THE WINNER Logitech Circle 2
Plenty of storage combined with plenty of features
The Nest Cam IQ is expensive at £299, although its 4K sensor does provide excellent image quality and useful features such as track-and-zoom. However, Nest’s reliance on paid subscriptions for online storage and other advanced features can be costly in the long run.
Netgear’s Arlo Pro is the same price, but it provides a weatherproof camera, one week of free storage and a super-loud siren for extra protection. At £200, D-Link’s Omna stands out with its HomeKit support, although that really isn’t essential for a security camera at the moment. At that price, Netatmo’s facerecognition features may prove more useful, especially for hectic family homes.
The most affordable cameras are clearly the Nokia Home and Logitech Circle at £170. Some people will like the Home’s air quality features, but the Circle 2 is more versatile, with a weatherproof design that you can use indoors or outdoors, and a well designed app that together make it one of the most versatile security cameras currently available.
