IN AN IN­CREAS­INGLY smart-home fo­cused world, net­work cam­eras are an easy and af­ford­able way to add an­other layer to your se­cu­rity as well as pro­duc­tiv­ity. Sure, mon­i­tor­ing your home and get­ting alerts for move­ment or sound gives ex­tra peace of mind, but net­work cam­eras can also be used to check on pets, or see if that pack­age you had been wait­ing for has fi­nally been de­liv­ered.

Im­por­tantly, the cam­eras are de­signed to be very sim­ple to use and set up, but still give a range of handy func­tion­al­ity. Al­most all mod­els use Wi-Fi to link into your net­work, and can be viewed and man­aged from a web browser or smart­phone app. You can get to­tally hands on with mon­i­tor­ing, or leave it all on au­to­matic and only get alerts if some­thing is de­tected. Many can even be set to record footage to a home NAS, or to cloud stor­age. Net­work cam­eras are not just for home own­ers ei­ther — most mod­els can be set up on desks or shelves and eas­ily moved around, with no per­ma­nent in­stall needed.

To help make find­ing the right model eas­ier, we tested 10 of the most af­ford­able op­tions avail­able right now.
