Home security is one of those things many people don’t think about until it’s too late, but it’s so easy to add even a small amount of security. Seeing an outdoor camera will make a lot of would-be ne’er-do-wells think twice before trying to break in; after all, a home with a camera is too much work. The Zmodo Outdoor Security cameras are currently almost 50% off, bringing the price of the cameras down to just $20 each (or $40 for the listed pack). You’ll get two cameras that can be mounted anywhere outside your home and can pinpoint trouble before it starts.
The Zmodo Outdoor Cameras work with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. You can just ask your smart display to show your camera, and you can easily view on something like the Echo Show 15 or the Nest Home Hub. The Zmodo App lets you access the camera feed at any time, from anywhere.
You’ll receive notifications if the cameras pick up motion, but if you sign up for the Zmodo cloud subscription service, you can see video clips. It also lets you store up to seven days of footage in the cloud. New customers can try the subscription plan out for free, after which the cost starts at $4.99 per month. That’s relatively affordable, and it even comes with AI identification, so the camera can discern whether it sees a person, an animal, or a car.
One customer said it was a great value. “Easy set up, walks you through it. It is also easy to mount. Night vision is a good quality also day vision. The app is easy to use and navigate. I am thinking of getting one camera for indoor use that is offered.”
“These cameras systems are great. They connect to your home WiFi and have an app for you to view while away. The night vision works great. The picture quality is wonderful as long as you set it in the perfect spot . They are rotating so you turn and maneuver any which you and direction as you please. The app lets you toggle off your notifications,” said one customer who actually bought two sets. “Downside is you have to pay and subscribe for 24 hour cloud coverage if not you can only view so many seconds of footage at a certain timeframe. Other than that these are wonderful cameras to add extra protection around anywhere you choose.”
Normally $75 for a two-pack, these cameras are on sale now for just $40, bringing the price of individual cameras down to just $20 each. That’s an absolute steal — and it might stop something from being stolen off your porch!
