Home security cameras have become very popular in recent years, and it’s pretty obvious why. For a relatively low price, you can have instant access to see what’s going on in your home from anywhere in the world. These devices stream live video to any iPhone, iPad or Android device, and most support high-definition resolution as well. But if they all offer similar features, why would you ever pay $150 or $200 for one when you can get the YI Home Camera Wireless IP Security Surveillance System for $30 shipped?
