Many homeowners these days are turning to consumer grade security cameras that can be easily set up from out of the box. While these devices were once luxuries for expensive homes and businesses, they are now much more accessible and affordable to the typical consumer. In this blog post, I’ll go over a few of the simplest and most stylish security cameras on the market that marry a simplicity of installation/operation with a reliable level of functionality and security.
This camera allows users to operate it simply from right out of the box. The device involves Internet Protocol technology that also includes air quality and humidity sensors, a microphone, and a siren. It streams live video feeds to any of your devices or computers, and saves footage on cloud storage for up to a month’s time. It includes a mobile application that allows you to control the camera’s functions from anywhere – or set the alarm, to startle and discourage any burglar who you may be watching attempt to access your home from a remote location.
These cameras are easy to install, and have an extremely high definition 1080p video quality. They can be integrated with other smart home technology, and work directly with your normal home Wi-Fi. The Nest cam can be easily set up by placing it on a stand or wall mount, so there’s no need to hire a professional installer. All in all, it’s combination of high quality live video streaming and simple streamlined installation has made it a success among homeowners everywhere.
This wireless security camera works seamlessly with a pre existing Wi-Fi network, and allows for remote monitoring of your home or office. The only set up needed involves setting it down on any surface, and downloading the Homeboy application onto your smartphone. Then, simply create an account, charge the camera and wall base, and mount it by pressing the wall base into any surface for 30 seconds – and then after an hour (it needs to set itself firmly) attach your Homeboy onto the base.
This second Bird themed easy to use surveillance camera has a large range of motion (up to 180 degrees) as well as built in motion sensors, and a loud siren that functions to alert neighbors (and scare burglars) in the event of any home invasion. It works with a mobile application that allows for live video feed viewing, and can be integrated with other smart home devices. Installation is easy – simply remove it from the detachable included stand, and load it up with AA batteries (also included.) Then, simply connect the power cord, reattach the stand, and set it anywhere you want. You also have the option of using a wall mount instead of a stand that gives you more control over where the camera is placed. Then, simply turn it on, download the app, and enjoy the peace of mind in knowing your home is well protected.

This wireless security camera can be used outside, since it’s constructed with weatherproof technology. The only downside to this is that the resolution is somewhat less powerful than that in other security cameras of it’s ilk, however it’s versatility of placement (outdoor applications are very important in order to maintain a full level of security) makes it a contender even against some of the more high resolution cameras on the market.
