Throw in free cloud storage, an SD card slot for local storage, and support for IFTTT integration, and you've got a killer indoor security cam. Founded by former Amazon employees, Wyze Labs has been around for less than two years, but in that time it's managed to snag two Editors' Choice awards for its first two product offerings, the original Wyze Cam and its successor, the Wyze Cam V2. The company's latest offering, the Wyze Cam Pan, continues the trend. Priced at just $29. 99, it offers all of the features of the earlier models, such as motion and sound detection, time lapse recording, and free cloud storage, and it adds mechanical pan and tilt and support for IFTTT applets. That makes it our Editors' Choice for affordable home security cameras.

Released in August 2018 for $349Arlo Security System: This system uses the Arlo SmartHub and works with Arlo Multi Sensors, the Arlo Siren and the Arlo Remote. The most interesting devices in the system are the Arlo Multi Sensors, which are similar to the Nest Detect sensors in that they can act as both motion detectors and entry sensors on doors and windows. They can also detect water leaks and the temperature, and they alert you when smoke and carbon monoxide detectors go off.
