UPDATE: And just like that, it’s sold out. Here’s a good alternative from the same brand that has some similar features:
EARLIER: The YI Cloud Home Camera is easily one of our favorite home security cameras that is available right now. It typically sells for $55 on Amazon but you get features common to cameras that cost three or four times that much. On top of 1080p streaming and all the other features you would expect from any modern camera, this model can pan and zoom using the free companion app on iOS or Android. But our favorite part is the motion detection feature, which alerts you to motion, automatically begins recording and streaming, and automatically tracks the motion to pan around itself and follow the subject. It’s Amazon’s deal of the day today, so it’s available at its lowest price ever — just $39.99.
