Home security cameras are one of the most essential parts of any home security system, but many people don’t want or need a whole security system. They just want a Wi-Fi camera to help them see what’s going on at home when they’re away. The answer: a DIY home security camera.
Do you want to see what your dog is doing during the day? Maybe you want to make sure your teenagers aren’t throwing a party while you’re away for a weekend. Today, there are plenty of DIY home security options that work in conjunction with smartphones, tablets and computers. That way, you can check in on your home, whether you’re sitting in your office or soaking up the sun on a beach that’s 3,000 miles away.
A complete security system can be costly. If all you need is a little peek at the living room now and then, there are a variety of stand-alone security cameras that are inexpensive, easy to set up, and can work alone — as well as in pairs. Whether you opt to set up one camera in the living room or outfit the entire house, these security solutions can save you from any post-vacation surprises left behind by thieves, vandals, and even Mother Nature.
