Test 3 Security
Extra protections revealed
There’s a lot to differentiate the cameras when it comes to security. The Netatmo is unique in offering facial detection, but make sure you keep motion detection enabled as it’s easy to bypass by covering your face. Elsewhere, the Canary, Kodak, Withings and Arlo Q offer adjustable motion sensitivity settings, with the latter two also capable of adjusting audio sensitivity.
The Arlo Q goes further again with its support for finetuning camera behaviour using rules. You can also define up to three motion detection zones within the camera’s field of view for more granular control. Both Logi Circle and Arlo Q allow you to switch off their status lights so they appear dead. The Canary deserves a special mention for its wide field of view and 90db siren, which you can trigger remotely.
