Looking for feedback on another home monitoring system. @Dropcam @canary @blinkforhome Any suggestions?

Different people have different requirements for home monitoring systems, it all depends on the features that are important to you.

Search the forums for security or cameras and you’ll find a lot of discussion.

Here’s a recent topic that discussed some of the alternatives:

You should also check the camera FAQ:

Thanks. Hate to say something that will not require a subscription.

For setups without a subscription, see the camera FAQ.

drop cam doesn’t require a subscription. I turn the recording on when I know I will be away. The rest of the time I just stream or capture stills. I’m happy with it, but I have the original version. I don’t like that light changes set off the motion sensor and I don’t like the noise it makes when it switches from night vision to regular. Since our TV is in frame, it happens a lot if the lights are off.

I am interested in arlo. Which does’t require a subscription for a few days recording.

I am going to reiterate (from Twitter) an endorsement for Scout Alarm.

Was that a subtle hint?
