It’s pretty crazy what companies get away with when they have a little brand recognition — like charging $200 for a home security camera that probably cost about $11 to make. Luckily there are some fantastic options out there that are just as good as a Nest Cam at a fraction of the price. Our favorite is the Wyze Cam 1080p HD Indoor Wireless Smart Home Camera, which streams 1080p and has all of the same main features as the Nest Cam. In fact, there are only two main differences: The Wyze Cam comes with 14 days of free cloud storage, and it costs $26 instead of $200.
