  • Before you go and spend $200 on a single Nest Cam, there are home security cameras on Amazon that you really need to check out
  • The Wyze Cam and the YI Home Camera 3 both have all the same important features you would get with a Nest Cam, but they each cost $25 instead of $200.
  • At that price, you can buy eight of either one of these great home camera models and cover your entire home instead of ending up with a single Nest Cam that covers a single room.

It’s difficult to focus on anything other than the novel coronavirus outbreak right now, and that’s certainly understandable. It’s the most important thing happening in the world and it will continue to be for months and months to come. The United States now has more confirmed COVID-19 cases than any other country in the world and that’s in spite of the fact that only a fraction of people exhibiting symptoms can get tested since there’s still such a shortage on coronavirus tests. It’s bad and getting worse, but we also have to remember that life goes on and we have more than just the coronavirus to protect ourselves and our families from.

Amazon has two great deals right now on home security cameras that are just as good as a $200 Nest Cam for a tiny fraction of the price. The first is the Wyze Cam, which has all the main features you might want as well as 14 days of free cloud storage for around $25. The second one is on the Yi Home Camera 3, which costs the same amount but comes with 7 days of cloud storage instead of 14.

While the Wyze Cam has double the free cloud storage, the Yi camera has a slight edge in terms of functionality. On top of all the main features you’d get with the Wyze Cam, the YI Home Camera 3 also includes advanced AI features like person detection and even sound analytics.

As for the Wyze Cam 1080p HD smart home camera, it’s always a great value and it comes with 14 days of free cloud storage for free. That’s not a limited-time trial, mind you — you’ll enjoy free cloud storage for as long as you own your cameras. As we also mentioned, Wyze cameras are still shipping out right away on Amazon despite the retailer still delaying deliveries for some nonessentials. You’ll pay just $25.98 or $23 per camera if you buy a 2-pack, and they’ll be on your doorstep in a few days.
