Mac Format - - APPLE CHOICE -

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.
