The Nest Cam is well-designed and very easy to set up and use, but it also costs a small fortune compared to comparable home security cameras. That’s fine if you have plenty of expendable income, but those of us on a budget might benefit from looking elsewhere. Here’s a perfect example: Amazon has 3-packs of the Funlux 720p HD WiFi Wireless Home Security Camera on sale for just $80, which means you can buy six of these cameras and cover your entire home for less than the cost of one Nest Cam.

Here are some highlights from the product page:
