece Home Security System is your best bet. It’s set up is hassle-free and comes with all the things you need to start your at-home security system.
