Cloud-based Outdoor Security Camera
There are lots of security camera options out there which all require varying degrees of technical capability and additional hardware... Nest's cloud-based, wi-fi enabled camera solution is straightforward, easy to use, and easy to set up (although it does require a subscription fee in order to save clips).
The live camera feeds are also accessible via the Nest app which can also control the Nest Protect and Nest thermostat. This is the outdoor version of their popular indoor camera, which can withstand weather and still wirelessly connect to the cloud as long as your wifi network is within range.
You may also want to consider an Eero wifi router to help extend your home network further. We also recommend this colored silicone sleeve, which makes the camera a little less of an eyesore at night and in more natural environments.
